Inside the tombs of Skuldafn, I discovered that Fildgor Orcthane crossed into Sovngarde. To defeat Fildgor, I must follow him there.
I can sense Jorunn's troops coming up the mountain. But they will be too late.
I am sorry, but this all falls to you. You are the only one who can reach Fildgor in time.
Hero: How did Fildgor enter Sovngarde?
Queen Nurnhilde: Fildgor opened a bridge between this world and Sovngarde. His royal blood grants him access to the hallowed halls of our ancestors, no matter what foul atrocities he has performed. Even now, he works his dark magic there, syphoning off my soul.
Hero: How do I get into Sovngarde?
Queen Nurnhilde: The Watcher at the Bridge guards the entrance. I will speak on your behalf and you shall be able to enter Sovngarde as my champion. When you reach the peak, step into the column of light. The rest is up to you.
Hero: I'll enter Sovngarde and stop Fildgor.
You beat me. I lose to my cursed brother. Again. Perhaps he is the better ruler.
Regardless, in front of my ancestors and my sister, I am undone. Do what you will with me.
Hero: You surrender?
Fildgor Orcthane: What choice do I have? Even with Sovngarde's power to aid me, I lost. The Crown of Freydis rejects me. The thorn in my side became my undoing. You've won. What will you do with me now?
Hero: It's not my place to judge. Jorunn the Skald-King will decide your fate.
Fildgor Orcthane: Jorunn, my soft, cowardly brother. How did you find someone with such strength and honor to represent you? I accept your decision. I will face Jorunn's judgment.
Hero: Very well.
Fildgor has departed this place and the spirits return to their eternal sleep. Tell me what happened here.
Hero: I spared Fildgor's life. It's up to Jorunn to decide his fate.
Queen Nurnhilde: Honorable, but perhaps misguided. You should have just killed him and been done with it. Forgive me, my detachment from life has given me a cold view of things. You should speak with Jorunn and make sure that Fildgor pays for his crimes.
Hero: And you? Will you be all right?
Queen Nurnhilde: Your concern is appreciated, but in case you have forgotten, I am dead. You have already done more for me than I ever expected. I return to Sovngarde now. I will welcome my brother when he joins me. With luck, I shall see you there one day as well.
Jorunn the Skald-King:
The Stormfists were panicked by the raging fires. We cut through their ranks as quickly as we could, but I'm afraid we were too late.
Tell me ... my sister...?
Hero: Your sister's spirit and the Crown are safe. Fildgor awaits your judgement.
Jorunn the Skald-King: I almost wish Fildgor had not survived his encounter with you. Now I must deal with my own brother. And there's only one possible punishment for treason.
Hero: [Persuade] Fildgor could prove useful to the Pact.
Jorunn the Skald-King: Such a shrewd, calculating proposal. It's not the Nord way, but the idea has merit. If we could make him work with us, think of what we could accomplish. And, I confess, it would break my heart to put my brother to death. Thank you for your counsel.
Welcome back, champion! What news do you bring from the peaks of lonely Skuldafn?
Hero: The Ebonheart Pact is sealed and Fildgor lives.
Prince Irnskar: My uncle lives? My father's mercy knows no bounds! You've been by his side and have persevered when others would have faltered. From now on, you shall be known as the High King's Arrow, for you lead the way and always strike true.
Hero: Complete Quest.
