Daedalus,

I like the way you put it, I haven't played this one yet but what you said makes sense and would play it that way. |_P

I concur, sir! (he says four years later) ;)

'Dedicated' doesn't mean 'donated'. It just means you take it to the altar and promise the ancestors that you'll use the treasure for a good cause, i.e. to fight Morcar.

The Ancestors just want to make sure you're not a filthy thieving rat like most of their visitors these days.

The Quest looks as if it's designed so that you get the hammer (Sognirstane) very early in the adventure and are tempted to just leave without bothering to find the altar. In which case the ancestors won't be happy.
