Speak to the People is one of the quests in the main questline of The Elder Scrolls III: Tribunal, after "Hunt the Dark Brotherhood." Having hunted down the leadership of the Dark Brotherhood, the Nerevarine will be asked to complete a number of quests for the Tienius Delitian of the Royal Palace.


  • Speak with Tienius Delitian.
    • Accept his request to investigate the rumors surrounding the death of King Llethan.
  • Investigate the rumors.
    • Ask the population of Mournhold about "King Llethan's Death."
  • Return to Delitian.
  • Obtain a copy of The Common Tongue.
  • Return to Delitian.


With the Dark Brotherhood no longer troubling the Nerevarine, they must now speak with Tienius Delitian in the Royal Palace. Delitian will ask that the Hero investigate the numerous rumors surrounding the former King Llethan and his death. Delitian suggests that the Nerevarine asks the people in Mournhold about the King's death, although Delitian believes that the Nerevarine will have to make the people trust them before they will speak, this can be done by raising the person's disposition towards the Hero.

Deathly RumoursEdit

Around Mournhold, the Nerevarine will find numerous people, and numerous rumors. However, raising the disposition of any one of those asked will reveal a rumor about King Helseth poisoning his predecessor. The Nerevarine will receive a journal entry after this and must return to Delitian.

The Common TongueEdit

Delitian will be grateful for the Nerevarine's recent findings, but will ask for more information. He suggests that the Nerevarine obtain a copy of The Common Tongue, a broadsheet with articles that criticize the current King. The Nerevarine will find numerous copies of the broadsheet lying around Mournhold, and simply has to return a copy to Delitian to complete the quest.
