Niranye's house

There are two entrances; a front entrance and side entrance which is in the yard attached to the property. The house is locked with novice level locks on both doors whenever she is not in and at night. When entering through the front door you enter into the middle of three rooms containing end tables on either side of the door, a dresser opposite against the south wall with an iron dagger, a pickaxe and a bottle of alto wine on top, with a fancy jug on the floor to the left. Against the east wall, to the right of a doorway is a set of shelves holding a knapsack, a lute, a bowl and goblet. While against the west wall are a column of three wall shelves with a hunting bow, a flute and a goat hide on them--(see bugs). There is a chair in the southwestern corner and another to the right of a doorway on the west wall.

The doorway leads into her bedroom which contains an owned double bed coming out from the west wall, an end table in the southwestern corner, while against the south wall is a set of shelves holding several sets of clothes and boots, a leather strip and copies of Lost Legends and The Firsthold Revolt, with a wash basin on a stand to the right of the shelves. Against the north wall is a dresser containing more clothes and against the east wall is a cupboard holding a bottle of alto wine and four more common books. The doorway to the east leads into the kitchen and dining room, with an entrance on the east wall and food sacks all around the room. There is a wooden table with two chairs is in the middle of the room with a bottle of Nord mead, a loaf of bread and a bowl containing two green apples on top. In the southeastern corner is a cooking pot on a stand with a pile of firewood beside it. There are a couple of cauldrons in the southwest corner. Against the north wall is a set of shelves holding a bottle of Nord mead, a bowl of bone meal, a portion of grilled leeks, a goat cheese wedge, a wooden bowl containing four bunches of jazbay grapes and a cast iron pot containing two carrots, with a basket containing a gourd to the right. Against the west wall, to the right of the doorway to the middle room is a cupboard holding a bowl of garlic bulbs, a sliced goat cheese and a bowl of frost salts. There is a hidden panel in the wall between the cauldrons and cooking pot, on the south wall behind which there is a flight of wooden stairs leading down to the right. At the bottom there is a master locked door that opens into Niranye's basement.

Niranye's Basement[edit]

Niranye's basement

This consists of one large dimly lit room with a practice dummy in the southwestern corner, a small unit and tall wardrobe against the west wall, a small square wooden table and two chairs, a set of shelves and an expert locked safe against the north wall and against the east wall are a couple of food barrels with a crate in front and two archery dummies either side. Everything is empty except for the safe, which contains some average loot along with two letters from Linwe which relate to the reputation quest, but aren't vital to the success.


  • This barrel only appears once you have completed the relevant reputation quest. It is marked with Cache Cache, which is one of three thieves caches found in the city.
  • The key to the safe in the concealed basement can be obtained by pickpocketing Niranye--(see bugs).
