An Escort to Molag Mar is a quest in The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind.


  1. Speak to Paur Maston near Suran and agree to help him.
  2. Escort Paur to Molag Mar.
  3. Speak to Vanjirra to complete the quest.


Meeting PaurEdit

Paur Maston is not far south from Dirara Drom's farmhouse, located south west and across the river from Suran. Paur says that he was detained and missed meeting his business partner, Vanjirra, for an excursion to Molag Mar. Now he must face it alone ... or must he?

Traveling to Molag MarEdit

Paur reveals that he is scared of the beasts and critters along the roads, and asks the Nerevarine to escort him to Molag Mar. There is only one opportunity to accept the task, he will not ask again if his initial request is refused.

Paur is armed with an Iron Club and has some spells at his disposal, but he is fragile and can die fairly easily if left to fend for himself. The journey to Molag Mar is not without hazards if undertaken on foot. Otherwise, escort Paur to Suran (or Vivec City) and simply take the Silt Strider to Molag Mar.

Paur and Vanjirra reunited

In the event that Paur dies while en route to Molag Mar the quest can still be completed, and the Nerevarine will still be offered compensation for his/her efforts. This allows the Nerevarine an opportunity to murder Paur for his two-hundred gold without witnesses in the wilderness (or simply watch as beasts perform the task), then speak to Vanjirra for an additional fifty gold.


Vanjirra is on, or near, the bridge leading into Molag Mar. Once the pair are reunited the quest is complete. Paur is unwilling to part with any of his gold, so speak with Vanjirra for a reward.


Vanjirra rewards the Nerevarine regardless of if Paur survived the journey or not:

  • Light Amulet (if Paur lives)
  • 50 Gold (if Paur did not survive)

10 I met a trader named Paur Maston while traveling north of Bal Fell. It seems he was supposed to meet up with his partner, a Khajiit named Vanjirra, but Paur arrived late, and she had already gone on to Molag Mar.
15 I met a trader named Vanjirra in Molag Mar. She is partners with Paur Maston.
20 It seems Paur Maston fears for his life on the trip to Molag Mar. No wonder. I've heard it can be quite a dangerous journey. He would like me to escort him to Molag Mar and protect him from any dangers we might face. While he has little to offer me, he promises that his partner will compensate me once we arrive in Molag Mar.
30 I've agreed to escort Paur Maston on his trip to Molag Mar. It could be quite a dangerous trip, but he promises I'll be well rewarded once we arrive and he can find his partner, Vanjirra.

110 I arrived in Molag Mar with Paur Maston. Of course, I knew that Vanjirra was already dead, but didn't figure that Paur needed to know that as well. The fool still paid me what he could for escorting him here.

130 I arrived in Molag Mar and spoke to Vanjirra. She was saddened to hear of Paur's demise on our journey here, but was grateful that I was kind enough to tell her what had happened. An honest person, she rewarded me in a small way for my efforts.
