"Flash!! Ghosts in dat lighthouse! Shinin' da light, flash, flash! FLAAASSHHH!, sayin' 'Rasmo wake the hell up!"

Erasmo is a crazed elderly Bosmer residing on Stros M'kai in The Elder Scrolls Adventures: Redguard. He is in charge of fixing the Dwarven Observatory and other machinery, but has been driven to near insanity due to Richton's high demands.

History[edit | edit source]

After Amiel Richton was appointed to Provisional Governor of Stros M'kai by Tiber Septim, he tasked Erasmo with fixing the Dwarven observatory in order to progress in research on the Dwemer. At some point during the repairs, Erasmo burnt his legs on the steam jets and was forced to use a hand-made Dwarven transportation vehicle to move around. Due to Richton's many demands, Erasmo gradually came to the brink of insanity, and became sleep-deprived due to the lighthouse across from his bedroom.

Later, just before finishing the repairs on the observatory, Erasmo lost a Dwarven gear. He tasked Cyrus with getting a gear from a Dwarven Centurion in order to fix the observatory.

Dialogue[edit | edit source]

"Ahh!!!!!... Ohhhh --" Greetings, I am Cyrus.
"Aaahh! You scared Erasmo!"

(Stros M'kai) What do you know about the island? "I know Erasmo's ass is stuck here till I fix this contraption! Aaahhh!"
What? "Nothin'! I'm just doomed! Aaahhh!"
(Contraption) Calm down. You look like you fixed it. "Wooh. No. Not work yet! Fix the orrery, but 'Rasmo can't fix the telescope! Eeeek! It won't fold down. Ghosts tried to get me, torment me, flash! Flash! Flaaasshhh!, but I put most of it back together. No magic either! That gear room makes Erasmo's head hurt and burn his legs!"
(Orrery) How does the Orrery work? "Erasmo doesn't know! But it watches the sky! Dwarves knew the power of the stars, watched all the constellations and who they protected!"
(Burn Your Legs) You burnt your legs in the gear room? "Eeeek! The pain! Steam down there hot as Oblivion. Yow! Burnt my legs trying to fix the telescope. Need another gear!"
(Gear) You need another gear to fix the telescope? "Dwarven gear! Not just any gear. Needs to go on the far side. Damn! I'd do it myself if it weren't for my legs."
(Gear Room) Slow down, friend. What's in the gear room? "Gears! Flash!! Run on steam, them Dwarves had very very very large brains! Danger! Scary place!"
(Constellations) Constellations? Who do the constellations protect? "Flash!! Each other! Didn't your parents teach you about the stars of Tamriel? The 3 Guardians each protect 3 charges from the Snake!"
(Guardians) What are the guardian constellations? "Every schoolboy knows of the Warrior, the Thief, and the Wizard. Of course, the Dwarves didn't believe in magic, so the Wizard is the Mechanist to them."
(Charges) What do you mean, charges? "Damn! You never read as a child! The guardians each protect the 3 charges of their circle. Flash!! The Thief watches the Lover and Shadow. Warrior the Steed, and on and on. You Redguards are slow!"
(Snake) What does the Snake constellation do? "He slithers through the sky, ever changing with the stars. The Dwarves...smart to watch him, just as each guardian watches their charges."
(League) You ever run into any pirates? Anybody known as Restless League? "You the first person I've seen in a while. Flash!! Nobody comes up here, especially pirates! They scared, run away!"
Run away from what? "Da ghosts!"
(Ghosts) Ghosts? What ghosts? "Flash!! Ghosts in dat lighthouse! Shinin' da light, flash! Flash! Flaaasshhh!, sayin' 'Rasmo wake da hell up!"
(Lighthouse) What about the lighthouse? "Saintsport ghosts will get you! Get you! Flash! Flash! Flaaasshhh! Their lights will haunt you!"
(Lights) Lights in the lighthouse? You're not making sense. "Damn lights -- on then off, flash! Flash! Flaaasshhh! -- keep my ass up all night!"
(Iszara) I'm looking for a woman named Iszara. Have you heard of her? "I hear many things. I hear the pipes rumble, the gears turn, and the whistle of steam! Funny, Erasmo never hears any women."
(Observatory) What is this place? "What! Place scares me now! Some ancient Dwarven observatory....Flash! Flash! Flaaasshhh!!"
What...? "Richton ordered me to fix it, but the ghosts keep me flaaasshhh! Awake!"
(Dwarves) You say this place is Dwarven? "Flash!! Dat's what Erasmo said! Them Dwarves knew a thing or two. Richton sent his men to the ruins, and me here to fix this, flash! Flash! Flaaasshhh!, contraption!"
Flash!...? "...Flash! Flaaasshhh!"
(Dwarven Ruins) You mentioned the Dwarven ruins? "Dwarves...flash! Flash! Flaaasshhh! Liked to build everything in small pieces! Damn guggles split without leaving instructions on their, flash!, toys! The ruins too big and scary for me! See for yourself, go to the west!"
(Palace) Have you ever been to the Palace? "Once, before the ghosts! Delivered some Dwarven books to Richton. You don't go in there unless you have something he wants."
(Richton) Why did Richton send you here to fix it? "Aahhh!"
Hey, man, stop screaming! "But Richton kill 'Rasmo if he not fix! I was living here, lots of space and pretty metally stuff! He let me stay if I fix...if not, he say cut off Erasmo's arms and put me in a eehhh, box!"
(Bye) Stay calm, Erasmo.

After retrieving the Dwemer Gear:

Hello again, Erasmo. "He's back!"

(Give Gear) Here's the Dwarven gear you need to fix the telescope. "Ah haaa! You found one! Good, good. But I'm not going back down to the gear room. You gonna have to do it...put the gear in on the far side!"
I'll give it a try.
(Bye) Stay calm, Erasmo.

After placing the Dwemer Gear:

Hello again, Erasmo. "My hero!"

(Telescope Fixed) You can relax now, the telescope is fixed. "Horaaay!! My hero! Now, I can -- uh -- I can keep doing -- what I do! At least Richton won't cut my arms off now! Horraay! Use it as you like, you are welcome here!"
(Bye) Stay calm, Erasmo.
