well umbra, you can just go get it in the ruins south of the Imperial city, and goldbrand is in another deadric quest
im not quite sure which.
and with umbra, you get special ebony, at least i did.
well i found proof Sutek,
in the missive for the nirnroot quest that sinderian gives you in Skingrad, he talks about the plant(nirnroot) adapting quickly because of the rather magical ash salts from Red Mountain which erupted and talks about the blight that infested the dunmer homeland many years ago.
proof that morrowind happened before oblivion
