A the priory Lathon has explained that his master, Sir Roderic had recovered the Greaves before he died but not the Sword of the Crusader. After giving the Greaves to the Hero he requests to be Knighted so that he may follow them into Underpall Cave and avenge Sir Roderic and recover the Sword.
In the Underpall Cave, follow the map marker and enter the Underpall Keep. The enemies inside are leveled undead. Beware of a big falling rock trap just behind a double door, at the bottom of a staircase on the way.
Just before the grand chamber they will find Sir Roderic's body. Prepare to attack Sir Berich's Wraith inside the chamber which is wielding the Sword. The wraith will glow bright white in the middle of the room. It doesn't seem to like fire too much, so a few Fire-elemental Destruction spells will do fine. Try to kill it before it summons many other ghosts, and don't forget to take the Sword of the Crusader that falls to the ground.
Remember, don't equip the Sword yet since it is cursed and needs to be taken to the chapel of Arkay in Cheydinhal before it can be wielded safely. Sir Berich's Curse will stunt their magicka, lower their fatigue, and give them 100 percent weakness to fire, frost, and shock.
Go to the chapel in Cheydinhal in order to finish this part of the quest. There will be several Aurorans waiting to attack, in the process of desecrating the chapel. Kill them, then consecrate the sword on the central altar. They can freely equip it from that point.
Now that the Hero have all the relics, they are ready for the fight with Umaril the Unfeathered and it's time to go back to the Priory.
I have arrived at Underpall Cave, the location of Lord Vlindrel's grave. Sir Roderic died somewhere inside, battling the foul wraith that now wields the Sword of the Crusader.
The wraith of Lord Vlindrel is destroyed. I need to reclaim the Sword of the Crusader that he somehow twisted to his evil purpose.
In attempting to use the defiled Sword of the Crusader, I have received a terrible curse. I can only hope that this curse will be lifted when I reconsecrate the Sword at the Chapel of Arkay in Cheydinhal.
Umaril's Aurorans have been destroyed. Cheydinhal Chapel is safe, for now. I can reconsecrate the Sword of the Crusader to Arkay on the high alter.
The Sword of the Crusader has been reconsecrated. I now possess all eight of the Crusader's Relics. I should return to the Priory to consult with my knights about how to attack and destroy Umaril.
- If they do Knight him, he will follow them to Underpall Cave and, dependent on the level, either help or get killed quickly. They can tell him to wait outside if you wish.
- If they choose not to Knight him, he will remain at the Priory, leaving them free to recover the Sword by themselves. They will be able to Knight him on your return, before proceeding with the storyline.
