I found 2 Unusual Gems (one I found in Kodlak's Room). So I got a quest to bring that gem to house mark near Riften. When I reach there, the house door is locked and only unlocked with key!

Am I missing something? What am I supposed to do?


One of the things you can do is show it to Maul, the Nord who accosts you when you first enter Riften. He will direct you to Vex, in the Thieves Guild, who starts the next quest, No Stone Unturned.

You cannot access Vex without joining the Thieves Guild, so if you're interested in completing the quest, you'll have to join up.

  • You say "One of the things" is there someone else you can take it to? – Kevin D Nov 28 '11 at 13:06
  • @KevinD - nope. The alternative is to simply take it directly to Vex. – Raven Dreamer Nov 28 '11 at 13:31
  • Thanks, I had been wondering if there was a more legal path to take with the gems. – Kevin D Nov 28 '11 at 13:37
  • @KevinD well, ironically, none of the gems are marked owned, so taking the unusual gems themselves isn't considered stealing. You might have to do some B&E to get to some of them, though. – Raven Dreamer Nov 28 '11 at 14:34

    @Nilzor as I mention in my answer, you have to join the thieves guild first. Talk to Brynjolf in Riften and he'll start you on your way. – Raven Dreamer Dec 12 '11 at 15:00
