Evidence of Conspiracy

Author: 
Xan

MOURNHOLD, ROYAL PALACE

Tienius Delitian

:evidence of conspiracy:
"The old king's Hlaalu supporters haven't accepted King Helseth's accession to the Throne with good grace. Maybe they think that another candidate -- a Hlaalu candidate, for example -- would be better. Maybe they have some plan to express such a preference. If so, I doubt they would be candid about it. But maybe you should search Llethan Manor for documents, diaries or other tangible evidence of such plans."

Faern Sargtlin

Ask about Llethan Manor defenses.

Tienius Delitian

:evidence of conspiracy:
"That is a matter for you to study. Only the widow of the dead king, Ravani Llethan, lives at Llethan Manor now. There might be guards. Perhaps you should go to offer your condolences to the widow, and have a look around."

Faern Sargtlin

"I'll take care of it."

Tienius Delitian

:evidence of conspiracy:
"Good. If you find evidence of conspiracy, bring it to me."

Faern Sargtlin

(go to Llethan Manor)

MOURNHOLD, GODSREACH

Anrel

"If you're here to offer your respects, speak to Ravani Llethan, the king's widow."

Faern Sargtlin

(meet Ravani Llethan)

Ravani Llethan

"Leave me alone with my grief."

:King Llethan's death:
"They murdered him. Helseth and his spiders. Everyone knows, and no one lifts a finger. Imperial justice! Hah! I SPIT on Imperial justice! They killed my husband, and now that wicked man is king. I curse Helseth, and all his kin! May they die tomorrow, weeping, watching their children die today!"

Faern Sargtlin

Ask how she knows Llethan was murdered.

Ravani Llethan

:King Llethan's death:
"Everyone knows. It's there in print, for everyone to see, in the broadside sheet called "The Common Tongue". It says Helseth poisoned hundreds of people when he was in the West. If Helseth was a wicked murderer before, why not now?"

Faern Sargtlin

Offer condolences.

Ravani Llethan

:King Llethan's death:
"Bless your honorable soul. Few enough have come to pay their respects. People forget their friends when the wind changes."

Faern Sargtlin

(search the room and find "handwritten letter")
(go back to Tienius Delitian)

Tienius Delitian

:evidence of conspiracy:
"This letter you've found is very interesting. Forven Berano, Hloggar the Bloody, and Bedal Alen are obviously conspiring to assassinate King Helseth. This is treason, punishable by death. I will immediately draw up writs for their execution. You would do the king a great service if you would execute these traitors."

Faern Sargtlin

"I'll take care of it."

Tienius Delitian

:evidence of conspiracy:
"Excellent. When you've executed the traitors, report back to me."

Faern Sargtlin

(retrieve "Royal Writ of Execution for Forven Berano", "Royal Writ of Execution for Hloggar the Bloody" and "Royal Writ of Execution for Bedal Alen")
(talk with Royal Guard)

Royal Guard

"Happy to help. What's your problem?"

:Bedal Alen:
"He's a bookworm. Try a bookseller. That's where I'd look."

:Forven Berano:
"I'd look up by the Temple."

:Hloggar the Bloody:
"The Nord? The big, mean one? A Hlaalu retainer, I think. Isn't he the one who was living rough down in the West Sewers?"

Faern Sargtlin

(go to Temple Courtyard)

MOURNHOLD, TEMPLE

Forven Berano

"I am Forven Berano. But I don't see how that matters to you."

:evidence of conspiracy:
"I don't know what you're talking about. This is obviously some mistake...."

Faern Sargtlin

Warn Forven Berano, and let him escape.

Forven Berano

:evidence of conspiracy:
"Oh, gods, THANK you! Blessings of the Nine, and Almsivi, and anything else you like! Thank gods I have a Mark set. I'll be gone instantly -- and I assure you, I will never betray your mercy."

Faern Sargtlin

(go to Old Mournhold, West Sewer)

OLD MOURNHOLD, WEST SEWER

Hloggar the Bloody

"What do you want?"

:evidence of conspiracy:
"Yeah? Well, what are you going to do about it?"

Faern Sargtlin

Warn Hloggar the Bloody, and let him escape.

Hloggar the Bloody

:evidence of conspiracy:
"I don't get it. Don't you want to fight? Oh! Wait! I see. You are a GOOD guy! Sure. I understand. So now I got to get lost. Fast, right? Okay. Time to use that old Recall amulet. So long, pal... and thanks."

Faern Sargtlin

(go to Great Bazaar)

MOURNHOLD, GREAT BAZAAR

Faern Sargtlin

(enter the Mournhold Bookseller)

Bedal Alen

"But... I don't understand. Is something the matter?"

:evidence of conspiracy:
"Oh, dear. I KNEW this would happen. Please, have mercy on me!"

Faern Sargtlin

Warn Bedal Alen, and let him escape.

Bedal Alen

"You have shown yourself an honorable Dunmer. I thank you. I will absent myself from Mournhold immediately. And I would die before I'd betray your generosity to me. And now, if you'll excuse me, I believe an Almsivi Intervention will swiftly deliver me out of peril."

Faern Sargtlin

(go back to Tienius Delitian)

MOURNHOLD, ROYAL PALACE

Tienius Delitian

:evidence of conspiracy:
"Forven Berano, Hloggar the Bloody, and Bedal Alen have escaped? All three? There must be a leak here at the Palace. Well, you've done the best you could. You have my thanks, and I'll tell King Helseth that you tried. And now I'd like your help finding the anonymous writer of 'The Common Tongue'."
