No Stone Unturned is a quest in The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion. This quest can be started by either talking to Lithnilian at the Imperial Bridge Inn, or by finding his notes in Bramblepoint Cave. He was researching a natural outcrop of Welkynd Stones when he was attacked and fled, dropping his notes in his flight.


If this quest was started by finding his notes, then simply go to the Imperial Bridge Inn and speak with Lithnilian. He will immediately give the reward, and with that, the quest is finished.

The notes are in the chest

If it is started by speaking with Lithnilian, he explains his predicament and gives the location of Bramblepoint Cave. It lies a very short distance to the West, on the other side of the Yellow Road. The cave itself consists of three levels and a variety of natural creatures.

On the third level there is a boss creature guarding a chest with fairly good loot inside. However the chest with the research notes is in the corner of the room with the boss chest. Once collecting them, return to Lithnilian to claim the reward.
