Dar’Rakki is an immigrant who came to Skyrim at the urging of his friend Adanja to join the Khajiit Caravans. However, after crossing the border the two were attacked by bandits, resulting in Adanja’s death. As Adanja had promised Dar’Rakki she would remain by her side, the Khajiit views her death as a betrayal, and has difficulty trusting others as a consequence.

The Conspiracy of the 7000 Steps
This minor quest has Dar’Rakki asking the PC to count the steps to High Hrothgar. An estimate of the number can be found in a book near the NPC Zarlak at North Skybound Watch. In earlier version, the PC could immediately provide Dar’Rakki with an answer, but now must walk up the steps and return or retrieve the book first.

The quest has multiple outcomes, depending on whether you tell him the correct number, convince him there are 7000 steps via a speechcraft check, or lie and fail to persuade him.

– In versions prior to 3.04.6, Dar’rakki was voiced by Jay33721

  1. So I have found the Khajit Dar Rakki, but the quest 7000 steps does not advance. There is a white arrow over his head, but no significant dialogue.Nothing about the steps, no verbal cues at all. What next?

    1. Have you tried climbing the steps? There’s a trigger box at the top (There’s also a separate book that lists an approximate number). The trigger box is there to ensure you don’t just turn around after getting the quest and telling him you counted, which obviously would be immersion breaking.

      So basically, the quest marker’s just pointing at the wrong place, it should point at the trigger box (was fixed in v3.03).

    1. It’s right here. Your quest marker should point to it. You can type “sqv DialogueDarrakki” in the console and it should be the bottom alias. You should be on stage 5, or else the trigger won’t, well, trigger.


      It’s been tested countless times. Hell, Gopher himself just did this quest on his Let’s Play. So the only thing I can think of is another mod wiped it out by editing that cell.

      If you still can’t get it working, “Setstage DialogueDarrakki 10” will do the same thing.
