Drin sent you to me? Priests...hmph. As it happens, there is another way you may be of service to our Lady Almalexia.

:service to our Lady:
I spoke with the Lady earlier today, and there may be something that one of your skill will be able to help with. The Lady Almalexia would like you to retrieve a powerful artifact -- Barilzar's Mazed Band.

:Barilzar's Mazed Band:
All I know is that the goddess wants it returned. You'll find it in the ruins beneath the Temple. Search to the northwest in the sewers. There was a passageway in the Abandoned Crypt that had been blocked off by a cave-in, but Almalexia had the area cleared. As for the item itself, I don't really see why you'd need to know any more about it. If you must inquire, perhaps Gavas Drin can give you more details.

Ahhh...Fedris sent you to me, did he? You would like to know more about Barilzar's Mazed Band? I suppose I can tell you something.

:Barilzar's Mazed Band:
Yes...the Mazed Band. Barilzar himself was a powerful mage...quite powerful, in fact. He created the band sometime in the middle of the Second Era, and soon after disappeared. The purpose of the artifact is unknown to me, Faern Sargtlin. All I know is that the Lady wants it. I can only assume it will allow her to better minister to her people, though I find that hard to imagine.

MOURNHOLD, ROYAL PALACE

Plitinius Mero

:Barilzar's Mazed Band:
You should not even speak of that cursed object! I'm sorry, friend Faern Sargtlin...I did not mean to snap at you. I have heard many tales of that ring, and the evil Barilzar who created it. It was to be a means of teleportation for the wizard, but it was much worse than that. That ring was said to open gates to hellish planes, releasing creatures best left in nightmare. I've heard the ring was stripped of its power, and that only a god could use it now and not be destroyed. The thought chills my bones.

Faern Sargtlin

(go to Barenziah's Chamber)

Barenziah

Good day to you. How may I help you, Faern Sargtlin?

:Barilzar's Mazed Band:
I have heard of this thing, Faern Sargtlin, but I know very little about it. I've heard whispers about it, but few details. Some say it is cursed...some say it is not. I can't understand why the goddess would want such a thing. If you want to know more, I would suggest speaking with Torasa Aram at the Museum of Artifacts. She has great knowledge of these things. Take care...some things are best left buried.

Torasa Aram

Greetings. I am Torasa Aram, Curator of the Mournhold Museum of Artifacts.

:Barilzar's Mazed Band:
The Mazed Band may actually be no more than a legend, though there is no doubt of Barilzar's existence, or his power. It has been said that the Mazed Band was able to open rifts in time and space...that it could even open the gates of Oblivion. It's been said that it would take one of divine birth to wield the ring. Some speculate that that was how Barilzar himself met his end. Of course, this is all conjecture. No one really knows what happened to the man or the Band. All of that was lost centuries ago.

(have no other choice, go to Abandoned Crypt beneath the Temple)

OLD MOURNHOLD, ABANDONED CRYPT

Barilzar

You have no place here, child of living flesh. The Mazed Band must not be allowed to leave this tomb. The Band should never have existed at all. That was my folly, and this is my curse. For all eternity, I am damned to walk in this half life, to keep my creation from destroying the hearts and minds of mortals. Those who would challenge my fate will pay with their lives.

MOURNHOLD, TEMPLE

Fedris Hler

Have you retrieved Barilzar's Mazed Band?

:Barilzar's Mazed Band:
You got the Mazed Band? Interesting.... I won't be the one to take it. Speak with the priest, Drin. He'll know what should be done.

Faern Sargtlin

(go meet Gavas Drin)

Gavas Drin

You're to retrieve Barilzar's Mazed Band, are you not?

:Barilzar's Mazed Band:
You've been able to retrieve the Mazed Band? Amazing...Almalexia will want to hear about this immediately. You are to speak with her directly. I hope you realize what an honor you're receiving, Faern Sargtlin.

Faern Sargtlin

(go meet Almalexia)

Almalexia

So you are the person I have been hearing about. I welcome you to my chapel, Faern Sargtlin...or perhaps I should call you by another name? But, that is a discussion for a later time. I understand you have done well in my service, and, indeed, a service in my name is a service for all of Mournhold. Now, my faithful and obedient servant, let us discuss Barilzar's Mazed Band.

:Barilzar's Mazed Band:
An interesting item, is it not? It seems ordinary enough, but it is much more. The ring is cold now, but the embers of its power still burn hot within. I will use my magic to reawaken this power.

Faern Sargtlin

Why did you want this ring?

Almalexia

:Barilzar's Mazed Band:
Do not concern yourself too deeply in these matters, friend Faern Sargtlin. I will use the ring as I do everything...to serve the Temple and all of Morrowind. You have been a pleasant surprise to meet. I have seen something in you that I have not seen in a very long time. I bestow the blessing of My Light upon you. May it serve you well. We will speak again soon.

:Helseth:
Helseth is the King of Morrowind. He is young, and has much to learn. Soon he will learn the strength of the Tribunal Temple, and its importance to all my people.

:Barenziah:
Yes...the mother to young King Helseth. A fascinating woman. Mortal, but fascinating.

:Fedris Hler:
Dear Fedris has been my loyal servant for a very long time. He is my Steward, and he oversees many of the day-to-day activities here at the Temple.

:Gavas Drin:
My dear Gavas has been a loyal servant of mine for many, many years. He is a shining example of the glory of the Tribunal.

:Tienius Delitian:
He's the leader of the young king's Royal Guard, I believe. An Imperial. They're all the same.

:Royal Guard:
The king's guards? I don't concern myself with them. My Hands are the most powerful warriors in all of Mournhold.

:High Ordinators:
My High Ordinators protect the city of Mournhold from any who would do it harm. They are holy warriors, blessed with great speed and strength.

:Hands of Almalexia:
The Hands of Almalexia are My personal guard, pledged to honor and protect and serve Me in all ways. Their bodies and souls are buttressed by My Divine Favor. Their armor and weapons are imbued with glory by My Touch. On the face of Tamriel, there are no more terrible warriors than My Hands of Almalexia.
