"You think it's just an elaborate suicide plot? Afraid I don't share your optimism. But what is she doing in there? I'd say "only the gods know", but I don't think they do. The way I look at it, there's only one way to find out."
Keeper of the Hall[src]

After advancing through the Hall of Heroes, the Vestige meets the Keeper of the Hall in front of the Chamber of Passage. After a short conversation, the Vestige advances into the Chamber, aiming to defeat Septima Tharn.

Within the Chamber, Septima kills High King Emeric, and takes his soul to the Far Shores. A means to lure the Vestige into the afterlife to sever their ties to Coldharbour.

When the Vestige arrives in the Far Shores, Septima will taunt them, and attempt to kill them by sending armies of spirits after the Vestige. Only to be killed by the Vestige in combat.

Following the defeat of Septima, the Vestige has to collect the soul of High King Emeric, and return it to his body on Tamriel. After a short conversation with the Keeper of the Hall, the Keeper uses a spell to allow the Vestige to return to Tamriel. The Lion Guard under Queen Arzhela will be met there, mourning the dead king, until he returns.

The King will then reward the Vestige with gold and Shore's Edge, a sword in the Redguard style.
