I've completed Meridia's mission, and received dawn breaker (EDIT: oh, I would have never done this if I realized she was a Daedra!) :(

I also completed the Sybil of Dibella mission and became an Agent of Dibella.

I would like to know if there are any more Aedric quests in the game, I cannot play the Daedric quests with my current character who is rather straight-up and conscientious...

To the person who edited my post (yx?): I did mean AEDRIC quests, not DAEDRIC quests. I re-edited my post. –  aditya menon Jan 27 '12 at 3:05
    
Daedroth is a specific type of Daedra. Meridia is not one, though she is a Daedra. It's a titch confusing. –  Raven Dreamer Jan 27 '12 at 3:08

I've adjusted the title to be more comprehensive - Aedra is technically correct, but you're likely to engender confusion if you insist on using that term. –  Raven Dreamer Jan 27 '12 at 3:14

@adityamenon Although Meridia is a Daedra, she's unambiguously allied with the living against the undead. That would make her "good" unless you have a soft spot for the rights of zombies. –  brymck Jan 27 '12 at 3:30

AEDRA

Unlike the Daedra, these don't have an organized each-prince-has-a-quest-and-good-reward format. But they do exist, although we'll have to define them more loosely:

Dibella
Kynareth - Weak albeit unique reward. Unless you like saving trees. A lot.
Mara

AFAICT the following have no proper quests:

Akatosh
Arkay (aside from a minor fetch quest in Whiterun that nets you a pittance in gold)
Julianos
Stendarr (But since the Vigilants of Stendarr are out and hunting werewolves, it's entirely possible in DLC. They have a lodge in Dawnstar.)
Talos (well, aside from fighting the Thalmor at every turn)
Zenithar


DAEDRA

There are some Daedric quests that might be fine for your paragon of morality to still do. I'll try to avoid spoilers, but here are the Daedric Quests by prince and evilness:

Probably fine:
Azura - Just some necromancer hunting
Clavicus Vile - Just don't do everything Clavicus says
Malacath - You ultimately help the Orcs
Meridia - Pretty much the definition of Lawful Good
Nocturnal - Part of the Thieves Guild questline
Sheogorath - You "help" Pelagius have some self-confidence

Ambiguous:
Mehrunes Dagon - If you wait too long instead of following Dagon's command to kill someone, that person will attack you, which still satisfies Dagon. But it is Dagon.
Mephala - The quest is fine, but the reward is only marginally useful if you're averse to killing friends
Vaermina - Good only if you let the staff be destroyed, which means no reward

Questionable:
Hircine - Werewolf hunting
Sanguine - Drinking games, although you do fix all the mayhem you cause

Evil:
Boethiah - Murder
Hermaeus Mora - But seriously, he's trying to get to the Heart of Lorkhan? Also, if you don't like elves this switches to the Good category.
Molag Bal - Torture
Namira - Cannibalism
Peryite - You inhale hallucinogens then wipe out a den of his followers

I think the Sanguine Rose (the reward for the Sanguine quest) is one of the best (if not the best) secondary weapon in the game if you're an archer.. You spawn a leveled dremora, let them tank for you, and you can just hang out and kill everything from a distance. –  George Stocker Jan 26 '12 at 13:21
    
Excellent answer! But I did not know Meridia was a Daedra? Ow! Did I just help a Daedra? Now my "Prowd Nord" will have to commit suicide :P –  aditya menon Jan 27 '12 at 3:07
    
By the way Bryan, if you could please edit your post to include AEDRIC quests, I will accept it... –  aditya menon Jan 27 '12 at 3:10

@adityamenon Yeah, I edited that fact in. Nettlebane is in fact unique -- and it absorbs magicka and is Ebony, so it's decent -- but it's nothing like the other two. You also get a nicer looking tree in the middle of Whiterun, for what that's worth. –  brymck Jan 27 '12 at 5:11

There is 1 daedric quest for every daedric prince with the sole exception of Jyggalag. So in total there are 16 daedric quests. Every quest will involve the daedric artifact of that prince in some way.

Jyggalag is a bit of a special snowflake anyway - until recently, he only appeared once every great time, so his only cultists were within the Shivering Isles themselves. –  Raven Dreamer Jan 25 '12 at 20:10

Azura's quest has a nice reward and is not really 'evil' for what its worth. –  James Jan 25 '12 at 21:14

Definitely James, but you see my character is a typical Nord who just blindly follows stereotypes. He does not have the ability to make judgement of his own, just believes that all filthy Daedra are evil, and to Oblivion with the lot of them! :) –  aditya menon Jan 27 '12 at 3:10

There are only two quests for the Divines (Technically "Aedra", but they are always referred to as "Divines" in dialog):

The Heart of Dibella

and

The Book of Love (Mara)

The other six (+1) Divines do not have associated quests in the base game.

I'm going to accept Bryan's answer now, because you forgot about saving the Gildergreen :P (I did complete it, and dash it - even I forgot to mention that...) –  aditya menon Jan 27 '12 at 4:33
1  
@adityamenon - I chose not to include it because it's a quest for Kynareth's priest, not for Kynareth. –  Raven Dreamer Jan 27 '12 at 5:24
    
Ah, okay. Well R, Bryan put a great deal of work in his answer... I hope you don't mind me accepting that answer? You are the top performer anyway :) –  aditya menon Jan 27 '12 at 6:47

@adityamenon Nope. No problems at all. I was surprised to get it in the first place, after Bryan updated his answer. :) –  Raven Dreamer Jan 27 '12 at 7:07

What about Kynes token (Kyne is Kynareth). A man named Fjolti who lives in the south near Autumn Watch Tower will send you to kill spirit guardians and you receive a necklace that looks like the Gaulder Amulet.

Well, it depends what you class as aedra, according to the wiki staff of magnus classes as a aedric artifact http://elderscrolls.wikia.com/wiki/Aedric_Artifacts so doing mages story would count out as helping a aedra. Also a good reward. Depending if you have dawnguard auriel is the elvish version of akatosh (Same person according to lore) getting his bow and saving the world would count as helping a aedra. Also good reward. Then there is Kyne/Kynareth's Sacred Trials with a honestly crap reward. Now there is The Heart of Dibella but the reward is again crap. Hope this helps

the Gildergreen sapling also could count as an Aedric quest because of the the association of the tree in Whiterun with Kynareth. It is a priestess of Kynareth who gives out the quest.

And, of course, siding with the Stormcloaks helps out that ol' ninth divine, Mr. Talos.
