Quest from: Sir Casimir;

Sir Casimir will tell you the story of the Crusader's gauntlets, which are now probably in the Chapel of Stendarr in Chorrol. Head there. The gauntlets are indeed laying on the floor in there, but they're too heavy for anyone to pick them up. Talk to Areldur (if he's not in the chapel, check the Chapel Hall below) and ask about Gauntlets of the Crusader. You'll know that Casimir's descendant lives here in this Chapel. His name is Kellen and he's cursed for his ancestor's sins. Talk to him (he's in the Chapel Hall), asking about the curse. He'll tell you that Areldur know something he's not saying. Go back to the elfish priest and speechcraft him a bit.

It will turn out that the only way to lift the curse from Kellen is to accept it yourself - Stendarr's Mercy - Knights of the Nine - The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion - Game Guide and Walkthrough

It will turn out that the only way to lift the curse from Kellen is to accept it yourself. Approach the altar and activate it, agreeing to do so. Next, set your active spell to Lay Hands and use it on Kellen. Now you can pick up the gauntlets.

Umbra267 14/08/2010 13:32

This is really annoying the life out of me. I've collected all the other Crusader artifacts in Knights of The Nine but when I get to the gauntlets I just can't complete it. I pray at the altar and the game tells me the Lay Hands spell has been added, but when I go to my inventory it's not there so I can't lift the curse from Kellen and pick up the gauntlets. Help - please. Also, does anyone know if there is a problem in the final part of the Thieves Guild quests? I gave the sword back to the Count instead of Fathes Ules. OK he won't talk to me anymore and I can live with that, but I never get the call from the Gray Fox for the Ultimate Heist and can't become Guildmaster of the Thieves Guild. Anyone out there got any answers or ideas?

I laid hands on Kellen and the message was that I got the curse and I feel tired, yet none of my stats went down and it really hasn't affected me. I completed the quest and never noticed being cursed. Oh well.

The curse: at some point it simply vanishes - I think after you complete the questline and defeat Umaril

game_pwner. Happened to me too. I murdered him before I got the expansion packs. It made me very sad face to have to make a new character.

Ive already gotten the helmet, shield, mace, cuirass, and boots of the crusader relics, but when i try to do stendarr's mercy, the dark elf u have to talk to in the chapel Areldur isnt anywhere, not in chorrol or in the chapel, some1 help me!!!!!!!

kevin24 22/06/2008 23:51

spoiler startwhere are they on the groundspoiler stop

Mr. Chew 21/06/2008 20:39

i think you either collect all the relics. but i think you can activate the altar in the chapel where kellen is. i havent done knights of the nine in awhile so thats my best advice.

Bad boy dx 22/04/2008 21:51

is there a way to get rid of the curse? I really want to get rid of it... Im tired of tiring easily =(...

oblivionewbie 06/08/2007 09:00

the curse isn't the end of the world...

ImAMonkey 21/06/2007 18:37

you just simply need to go into your spells in your item menu set the curse to a hotkey and use it on Kellen. just like it says to do so above
