Auryen's Notes: The Dragonmail Cuirass (DBM_AMJournalQST08)
Stage Journal Entry
0, 5 [Technical stages]
10 Auryen's research notes indicate that the Dragonmail Cuirass, once a very unique relic and still quite powerful by all standards, may have made it's way to Skyrim or Solstheim by way of a Telvanni wizard murderer. I should be cautious and watchful should I have any dealings with any Telvanni.

Objective 10: Locate the Dragonmail Cuirass.

30 I uncovered the Dragonmail Cuirass, hidden deep within High Point Tower, guarded by the ex-student of Neloth, who apparently had a sordid past even before coming into dealings with the wizard.

50 If it has already been found:
Auryen's notes record information about the movements of the Dragonmail Cuirass and its possible presence in the hands of a Telvanni wizard. I have actually already encountered the sordid affair and recovered the armor. One more journal for the pile of stuff to take to the basement.
