1. Intro
First off, no this isn't a guide for the imperial legion,
they are two different guilds.  The IL keeps the peace,
the IC makes peace.  The Imperial Cult is basically the
"goody two shoes" of all of the guilds.  It donates money
to the poor, hunts people that hurt innocent people, and
heals those that are sickened. However, you can get a lot
of sweet enchanted items by doing these quests, some
which will have a constant effect of boosting your stats.
 This guild is really sort of a Mage Guild 2 that
specializes with healing and enchating.
---------------------------------------------------------
--------------
2. How to join the Imperial Cult:

Talk to an Oracle about joing the imperial cult (there
are 4 of them, but the easiest one to get to is the one
in Fort Moonmoth near Balmora).  They hang around at
imperial shrines.
---------------------------------------------------------

duties or anything, the Oracle just gave me a bunch of

or if they aren't vital for the quests and just give you
directions or something you can use this FAQ.

6. Quests

Almoner Quests from  Iulus Truptor:

Quest 1: Skyrim's mission 's alms for the poor.
Head to the Skyrim mission located just outside of the
Castle Ebonheart..  Once inside, ask around for alms for
the poor.  You may have to do some persuading, but you
should be able to get to 100 pretty quickly.  Heidmir
will give you 100 gold if you bribe him enough.  Head
back to the Imperial chapels for your reward.

Once you've advanced enough in the cult (I believe
initiate is the rank needed for this quest) you can get
do another quest.

Quest 2: Argonian mission's alms for the poor.
Head to the Argonian mission, and ask Im Kilaya for alms,
and bribe him a little and he will give you your gold.

Quest 3: Ald Ruhn's alms
Head to Ald Ruhn and bribe people to give up money if
necessary.  If you belong to a faction then go there and
ask for alms (they like you more than other people.  The
temple really doesn't help though because they "already
gave at the temple").  The fighter's guild is pretty
generous, most will give you 10 gold.  It seems as if
when people say that "they can't help you", they will
never have money to give no matter how much you bribe
them.  Those that say "maybe if I liked you more I would
tell you" or something to that extent can be bribed for
$.  Most of the dunmer in the area "aready gave at the
temple".  Most other races will give you some money
(Argonians are particularly stingy).  It shouldn't be
that hard to get 100 drakes, 200 drakes may be hard
considering that most of the people in Ald'Ruhn are
dunmers.  It is possible to take some money out of your
own pocket and tell Iulus that you got double.    (
You'll get a book for this quest that increases your
mercantile skill.

Quest 4: Shirt and vest
For this next quest you'll need to get a red shirt with a
black vest.  Dunmer don't usually carry them, but you can
probably get one from the clothier in caldera (take a
guild guide, its fast). Once in Caldera, head to
Falanaamo's Clothier shop (its directly east of the Mages
Guild.  Bribe him so his dispostion is around 85 (I had
to spend 300 dollars bribing him for a lowsy shirt!).
 You do get some other goods, like a free shirt and some
pants, but that's about it.  Head back to Iulus and give
him the shirt-vest combo.  (He gives you a book that
increases your Mercantile skill...wow)

Quest 5: Brandy!
Head to balmora and straight to the Southwall Cornerclub
(thieves guild place).  Talk to Bacola Clascius about
donating brandy.  He'll give you a bottle, and tell you
that the Comonna tong (Council Club) has some as well
 Head over to the Council club and go into a room door to
the right of the bar.  Look in the chests for some the
brandy (there should be 5).  Shut the door, take the
brandy and head back to Iulus.  Tell him that you got
enough brandy and you'll be rewarded.

Quest 6: Big money from Cunius Pelelius.
First off, head to Caldera.  You'll want to head to the
Governor's hall.  Once inside, Cunius Pelelius will be
right in front of you (he's the bald white guy).  Talk to
him about donating 500 drakes.  If you:
Demand the gold that he promised: He will fight you and
there is no way that you will ever get the gold
Press him for commitment: He will be glad to discuss it
at a later date.
Thank him for his attention: He will be glad to discuss
it at a later date.
You can also take the gold out of your own pockets if you
have lots of money

Quest 7: Generous pledge from Canctunian Panius.
Head to the East Empire Company hall in Ebonheart (very
convenient!).  Inside, go through a few wooden doors
until you find him.  Ask him about generous pledge, and
then offer to track down the clerk and recover gold.
 He'll tell you about  Mossanon, an altmer clerk that
took 3k.  Ask the orc outside of Panius's room about
Mossanon and bribe him until he tell you about him guild
guiding frequently in Vivec's Foreign quarter.  Talk to
the Argonian Okan-Shei, about Mossanon and he'll tell you
even more info about Mossanon and even about his love
life with a telvanni in the Foreign quarter of Vivec.
 Head over to the Mages guild in vivec  once inside, talk
to the guild guide about Mossanon.  If she likes you
enough, she'll tell you that he traveled with a Telvanni
woman a lot to Sadrith Mora.  Travel to Sadrith Mora's
Wolverine Hall.  If you warped via mages guild, ask
people about Mossanon, they'll say they saw an Altmer
with Volmyni Dral.  She lives near Wolverine Hall, about
two houses to the north.  Head up the stairs and talk to
 Mossanon.  He'll tell you about all of his love problems
and why he took the gold.  You'll have the option to take
the gold secretly, demand the gold, or take no action and
consider his offer.  Once you've gotten his gold head
back to Canctunian.  Once you've given him the gold back
and gotten 1k from him head back to Iulus.

Synnolian Tunifus Lay healer quests

Quest 1: Marshemerrow Picking and potion delivering
(Balur Salvu)
Head directly north until you reach Lake Hairan.  Look at
the big map that came with the game, and find the farm on
the map on the southwestern coast of the lake.  That is
the Salvu farm, and you can't miss it.  Once you get
there talk to Balur and he'll take the potion and ask
what he can do for you.  Ask him about "do for you" and
he'll tell you that you can take some marshmerrow and
he'll give you a book if you tell him Teach me something.


Quest 2: Muck and Gnisis potions
Head to Gnisis and head to Abishpuluu Shand's hut (I
think its easiest to go by boat from Eabonheart (boat),
to Vivec FQ to (stilt strider)Seyda Neen and to Gnisis.
 You might even have some gold from the gold from Tunifus
that he gave you for this mission. Once in Gnisis head
into Fort Darius in the southeastern section.  Head down
the stairs and to Chplain Ogrul at the imperial cult
altar.  He'll take the restore health potions and ask to
return your favor.  He'll ask you what restore attribute
spell you'd like to learn, pick one and then exit out
back into gnisis and next to the mucksponges.  Take 5
mucks from the sponges and head back to Ebonheart.

Quest 3: Gurak Gro-Bagrat, stealing from a criminal...
Wow, who would think to steal from a well known
criminal... Gheez.  Okay head to the Vivec Foreign
quarter and go north on to the mainland.  His house is
also located on the big map that comes with the game.
 The manor is basically  dead north of the Hawia egg
mine.  There should be some golden kanet flowers along
with a  bunch of willow flowers.  There may be a woman
outside the house so watch yourself.  Take 5 willow
anthers in total from the willow flowers and head back to
ebonheart (if you know whats good for you, don't enter
the house.)

Quest 4: Scrib jelly...
Head to balmora and exit through the south.  Keep on
going south along the west side of the Odai.  Keep going
south until you reach an campfire with miners standing
around it.  Near them is the Shulk Egg mine.  Kill some
scribs, get 5 jellies.  If you're having trouble finding
scribs, there is another mine south east of the Shulk
(shardan raplay, the Hlaalu Stronghold one).  Once you're
done that head back to Ebonheart.  (note: there was a
glitch in my game that Dinok, the redguard at the
campfire near the eggmine gave me a scrib jelly every
time I talked to him about scrib jelly and his dispostion
 was 53/100)

Quest 5: Corkbulbs
Arvel manor is the best place to get Corkbulbs.  To get
there head to Pelagiad and go east until you reach Dren
Plantation.  Head north until you get to Arvel manor.
Look around the paths near the manor for corkbulbs
(bushes that are usually squished between rocks).  You
should be able to find some easily.

Quest 6: Rats
Head to any of vivec's cantons with the exception of the
Temple or Palace (although the Puzzle canal has many
rats).  Head into the waistworks of any of these cantons
and then into the canalworks.  You will then have to find
a trapdoor on the ground near the stairs going down to
where all the water spews in through the fountains.  Go
down here, kill all the rats you can find and if it's not
5 you can either rest until some more hit you or go into
another canton's underworks.  When you're done with this
head back to the chapels.

Quest 7: Netch hunting
Okay, you need one unit of netch leather.  Wow that's
really not hard at all.  Tunifus tells you to go to Balur
Salvu's house but I think it's easier and faster to just
go outside Ebonheart and vivec and walk around and you'll
find a netch.  Kill it, get the leather and head back to
Tunifus.

Shrine Sergeant quests from Kaye

Quest 1:Caryarel's theft
First off you have to find out where he lives.  This is
pretty easy seeing that there are a bunch of High elves
in the hawkmoth garrison in ebonheart.  Once inside the
Hawkmoth Legion Garrison, find a High Elf (Landorume is
located on one of the upper floors is a high elf with
info).  Ask the elf about Caryarel and he'll tell you
that he lives in Gnaar Mok near Hla Oad near his ship the
Chun-ook.   Make your way to Gnaar mok (boat from
ebonheart-Hla Oad-Gnaar mok).  Carayel lives in a shack
right next to the docks.  His house might be locked, so
unlock it and enter.  The Chapel limeware bowl is located
inside of the barrel to the left of his desk.  Once you
have to bowl head back to Kaye.

Quest 2: Nedhelas' Haunted house
First get a daedric or enchanted weapon or get some
powerful scrolls.  Then find Nedhelas  in Caldera (guild
guide is quick).  Nedhelas can usually be found around
his house.  Find him and talk to him. He'll give you a
key in addition to telling you something about a trap
door.  In the north eastern part of his house there is a
trapdoor with barrels on top of it.  Use the key and go
through there.  Go through the door, kill the skeleton,
go through the next door kill the ancestral ghost and
then if you want to open the chest.  When you're done
looting go back and talk to nedhelas.  Your journal will
update and you can head back to Kaye for a reward and
another quest.  Head

Quest 3:Thelsa Dral's Egg mine
Head to Khuul (you can take a boat from Ebonheart-Hla
Oad-Gnaar Mok-Khuul).  Once at Khuul, head directly south
from the Silt Strider and you should hit the Asha-Ahhe
mine.  Head inside and up the ramp (the egg miners will
tell you that there's something down there and that
they're afraid.  Keep on going through the egg mine until
you see a campfire with three people surrounding it.
 There should be two dunmer females, one of the is Thelsa
Dral.  You can try to kill all three of them at once, but
you'll probably die if you don't have lots of cure
parylazation items on you.  Its probably easier to just
take out thelsa Dral and almsivi/divine intervention
yourself out. When I krept down into the depths very
slowly they came at me one at a time and made the fight
significantly easier.  Thelsa has a lot of good potions
so make sure to loot her.  When you're done head back to
Kaye.

Quest 4: Mt Kand's silver staff of shaming.
Find you way to Molag Mar (It can be reached from Vivec's
Stilt Strider).  Head straight north until your reach Mt.
Kand (its on the big map). If you have levitate this
should be pretty easy. Head west from the Cavern of Mt
Kand and then look south and you should see a semi-tall
hill/mountain, at the top of that you will find a corpse.
 This is the corpse that you are looking for, take all
the enchanted items and head back to Kaye.

Quest 5: Aid Okur!
Okur either can "see dead people" or is really crazy.
 Okay, head to Hla Oad (you can hop on a ship in
Ebonheart and get there really easily), and ask around
for Okur.  People in Hla Oad will tell you that she lives
"down that path over there".   She lives in the third
house to the northeast from the docks. Okur will tell you
that 4 smugglers killed a woman named Julielle and took
her amulet.  You must find, Dudley, Larisus Dergius,
Ralos Othrenim, and Thervam Drelas.  They are "strong and
well armed"(no kidding, you'll see that these guys are no
push-overs) and live in the cave of Yasamsi to the south.
 To get to the cave, you must exit to the south of Hla
Oad, and stay on the path.  The cave is next to a swamp
on the eastern side of the path.  Save and enter the
cave.  The first one you will fight is Dudley.  Kill him
and make your way on to Thervam Drelas ( a conjurer).
 Continue down the cave and fight Larisus Dergius (he has
a powerful claymore).  Continue in the cave past the
campfire and up the ramp.  Ralos Othhernim is up here,
kill him and loot him for at least Julielle's amulet and
if you want to you can loot some of the barrels and
chests (there are some good scrolls and soul gems here).
 Once you have the amulet head back to Okur and then get
your reward from Kaye.

Oracle Quests from Lalatia Varian
Getting the quests: Talk to Lalatia Varian about Oracle
Quests, you will have 3 choices.  To get these quests you
must choose to dedicate yourself to the Oracle's quests.

Quest 1: Ring of Darkness
Wow, at first this seems really confusing.  Talk to her
about Dunmer Savant and dunmer scouts.  To make this
journey easier you must find them both.  Llaalam Dredil
is the dunmer savant (Grand Council Chambers), and Nalasa
Sarothren at the Elven Nations Cornerclub is the Dunmer
Scout.  Its probably easiest to find the Dunmer savant
first.  Head to the Grand council chambers in Ebonheart
(shouldn't be too hard to find).  Llaalm Dredil is
standing right next to Duke Vedam Dren in the upper
floors of the GCC.   Ask him about ring of wind and he'll
tell you about a place where it might be.  Now head to
Vivec and to the elven nations corneclub in the Hlaalu
plaza.  Nalasa is located on the bottom floor, she'll
tell you the exact same thing as Dredil.  Head to tel
Aruhn (sadrith Mora is close), head west-southwest  to
the Deardric ruins (Yasinimarus) on the big map.  From
here head northwest to the mainland, and continue NW over
some hills until you reach a small pond/pool of water.
 Nammu is here.  Save and enter the cavern door.  Kill
the Redguard Female, and continue in, kill the dunmer
with the bows near the bridge. Don't cross the bridge
unless you really just want some lame items and a fight
with two very low level Bretons.  Instead, bare left
deeper into the cavern and kill the Dunmer.  Here is the
grand chamber that the scout and Savant told you about.
 Keep on the rock path and head up the stairs.  Here you
will find Galmis Dren wearing a funky mask.  Kill him,
loot him of the Ring of the Wind and any other items that
you wish.  Head to the right of Galiamis to find a
redguard.  He'll ask you for a  divine intervention
scroll.  If you have one give it to him (there should be
one in the crates near Galmis) and you'll receive some
Zenithar items.  If you rescued Jon Hawker (the redguard)
and mention it  to Varian she'll wonder if it was
actually Zenithar.

Quest 2: Boots of the Apostle
Again, head to Llalam Dredil (he didn't have the topic in
my game) or Nalasa Sarothren and they'll tell you that
Berandas is probably the site for the Boots of the
Apostle.  Head to Gnisis (Silt Strider is probably
easiest) and head south-southeast until you reach the
Dunmer stronghold of Berandas.  At Berandas, enter
through the top level of the keep (if you want to see
some cool lights head to the Propylon chamber).  Kill the
few enemies near in the area and head into the Lower
level of the stronghold (get ready for a fight).  Kill
the atronach. Dremora Lord, and golden saint (very well
guarded eh?).  Fighting them with paralyzing weapons may
actually hurt you because they usually reflect it, so go
in swinging with maybe a spell or enchanted weapon (I
summoned a golden saint that had a glass jinkblade which
helped A TON).  Once you've killed or avoided the enemies
head into the underground section of the Berendas
stronghold (there is usually an atronach guarding it).
Once inside, kill the Storm atronach.  Continue through
the underground passages killing Daedroths and Dremoras.
 Take your first left which will bring you down a path
next to a pit of lava.  Continue down until you find
yourself fighting two winged twighlights.  Kill them both
and continue on to find the body of a dead hero, loot his
body for atleast the boots and head back to Varian.
 She'll tell you that you can keep to boots.

Quest 3: Rotheran's Adusasi Assurnarairan the Oracle and
the Ice Blade of the Monarch.
First off, head to Dagon Fel (You can probably find a
boat in Sadrith Mora that will take you there). Once in
Dagon Fel head basically directly south and you'll get to
Rotheran.  Rotheran is also marked on the big map so it
shouldn't be that hard to get there.   Once at Rotheran
head into the Arena, here there will be a bunch of mages
that are...very...mean.  Kill them all, and make sure you
loot Llaren Terano fo.  He has the Ice blade of the
monarch as well as Adusasis ring (you must loot this to
saver her).    Loot other peoples body until you have the
Rotheran slave key and the slave cell key.  Open the
sturdy wooden doors and free the slaves and find Adusasi.
 Talk to her twice and she'll take the ring from you and
warp out.  Once you have freed her and gotten the blade
return to Varian.

Quest 4: Ujorad's murderers, Carecalmo and Meryaran.
Can you say Imperial Cult gone Morag Tong? This is very
similar to a Morag Tong quest, so if you've already done
it you don't have to do anything for the mission!.  You
should be able to find Ashimimimlkala southwest of Gnaar
Mok across a few bridges.  Get inside, kill all that you
can find and make sure you've killed Carecalmo and
Meryaran.  Head back to Varian for your reward.

Quest 5: Skull-Crusher
First off, remember the two key phrases to ask the Dunmer
Savant and scout (Halls of the Dead, and Sealed Daedric
Ruins).  Find Llalam Dredil or Nalasa Sarothren at their
respective places and ask them about Halls of the Dead
and Sealed Daedric Ruins.  When asked about Halls of the
Dead, they'll tell you it could be any Ancestral tomb and
that the tomb coud lead into an underground path to the
ruins.  The scout will tell you that the sealed ruins
could be the ones near Sadrith Mora.  Head there, and go
northeast of Wolverine Hall to the Ruins of  Anudnabia.
 Head to the island to the east of it and into the Omaren
Ancestral tomb.  Once inside, head take a right, another
right, fight the Daedroth and atronach and take a left
down a rock path (it will be heading west).  Keep down
the path until you get to a waterfall, head through the
waterfall, up some stairs until you get to the Forge of
Hilbonguard (you'll be in the Anudnabia ruins).  Once
inside of the forge, hop in the water and swim under a
large hole.   Kill the frost Atronach and open the
trapped door (it will deal some poison damage if you
don't have a probe).  Search around in here for some very
powerful items.  When you are in the very middle of the
forge, you will find a grandmasters armorer hammer.
 Above that there is a trapped chest (you jump on top of
the platform where the amorer hammer is and reach it..
 Open it and inside you will find the one and only Skull
crusher. Reurn to Varian for your final reward.
