The Museum of Oddities

Where: Crucible, Museum of Oddities (C5);

The museum needs new exhibits. Every time you find something odd enough to be on display here, you'll get an appropriate journal entry. The proprietor pays you 200-300 Gold for each item. Most of the oddities are unfortunately found in completely random places: as loot, contents of chests, or when collecting alchemical ingredients. There are 12 items to be found in this quest, but only locations of 2 of them can be described.

Pelvis of Pelagius can be found when doing the Symbols of Office quest. Check out the main quest guide for details.

Din's Ashes are on a hidden level of Ebrocca (SI29). To get there, you have to find a hidden button under one of the leather shields not very far from the main entrance (screenshot below). Ashes are in one of the urns there.

Finding any other, random oddities will require some luck - Side Quests: New Sheoth - Quests - The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion - Game Guide and Walkthrough

Finding any other, random oddities will require some luck. Here's the list:

Ring of Disrobing

Dagger of Friendship

Blind Watcher's Eye

Houndtooth Key

Deformed Swamp Tentacle

Sheogorath-shaped Amber

Soul Tomato

Mute Screaming Maw

Mixing Bowl

Double-Headed Coin

The Antipodean Hammer

Where: Bliss/Crucible, Cutter/Dumag gro-Bong;

Now, this is listed as a quest in your journal, but there's really nothing to be completed here. You just find out that blacksmiths' in Bliss (Dumag) and Crucible (Cutter) can forge Amber (found in Mania) and Madness Ore (found in Dementia) into new types o weapons and armor. Additionally, Amber is a random loot left by Gnarls, and Madness Ore is often found by dead Grummites.

Besides, from time to time you'll come by an item called the Matrix - these are elements that can add magical abilities to forged weapons.

Amber is forged into Light Armor, Madness Ore into Heavy Armor.

The proprietor of Crucible's inn is very sick and needs your help - Side Quests: New Sheoth - Quests - The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion - Game Guide and Walkthrough

The proprietor of Crucible's inn is very sick and needs your help. You have to go to Knotty Bramble and collect a cure for her - it's called Aquanostrum. Head to the cave that's been marked on your map. The medicine is found on the second level. The dungeon is crawling with Grummites - it's a good opportunity to collect some Madness Ore. When you grab the Aquanostrum (you just have to approach the statue in the middle of the pond), go back to Bernice. She'll give you a Circlet of Verdure - it gives you 50% poison and disease resistance, as well as an increase in health and endurance.

Ushnar's Terror

Where: Crucible, Ushnar gro-Shadborgob;

During the day, Ushnar can be found in the central part of Crucible. He'll ask you to get rid of a beggar called Bhisha. You can pay the poor fella to leave (100 Gold), kill him, or raise his disposition high enough so that you can convince him to go away. Your reward for this quest will be a disgusting little doggy, who'll aid you in combat.

Brithaur

Where: Crucible, Earil (C7);

Earil wants to get rid of a thief named Brithaur. The little crook doesn't want to leave or change his evil way until you bring him 5 Flawless Pearls. You can try to find them and bring them to him, but it isn't really worth the trouble. Just kill the bosmer and take his heart to show Earil that you've solved the problem.

The Coming Storm

Where: Crucible, Things Found (C13);

Ahjazda, the proprietor of Things Found in Crucible wants you to bring her some items. She needs the Amulet of Disintegration, the Ring of Desiccation, and Calming Pants (must have the calming pants!)

Ring of Desiccation is on display in Museum of Oddities - just steal it then the lady's not looking - Side Quests: New Sheoth - Quests - The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion - Game Guide and Walkthrough

Ring of Desiccation is on display in Museum of Oddities - just steal it then the lady's not looking.

Calming Pants are owned by Fimmion, an elf wandering around Bliss. He'll gladly part with them if you give him a Sweetroll. If you don't have the patience to look for it, just kill him and take the loot.

HINT: You can find a Sweetroll in Pyke's house in Hale (SI16).

Amulet of Disintegration is in the ruins of Milchar. A map marker will show you a shortcut - use it and you won't have to go through the whole complex. You'll find yourself in a shrine with a frozen container in the middle. To get it open, you have to light the three bonfires, using the enchanted torch (you can't equip it, so just hold it by pressing 'Z' on your keyboard). You have to be quick about it - the fires go out faster than you'd expect and they have to be lit simultaneously. Grab the amulet and go back to Ahjazda. She'll teach you a spell called Ahjazda's Paranoia.

Final Resting

Where: Crucible, Hirrus Clutumnus;

When you find Hirrus on the streets of Crucible, he'll ask you to meet him after dark. Wait until nightfall and go to the map marker. He tells you that he wants you to kill him in a sneaky way. Agree and wait until the next day. Find him standing near the edge of high stairs - talk to him and push him down. Take a key from his body and go to his house. You can find a Ring of Happiness in there. How ironic.

Falling Awake

Where: Bliss, Amiable Fanriene

Despite being quite wealthy, Amiable lives on the streets of Bliss. That's because he's afraid of walls. You are to find him a safe spot to sleep.

Your reward for this little quest is a Burst of Power scroll.

He'll tell you to go to Longtooth Camp (SI9). Defeat some zealots there. The fork is in the jewelry case marked on the map. Take it back to Big Head, and he'll reward you with a skill point (to either Blade, Sneak, or Alchemy).

@darkbringer the high elf, there are three other platforms you have to lit in the room, the first two are on your left and right when you walk into the room and the third one is on top of the stairs behind the container, the fire will approx. dim within 15 secs after you've lit it, so you can't take too long

darkbringer the high elf 27/12/2011 05:21

ok so i was playing the The coming storm mission and when i got to the chamber that has the amulet of disintegration the three flames were already lit and it wont let me relight them to open the container does anybody know any way i can get into the container? (i play on the ps3)

repins85 19/04/2011 02:50

The Raven 18/01/2010 09:37

did ne one ever think to try replicating ore and amber?

Vampire Elf 21/10/2009 22:13

just saying this here i think the best armor in the game is the magic amber and madness ore armors to get the magic ones u need a matrix say i want magic greaves for madness ore ill need the madness ore plus 1 madness greaves matrix. the matrix is gone when u make it though so i sudjest forget the unenchanted one and wait till u have the matrix for u magic amber or madness ore wepions (<- think i spent that wrong) or armor since the ore and amber is hard to get as it is hope this helps you people

Mr. Progamer 25/01/2009 18:15

Try checking these maps, my guide's out for now.

Mighty Joe Laith 25/01/2009 07:22

Another thing, "Final Resting" is a hilariously fun quest. I killed him in different ways about 10 times. It was great. Once I used the bow that Syl gives you for being her Grande Inquisitor and the random spell effect was just paralyze. He flew about 30 feet up in the air, stiff as a board. The plummeted to his death. It was great. Plus, when getting rid of Brithaur, I waited until he was right at the spot where you push Hirrus off. Now theres two bodies xD the Dark Seducer was right. It really DOES happen all the time.

Mighty Joe Laith 25/01/2009 07:14

So I was walking through Bliss... when suddenly a Dark Seducer, the argonian from Thadon's court, and the retired redguard assassin go running through the streets on a killing spree! they killed Big-Head, Ahjazda, and the guy with the calming pants! Fortunately I had already done the quest "The Coming Storm" but now Big-Head obviously can't show me where to find the magical fork thing. I'd like to have it just for fun, anyone know where Zealot's Camp is near? Because I didn't get a chance to have him mark it on my map. The whole thing was pretty hilarious though, no idea how it happened.

trickyspaniard 08/01/2009 03:26

Couple of things with the quests. If you're a Khajiit it can be impossible to complete the Ushnar quest. Actually the first time I talked to him he told his dogs to kill me and they did attack, the city guards killed Ushnar and his dogs. Weird. For Brithaur quest: if you just wait until you're Duke/Duchess of Dementia or possibly after you do Syl's quest, you can just talk to the guy in Dementia court (don't remember his name) and he'll resolve it, getting rid of Brithaur for you. If you try to kill Sheogorath before he leaves, it's interesting. The game goes into a cutscene, he stands and casts a spell on you. You disappear and when you reappear you're hundreds/thousands of feet in the air above Suicide Hill, and then you just fall to your death. Great view of the entire place while you're falling, though. Next page for Kishashi you can also just raise her disposition high enough and she'll give you the spoon. My reward book was something that raised my Destruction, too. For Vitharn there's also a ghostly Welkynd stone in the mausoleum that you can grab and give to the mage instead of the dagger.
