Upon discovering the remains of Malrus in Silent Moons Camp, you follow the instructions in his journal to unseal the vault near his corpse by activating three shrines around Skyrim.
- Read Malrus' Journal
- Find the Nordic Runestone
- Find the Snow Elf Shrine
- Find the Dwemer Monument
- Retrieve Malrus' Codex
Find the Nordic Runestone
Find the Snow Elf Shrine
Find the Dwemer Monument
Seek out the final runestone in the moutains above the Nightgate Inn. This runestone is very secluded and requires extensive scaling on horseback. Reaching it by foot is impossible. The "correct" option is to complete Coming of Age that takes you through Ironbind Barrow. This location has an Overlook at the end that sits right below the monument.
Retrieve Malrus' Codex
Return to Silent Moons Camp where the vault in the floor should now be unlocked revealing the codex.
