The End of Order

(A Golden Saint arrives and reports)

Golden Saint Messenger

My Lord! Aurmazl Zudeh sent me to find you. She requests your immediate assistance.

Liann

What does Aurmazl Zudeh want?

Golden Saint Messenger

I don't know, My Lord. She only said it was a matter of the gravest import to the security of the Realm.

Xan's note: If Liann were the Duchess of Dementia, the leader of Palace guards is the Dark Seducer Autkendo Jansa.

Liann

(Talk to Aurmazl Zudeh)

Aurmazl Zudeh

My Lord. I'm glad to see you. We have a developing situation that requires your attention.

Liann

What is it, Aurmazl?

Aurmazl Zudeh

Order. An obelisk has activated just outside the Palace. I've ordered my Aureals to engage the enemy. I expect that this is the beginning of the final assault. The cursed usurper Jyggalag himself may even take the field before the end. What are your orders, My Lord?

Liann

I will lead the attack myself.

Aurmazl Zudeh

It will be our great honor to fight by your side, My Lord!

Liann's Journal

The Captain of my Palace Guard has informed me that an Obelisk has activated in the Palace courtyard! It seems that Order is launching its final attempt to take control of the Shivering Isles. I need to defeat Jyggylag and his minions once and for all.

Haskill

It seems that you've finally gotten Jyggalag's full attention. Cleansing the Tree seems to have convinced him that the direct approach was his only option. I would congratulate you, but perhaps that should wait until after you've prevented Order from storming the Palace.

(In the courtyard, the two great obelisks are activated. More and more knights materialized. Slay all the priests and then the knights. Suddenly a towering figure with Knight of Order armor appear and easily wipes out some Golden Saints. It's Jyggalag)

Jyggalag

You wear the trappings, but you are not the Madgod! Your staff does not make you a Daedra, foolish mortal. Another of Sheogorath's foolish schemes! This ends as it always does. Order shall reign! You hold the staff, but you are no Daedric Prince!

(Let the saints and the seducers deal with him at the moment and deactivate all the obelisks. With the obelisks deactivated, Jyggalag is weaker. Fight him, and eventually the towering figure is defeated, and...)

Enough! I am beaten. The Greymarch is ended. For millennia this drama has unfolded, and each time, I have conquered this land, only to be transformed back into that gibbering fool, Sheogorath. It was not always so. Once, I ruled this Realm, a world of perfect Order. My dominion expanded across the seas of Oblivion with each passing era. The other Princes, fearful of my power, cursed me with Madness, doomed me to live as Sheogorath, a broken soul reigning in a broken land. Once each era, I was allowed my true form, conquering this world anew. And each time I did, the curse was renewed, damning me to exist as Sheogorath. Now, though, you have ended the cycle. You now hold the mantle of madness, and Jyggalag is free to roam the voids of Oblivion once more. I will take my leave, and you will remain here, mortal. Mortal...? King? God? It seems uncertain. This Realm is yours. Perhaps you will grow to your station. Fare thee well, Sheogorath, Prince of Madness.

Liann's Journal

Jyggalag has spoken to me and told me the Greymarch is ended and the forces of Order have retreated. Haskill will likely know how I should proceed.

Haskill

You've done it! Well done, Lord Sheogorath. I never doubted you for a moment. Now, of course, there is business to attend to. As you have assumed the mantle of Sheogorath, there are matters that deserve your attention. As lord of this Realm, there are a number of benefits to which you are entitled, as well as a number of duties to which you must attend.

Liann

Ask about "Benefits"

Haskill

You may request any of the Golden Saint or Dark Seducer Escorts at the castle to accompany you. They will defend you to the death. You may also summon entertainment to your throne room. Your predecessor found this most invigorating. Speak with me if you wish entertainment. You also have the ability to affect the weather in your Realm. As it is an extension of yourself, it will often have an effect on you, as well. You also have the benefit of Sheogorath's Protection. Cast this upon yourself, and if your life is threatened, you will be returned to your castle. Many of these abilities, Lord, are rooted in the magicks of the Isles. Should you choose to leave this Realm, they will not likely function.

Liann

Ask about "Duties"

Haskill

Your first duty is to attend to the needs of your subjects. You will find that there are constant threats to the residents of the Isles. Your job is to protect them, either by dealing with the matter yourself, or sending your armies to take care of it for you.

(Ohh... duties. Take the Shegorath's Regalia and rule the isles)

The End
