Known locationsEdit

  • North of Embershard Mine (across the river), and east of Anise's Cabin near the stairs that lead to an iron ore vein. The note is in the inventory of a dead treasure hunter just north of the waterfall closest to Riverwood.
  • South of Purewater Run. The note is carried by a dead Treasure Hunter.
  • Between Stillborn Cave and Journeyman's Nook. Imagine a straight line on the map between the 2 places. A dead treasure hunter can be found along that line. The note is in the dead treasure hunter's inventory.
  • Southeast of Ragnvald Temple, in a Treasure Hunter's inventory. 


I'm close to finding the <Alias=Item>. I've tracked it down to <Alias=Dungeon>. It's apparently guarded by a <Alias.ShortName=Boss>.


Reading this note starts a Miscellaneous Quest to go to the specified location and get the item.
