Weynon Priory

Player

Martin and the player reach Weynon Priory. They notice bodies on the ground just as Eronor comes running from the sheepfold.

Eronor

Help! You must help! They're killing everyone at Weynon Priory!

Player

Hold on. Tell me what happened.

Eronor

I don't know! I think they're right behind me! Prior Maborel is dead!

Player

Who's attacking Weynon Priory?

Eronor

I was in the sheepfold when they attacked. I heard the Prior talking to someone. Looked around the corner to see who it was. They looked like travelers, ordinary. Suddenly weapons appeared in their hands and they cut the Prior down before he could move! They saw me watching and I ran.

Player

Where's Jauffre? Is he safe?

Eronor

I don't know. In the Chapel praying, I think. You must help us!

Eronor

Such violence!

The assassins catch up and Eronor runs off.

Journal

Weynon Priory is under attack! I must find and protect Jauffre, but make sure that Martin remains safe from the enemy as well.

Player

While Martin holds back, the player defeats the Mythic Dawn assassins.

Martin

I think we should find your friend Jauffre at once.

Player

Together, they head to the Chapel. Jauffre is fighting off  two assassins.

Jauffre

Your timing is excellent! I'll take the one on the right!

Player

They kill the assassins.

Jauffre

You're back. Thank Talos! They attacked without warning. I was praying in the Chapel when I heard Prior Marobel shout. I had just time to arm myself. The Amulet of Kings! I fear that was the target of this attack. I kept it in a secret room in Weynon House. We need to go see if it safe.

Journal

I found Jauffre. He believes the attackers may have taken the Amulet of Kings from its hiding place in Weynon House. I should go and see if it is still safe.

Player

I'll go check on the Amulet.

Jauffre

We'll go together. But I fear the worst.

Player

Together, they head back into the Priory House, upstairs, and into a previously hidden secret room. Jauffre checks his hiding spot, and discovers that the amulet is missing.

Jauffre

They've taken it! The Amulet of Kings is gone! The enemy has defeated us at every turn!

Player

I found Martin. He is safe.

Jauffre

So it has not all gone against us. Thank Talos for that! We gained Uriel's heir, and lost the Amulet of Kings. Martin cannot stay here. We have driven them off, but they will be back once they learn of Martin's survival. Which they will.

Player

Where will Martin be safe?

Jauffre

Nowhere is truly safe against the power arrayed against us. But we must play for time, at least...Cloud Ruler Temple, I think. The hidden fortress of the Blades, in the mountains near Bruma. A few men can hold it against an army. We should leave at once.

Player

What about the Amulet of Kings?

Jauffre

With the Amulet taken by the enemy, we must get Martin to safety at Cloud Ruler Temple.

Player

Cloud Ruler Temple?

Jauffre

Cloud Ruler Temple was built long ago, by the founders of the Blades, back in the days of Reman Cyrodiil. It is high in the mountains near Bruma...our ancient fortress, sanctuary, refuge of last resort. Martin will be as safe there as anywhere.

Journal

We agreed that we must find someplace safe to take Martin. Jauffre suggested Cloud Ruler Temple, the hidden Blades fortress near Bruma. I should escort Martin and Jauffre there immediately.

Player

What kind of assistance can you give me?

Jauffre

You may as well take Prior Maborel's horse from the stable. He won't have use for it any longer.

Player

Together, they arrive at Clouder Ruler Temple. The gates are barred, but then are opened by a single Blade.

Journal

I brought Martin and Jauffre safely to Cloud Ruler Temple.

Cyrus

Grandmaster is this...?

Jauffre

Yes, Cyrus. This is the Emperor's son, Martin Septim.

Cyrus

My lord! Welcome to Cloud Ruler Temple! We have not had the honor of an Emperor's visit in many years!

Martin

Ah, well, thank you!

Jauffre

Come. Your Blades are waiting to greet you.

Player

They walk up the stairs. The Blades stand waiting. Martin and Jauffre take their place in front of the temple.

Jauffre

Blades! Dark times are upon us. The Emperor and his sons were slain on our watch. The Empire is in chaos. But there is yet hope. Here is Martin Septim, true son of Uriel Septim!

Blades

Hail, Dragonborn! Hail, Martin Septim! Hail!

Jauffre

Your Highness. The Blades are at your command. You will be safe here until you can take up your throne.

Jauffre looks to Martin.

Martin

Jauffre. All of you. I'm not used to giving speeches. But I wanted you to know that I appreciate your welcome here. I hope I prove myself worthy of your loyalty in the coming days. That's it. Thank you.

Jauffre

Well, then. Thank you, Martin.

Jauffre sounds as if he had hoped for something more

The Blades disperse. Martin and Jauffre enter the Great Hall.

Player

The player follows them.
