A tiny adventure and a cozy home.

Find Talasen, complete his quest and you shall obtain the location.

In the Imperial City, a mage needs the help of an intrepid adventurer!
Find the items he needs to lift a curse placed on him by an enemy, and
gain access to a house of your own-- a house with plenty of storage,
plenty of room, and a few mysteries....

SPOILER: To start the quest, go to the King and Queen Tavern and talk
to the High Elf Talasen. He'll tell you the rest.

Note from the authors:
Mage's rest started as the idea of having a beautiful house with a funny butler. With time, the butler ended up being a high elf mage and not a butler at all. We thought of making him a companion, but with Skyrim coming out in less than a week, Talasen will only be around, but will not become close tot he player. After all, he does have his own business to attend to ;)

The Mage's Rest is a house with a story. The previous owner, Talasen's mentor, had the habbit of writing his thoughts whenever he felt like it - which means often. You can find many scattered notes all around the house, and learn about Narien and his family.
Although Narien and his wife are gone now, his daughters are still around. Don't worry, they will not come back to claim the house ;)

Note that you will find two "Recycle" chests in the house - one in the kitchenette, the other in the bathroom. Both are RESPAWNING chests. Use them to delete items only.
