The Halls of Colossus

After the third piece is liberated, Ria Silmane visited the Champion again in their dream:

You have done well. I had thought you lost to me. The third piece of the Staff is yours. Rumors have been whispered about in the Empire. I think Tharn senses that the pieces come together. You must take care to not be discovered by him. Your death would be most unpleasant. I have divined the location of the fourth piece of the Staff. It lies in the Halls of Colossus, a structure built to honor a race of Giants, though none have been seen in the land for ages. It is said that the Halls of Colossus sat perched on a cliff overlooking the Great Divide, which is along the southern edge of Tamriel. Perhaps the Halls are near that coastline. I only wish I could offer you more. Fare thee well my friend, and find this place, for the sake of our loved ones...

The Champion headed eastwards to Elsweyr, where the people of Corinth had a clue to the Staff's location.

I heard that some priests found something just outside the city. They took whatever it was to the Mage's Guild. I'd check there for more information...

A couple of days ago some priests rode out of here in a hurry. They were chased by a small group from the Mage's Guild. If you ask there, the Magi may tell you more...

I heard that the priests of Agamanus have declared war on the Mage's Guild! It is said that their conflict arose over something the priests found which may lead to the Halls of the Colossus. I'd check the Mage's Guild for more information...

The Loremaster of Corinth's Mages Guild was helpful, asking the Champion to help with their fued with the Temple of Agamanus in exchange for the location of the Halls of Colossus.

You are [player name]. Word of your inquiries concerning the Halls of Colossus have spread through the City, and have come to my attention. I am Turamane ap' Kolthis, Loremaster of the Mage's Guild, here in Corinth. Perhaps we can help each other.

A few days ago a band of warrior-priests from the Temple of Agamanus attacked the Guild. They claimed that we had stolen from them a stone tablet that was sacred to their sacrament. In truth, we found the tablet amongst ruins far from here. But their leader, Sir Galandir, must have known the true nature of the tablet. It held the key to deciphering a part of the Elder Scrolls, the part that shows the location of the Halls of Colossus. After the attack, my Guild was left too weak to retaliate.

If you will agree to recover the stone tablet, I will inscribe the location of the Temple of Agamanus onto your map. If you are successful, I will be able to decipher the location of the Halls and tell them to you. However, to do this I need the stone tablet first. Will you agree to help me?

The Champion accepted the quest.

You are brave and fair, and I humbly thank you for your help. You will find the Temple of Agamanus near Corinth. May the Lady bless your endeavors, and may you fare well on your journey...

Turamane inscribes the location of the Temple of Agamanus, Sir Galandir's fortress, onto your map...

After defeating Sir Galandir's priests, the Champion returned to Corinth for their reward.

I see you have recovered the stone tablet, [player name]. I trust Sir Galandir and his knights did you no permanent harm? Now, for my part of the bargain. Wait a moment while I get my notes...

Turamane gets a feather pen and then peers intently at the tablet. A few moments later he inscribes the location of the Halls of Colossus, somewhere in the province of Elsweyr, onto your map...

The Champion then headed straight for the Halls of Colossus, the midway point in their quest for all eight pieces of the Staff of Chaos.

You stand before the gigantic walls of the Halls of Colossus, built by giants in an age long past. The wind echoes mournfully through the empty battlements. Here lies the fourth piece of the Staff of Chaos.

As usual Jagar Tharn showed up after the Eternal Champion acquired the piece:

It is obvious, whoever you are, that you are a cunning and worthy foe. I will not insult your intelligence with further digression. My minions soon approach, but I will not consign you to the dark door of Death. You have proven your worth. Once you are killed, I will raise you to fight for me, as one servants. Give in to me now and I offer you everlasting life...

As in the previous encounters, the Eternal Champion outwitted Tharn's minions.
