The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion Tips

Free Ebony and Gold
If you are a level of 18 or higher, you can get a free ebony item and around 275 gold. Go to the cave called sinkhole cave just north of the Imperial City. Go inside and kill the rouges. When you reach a bowl looking room, go left until you reach a passage way that leads to Sinkhole Cave Citadel. Go inside and kill some more rouges. Then procede across the bridges to the back of the room, where a chest that is unlocked will posses an ebony item and quite a bit of gold. The thing i like about this hint is that about every week or so. The rouges return and the chest is refilled with a more valuble item and more gold.
