Detailed WalkthroughEdit


Sugar-Lips Habasi in Balmora at the South Wall Cornerclub asks you to free New-Shoes Bragor, a fellow Thieves Guild member who is being held in the Imperial Legion prison in Fort Pelagiad. Sugar-Lips suggests that this can be accomplished by blackmailing Shadbak gra-Burbug, a female Orc and member of the Imperial Legion in Pelagiad, with proof that she's involved in smuggling Dwemer artifacts, an activity that is illegal in Vvardenfell.

Travel to PelagiadEdit

The quickest way to reach Pelagiad from Balmora is by taking the silt strider to Seyda Neen and then casting Divine Intervention to end up at Fort Pelagiad. Alternatives include following the path to the east from Seyda Neen, checking all roadsigns to Pelagiad, or proceeding east-southeast out of Balmora past the Moonmoth Legion Fort, crossing the Foyada Mamaea into the Ascadian Isles region, following the signs to Pelagiad.

Locate Mebestian EnceEdit

Shadbak gra-Burbug can be bought...

Mebestian Ence is a trader in Pelagiad whose shop is located across the street from the Halfway Tavern. Mebestian Ence smuggles Dwemer goods and Shadbak gra-Burbug takes bribes from Ence to overlook his activities. Once in Ence's shop you can find a Dwemer coherer in a small locked (50) chest on a shelf upstairs, or it may be purchased from him for around 60 gold.

Confronting Shadbak gra-BurbugEdit

Shadbak gra-Burbug can be found just inside Fort Pelagiad, up the street from Mebestian's shop. Confront Shadbak about the artifact and convince her to release New-Shoes. If you stole the artifact from Mebestian, don't admit to it. She will incriminate herself; once she does, force her to release New-Shoes.

Completing the QuestEdit

After confronting Shadbak, go through the "South Wall" door to the cells downstairs. You will find New-Shoes in one of the cells close to the evidence chest awaiting the final paperwork, and you can speak to him through the door. He will give you his pair of new exquisite shoes, as they've been nothing but trouble for him.

Return to Balmora, and speak with Sugar-Lips Habasi for a reward of 1,000 gold.


  • You can free the other prisoner by stealing the Fort Pelagiad prison key from Angoril, the fort's master-at-arms, but Bragor cannot be freed using this key. If you try to select the topic "get me out" (which successfully frees the other prisoner), Bragor will tell you that he'll be killed if he escapes from prison. The only way to free him is to do so via blackmail.
  • Any Dwemer Coherer will work when freeing New-Shoes. It doesn't have to be one from Mebestian's.
  • New-Shoes disappears from game after finishing this quest. If you didn't speak with him before returning to Habasi, shoes are not rewarded.
  • New-Shoes death won't cause quest to fail, but Shadbak's death will fail quest.

10 Sugar-Lips Habasi told me that New-Shoes Bragor was caught by the guards in Pelagiad and is being held in Fort Pelagiad. Habasi heard that Mebestien Ence is secretly smuggling Dwemer materials and that Shadbak gra-Burbug, a guard in Fort Pelagiad, has been taking bribes to overlook the smuggling. I should steal a Dwemer artifact from Mebestien Ence, show it to Shadbak gra-Burbug, and demand that New-Shoes Bragor be released.
50 Shadbak gar-Burbug agreed to release New-Shoes Bragor when I showed her the Dwemer artifact.
70 New-Shoes Bragor gave me his shoes.
100 Finishes quest  Sugar-Lips Habasi thanked me for getting New-Shoes Bragor released.
110 Finishes quest  Sugar-Lips Habasi wasn't happy that the person who was to help us free our brother Bragor is dead. He will have to stay in his cell.
