10 I found some of Auryen's research on Orgnum the Maormer and his famed Coffer, which Auryen believes the Eternal Champion hid away here in Skyrim with an Ancient Evil in order to keep it from those who would misuse it. He suspects it may be a Dragon Priest burial tomb which holds it.

Objective 10: Locate King Orgnum's Coffer.
