 Detailed Walkthrough
 An annoyed Enchanter
 The Bad Actor
The fool, Marcel Maurard, just outside Miun-Gei's shop, will tell you that he is an actor looking for work and merely selling things to make ends meet. You can attempt to persuade or threaten him to leave, but he won't budge (short of killing him, which rewards only 250 gold and provides a smaller disposition increase). Maurard does mention that he would leave if only he could find a theater troupe.
 The Playwright
If you ask around town about a troupe, you'll soon find out that Crassius Curio has just written a (questionable) new play and is looking to form a troupe. Curio can be found in the Curio manor in the Hlaalu Plaza in Vivec.
 Deliver the good News
Chat with the interesting Curio for a bit to find out some basic information about the play as well as receive an unfinished copy and then return to Maurard with the news. Once Maurard is taken care of, return to Miun-Gei for an Iron Shardskewer. His disposition jumps by 15 points, which should result in slightly lower prices.
- There is a bug with this quest in some versions of the game. If you kill Marcel and return to Miun-Gei, you will be rewarded with 250 gold; every time you talk with him you'll get the reward, non-stop. This is fixed in later game patches.
