DialogueEdit

Show: Hlaalu Stronghold

"Are you looking for me? Do you want to build a stronghold?"

stronghold "If you want to build a stronghold, I must have a construction contract and a land deed. Baren Alen at the Hlaalu Vaults in Vivec can provide you with the land deed, but you must speak with Duke Vedam Dren to get the construction contract."
construction contract "Only the Duke can issue construction contracts. All three Great Houses have been ignoring this rule recently, but I have been ordered to insist that all new stronghold have the proper papers."
land deed "Yes, you will need a land deed. Baren Alen at the Hlaalu Treasury can sell you one."
stronghold "Do you have the proper papers?"
Yes, here it is. "I'm not buying that one, Nerevarine (Player name). Either give me the papers or stop wasting my time."
No, not yet. "I can't build your stronghold without the proper papers. Go see Baren Alen in Vivec and Duke Vedam Dren in Ebonheart."

After obtaining the papers:

"Are you looking for me? Do you want to build a stronghold?"

stronghold "Do you have the proper papers?"
Yes, here it is. "Yes, everything seems to be in order. I will give the orders to begin construction."
stronghold "The construction should begin any day now."
construction contract "There is no need for you to get another construction contract."

After progress has started:

"Do you want to discuss your stronghold?"

stronghold "I want you to go check on your stronghold and talk to the foreman, Durbul gro-Rush, to make sure everything is going as planned. Rethan Manor is being built on the Odai Plateau. If you follow the Odai River south of Balmora, you should see construction to the southwest after the wood bridge. I will mark it on your map."
stronghold "Just go talk to Durbul gro-Rush at the site of your new stronghold."

After speaking to the foreman:

"Do you want to discuss your stronghold?"

stronghold "So what did Durbul gro-Rush say? Ah, that is good news. Your stronghold should be ready soon, then. Thank you for keeping me up to date."

After more progress has been made:

"Do you want to discuss your stronghold?"

stronghold "When you are ready to improve your stronghold, you will need to find some business to engage in, such as farming or egg mining."
egg mining "I believe there are several egg mines near your stronghold, Nerevarine (Player name). Unfortunately, the only one that is on the land your purchased is the Shurdan-Raplay Egg Mine, which is blighted. If oyu cure the kwama queen in the Shurdan-Raplay mine and recruit some miners, you will have a profitable business for your stronghold."
Shurdan-Raplay "It's just across the River Odai from your stronghold. The queen there is blighted. If you need scrolls of cure blight, try speaking with Hetman Abelmawia in Gnisis or Pierlette Rostorad in Sadrith Mora."
recruit some miners "In House Hlaalu, we always have a shortage of egg miners. But this gives us the opportunity to recruit miners from the other Houses. There are usually some unemployed miners in Gnisis and Tel Aruhn. Go to either of these cities and ask around."

After curing the queen:

"Do you want to discuss your stronghold?"

Shurdan-Raplay "The queen there is no longer blighted. Now you can recruit some miners."

After recruiting miners:

"Do you want to discuss your stronghold?"

stronghold "Your stronghold is now helping House Hlaalu with business and trade. I will give the orders to begin the next phase of construction."
stronghold "I have given the orders to begin the next phase of construction. Give it some time, Nerevarine (Player name)."
egg mining "Egg mining may not be glamorous, but it's a good, steady business. You may come to appreciate it in time."
recruit some miners "You've recruited some miners and the Shurdan-Raplay Egg Mine should give you some steady income."
Shurdan-Raplay "The Shurdan-Raplay Egg Mine is back in business."

After more progress has been made:

"Do you want to discuss your stronghold?"

stronghold "The improvements to your stronghold are complete. Speak with me again when you need a stronghold for a Councilor of House Hlaalu."

After becoming a House Father:

"Do you want to discuss your stronghold?"

stronghold "You have earned a high rank in House Hlaalu, and I am prepared to give you the stronghold you deserve, Nerevarine (Player name). Alas, before anyone would be willing to move to your stronghold, you must find a way to guard against bandits that prey on your trade."
guard against bandits "Yes, go to the Fighters Guild or the Imperial Legion here in Balmora. See if they will let you hire someone to garrison your stronghold. Perhaps with their aid you can track down the bandits near your stronghold."

After hiring a guard:

"Do you want to discuss your stronghold?"

guard against bandits "I see that you hired a guard from the Fighters Guild. Now you must find the bandits nearby and kill their leader."

After defeating the bandits:

"Do you want to discuss your stronghold?"

guard against bandits "I hope the hired guard was helpful in rooting out the bandits. I will give the orders to put the finishing touches on your stronghold."
guard against bandits "There are no more bandits near your stronghold to guard against."
stronghold "I have given the orders to begin the final stages of your stronghold, House Father."

When the Stronghold is complete:

"Do you want to discuss your stronghold?"

stronghold "Your stronghold is complete, House Father. It rivals that of the greatest Hlaalu councilors."
