The Battle for Castle Kvatch

"We saw the smoke from the Gold Road while out on patrol. How can we help?"

Follow me! "We'll be right behind you."

If approached again:

"Lead the way, I'm right behind you."


The Fort Sutch Oblivion Gate

Imperial Legion Soldier: "Sir, there's too many of them! We have to fall back!"
Imperial Legion Captain: "No! We hold them here."

After speaking with the Hero:

Imperial Legion Captain: "We can use your (referring to the Hero of Kvatch) help! Let's go!"


  • "Hail, good citizen! How can I be of service?"
  • "Hail, citizen. I speak for the Emperor. Or... at least I did..."
  • "What is it, sir?"
  • "State your business, citizen."
  • "Duty calls."
  • "There's evil afoot, citizen, and I've little time for chatter. What is it?"
  • "Stay safe, citizen. These are dark times...."
  • "Long live the Empire!"
  • "Farewell, citizen."
  • "Carry on."
  • "Move along."
Rumors said by Legionnaires
  • "Emperors have been assassinated before, but this time... I don't know. It's different. Can't you feel it? A shadow has fallen across all of Tamriel."
  • "The Emperor is dead, and so are his heirs. We're a Legion without a leader. The Blades were trusted with our Lord's protection... and they failed."
  • "Truth is, the Legion doesn't know who was behind the Emperor's murder. We've already ruled out the Dark Brotherhood. So is this something... worse?"
  • "If you've got to travel, by the Nine Divines, stay on the roads! The wilderness just isn't safe anymore. We've had sightings, you see. The Daedra..."
  • "Have you heard? Adamus Phillida has been killed! Murdered by the Dark Brotherhood!"
  • "Have you not heard? The Oblivion crisis has ended! Martin Septim gave his own life to destroy the Daedra horde! We are victorious!"
  • "Thank Akatosh the Oblivion Crisis is over! Although with no Emperor and no heir, I wonder what will happen to the Empire?"
  • "It's over, citizen. The crisis has ended. But at what cost? We are an Empire without an Emperor. The future is uncertain, at best."
