Obtain a lesser soul gem, a head of Lettuce and a ball of Yarn. Yarn and lettuce can be found in containers in any city. Lesser soul gems can be obtained in magic stores, Mage's Guild halls, dungeons or on certain types of enemies. Then, go to the shrine which is north of Leyawiin and southwest of Fort Nomore.
At the shrineEdit
Despite what Ferul Ravel, the leader of the Sheogorath followers at the shrine says, the Hero does not need to summon Sheogorath on a rainy day.
If the Shivering Isles main quest line has been started but not finished, Sheogorath will yell at the Hero for not doing the things he has told them to do on the Shivering Isles before he gives them a new "errand" to run. If the quest line is finished, Haskill will talk to them instead. If Shivering Isles has not been started, it is as if Shivering Isles is not installed and the quest proceeds normally.
Sheogorath or Haskill sends the Hero to a settlement called Border Watch. Follow the map marker and then talk to the Khajiit with a black hood named Ri'Bassa. Make sure his disposition is at least 60 and then listen to his speech about the prophecy.
If asked, S'thasa will tell a story about the collection of cheeses she has.
Regardless of whether the Hero talks to her, they will have to steal the large single cheese labeled "Olroy Cheese" in one of the display cases. There are three ways to get the cheese. Either lockpick the display case and steal the cheese, pickpocket the key from her or kill her and loot the key from her body.
After getting the cheese, go outside and put the cheese in the cooking pot in front of the inn. Wait until the rats appear.
When it's over, look for the two piles of rat poison that Ri'Bassa put down in the center of town. One will be near the cooking pot and one farther down the stairs. But be quick, as the rats will eat it and the quest will fail. Take the poison and go to the sheep corral near the inn. Put the rat poison in the sheep's feed trough. One can also just kill the six sheep, but be cautious to not do this in front of the villagers.
Wait until Sheogorath congratulates the player and tells them to wait in the center of town and watch the sky. Suddenly the sky turns red and is raining flaming dogs as the people run around in fear as they fall.
Back to the shrineEdit
Once everything is over, go back to Sheogorath's shrine to complete the quest and receive the Wabbajack.

|10||Sheogorath's followers have told me to speak with Ferul Ravel if I wish to have the Daedra summoned. [You must be level 2 to begin this quest.]
|20||Ferul Ravel has told me I'll need a lesser soul gem, a head of lettuce, and some yarn as an offering at the statue of Sheogorath.
|30||After I left the requested items at the Shrine, Sheogorath spoke to me. He told me of the settlement of Border Watch. I am to simulate a prophecy by committing two acts. I should speak to the shaman in the settlement to learn about the K'Sharra prophecy.
|40||The shaman Ri'bassa has told me of the K'Sharra Prophecy. The first sign is vermin infestation. The second sign is plague, and all the livestock are supposed to die. I will need to find a way first to create an infestation of vermin.
|45||Ri'bassa has suggested I stay at the Border Watch Inn, which apparently has a large collection of cheeses.
|47||I've placed the Olroy Cheese into the cooking pot. The smell coming from it is astounding.
|50||I have used cheese to lure many rats into Border Watch. I should speak with Ri'bassa to see if he believes this to be part of the prophecy.
|60||I have killed all the livestock in Border Watch.
|60||I have poisoned the grain supply in the town of Border Watch. This has killed all the livestock.
|65||Sheogorath has congratulated me for simulating the first two signs of the K'Sharra Prophecy. I am to go to the center of town to await the final sign.
|70||I have witnessed Sheogorath create the Plague of Fear. I should return to the Shrine.
|100||Sheogorath has rewarded me for my efforts by giving me Wabbajack.
- If the rat poison is saved, one can make a poison from it and a Poisoned Apple, though is not very strong.
- The person who created this quest is named Mark. The construction set shows that the script contains the debugging command (commented out):
;MessageBox "PLAYING LAST AUDIO AND GIVING JOURNAL. FEELING HAPPY THAT MARK MADE SUCH A COOL QUEST.
- If the player has already become the Madgod of the court of Madness, Haskill will comment on the fact that the player is praying to himself, and how this may or may not be a good sign.
This section contains bugs related to Sheogorath (Quest). Before adding a bug to this list, consider the following:
- After completing the quest, if one talks to one of the worshippers, one may get the 1st quest update again, saying you need to talk to Ravel. The quest stays finished, however.
