Helping Hands is a quest in The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion. It is possible to hire a maid for the Hero's home in Skingrad.



  • Purchase of Rosethorn Hall in Skingrad.
  • Servants' Quarters Furnishings.


This quest allows you to hire a maid named Eyja. Eyja works for Gunder, the owner of Colovian Traders shop in Skingrad. Talk to her and she will say "For 150 gold and a roof over my head I'm all yours." Accept this, as long as you have 150 GoldIcon, and she will move in immediately.


Ask "Eyja" and she will tell about her life. If Kitchen Furnishings are installed, Eyja can do two things. Ask for "Food" and she will bring a Shepherd's Pie, which has the effects of Dispel, Fortify Agility, Cure Disease, and Shield. Ask for "Drink" and she will bring a bottle of Rosethorn Mead, which has the effects of Fortify Endurance, Fortify Strength, Drain Intelligence, and Drain Willpower.
