DialogueEdit

Show: Nchuleftingth Expedition

"Are you looking for me? You want to join the Mages Guild?"

Nchuleftingth "You can get there by going around the mountains near Suran and heading northeast along the Foyada Nadanat, or you can start in Molag Mar and head northwest towards Mount Kand. Go north around Mount Kand and along the north side of the Foyada."
excavation report "Did you get the excavation report? Do you have it with you?"
Yes, here it is. "Thank you, Nerevarine (Player name). This report will be helpful, I'm sure."
No, not yet. "I need that report, Nerevarine (Player name). I cannot work with all these meaningless delays."
excavation report "If you have such a keen interest in scholarship, perhaps you'd like to join the Mages Guild."
Show: Chronicles of Nchuleft

"What's so important that you would interrupt my studies? If you must have duties for the Mages Guild, I suppose I could think of something."

duties "Yes, Warlock (Rank), there is something you could do for me. I am looking for a copy of the rare Dwarven book Chronicles of Nchuleft."
Chronicles of Nchuleft "It is a rare Dwarven tome. None of the Mages Guild branches have a copy, and it is simply *essential* to my research. Would you be willing to find a copy for me?"
Yes. "Excellent. Here's 250 septims to cover your expenses. Time is of the essence."
No. "I guess I'll have to get Bribanne Erien to do it."

After obtaining the book:

"Well, don't just stand there. Have you found a copy of Chronicles of Nchuleft or not?"

Chronicles of Nchuleft "You actually found a copy? Excellent, now give the book to me."
Give her the book. "I'm impressed, Warlock (Rank). I hope you are always this efficient."
Keep the book. "I thought we had an agreement, Nerevarine (Player name). Apparently your word cannot be trusted."
Show: A Potion from Skink-in-Tree's-Shade

"What's so important that you would interrupt my studies? If you must have duties for the Mages Guild, I suppose I could think of something."

duties "I have been waiting for *ages* to get a Detect Creatures potion fron Skink-in-Tree's-Shade in Sadrith Mora."
Detect Creatures potion "It's simply taking Skink-in-Tree's-Shade forever to finish it. Go to Wolverine Hall in Sadrith Mora and bring the potion back to me as soon as Skink is finished."

After obtaining the potion:

"Did you get the Detect Creatures potion from Skins?"

Detect Creatures potion "Ah, at last, you've brought me a Detect Creatures potion. Will you give the potion to me now?"
Yes, here it is "Excellent. Why don't I give you a potion more useful to a Warlock (Rank) in the field?"
No "Unlike a proper Warlock (Rank), you do not keep your word. I certainly am not going to give you any more duties until you deliver a Detect Creatures potion to me."
Show: Steal Chimarvamidium

"What's so important that you would interrupt my studies? If you must have duties for the Mages Guild, I suppose I could think of something."

duties "Sirilonwe in the Mages Guild in Vivec has somehow acquired a copy of Chimarvamidium."
Chimarvamidium "It is the sixth volume of Marobar Sul's "Ancient Tales of the Dwemer." Most of the "Ancient Tales" are not truly Dwemer in origin, but this one may be an exception. It deals with some sort of golem or centurion. Would you be willing to "borrow" this book for me?"
Yes. "Thank you, Nerevarine (Player name). Sirilonwe probably keeps the book near her in the Mages Guild in Vivec. Do whatever it takes to get the book and then return it to me. If you're caught stealing, of course, it is a crime against the guild, so be careful. And take these scrolls just in case."
No. "Don't think of it as breaking your oath to the Guild, Nerevarine (Player name). It is just a small favor. For the advancement of the art and science of magic. If you're caught, of course, you will have to accept the consequences."

After obtaining the book:

"Did you get Chimarvamidium?"

Chimarvamidium "You have a copy of Chimarvamidium? Will you let me borrow the book?"
Give her the book. "Thank you, Nerevarine (Player name). I will return the book to you soon, but in the meantime, I have more duties for you."
Keep the book. "That is very disappointing, Nerevarine (Player name)."
Show: A Wizard's Staff

"What's so important that you would interrupt my studies? If you must have duties for the Mages Guild, I suppose I could think of something."

Advancement "In order to advance to the rank of Wizard, you must have a Wizard's Staff."
Wizard's Staff "I could sell you a Wizard's Staff, but they are quite expensive at 5,000 septims. However, I also know of a former member of our order, Anirne, who may still have her Wizard's Staff."
Buy a Wizard's Staff. "Very well, I will take your gold... I assume it's all there. And give you this Wizard's Staff."
Wizard's Staff "Yes, it is wise to keep your Wizard's Staff with you at all times."
Advancement "Congratulations, you are now Nerevarine (Player name) the Wizard."
Ask about Anirne. "Really any Wizard's Staff will do, but it is n ocrime to take one from a renegade and outlaw like Anirne. Last I heard, she was in the caverns of Sud."
Sud "It is a cavern on the far west coast of Sheogorad, due west of Dagon Fel. There is an inlet west of Dagon Fel before you reach the real coast. Do not be fooled by this."

After obtaining a staff from a rogue wizard:

Wizard's Staff "So you have a Wizard's Staff? Yes, that one will do. You are now ready for advancement."

Show: Huleen's Hut

"What's so important that you would interrupt my studies? If you must have duties for the Mages Guild, I suppose I could think of something."

duties "I have been distracted from my studies by several reports from Maar Gan. Apparently there is some sort of disturbance at Huleen's hut."
Huleen's hut "Since Huleen is a member of the Guild, we really ought to do something about the disturbance. I simply haven't had time to do it myself. My research is at an absolutely critical phase. Would yo ugo to Maar Gan and take a look for me?"
Yes. "Excellent, Nerevarine (Player name). Go to Maar Gan. I'm sure someone there can give you further directions. Take care of this for me so I can continue my studies in peace."
No. "Well, maybe Tarandur can do it. I'll ask next time I see him. You're not the only Wizard (Rank) we have, you know."

After killing the scamp at Huleen's hut:

"What did you find at Huleen's hut? Was it worth all these intolerable interruptions?"

Huleen's hut "So Huleen's apprentice summoned a scamp? Is that all? I can't believe I was distracted from my studies for something so trivial. Speaking of which, I discovered these scrolls during my research. You may find them useful."
Show: Return Chimarvamidium

"What's so important that you would interrupt my studies? If you must have duties for the Mages Guild, I suppose I could think of something."

duties "Yes, Nerevarine (Player name), I have finished my study of Chimarvamidium."
Chimarvamidium "Can you believe this isn't about a Dwemer construct at all? This book was completely useless. In any case, I need you to return the book before Sirilonwe suspects anything. Return the book to wherever you found it."

After returning the book:

"Did you return Chimarvamidium?"

Chimarvamidium "The book has been returned? Good work, Wizard (Rank). Once I know the locations of some Dwemer ruins, I will be asking you to travel to some dangerous places. These amulets will help you return to safety."
Show: Dwemer Tube from Arkngthunch-Sturdumz

"More interruptions, Wizard (Rank)? Do you want more duties? Why are you here?"

duties "I'm so glad you asked, Wizard (Rank). At this delicate phase of my research, I will need to study a Dwemer Tube."
Dwemer Tube "They're easy enough to find. I believe I saw some in Arkngthunch-Sturdumz when I was last there. Would you be willing to travel there and bring back the Dwemer Tube?"
Yes. "I appreciate your dedication, Nerevarine (Player name). Arkngthunch-Sturdumz is northwest of Gnisis, but there's an easier way to get there. Go to Ald Velothi and follow the coast to the west."
Dwemer Tube "Dwemer Tubes shouldn't be too hard to find. Go to Ald Velothi and travel along the coast to the west. You'll cross a bridge and you'll see Arkngthunch-Sturdumz ahead of you. You can't miss it."
Ald Velothi "Take the Silt Strider to Gnisis and follow the roads north. I will mark Ald Velothi on your map."
No. "I'm disappointed, Nerevarine (Player name). You are obviously not truly dedicated to research. If you're concerned about Imperial Law, there's no need to worry. I will, of course, turn the device over to the Chair of Dwemer Studies... just as soon as I've finished my research."
Chair of Dwemer Studies "Currently, the Chair is empty and the Great Houses can't agree on a replacement. I believe Hasphat Antabolis was nominated... I'd try to get the position myself, but I fear all the meetings and bookkeeping would take time away from my research."

After obtaining a tube:

"Have you found a Dwemer Tube? Many of my studies cannot continue until I have one in my possession."

Dwemer Tube "Have you found a Dwemer Tube?"
Give her the Dwemer Tube. "Yes, this is what I wanted. Now I can finally study these "bthurkz" the Dwarves wrote about. I am impressed by your dedication to scholarship. Good work, Nerevarine (Player name)."
Keep the Dwemer Tube. "It is not a toy, Nerevarine (Player name). It is a valuable Dwemer artifact that is simply essential to my research."
Show: Scarab Plans in Mzuleft

"More interruptions, Wizard (Rank)? Do you want more duties? Why are you here?"

duties "I want you to find some Dwemer plans or blueprints."
blueprints "Senilias already sent the blueprints he found in Nchuleftingth to the Emperor... But the excavation report mentioned Mzuleft, which is southwest of Dagon Fel. You will need to swim or fly across parts of the Sea of Ghosts. Bring back any plans or blueprints you find."
blueprints "Well, have you found and Dwemer plans yet?"
Give her the plans. "Did you drop them on the way back? Where are they?"
Keep the plans. "If you refuse to hand the blueprints over, I will have no choice but to report this to the rest of the Mages Guild and the Imperial Authorities."
excavation report "This is interesting... The excavation report mentions another Dwemer ruin, Mzuleft. Would you go there and look for some blueprints?"

After obtaining the Scarab blueprints:

"Did you find any plans or blueprints in Mzuleft?"

blueprints "Well, have you found and Dwemer plans yet?"
Give her the plans. "Yes, this is exactly what I was looking for. Excellent work, Wizard (Rank)."
Show: Bethamez

"More interruptions, Master Wizard (Rank)? Do you want more duties? Why are you here?"

duties "I have heard that miners in the Gnisis Eggmine broke into the ruins of Bethamez."
Bethamez "Officially, the Gnisis eggmine was closed because of blight, but I heard that miners broke into the lost Dwemer ruin of Bethamez. I have also heard that they found Dwemer plans similar to the blueprints you brought me before. Go to the Gnisis eggmine and bring back any plans or blueprints you find."
blueprints "I believe there are more blueprints in Bethamez."
Bethamez "Have you found any more Dwemer plans or blueprints?"
Yes, here they are. "Well, where are they? Didn't you bring the plans with you?"
No, not yet. "I understand the temptation of scholarship, but this is not the time to joke around."

After retrieving the plans:

"Did you find any plans or blueprints in Bethamez?"

Bethamez "Have you found any more Dwemer plans or blueprints?"
Yes, here they are. "This is really remarkable, Nerevarine (Player name). These plans are very similar. Perhaps with both of them in my possession, I can discover their secrets. It's a shame Arch-Mage Trebonius doesn't share your dedication to scholarship."
Bethamez "Someday your work in Dwemer archeology may surpass even myself or Hasphat Antabolis."
blueprints "Both of these plans seem to be for some kind of metal insect. I do not know what to make of them yet. I will keep you fully informed of any discoveries, Master Wizard (Rank)."
Show: Mystery of the Dwarves

Egg of Time "This book is puzzling to me. You might want to ask Hasphat Antabolis in Balmora."
Divine Metaphysics "Hm. I do not know what to tell you about that book. I can make sense of Dwemer plans, but I cannot read their language. You might want to ask Hasphat Antabolis in Balmora."

Divine Metaphysics (While carrying "Hanging Gardens") "I cannot make sense of this. Even when I try using this "Hanging Gardens" you've found as a translation key, the words simply do not make any sense. I am certain the author did not know any magic himself. Yes, these are probably just the ramblings of some Dwarven lunatic."
Hanging Gardens "Now this is an interesting book, Nerevarine (Player name). It appears to be written in btoh Dwemer and Aldmeris. If you could find a scholar of the Dwemer who knew Aldmeris, you might be able to translate portions of the Dwemer text. This book is priceless in the right hands."
Show: Arch-Mage

"More interruptions, Master Wizard? Do you want more duties? Why are you here?"

duties "It's a shame the Mages Guild isn't led by someone with your devotion to Scholarship. Perhaps if you speak with Trebonius, you can make him listen to reason."
Trebonius "I wish the Guild were led by someone with your respect for scholarship, Master Wizard. Perhaps you could speak with him and make him see reason."
