Save a Prayer
To start this quest, ask about "latest rumours" in Sailen. Some of the townsfolk will tell you about Ethasi Balvel and her visits to her son, Duram.
"Ethasi Balvel has been making repeated nightly visits to her son in Evos. The townsfolk wonder if he may be ill, but Ethasi tends to dodge the question."
Go to Durham Balvel's house at the north end of the settlement. When you enter, you will see a female Imperial called Ladiana. She will tell you that her master is being haunted and asks if you can help. If you agree, she gives you Duram Balvel's Key which opens the locked trapdoor into the basement.
Speak to Ervasi. You are given four options initially: "You will cease to harass Duram and Ladiana," "I am not here to convince you, I am here to deal with you," "You misjudge me. I was hoping to be of assistance to the House Balvel" and "Remain silent."
"Remain silent," when chosen, will terminate the current conversation, with no ill effects. If you offer assistance, Ervasi asks you to kill Ladiana. If you accept this, go back to Duram's house and kill her and then return to Ervasi, who rewards you with an Amulet of Rectitude which gives the following effect: Light, 15-45 points for 60 seconds, Resist Fire 10 to 25% for 60 seconds and Shield 15-30 points for 60 seconds when activated. It has 65 charges. If you kill Ladiana, Duram is less than pleased to say the least.
The other options at any stage will eventually result in you being given the option to attack the undead which, if you decide to do so, will result in them all attacking.
Return to Duram. If you killed Ladiana, he is not happy. If you killed the ancestors, he will give you 250 septims. If you convinced the ancestors to cease their harassment, he will give you 250 septims and a Steel Jinkblade.
Whilst asking about "latest rumours" in order to start the quest Save a Prayer you may have come across mention of a witchhunter staying at the Pilgrim Hostel.
"Girynu Rathryon explained that he is a Temple witchhunter who has traced a daedra trafficker back to Sailen. Since he cannot launch an open investigation without alerting his target, he has asked me to look discreetly for evidence of daedra worship. I have been given a list of three possible suspects that I should talk to. If I get a chance, I should inspect their houses as well."
Dalam Marys, when asked about "Background" will give you his if his disposition is over 35 and your journal will update. Golveso Darys, when asked about "special items" will tell you he no longer deals in them and your journal will update. Idroso Menas will give you an abrupt answer and her disposition will drop when asked about her "Background" but you will need to ask her about it five times until your journal updates.
In the basement is a Daedroth called Khayam-I. Speak to it, and it will offer you a reward if freed, but this is untrue. If you do release him, both Khayam-I and Idroso will vanish. Return to Girynu; don't free Khayam-I and don't kill Idroso.
If you set Khayam-I free and tell Girynu that, he will reward you with 200 septims and an Amulet of Drydene's Panacea, which casts Cure Common Disease and has 75 charges. If you lied about setting Khayam-I free, you get 300 septims and the amulet. If you didn't set him free, you get 400 septims and the amulet.
Whatever you did, Idroso Menas's house is now empty, and will provide a place to stay in Sailen as well as quite a bit of loot in the various containers around the house.
