Miscellaneous Quests are minor quests that can be activated with few (if any) prerequisite quests. They do not have a name attached to them and often are trivial in nature such as retrieving an item or delivering a letter. In most cases, they are obtained by talking with characters and taking the dialogue options for helping them with their problems.
They are chiefly distinguished by the fact that they appear in the quest log under the "Miscellaneous" heading. There is also no further description for them besides the one line that appears on the log. However, when complete, they appear as separate quests under the "completed" heading.
Note that in many cases, Miscellaneous Quests are Radiant Quests, where the specific item or location are randomly assigned. A major example of these are the jobs given by Delvin Mallory and Vex of the Thieves Guild as part of gaining city influence.
