Auryen's Notes: Umbra (DBM_AMJournalQST05)
Stage Journal Entry
10 Auryen's journals record fascinating information about the sword Umbra which was thought destroyed, but he has heard rumors of bloodthirsty warrior roaming the lands of the Reach. If I find myself out there, I should be wary but also look to the possibility of finding the blade.

Objective: Locate Umbra.

30 I was attacked in the Reach by an ebony clad warrior who gave no pause or reason for his aggression and after his defeat, found he had the blade Umbra, apparently driven mad by it. I best put it in safe keeping.
50 If it has already been found: The journals of Auryen relay rumors of a warrior possessing Umbra in the Reach, and in fact they turned out to be true as I have already found and claimed the blade. One more journal of Auryen's that can be filed away under "complete".
