Text of the Quest:

Tears of the Two Moons A powerful mage named went missing in the Temple of the Mourning Springs. I agreed to help his apprentice search the temple for signs of her master. We should enter the temple courtyard and see what we can find of Rurelion.

Gathwen: Please, I need your help. My master's life is in danger!
Hero: What happened?.
Gathwen: I'm part of an expedition from Eagle's Strand. While we explored the Temple of the Mourning Springs, the dead began to rise. The others fled, but my master never emerged. Rurelion taught me to know when I should ask for help. Well, I'm asking.
Hero: What do you need me to do?.
Gathwen: Two magical wards seal the temple, marked by emblems of a scorpion and a spider. If you can keep the undead away while I disrupt the wards, we can search for Rurelion together. How about it?
Hero: All right. I'll help you disrupt the wards..
Gathwen: I have no doubt Rurelion can protect himself, but if he's trapped inside we need to get him out.
Hero: Why were you in the temple?
Gathwen: My master and I had little to do after the shipwreck. When the locals mentioned a temple where the fountains never run dry, we leapt at the chance to investigate. Ealcil insisted on leading, of course.
Hero: Ealcil was studying a Mourning Stone at Eagle's Strand.
Gathwen: Ah, so you've met him. My master calls him "Eel-Kill." Something about an experiment gone wrong, many years ago. The Mourning Stone you saw came from this temple. Ealcil was barely able to remove it before the undead fell upon us.
Hero: Did you learn anything about the Mourning Stone?
Gathwen: Rurelion thought it could be used to control the weather, perhaps prevent another hurricane. Ealcil disagreed, of course. He insisted on studying it further at Eagle's Strand.

Skeleton: Turn back. You aren't welcome here.
Hero: What are you?.
Skeleton: I'm whatever I wish to be. I change bodies like High Elves change clothes, though the corpses in this temple limit my wardrobe. What does it matter to you? Why do you trespass?
Hero: We're looking for a man named Rurelion.
Skeleton: Ah, the name for my newest outfit. His flesh sags a bit, though the power in his bones reminds me of my youth. And the robes ... I'd forgotten the feel of silk upon newly won flesh.
Hero: What did you do to Rurelion?
Skeleton: Set foot in this temple and see for yourself. Such commendable posture! I could definitely wear you in the autumn. As for Rurelion ... he's fit for display under full moons or new.
Hero: Release Rurelion immediately.

Gathwen: When we entered the temple, that skeleton made it sound as though Rurelion was in grave danger. I won't let vague threats keep us from my master, but Rurelion is too important to lose. Perhaps we should think before we act.
Hero: Why is Rurelion so important?
Gathwen: The Dominion relies on Rurelion for his sound judgment. He's taught countless students the ways of magicka, including some of the Queen's own advisors. His role in the invasion is paramount for our future success. If anything were to happen to him ....
Hero: I'll do what I can to protect Rurelion.
Gathwen: Thank you. We should keep moving.

Uldor: Ears that large and you still don't listen? Perhaps you need a few alterations. There was a time when the sound of Uldor's voice commanded the terror of thousands.
Hero: Who is Uldor?.
Uldor: Why, I am. I'm Uldor! I see your "Dominion" teaches you nothing of my people. I shouldn't bemoan your ignorance. You fools ended centuries of captivity when you removed the Mourning Stone.
Hero: What is the Mourning Stone, exactly?.
Uldor: Never mind that accursed blue rock. I'm about to restore my wardrobe to its full glory. Behold this Rurelion fellow. Such vibrancy! I could use more like him, but one must be willing to run through a bolt of silk for the finest coat.
Hero: Free Rurelion, right now..
Uldor: Oh, I believe I'll keep him. At least until my summoning ritual wears him through. You see, undead are all so ... beige. But I'm willing to adorn myself with hundreds of tawdry outfits in order to collect the more colorful garb at Eagle's Strand.
Hero: I can't let you do that..
Uldor: Then drown in a sea of bones!

Rurelion: Despite all my knowledge, Uldor's influence over me was absolute. I'd be little more than a puppet without your timely intervention.
Hero: Are you hurt?.
Rurelion: Only my pride. But we have a more pressing matter. As Uldor sensed my thoughts, I could sense his. He plans to overwhelm and enslave Khenarthi's Roost with an undead horde by the next dawn!
Hero: How is that possible?.
Rurelion: Uldor was a powerful Maormer wizard who learned to separate his spirit from his body, even in death. He can "wear" hundreds of mindless forms at a time. Thankfully, I know his weakness.
Hero: What weakness?.
Rurelion: The Mourning Stone's endless water supply tied Uldor's spirit to his body. When Ealcil removed the Mourning Stone from the temple, he set Uldor free. Once again, Ealcil's sloppy methods nearly cause the death of me.
Hero: How do we restore Uldor's prison?.
Rurelion: These gems focus the Mourning Stone's power. Uldor had me remove them from his tomb. I propose Gathwen recovers the Mourning Stone from Eagle's Strand. Meanwhile, we restore Uldor's prison. Simple enough.
Hero: What does the Mourning Stone do?
Rurelion: The centerpiece of this old Khajiit temple. After Uldor's reign of terror, the Sea Elves gave it to the Khajiit so it'd become the key to his prison.
Hero: Am I in danger of being "worn?"
Rurelion: No, which is why we must be the ones to enter the tomb. After he saw you through my eyes, he seemed convinced that to "wear" you would destroy him. For some reason he feared you.
Hero: If he can't affect me, I should enter the tomb alone..
Rurelion: No, we must enter the tomb together. Though he can't "wear" you, he could quite easily obliterate you with his magic. Only by splitting his attention can we hope to defeat him.
Hero: I'm ready to face Uldor.

Gathwen: Rurelion's plan is to let Uldor possess him! They'll both be sealed in the tomb, forever. But it doesn't need to be this way. Seal me inside.
Hero: Why should you take your master's place?.
Gathwen: Rurelion is too important for the Dominion to lose. Besides, we both saw how the summoning ritual weakened my master.
Hero: I don't know about this..
Gathwen: Please, help me convince Rurelion! I will gladly seal myself in the tomb to spare my master. Uldor is a threat to all on this island.
Hero: I need to hear Rurelion's thoughts before making a decision.

Rurelion: We should hurry. Uldor won't be trapped for long.
Hero: Gathwen wants to take your place in the tomb. Goodbye.
Rurelion: That's madness. I've experienced so many summers. My greatest accomplishment was watching Gathwen blossom into someone who'll far surpass my own deeds. No, she must recover the Mourning Stone. You and I should confront Uldor.
Hero: I'll seal you in the tomb with Uldor.
Rurelion: Then we should waste no more time.
Hero: I'm ready.

Rurelion: Go, quickly. I feel Uldor's weakness fade. Hurry, tell Gathwen of the plan's success. But don't mourn for me, friend. I earned a useful fate. Few can say the same.
Hero: What will happen to you?
Rurelion: Uldor will sustain me. Better a living form than a dusty old skeleton, I suppose. I'd hoped for more time to meditate, but this wasn't what I had in mind., my friend. You're what all in the Dominion should aspire to be.
Hero: Farewell, Rurelion.

Gathwen: It’s done, isn't it? Rurelion is sealed inside with that monster.
Hero: Rurelion saved everyone on this island..
Gathwen: Forgive me. Uldor couldn't be allowed to roam free. Something had to be done, and you had the strength to see what I could not.
Hero: What will you do now?.
Gathwen: I'll ensure the Mourning Stone remains guarded at all times. I should make a full report so the Dominion understands the danger of Uldor's capabilities.
Hero: What about Rurelion?.
Gathwen: No good comes from dwelling on the past. Rurelion lives, which means there's hope. He's a great man, a good man. I don't care how long it takes. I'll find a way to free him from that monster.
Hero: Complete Quest.
