Type Description
Side Quest

A cursory review of the hideaway's ledgers by Gaute has revealed an issue of utmost concern — so concerning, in fact, that he wishes to speak with Clive about it personally.

Payback: Walkthrough

Payback is a Side Quest you can pick up from the Reading Table in Clive's Chambers. Read the letter Off the Record and accept the quest to begin.

Follow the marker and speak to Gaute. After the cutscene, you'll need to speak to Martha in Martha's Rest and Isabelle in Northreach. Fast travel to each location and speak to the two characters.

Once that's done, return to The Hideaway and speak to Gaute again. Then go and speak to Charon at her stall. Watch the cutscene, which ends the quest.
