|The Sad Seer|
|I met a sad warlock and seer named Geilir the Mumbling. His family was recently lost at sea, and now his only companion has been kidnapped by a draugr.
|Geilir asked me to rescue Oddfrid White-Lip from Kolbjorn Barrow, but I refused.|
|I have agreed to help Geilir the Mumbling by rescuing Oddfrid White-Lip from Kolbjorn Barrow. As a reward, he will talk to Oddfrid and reveal my future. Kolbjorn Barrow is southeast of Geilir's dwelling, near the Solstheim coast.|
|I have agreed to help Geilir the Mumbling by rescuing Oddfrid White-Lip from Kolbjorn Barrow. As a reward, he will talk to Oddfrid and reveal my future. He will also reverse Thormoor Gray-Wave's curse of eternal wakefulness. Kolbjorn Barrow is southeast of Geilir's dwelling, near the Solstheim coast.|
|I found Oddfrid White-Lip, but Geilir failed to mention that she was just a skull. No matter. If I return the skull to Geilir, he should grant my reward.|
|I returned Oddfrid White-Lip to Geilir the Mumbling. Geilir admitted that Oddfrid was just a skull, but insists "she" talks to him.|
|Geilir the Mumbling told me my future. He said something about the beginning of a hunt, and me as both the hunter and hunted. I was by ice. He also said something about a giant and a horned huntsman.
|Geilir the Mumbling couldn't tell my future, but Oddfrid did tell him about something else. He said that when the dragon dies, the Empire dies. He also said something about the lost dragon's blood and the Empire's sire, and the stemming of a blood tide. Geilir said it was all very cloudy, and does not refer to me directly.
|Geilir the Mumbling told me my future. He said....|
There is no material reward for this quest, but Geilir is not lying about a prophecy gift. As a tribute for returning Oddfird he foretells Nerevarine's future with the help of Oddfrid:
- If the Main Quest has not been completed, his prophecy will be about ongoing main quest line: ...she says the time for the hunt is near. You are both hunter and hunted. She sees you surrounded by ice. Beware betrayal!
- If the Bloodmoon Main Quest is already completed, his prophecy will be on plot of The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion: When the dragon dies, the Empire dies. Where is the lost dragon's blood, the Empire's sire?
