Detailed walkthroughEdit

Canctunian Ponius at the East Empire Company has made a generous pledge of 1000 gold to the Imperial Cult. Iulus needs someone to speak with him to collect the pledge. The East Empire Company Hall is located near the docks of Ebonheart.

Travel to the company hall and speak with Canctunian. Canctunian explains that he has been unable to provide the pledged gold due to his clerk, Mossanon, has embezzled 3000 septims. Due to the loss of funds, he has been covering the companies cost out of his own money. Offering to track down Mossanon to recover the gold and Canctunian will make good his pledge. Canctunian wishes the situation to remain quiet and ask for discretion when asking after Mossanon.

Two company employees in the next room will provide the first leads. Shazgob gra-Luzgan advises that before Mossanon's disappearance he had been seen using the guildguide service at the Mage's Guild. Okan-Shei mentions that Mossanon had a Telvanni girlfriend, but that he kept her a secret.

With this information, the next place to find information is the Mage's Guild in Vivec, Foreign Quarter. Once there, speaking with the Guildguide Flacassia Fauseius will reveal that Mossanon had been traveling to Sadrith Mora. Use her services to head there.

Upon arrival in Sadrith Mora Mage's Guild, speak with Iniel. Iniel remembers Mossanon, and that he has been in the company of a local woman, Volmyni Dral, who has a pod in Sadrith Mora. Speaking with other mages, notably Tusamircil, will mention that Sinyaramen over at Gateway may have more information.

Locate Volmyni Dral's House, which is on the main path from Wolverine Hall to Gateway Inn. Enter her house and asking her about Mossanon will reveal that he is upstairs.

Confront Mossanon about the embezzled funds. Mossanon tells his tale of how he fell in love with Volmyni and he stole the funds to impress her. But now he realizes that she loves him and not the money. He regrets his actions and offers to return the money, but he only has 2500 of it left. He begs for secrecy and is willing to pay the rest back when he can.

Return to Canctunian Ponius and speak with him about 'embezzled funds.' If any gold is returned he will be able to meet his pledge. Speak with about 'generous pledge' and he will donate the 1000 gold. Return to Iulus and provide him with the pledge money.

1Iulus Truptor asked me to persuade Canctunian Ponius of the East Empire Company to deliver the 1000 gold he has pledged to sponsor a mission to the Ashlanders. I'll find him at the East Empire Company Hall in Ebonheart. When I have the generous pledge from Canctunian Ponius, I'm to deliver it to Iulus Truptor.

10Canctunian Ponius cannot redeem his 1000-drake pledge because an East Empire Company clerk has embezzled funds, and he is covering the losses out of his own fortune.
15Since Canctunian Ponius cannot redeem his 1000-drake pledge because an East Empire Company clerk has embezzled funds, I offered to track down the clerk and recover the gold. If I can track this Mossanon down and recover the missing 3000 gold, Canctunian Ponius will immediately redeem his 1000-drake pledge to the Imperial cult.
18Canctunian Ponius said Mossanon embezzled funds in the amount of 3000 gold in gold.
20Canctunian Ponius said he had noticed a change in Mossanon's behavior -- a marked rise in his absences from the office.
25I told Canctunian Ponius that I had failed to find Mossanon and the missing gold. Now Canctunian Ponius says he cannot redeem his 1000-drake pledge to the Imperial cult.
30I gave Canctunian Ponius 2500 gold and told him it was all I could recover from Mossanon. He accepted the gold, and said it would enable him to redeem his 1000-drake pledge to the Imperial cult.

40I gave Canctunian Ponius 1000 gold and told him it was all I could recover from Mossanon. He accepted the gold, and said it would enable him to redeem his 1000-drake pledge to the Imperial cult.
45Canctunian Ponius thanked me for recovering his embezzled funds and gave me the 1000 gold he had pledged to support an Imperial cult mission to the Ashlanders.
48I told Iulus Truptor I couldn't get Canctunian Ponius to donate the 1000 gold he pledged to sponsor a mission to the Ashlanders. Iulus Truptor was disappointed, and told me my talents and temperaments were apparently not suited for soliciting donations. He thanked me for my efforts, but said he would no longer require my services as an almoner for the Imperial cult.
  • Quest failed
50I gave Iulus Truptor the 1000 gold Canctunian Ponius pledged to sponsor a mission to the Ashlanders. He was quite pleased, but he said he had no more tasks for me. He suggested I consider becoming a lay healer or lay sergeant. He also suggested that the Oracle, Lalatia Varian, might have tasks for me. Then he gave me a farewell gift, and wished me good luck.
