The Mad God's Bargain is a quest available in The Elder Scrolls Online. The Vestige and Shalidor journey to Eyevea, but Sheogorath left portals to Oblivion open and the island is covered in Daedra.

The Vestige fights Haskill. Sheogorath, who has been making Valaste slowly insane with his cursed books, offers to take her to the Shivering Isles. They can decide whether or not to save her. Talking to Shalidor reveals that Sheogorath made him the same offer years ago — the offer that cost Shalidor Eyevea. He begs them not to make the same mistake he did.
