An Attack on Mournhold is one of the quests in the main questline of The Elder Scrolls III: Tribunal, after "Barilzar's Mazed Band." Twenty four hours after the Nerevarine recovers Barilzar's Mazed Band, Mournhold comes under attack.
- Sleep or complete other quests for twenty-four hours (in game).
- Speak with any member of the Mournhold community.
- Head to Plaza Brindisi Dorom.
With Almalexia now in possession of Barilzar's Mazed Band, the Nerevarine will no longer receive quests from the Tribunal Temple. However, after waiting twenty four hours (through sleeping or completing other quests), the Nerevarine will find Mournhold in a state of panic. Speaking with someone in Mournhold will reveal that the Plaza Brindisi Dorom is under attack. The Nerevarine must therefore head to the Plaza.
Hold the PlazaEdit
Inside the Plaza, the Nerevarine will find a number of Fabricants attacking the Guards and Ordinators within the Plaza. The Nerevarine should aid the defending population, destroying all of the Fabricants (a journal entry will appear after all of them have been removed). The Nerevarine will now face a choice as to what to do next.
If the Nerevarine speaks with a Royal Guard in the Plaza, they will inform the Nerevarine that they must report to Tienius Delitian. Delitian can be found within the Royal Palace Throne Room, and will inform the Nerevarine that the Fabricants were of a Dwemer origin, and emerged from underneath the city. Delitian reveals that the Memorial Statue (found in Plaza Brindisi Dorom) was the likely origin of the Fabricants, and asks that the Nerevarine investigate the ruins under it.
The Nerevarine may, however, speak to a High Ordinator within the Plaza. The Ordinator will instruct the Nerevarine to report to Fedris Hler within the Temple. Hler will tell the Nerevarine that a hole has opened in the center of the Plaza Brindisi Dorom, around the Memorial Statue. The Nerevarine will then be instructed to investigate this hole and the ruins within.
