The Man Who Spoke to Slaughterfish is a miscellaneous quest in The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind. The Nerevarine must cure Din.

AcquisitionEdit

The quest can be acquired once the Nerevarine has located Din on the road to the north of Gnisis; he will be wearing some Imperial Armor. It will be apparent that he is unwell and conversing will be difficult. To get the quest the Nerevarine should choose the dialogue options catch some slaughterfish followed by muddled to receive the option to cure him.

ObjectivesEdit

  • Speak with Din.
  • Attempt to heal him or take him to Gnisis Temple
  • Let him be cured or abandon him on the road.

WalkthroughEdit

To cure Din, the player will need some form of Cure Common Disease. Alternatively, he will follow you to the healer at Gnisis Temple and receive healing there. Completion through either method will result in the same reward: the player will receive 30 gold and a +5 to reputation with the Imperial Legion. The player can also choose to abandon him to his own fate. Din's death will complete the quest but no reward will be given.

10While traveling along the coast near Gnisis, I ran into a man who seemed very agitated, perhaps a bit mad.
20This man, Din, seems to be suffering from some sort of disease, perhaps caused by a recent slaughterfish bite he received.
30Din clearly needs to be rid of this disease, which seems to be causing violent outbursts and some dementia. He has mentioned the healer Mehra Drora in Gnisis. Perhaps she can help him.
40Din has agreed to try and follow me to Gnisis. It's good I came along. These violent outbursts he's having would most certainly have gotten him killed had he attempted to make the journey alone.
46I have decided to try and use my magical abilities to cure Din of his dementia.

48I've decided to take my leave of the madman Din. Whatever disease he has, I don't want to catch it.
49I have been able to use my magical abilities to rid Din of the disease that was causing his madness.
50I have been able to use my magical abilities to rid Din of the disease that was causing his madness.
60Din was very grateful for my help. As it turns out, he is a member of the Legion, and he has promised to let them know about my willingness to help him out. He also offered the little gold he had as payment.

70Din met his end on the road to Gnisis. Although he seemed mad, I fear it was a disease that caused this, and it probably could have been cured.

TriviaEdit

  • If killed before taking this quest, Din will respawn. He is the only named NPC in Morrowind who does this. This is a precaution against attacks by wild Kagouti.
  • The disease from which Din is suffering is Greenspore.
