Race Against the Clock is a quest in The Elder Scrolls III: Bloodmoon. The Nerevarine must deliver a report to Carnius at Fort Frostmoth within the next five hours.

Objectives[edit | edit source]

  • Speak with Falco
  • Head to Fort Frostmoth and speak with Constans Atrius
  • Find Carnius and deliver the report
  • Return to Falco

Walkthrough[edit | edit source]

Upon completing Discovery in the Mine, if the Nerevarine sided with Falco, he will tell them to deliver a report to Carnius within the next 5 hours.

Head to Fort Frostmoth. a Divine Intervention spell can be used to get there faster. Once there, the Nerevarine discovers that Carnius is not there. speaking with Constans Atrius will reveal that Carnius has left for another location, and reveal where Carnius currently is. At this point, a curse will be placed on the Nerevarine which will burden them and drastically lower their speed and agility

There are three locations where Carnius can have gone, chosen at random when the quest is started:

Note that two of these locations are far closer to Raven Rock than they are to Fort Frostmoth, so it might be wisdom to place a Mark spell there before the quest so that you can return there quickly.

Once you've found Carnius, hand him the report and then return to Falco to get your reward. If the Nerevarine fails to reach Carnius in time, they will be permanently expelled from the East Empire Company.
