Dead Oaths on Dead Lips
When you reach Level 20, visit any city in Skyrim; Riverwood is a fine example. When you reach the city, a courier approaches and delivers a message regarding the opening of a new museum up in Dawnstar. The owner is handing out invitations; you can visit at your earliest convenience. This doesn’t begin the quest yet, just a Miscellaneous Objective that piques your interest.
Miscellaneous Objective: Visit the museum in Dawnstar
Target: Silus Vesuius’s House, in Dawnstar
As you near Silus Vesuius’s House in Dawnstar, he is out on the porch having a heated discussion with Dawnstar’s Court Wizard, Madena. The argument centers around Silus refusing to bury his family’s legacy. Madena eventually gives up talking to him and leaves, allowing you to greet Silus and visit the Museum of the Mythic Dawn. You can ask him more about it, and he reveals it contains artifacts from a group that once toppled an Empire. Silus also has a job you’d be perfect for. This quest now officially begins.
Objective: Speak to Silus inside his house
Target: The Museum of the Mythic Dawn, in Dawnstar
The museum takes up about two-thirds of Silus’s house. You are free to peruse the cabinets before speaking to Silus; he offers commentary as you inspect each display case. You discover the tapestries were hung in hideouts where the mysterious Mythic Dawn would meet and plot.
The scabbard has Oblivion Gate iconography etched into it, a key symbol of Mehrunes Dagon, the patron Daedra. The case of books are commentaries on the Mysterium Xarxes, written by the cult’s leader, Mankar Camoran. The burned paper is all that remains of the fabled Mysterium Xarxes, the blasphemous book written by Mehrunes Dagon.
Finally, the robes were worn during the Mythic Dawn’s secret meetings, where they plotted to bring Dagon into Tamriel...
