Upon completing "The Bitter Cup," when the Nerevarine speaks to Gentleman Jim Stacey, he will task the Nerevarine to get Hrundi, the head of the Sadrith Mora fighters guild, to turn against Sjoring Hard-Heart. He will remind the player of the rumors that Hrundi has a secret Dunmer lover, which can be used against him.
Head to Sadrith Mora. Hrundi will be in the Fighters Guild, in Wolverine Hall. If you can raise his disposition above 80, he will agree to join your cause, but he will ask you to move against Hard-Heart quickly, as Hard-Heart knows the identity of his lover.
Alternatively, if you cannot raise his disposition above that level or you decide not to do so, head into town in order to find out who his lover is. Ask people around town about the topic "Hrundi's woman" and they will point you to Fara's Hole in the Wall. Inside the tavern, Falena Hlaren will tell you she is Hrundi's lover if her disposition is raised above 50. The other people in the tavern will also disclose this information about her if their disposition is raised over 50 points.
With this information in hand, return to Hrundi and he will agree to help you take on the Camonna Tong.
Return to Gentleman Jim Stacey to complete the quest.
