Inanius Egg Mine is a House Hlaalu quest given by Nileno Dorvayn that opens an egg mine of the same name to the Nerevarine during the events of The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind.

Objectives[edit | edit source]

Walkthrough[edit | edit source]

The Nerevarine, having helped House Hlaalu by taking Aurane Frernis' Recipies, is now tasked by Nileno Dorvayn to undermine a rival Kwama Egg Mine owner, Serjo Avon Oran. Dorvayn informs the Nerevarine that the Mine will fail if the Kwama Queen is killed (along with the other Kwama inside the mine). She also suggests that the Nerevarine travel to Suran and then head to the mine from there.

A talk with Oran (Optional)[edit | edit source]

At this point two paths are open to the Nerevarine. They may proceed to the Mine (southeast of Suran) or speak to the Mine's owner, Serjo Avon Oran. Oran can be exploited for up to 1,000 Gold in order to protect his interests, at which point the Nerevarine will be given another choice of quest progression. They can either take Oran's deal and return to Balmora (gaining a 5-point reputation boost in House Hlaalu and a -10 disposition swing from Dorvayn), refuse Oran's offer (at the cost of a disposition drop from Oran) or take Oran's money and then proceed to kill the Queen. Either choice is fine.

Killing the Queen[edit | edit source]

If the Nerevarine decided to refuse Oran's deal or go back Oran's deal (or indeed not speak to him at all), then they must kill the Kwama Queen at the Inanius Egg Mine to complete the quest. The Mine itself can be found to the southeast of Suran and has been partially flooded, meaning that the Nerevarine will have to swim to get to the Queen. Once the Queen has been killed, the Nerevarine must return to Dorvayn to receive their reward and complete the quest.
