Bug: Francine Aldard, in Akamora’s Mage Guild, will send the player to a quest in Marog. Her exclusive topic for “Marog” requires that the quest stage is 10. If the player never acquired the topic from other soucers before, it will not directly get from her this time.
Solution: Applied a “AddTopic” within the Result Box of the topic “letter of apology” to allow the player to get access to the exclusive topic “Marog” for Francine Aldard in this specific situation.
Created a patch at http://www.nexusmods.com/morrowind/mods/43107/? under the number 18.

Topic “letter of apology” → This deeply bothers me, but I think there's a way to at least somewhat rectify this failing. I can try and apologize to him. Please, %PCName, go to Marog and deliver this letter to Master Athyrion. Ranosa is possibly right that I'm not well-advised to make the journey myself, but as an outsider you should have less to explain and less to fear. Here, these potions will help you, %PCName.
