"Not till the very evening they came," answered he, and then told of his dealings with Mehrunes Dagon's thralls, saying that Mackkan would find it easier to whistle on the wind's tracks and go on a fool's errand than to fight his toads. Then said Mackkan:

"Now see to thy safety henceforward,

And stick to thy parts and thy pride;

Or this mallet of mine, Malacath's Scourge,

Will meet with thine ear of a surety.

For quick as I can cry "Equality",

Though eight arms thou couldst boast of,

Such bumps thou shalt comb on thy brainpan,

Thou that breakest the howes of the dead."

EXPLICATION: The mace Scourge, Blessed of Malacath, Mackkan's legendary weapon, forged from sacred ebony in the Fountains of Fickledire, has ever been the bane of the Dark Kin, and many a black spirit has been hurled back into Oblivion with a single blow of this bold defender of the friendless. Scourge now hangs within the armory of Battlespire, ready to take up in the name of the Emperor against the Daedric Lords.

  • Used in a miscellaneous quest given by Urag gro-Shub of the College of Winterhold, if one claims the book before accepting the quest, the quest will be bugged, the questmark endlessly pointing at the chest, with the book forever stuck in the player's inventory as a quest item. On the other hand, if you use the console and "player.drop 0001AD0A 1" (no quotes, no os, just zeros, and don't forget the quantity number 1), the undroppable quest item will drop. When you pick it up, you will get a message that you have satisfied the quest and should return to Urag to turn it in.
  • Killing Vokun before getting the quest from the College will result in the access gate to the chest that contains the book will not open.
  • The gate can be lowered again by jumping on the stone pillar's pressure plate.
