Stage Journal Entry
0, 5 [Technical stages]
10 I found a journal of Auryen's that talks about the Dagger of Symmachus and how he theorizes that it may be held by some kind of ritualist on Solstheim near Frykte Peak perhaps. If I find myself on Solstheim, I should keep an eye out.

Objective 10: Locate the Dagger of Symmachus.

30 I found the Dagger of Symmachus at an altar at Saering's Watch, though there is no sign of the dagger's owner.

50 If it has already been found:
I have found Auryen's notes on The Dagger of Symmachus, but I already found it. He really should stop leaving these superfluous notes lying around.
