my friend has oblivion for the 360. hes on the quest imperial corruption.... and he killed the guard captain. sercantius quintilius or what ever.. the one in the shinny armor.. and he cant complete the quest because hes dead.. the only way he sees him is if he kills abunch of people, but if he does that then he cant talk to him. can he complete this quest? or is it the end of that?
You are supposed to find Hieronymus Lex, but he may be transfered to Anvil. If that is the case, then you need to find the person you just said was killed. I thought all watch captains were essential, but in either case, the person bumps you along to Idius Hayne. Just talk to him and you will skip the step.
how do you find the guy.. if hes dead???? as in.. hes not around.. and where would you find that other guy Idius Hayne?
He's just in the Imperial city. It's just much harder when you don't have a quest marker to guide you. My advice: just continue your game, do some other quests in the city, but keep an eye out for him and you'll see him eventually. Or, if you want to cheat, just find the dead body and resurect him with the console.
