Blood of the Daedra

Enter the great hall.

Martin

I’ve deciphered part of the ritual needed to open a portal to Camoran’s Paradise. The Xarxes mentions four items needed for the ritual, but so far I have only deciphered one of them: the ‘blood of a Daedra Lord’. In fact, daedric artifacts are known to be formed from the essence of a Daedric Lord, from whence they derive their great power. Not an easy thing to come by, obviously, but we will need a daedric artifact. Bring it to me when you have acquired one.

Liann's Journal

Martin has found a section of the Mysterium Xarxes which describes a ritual which will allow him to open a portal to Camoran's Paradise, where Mankar Camoran has taken the Amulet of Kings. He has learned that four items are required for this ritual, but has only identifed one so far: 'the blood of a Daedra Lord', which he says refers to a Daedric Artifact.

Liann

Can you tell me about the Daedric artifact?

Martin

The only way to obtain a daedric artifact is through the cults devoted to each of the Daedric Lords. The book “Modern Heretics” is the best introduction to daedric cults. The library here has a copy if you need it. Remember, the Mysterium Xarxes ritual will consume the physical form of the artifact in order to release its daedric power.

Can you tell me about the Mysterium Xarxes?

Martin

I’ve learned that the Mysterium Xarxes is both the gate and the key to Camoran’s Paradise. In some sense, the book IS Camoran’s Paradise. Mankar Camoran bound himself to the Xarxes when he created his Paradise, using dark rituals which I will not speak of further. A gate can be opened from the outside, however. It will be more difficult, as I will have to temporarily bind myself to the book. But I believe it can be done. I will continue working to decipher the arcane items needed for the binding ritual.

Martin

I think I’m close to deciphering more of the ritual. I hope I’ve made some progress by the time you return with a daedric artifact.

Martin

The next section of the Mysterium Xarxes is very difficult. I haven’t deciphered the rest of the ritual yet. I hope you are making better progress.

Liann

Aquire a Daedric artifact, the Sanguine Rose.

Liann's Journal

I have a Daedric Artifact, which Martin needs for the ritual to open a portal to Camoran's Paradise. I should bring it to him at Cloud Ruler Temple.

Return to Cloud Ruler Temple.

Martin

The next section of the Mysterium Xarxes is very difficult. I haven't deciphered the rest of the ritual yet. I hope you are making better progress.

Liann

I have the Daedric artifact you wanted.

Martin

I won’t ask what you went through to obtain this, my friend. I know all too well the depravity of the princes of Oblivion. Are you ready to give me the artifact? Remember, this ritual will consume its physical form. It won’t be seen again on Tamriel for many years.

Liann

Give Sanguine Rose

Martin

I never thought to see this again. I once possessed it, briefly ... a lifetime ago, it seems now ...

Martin

I’m still working on the second item needed for the gate-opening ritual. I believe I’m close to deciphering the relevant passage.

Liann

What else can I do to help?

Martin

You should talk to Jauffre. He needs your help. Trouble down in Bruma, I think.
