Text of the Quest:

March of the Ra Gada The spirits of HoonDings Watch have awoken to test me. I must vanquish the spirits of the Redguards ancient foes and claim their essence to summon their leaders. Farvad tells me that great wisdom can be gleaned from slaying the spirits of the Redguards ancient foes in HoonDings Watch. I should travel to the first tier of the monument, slay the Nedic ghosts, and collect their essence.


Collect Nedic Ghost Essence

Throne Keeper Farvad: It is good to see you again, my friend! Now I understand why Tu'whacca bid me to come here to HoonDing's Watch. If you are to save the Alik'r desert from the Withered Hand, there are things you must learn from the spirits of this place.
Hero: There are spirits here?
Throne Keeper Farvad: Yes. Many of them. And pilgrims come from all over Hammerfell to honor them—the heroes of our greatest wars. It is usually a quiet affair, but when one such as you arrives, spirits of friend and foe alike awaken to create a portrait of the past.
Hero: What do they want?
Throne Keeper Farvad: To teach you. If you are to be champion of the Alik'r, you must understand the spirit of this desert and its people. Tu'whacca says you must walk in the steps of our heroes, battle the spirits of the enemies they faced. Then you will understand.
Hero: Fair enough. I will fight these spirits.
Throne Keeper Farvad: First, you will face the Nedic Peoples. When the Ra Gada first crashed on these shores, the Nedes were first to challenge them. Fight the Nedic soldiers' spirits. Claim their essences, and use them to summon and face their leader, Warchief Haakon.
Hero: Who were the Ra Gada?
Throne Keeper Farvad: That was the name of our Yokudan ancestors during the exodus from our ancient homeland. After Yokuda sank beneath the waves, they sailed here in search of a new home. Their coming was not peaceful. You see, the term Ra Gada means "warrior wave."
Hero: Who were the Nedic Peoples?
Throne Keeper Farvad: The Nedic peoples were the ancient ancestors of our human kin here in Tamriel. Those who dwelled on the isle of Herne had long struggled to resist the Elves prior to the Ra Gada's arrival. Upon seeing the Yokudan sails, they took up the sword again.
Hero: I take it they lost?
Throne Keeper Farvad: They struggled mightily. We honor their bravery. But no, they fell before the Yokudan onslaught like all the others.
Hero: Are the priests returning to Tu'whacca's throne?
Throne Keeper Farvad: Yes, my friend, albeit slowly. Not all heed Tu'whacca's words as I do. When the Withered Hand is no more, we will have much to do. All the corpses to be cleaned and dressed ... Zeht's tears, we will need more Throne Keepers. Of that I am certain.

Throne Keeper Farvad: In our fight against the Nedes, we saw the raw power of defiance. We came to respect Tamriel and its warriors. You must now battle the giant goblinkin. The Ra Gada's long road to conquest was paved with thousands of these beasts' corpses.
Hero: I've never heard of giant goblins.
Throne Keeper Farvad: Such things are difficult to imagine, yes. In those times goblins were mighty beasts, and their cruelty was not tempered by cowardice as it is now. Their filthy strongholds littered the sands of Hammerfell like a pox when the Ra Gada arrived.
Hero: That sounds horrible.
Throne Keeper Farvad: Horrible indeed! Our Yokudan ancestors could not tolerate such a blight on their new homeland. They would suffer no rivals. And so one of their mightiest heroes, Frandar Hunding, rallied the swords of the Ra Gada to slay the beasts.
Hero: What happened to him?
Throne Keeper Farvad: Ah -Tu'whacca claimed him during one of the bloodiest battles of the campaign. But his son Divad, filled with wrath over the slaying of his father, soon rose to take command of the Ra Gada. He swore to avenge his father - no matter the cost.
Hero: Was he successful?
Throne Keeper Farvad: The Song of Divad tells us that he and his band of Sword Singers worked their sacred forges and consulted eldritch tomes for many long years to create five great swords. With these blessed blades, the Ra Gada forever vanquished the giant goblins.
Hero: What is my task?
Throne Keeper Farvad: Well, Tu'whacca tells me that you must do battle with the spirits of the long-dead giant goblinkin. To what end? I do not know. But only fools doubt Tu'whacca's wisdom.

Throne Keeper Farvad: Ironically, it was in our fight against the hideous goblins that we came to love the desert and its simple beauty. Now you must face the proud Ore warriors of ancient Orsinium. The fight for the Ore city proved to be one of our greatest trials.
Hero: Tell me of Orsinium.
Throne Keeper Farvad: It is the heart of Orcdom in Tamriel, settled at the foot of the Wrothgarian Mountains. It is a city of simple things—towering and cold. It has been razed and rebuilt countless times. The Ores are a tenacious people.
Hero: I take it that the Yokudans were one of the conquerors?
Throne Keeper Farvad: "Conquerors" is a strong word, but yes, of course they were. Ha! Our ancestors and the Bretons' laid siege to the city for thirty years before finally breaching the walls and razing the city. The Ores proved to be fearsome adversaries.
Hero: What is my task? Keeper Farvad
Throne Keeper Farvad: You must face the ancient Orcish spectres in battle, and then summon and defeat their leader, General Theshaga. Tu'whacca says there is great wisdom to be gleaned from this.

Throne Keeper Farvad: The swords of Yokuda were not often sheathed. Our long siege of Orsinium taught us the value of patience. Now you must face the forces of the Breton King Joile—a treacherous asp whose lust for power led to broken alliances and countless sorrows.
Hero: Who was King Joile?
Throne Keeper Farvad: He was the King of Daggerfall during the Siege of Orsinium. The embers of the Orcish hold had not even cooled before he took up arms against our ancestors—his former allies. He was slain by a heroic Sword Singer at the Battle of Bangkorai Pass.
Hero: What is my task?
Throne Keeper Farvad: You must slay the perfidious spirits of King Joile's Breton army—then King Joile himself, I suspect. Tu'whacca shall be watching.

Throne Keeper Farvad: Joile's betrayal taught us yet another virtue: caution—wariness. We remain slow to trust, but loyal beyond measure. You have reached the summit! The Make-Way God, sees much at this height. Have you learned the greatest lesson of this place?
Hero: Maybe. What is the lesson?
Throne Keeper Farvad: The greatest lesson of HoonDing's Watch is this: wars are fleeting, but honor is eternal. The dunes of time are ever shifting. Kings rise and fall, cities are razed and rebuilt, alliances are forged and broken. But honor, glory ... legend remains.
Hero: Complete Quest.
