DialogueEdit

"Please leave. These are my private quarters."

Show: Hortator and Nerevarine

"Thank you for coming, Nerevarine (Player name). You know the Temple's doctrine on the Nerevarine. Perhaps it is time to change that doctrine."

Temple's doctrine "The Temple must protect the people from false doctrines. And your association with Imperial intelligence makes your motivations and integrity suspect. But you have been chosen Hortator and Nerevarine by the Dunmer people. And we have reached a crisis with Dagoth Ur. We can no longer defend the people against the awakened Sixth House. You and your prophecies may represent our last hope. Our situation is desperate. But I would rather have you hear the details of our situation, and the circumstances leading up to that situation, from Lord Vivec himself. He has asked to see you. Would you agree to a private meeting with him, and hear in person what he has to say?"
Yes, I will meet with Vivec "Good. Here are two keys: one to the private back entrance to my quarters, the other to a locked entrance to Lord Vivec's palace. I regret that, at present, the Ordinators are not completely under my control, so, for now, I'll ask you to avoid confrontations with them. Lord Vivec is expecting you. His Lordship is remarkably patient, but perhaps it would be better not to keep him waiting."
Temple's doctrine "Lord Vivec is expecting you. His Lordship is remarkably patient, but perhaps it would be better not to keep him waiting."
No, I don't trust you "I'm sorry. I understand. Then we have nothing further to discuss at this time. I will not apologize for the Temple's actions against you, or against the Dissident Priests. But I do believe it is time for such hostilities to stop. I regret that, at present, the Ordinators are not completely under my control, so I cannot guarantee that you will not be harmed. But if you change your mind, and are willing to meet with Vivec, please return to me at any time."
Dwemer "Saint Nerevar and the Tribunal defeated the Dwemer in holy war, and banished them from the face of the world for their blasphemies."

If approached again:

"We're here to discuss the Temple's doctrine on the Nerevarine, Nerevarine (Player name)."

Show: Control the Ordinators

"Faith conquers all, Nerevarine. Bless your breath and blood."

control the Ordinators "I understand your concerns, but the Ordinators are a necessity. Especially in these troubling times."
troubling times "There is the Blight and the return of Dagoth Ur. There are troubles with the Empire and troubles between the Great Houses. The Temple needs protection in these times, and the Ordinators provide that, even though the Ordinators have failed on occasion."
Ordinators have failed "It is rare, but recently... Perhaps you could help with one of these failures. There is a cavern, Assemanu, known to those who follow Dagoth Ur. In this cavern is the Robe of St. Roris, a holy relic. If you can succeed where the Ordinators failed by bringing me the Robe, I will speak with Berel Sala."
Assemanu "To get to Assemanu, take the southern road towards Seyda Neen. After you cross the bridge, you will see swamplands to the south. Go across the swamps and look for an island to the south. Assemanu is on that island."
Ordinators
"The Order of the Inquisition identifies and suppresses heresy among priests and laymen."
"The Order of the Watch provides guards for temples and shrines."
Great Houses
"The Yellow Party of Hlaalu honors and serves Fortune, Trade, and the Empire, and through such distractions they stray away from the narrow paths of duty, gravity, and piety."
"The Brown Party of Telvanni honors great tradition of arcane mastery of our race, and deserve our respect, but they are careless in observance of Temple teaching, and scornful of discipline, doctrine and obedience."
"The Red Part of Redoran preserves the ancient martial traditions of our ancestors, and deserve our thankful respect."

After obtaining the robe:

"Faith conquers all, Nerevarine. Bless your breath and blood."

control the Ordinators "You have the Robe of St. Roris the martyr. It is the robe he wore when he was slain and was thus blessed with his blood. Will you hand over the robe now?"
Yes, here it is.
control the Ordinators "You have brought me the Robe of St Roris. For this I will speak with Berel Sala, and I will not let him influence Temple policy as much as in the past."
Ordinators have failed "You have succeeded where the Ordinators have failed. I will listen to your words and do what I can to control the Ordinators."
troubling times "There are many troubles in these times, but with the return of the Robe of St. Roris I have renewed faith in the Tribunal. I believe the troubles between the Temple and House Hlaalu are a test of our patience and piety. I will make sure the Ordinators will not fail this test."
No. "If you want my aid, you must give me the robe."
Show: Malacath of the House of Troubles

"Are you here to request an audience, Master?"

duties "I am old and will soon retire. You are one of the most promising Masters. If you want to replace me as Archcanon of the Temple, you must complete the Pilgrimage of the Four Corners."
Four Corners "The First Corner of the House of Troubles is Malacath, the Daedric patron of the Orcs who tests the Dunmer for weakness. There is a shrine to Malacath on Sheogorad, southwest of Dagon Fel. Head south past the Dwemer ruin and take the second road to the west. Look for the shrine to the north. Take four Daedra hearts to the shrine. When you donate the hearts at the shrine, recite Vivec's "Four Corners of the House of Troubles.""
Show: Mehrunes Dagon of the House of Troubles

"Have you completed the Pilgrimages of the Four Corners?"

Four Corners "The Second Corner of the House of Troubles is Mehrunes Dagon, the Daedra of Destruction who represents the trials the Dunmer face in the lands of Morrowind. At Ald Sotha, the daedric ruins northeast of Vivec City, Vivec rescued Sotha Sil, the only survivor of the minor House Sotha, from the armies of Mehrunes Dagon. Fight your way to the statue of Mehrunes Dagon and recite Vivec's "Four Corners of the House of Troubles.""
Show: Molag Bal of the House of Troubles

"Have you completed the Pilgrimages of the Four Corners?"

Four Corners "The Third Corner of the House of Troubles is Molag Bal, who tries to destroy the Dunmer by corrupting our bloodlines. Bal Ur is known as the Birthplace of Molag Bal where the Doom Drum tricked Molag Bal into becoming mortal. Vivec defeated Molag Bal here and sent him back into Oblivion. Bal Ur is just north of Suran, but to get there easily, you will need a way to levitate over the mountains."
Show: Sheogorath of the House of Troubles

"Have you completed the Pilgrimages of the Four Corners?"

Four Corners "The Fourth Corner of the House of Troubles is Sheogorath, the Mad Star, who threatens the Dunmer with madness. It is time to renew a pact Vivec made with Sheogorath long ago. To do so, you must find the Gambolpuddy."
Gambolpuddy "Yes, I know it is a strange name, but all Sheogorath's creations have the touch of madness. Find the Gambolpuddy in Ald Daedroth and donate it to Sheogorath's statue there while reciting Vivec's "Four Corners." This will renew the pact and prevent Sheogorath from tormenting us with madness. Ald Daedroth is on one of the islands between Sheogorad and Azura's Coast. I will mark this place on your map."

After completion of the quest:

"Have you completed the Pilgrimages of the Four Corners?"

Four Corners "You have finished the Pilgrimage of the Four Corners of the House of Troubles. I may have more duties for you."
Gambolpuddy "Yes, you found it and returned it to Sheogorath. The pact has been renewed."
Show: Ebony Mail

"Are you here to request an audience, Master?"

duties "You have completed the Pilgrimage of the Four Corners. Now you should know the enemies of the Temple. I ask only one more thing. You must recover the Ebony Mail."
Ebony Mail "The Ebony Mail may be found on Mount Assarnibibi, which is north of Molag Mar. Mount Assarnibibi is where Molag Bal oversaw the 99 lovers of Boethiah that gave birth to Almalexia. Go there and pray before the shrine. If you are worthy, you will receive the Ebony Mail. Return it to me and I will make you Patriarch of the Temple."
Ebony Mail "Have you found the Ebony Mail, Nerevarine (Player name)?"
Yes, here it is. "So you found it? Where is it? I don't see it..."
No, not yet. "Perhaps you are not devoted enough to be the Patriarch of the Temple."

After obtaining the Ebony Mail:

"Are you here to request an audience, Master?"

duties "You are the Archcanon now, Nerevarine (Player name). I wil lretire from the politics of the Temple and devote the rest of my life to writing."
