:Orders:
"And these are Sharn's notes on the Nerevarine cult? Excellent. I'm promoting you to Blades Apprentice, Faern Sargtlin. Now give me some time to think how this fits in with the Emperor's plans for you. And I'd like to see you at a higher level of conditioning before I send you out again. So take some time to polish your skills and enhance your cover story with a little freelance adventuring. Then, when you're at the level of performance I want to see, I'll have new orders ready for you."

"I'm not ready for you yet. And you're not at the level of performance I'm looking for yet. So, as I said, take some time to polish your skills and flesh out your cover story with a little freelance adventuring. Then, when you've gotten some exercise and loot, come back, and I'll have some new orders for you."

:Blades Apprentice:
"I'm promoting you to Apprentice Rank, effective immediately. And here's a little present -- two spell scrolls. The Divine Intervention will recall you to the nearest Imperial shrine, and the Almsivi Intervention will recall you the nearest Temple. They come in handy for a quick getaway. No, no, Faern Sargtlin. No thanks needed. You're doing great work. Now, get out of here and let me read."

:Orders:
"I've thought it over, and I want you to interview three informants in Vivec City concerning the Nerevarine and the Sixth House. First, I want you to speak with Addhiranirr, a Khajiit Thieves Guild operative. Second, I want you to speak with Huleeya, an Argonian in the Morag Tong. Finally, I want you to speak with Mehra Milo, a Temple priestess. Here. I've written the details down, so you won't forget. And here are 200 drakes. For bribes and other expenses."

Caius Cosades

:Addhiranirr:
"Addhiranirr is a Khajiit, and a Thieves Guild operative. You'll find her in St. Olms Canton in Vivec. Be careful what you say, and use common sense. People in the cantons are suspicious of outsiders; you may have to win... or purchase... their confidence."

:Thieves Guild:
"In the rest of the Empire, the Thieves Guild is a more-or-less organized group of local criminal syndicates governing illegal trade in their communities. Here in Morrowind, the Thieves Guild is the newcomer. The established local crime lords are called the Camonna Tong. The Thieves Guild doesn't advertise, partly because to avoid the law, and partly to avoid the Camonna Tong, who have sworn to destroy the upstart Thieves Guild. Sugar Lips Habasi over at the South Wall is the local Guild Boss."

:Huleeya:
"Huleeya is an Argonian and a Morag Tong assassin. You'll find him in Vivec, at the Black Shalk Cornerclub in the Lower Waistworks of the Foreign Quarter. In addition to his other skills, Huleeya is also known around Vivec City as a student of history and a lover of books and old things."

:Morag Tong:
"The Morag Tong is a guild of executioners and assassins, completely legal, and guided by a strict code of conduct. It's an ancient Dunmer society, steeped in tradition, but I know and respect a few Westerners who belong to the Morag Tong. They are nothing like the Dark Brotherhood. I have no idea how to join them."

:Mehra Milo:
"Mehra Milo is a Temple priestess who works in the libraries at the Hall of Wisdom and Justice. She's a friend, so be careful, and don't get her in trouble. The Temple is suspicious of outlanders, and wouldn't be happy to find Mehra talking with you about religious matter. She'll be easy to spot. Look for the priestess with the copper hair and copper eyes."

:Temple:
"The Tribunal Temple is the native religion. They worship three God-Kings, Almalexia, Sotha Sil, and Vivec, who are known together as the Tribunal. We usually just call it 'The Temple.' They're narrow-minded and superstitious, but I find a lot to admire -- particularly their concern for the poor. They accept outlanders as members, but few outlanders join except for the services. Talk to Feldrelo Sadri at the Balmora Temple if you're thinking about joining."

:Vivec:
"Vivec City, named for Vivec, a living god of Morrowind, is the largest settlement on Vvardenfell, and one of the largest cities in the East. Take the silt strider from Balmora to Vivec; it's fast, cheap, and safe. Or, if you're feeling adventurous, walk the road south from Balmora, past Pelagiad, through the Ascadian Isles to Vivec. Be careful. It's easy to lose the road or blunder into beasts when traveling by night or in bad weather. Travel by day to avoid getting lost. Or killed."

"This is the silt strider port for the city of Vivec, outlander. I'm a caravaner, and I manage the silt strider port here. Tell me your destination, if you're looking for a ride. Or if you're new to Vivec, I can help you with local services, or any specific place in Vivec you're looking for. Or if you want someone in particular, maybe I know where to look."

:Vivec:
"Vivec is a city made up of nine cantons, each a little town in itself. Each Great House has its own canton, and outlanders have their own canton called the Foreign Quarter. The Arena is for public entertainments like mock battles and comic plays. Commoners and paupers live in St. Delyn and St. Olms Cantons. But most of all, this is Lord Vivec's holy city. The Ministry of Truth, the Temple prison, hangs above the great temple of the High Fane, the Halls of Wisdom and Justice, and Lord Vivec's Palace."

:cantons:
"Vivec's cantons are buildings with many levels. The upperworks are the rooftops with shops and rich folks' manors. The waistworks are the next tier down, usually shops and guilds, with some apartments. Canalside is the lowest level, where poor folks live. The underworks are sewers below canalside; only grubbers and cleaners go down there. The corridors are like mazes, so watch how you go. The Temple built all the cantons, and leases them to shops, guilds, and residents."

:Foreign Quarter:
"The Foreign Quarter is the large three-tiered canton to the north. Originally, foreigners were not allowed to enter Vivec any further than the Foreign Quarter, but now outlanders can travel throughout Vivec at will. The Imperial Guilds each have guildhalls and complete services here, and an Imperial cult shrine serves the spiritual needs of the Imperial faithful. Various independent tradesmen, craftsmen, and trainers also rent space here. The Black Shalk Cornerclub rents beds to non-guild visitors."

:Arena:
"The Arena Compound lies between the Redoran compound on the west and the Telvanni compound on the east. The Arena is the site of public entertainments and combat sports. The comfortable domed Arena has seating for hundreds of spectators; beneath the Arena are dressing and storage rooms for entertainers and training rooms and animal pens for the combat competitors."

:St. Delyn Canton: - :St. Olms Canton:
"St. Delyn Canton and St. Olms Canton are residence cantons for commoners and paupers. The Temple charges very reasonable rents for comfortable workshops, shops, and apartments, and most of Vvardenfell's crafts and light industry is housed in these cantons. The Abbey of St. Delyn the Wise is on the top tier of St. Delyn, and Hlaalu Councilor Yngling Half-Troll has a top-tier manor on St. Olms."

:Ministry of Truth:
"The Ministry of Truth is a celestial body suspended by Vivec's mighty power over the Great Temple of the High Fane in Vivec City. The Ministry of Truth was hollowed out to provide a prison and re-education center operated by the Temple Ordinators for the correction of heretics."

:High Fane:
"The High Fane is the largest Tribunal temple on Vvardenfell. Archcanon Saryoni presides over the temple, along with a large staff of priests, healers, and monks. Pilgrims travel from all over Morrowind to view the High Fane and the Ministry of Truth, and to offer prayer and thanks before the Palace of Vivec."

:Hall of Justice:
"The Hall of Justice houses the four orders of the Temple Ordinators: the Order of the Watch, the Order of War, the Order of Doctrine and Ordination, and the Order of the Inquisition."

:Hall of Wisdom:
"The Hall of Wisdom houses scholars, monks, and priests who study and shape the doctrines of the Temple. The Hall of Wisdom is in the Temple Canton of Vivec."

:Hall of Justice: - :Hall of Wisdom:
"The Hall of Wisdom and Hall of Justice contain the executive, administrative, judicial, and martial operations of the Tribunal Temple. They're in the Temple Canton of Vivec."

:Palace of Vivec:
"The Palace of Vivec is the abode of the mortal form of the god-hero Lord Vivec, the Warrior-Poet of the three deities who comprise Almsivi, the divine patrons of the Tribunal Temple. Only the most devout are admitted to the presence of Lord Vivec, and only at his initiation. Beneath the Palace of Vivec is the Puzzle Canal, a place of worship and testing for questing heroes hoping to receive Vivec's favor. Many choice treasures are guarded by Daedric servants in the Puzzle Canal's dark passages."

:Hlaalu Compound:
"Hlaalu Compound is the westmost canton. Councilor Crassius Curio has a splendid tier-top mansion here. The tiers below contain Hlaalu treasuries, records, holding cells, and various services. There are two public houses: the Elven Nations and the No Name Club. A variety of craftsmen and tradesmen also have shops at Hlaalu Compound. Some House Hlaalu nobles maintain residences in the less-formal St. Delyn and St. Olms cantons. Councilor Velanda Omani's manor is east of the city on Elmas Island."

:Redoran Compound:
"Redoran Compound is the canton south of the Foreign Quarter, west of and next to the Arena. The Redoran administrative center there includes the Redoran Treasury, Hall of Records, and Holding Cells. On the lowest tier is a Redoran shrine and ancestral vaults. Two noble families, the Sarens and the Dralors, have top-tier manors. There are many tradesmen, craftsmen, and trainers, and the Flowers of Gold cornerclub provides lodgings for Redoran kin and retainers."

:Telvanni Compound:
"Telvanni Compound is the eastmost canton. The mage-lord Mavon Drenim is the ranking Telvanni noble. The Telvanni rent the compound from the Temple, and have to make do with a Velothi tower instead of their preferred mushroom towers. The administrative center includes a treasury and a hall of records. Slaves are housed in the lowest tiers. There are many tradesmen, craftsmen, and trainers, and the Lizard's Head cornerclub provides lodgings for Telvanni kin and mercenaries."

Huleeya

"I'm sorry, but I cannot speak with you. I am preoccupied with my own affairs."

"Yes, Faern Sargtlin. I simply wish to go to my friend's bookstore, but these troublesome fools are trying to threaten me. They hate my race, and I think they are spoiling for a fight. Perhaps you can speak with them, and persuade them to leave us alone. I warn you... say the wrong thing, and they may attack us both."

:troublesome fools:
"The sight of a free Argonian offends these racist thugs. It would tarnish my Morag Tong honor to slay them, and I don't want to trouble my friend Saralis Golmis by fighting in his club. But I must go to my friend's bookstore, where we can talk in peace. If you have a way with words, perhaps you can talk to them. Or if you have a way with money, they might be bought. Otherwise, I fear there must be bloodshed."

Faern Sargtlin

(talk to Ethys Savil, Favel Gobor and Urven Davor, convince them not to attack)

Huleeya

"Yes, Faern Sargtlin. We travel together to Jobasha's Rare Books. When we arrive at my friend's bookstore, I will answer your questions there."

:Jobasha's Rare Books:
"Jobasha's Rare Books is a bookshop with a wide selection of rare and obscure books. My friend, Jobasha, a Khajiit, is the owner. The shop is here in Vivec's Foreign Quarter, in the Lower Waistworks, on the same level as the Black Shalk Cornerclub, but down at the end of the west corridor."

Faern Sargtlin

(go with Huleeya to Jobasha's Rare Books)

Huleeya

"Yes, thank you very much. We should be free from distraction here. Now, I said I'd tell you about the Nerevarine cult so you can report back to Caius. And I don't know of any Sixth House cult, but I can tell you what I do know."

:Huleeya:
"I am in the service of the Morag Tong, a modest Thrall in rank, and by vocation and training an agent and executioner. In my private life, I am a student of history. There is little else to tell."

:Jobasha:
"Jobasha is a friend of mine, a Khajiit. He owns Jobasha's Rare Books, which has a wide selection of rare and obscure books. He has very passionate moral and political views, which he shares freely. As a result, he and his bookshop arouse strong feelings in some quarters."

:Argonians:
"We are counted among the First Peoples. Our homeland is Argonia, or Black Marsh, in Imperial speech. I am a poor example. My parents were bound in slavery, and I have lived in Morrowind all my life. Like other Argonians who have accepted Imperial ways, I am much like any other Imperial citizen. But to be honest, we have always been a private, even secretive people, and I am not comfortable speaking in this manner. You might do better to look in books, if you are curious."

:slavery:
"I am an Imperial citizen, and I believe slavery should be outlawed, as it is elsewhere in Tamriel. Many of Tamriel's people once practiced slavery, but have now rejected it as cruel and immoral. I hope that in my lifetime, slavery might be outlawed in Morrowind, but the Armistice confirmed slavery as lawful, and the Great Houses strongly resist any diminishment of the rights guaranteed by that ancient agreement between the Empire and the Dunmer."

:Morag Tong:
"I am only a low-ranking member. But pauper and commoner do not suffer from war here as they do in the West, thanks to the honored traditions of House War and the Morag Tong. I am an Argonian, yet they treat me with respect. If you are curious, find a copy of "The Black Glove." But please... do not mistake us for the Dark Brotherhood! The Dark Brotherhood is a perversion of ancient Dunmer traditions. They have sold their honor for profit, and are no more than a league of murderers-for-hire."

:Dark Brotherhood:
"The Dark Brotherhood is a depraved perversion of the ancient law-abiding order of the Morag Tong. They do not advertise their services or their creed, but they are an outlawed secret society of assassins with an evil reputation, and are often associated with Daedra worship. The Morag Tong is the sworn enemy of the Dark Brotherhood."

:Nerevarine:
"When the Ashlanders joined Nerevar in the Battle of Red Mountain, he swore on his great Ring, One-Clan-Under-Moon-and-Star, to honor the ways of the Spirits and rights of the Land. But after the victory, Ashlanders say the power-hungry Tribunal slew Nerevar in secret. Then, setting themselves up as gods, the Tribunal and the Great Houses forgot Nerevar's promises to the Tribes. Ashlanders say Nerevar will come again with his ring, cast down the false gods, and make good his promises to the Tribes."

:Nerevarine cult:
"To understand the Nerevarine cult, you must understand the history of the Ashlanders. Nerevar means something very different to the Ashlanders from what he means to Dunmer of the Great Houses. You should also know about the persecution of the Nerevarine, and the legacy of the False Incarnate, for the Nerevarine cult is at the heart of the ancient conflict between the nomadic Ashlanders and the settled Great House Dunmer. Here is a summary for Caius, but ask your questions, and I'll answer in detail."

(retrieve "Notes from Huleeya")

Huleeya

:history of the Ashlanders:
"In the First Era, the nomadic Ashlanders and the settled Dunmer clans were much alike, but after the First Council and the formation of the Great Houses, Ashlanders have been steadily forced into the poorest and most hostile lands. Now the nomadic tribes look to the prophesied return of Nerevar for a restoration of their ancient rights and religious traditions."

:persecution of the Nerevarine:
"The Temple treats the Nerevarine prophecies as heresy, and the Temple imprisons and executes heretics, unless prevented by Imperial law. But, since the Nerevarine cult is hostile to the Empire, the Empire does not interfere when Temple persecutes the cult. Ashlanders hate the Temple, and particularly the Ordinators, for their ruthless treatment of Nerevarine cultists."

:Sixth House cult:
"I've never heard of such a thing. House Dagoth was the Sixth House, but in the War of the First Council, they betrayed the other Great Houses, and were destroyed for their treason. But I've never heard of anyone worshipping them. Dagoth Ur, the ancient head of House Dagoth, is the Devil of the Tribunal faith, but I've never heard of anyone worshipping him, either."
