The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion Tips

Fine Steel Longsword
You can find a Fine Steel Longsword on the broken 2nd level of Fort Coldcorn; next to it is a chest with some loot and a note. The note will say,"The sword leads the way. Half a mile. It's just past the big rock on the Right." Hopefully you didn't grab or bump the sword on your way up because it was pointing in the direction on the hidden treasure. Follow the directions from the note and find your treasure!
