Text of the Quest:

The Dream of the Hist asked me to retreive from , the architect of the Dominion invasion in Shadowfen. Now that I've unsealed the door protecting Ruuvitar, I can put an end to his heinous acts.


Kill Ruuvitar


Vicecanon Heita-Meen: I must be sentimental in my old age. All this death weighs upon me like a second set of scales, yet there is more of it ahead. Are you ready to show Ruuvitar he cannot break the Pact?
Hero:I'm ready.
Vicecanon Heita-Meen: If you have the chance to capture him, we could put him on trial in Stormhold. Make him answer for all he's done. But I'm happy to fit his head for a pike. As I believe Vicecanon Hrondar would say, "stab the Elf in his crumpets."
Hero:I'll stop Ruuvitar.
Vicecanon Heita-Meen: I'm almost afraid to touch the Mnemic Egg.
Hero:Are we too late?
Vicecanon Heita-Meen: You can't hear the noise? Piercing, like fleshflies roosting in your ears? And the smell, like ... moss and alit hide, set aflame. But we must remove it from these ruins, before the Dominion returns.

Gerent Nuleem-Malem: What happened to the vicecanon?
Hero: She said Mnemic Egg was in great pain
Gerent Nuleem-Malem: No doubt Ruuvitar's doing. May his corpse dry to a husk! We must wake the vicecanon before the Mnemic Egg tears her mind apart!
Hero: Goodbye.

Vicecanon Heita-Meen: Wondrous. You touched the Mnemic Egg, yes? Then our minds join within the Hist itself.
Hero: How do we escape?
Vicecanon Heita-Meen: Hmm? Oh, I'm more concerned with the state of the Hist than our safety. Don't you see? If we heal the damage to the Hist from within, perhaps the Mnemic Egg will recover from Ruuvitar's blasphemies.
Hero: How can we heal the Mnemic Egg?
Vicecanon Heita-Meen: I suspect we find and remove whatever afflicts the Hist. I'm embarrassed to say I have no idea how. Before your arrival, I found myself wracked with pain. Now, all is calm. The Hist's subtle way of indicating you should lead, yes?
Hero: What are those plumes?
Vicecanon Heita-Meen: They don't appear to be part of the Hist. Perhaps a vestige of Ruuvitar's experiments? If so, we should remove them, yes?
Hero: Any thoughts? Is there some kind of trick to it?
Vicecanon Heita-Meen: Hmm? Oh, I'm more concerned with the state of the Hist than our safety. Don't you see? If we heal the damage to the Hist from within, perhaps the Mnemic Egg will recover from Ruuvitar's blasphemies.
Hero:How can we heal the Mnemic Egg?
Vicecanon Heita-Meen: That statue, those nests ... are we within the Hist's memories? And those creatures ... brothers to this Hist! Something's wrong. The Hist-brothers seem agitated about these memories.
Hero: Something is wrong with the Hist's memories?
Vicecanon Heita-Meen: These memories are ... recent tragedies? The Hist-brothers don't understand the anguish, and fear the Hist must be full of rot. Perhaps if you help the Hist-brothers understand the Hist's anguish, they won't need to cut it away.
Hero: Goodbye.

Hist-Brother: We heard the wails, felt the trembling of roots. But what our brother says of the flesh-walkers, it cannot be!
Hero: What's wrong?
Hist-Brother: Our brother's fear spreads through the roots. He claims the flesh-walkers boil our blood in vats of iron, all at a Daedra's command! Where is the truth in that?
Hero: Please, explain.
Hist-Brother: Our brother claims his blood was stolen from him by flesh-walkers and boiled in vats to sate a Daedra's gluttony. But if his fear overtakes him, we must sever his roots from the rest of us. Which truth is true, flesh-walker?
Hero: Ruuvitar boiled the Hist sap. The Dremora was his prisoner.

Hist-Brother: Butchered! Their blood poisons the ground. The work of those who serve, or those who forget their place? We'll rend the swamps barren before they tear our roots from the earth!
Hero: What upsets you so much?
Hist-Brother: We feel our brother's rage, but do not understand. He says the Dark Elf vicecanon tried to destroy the eggs at the Hatching Pools. What does this mean?
Hero: What does your brother say, exactly?
Hist-Brother: The Dark Elf vicecanon returns to the old ways, when egg-clutches hatched as slaves. She destroyed a hatching to remind the Hist of her power. If our brother speaks lies, we must feed him to the mire. Which is the truth of it, flesh-walker?
Hero: Vicecanon Servyna was never at the Hatching Pools.

Hist-Brother: Our thoughts turn against us. Who else would have the will but the flesh- walkers? Is it time for the Song of Sithis to bring the Void? Shall they taste fear, and then nothing?
Hero: Why are you upset?
Hist-Brother: Our brother's thoughts roil like thunderheads, yet we do not understand. He says the vicecanons shed their skins like water snakes to hide their intentions! Where is the truth in that?
Hero: What do you mean?
Hist-Brother: The vicecanons lead the flesh-walkers, but our brother says they lead the skin-walkers as well. If our brother speaks lies, we'll cut the rot of his thoughts away. Which is the truth of it, flesh-walker?
Hero: No vicecanon was involved with the skin-stealing.

Voice of the Hist: Flesh-walkers rarely visit our dreams, small one. The whorls of your thoughts bring warmth to our own. Soon we awaken, to nourish ourselves back to health. You must leave, or be dashed against our dreams.
Hero:Where is Vicecanon Heita-Meen?
Voice of the Hist: When you quickened our dream, we knew her great purpose and sent her beyond the dream. But you ... we could not send you just yet. You healed the wounds inflicted by the flesh-walker Ruuvitar, small one. The Hist shall dream of you, always.
Hero: What will happen to the hist? To you?
Voice of the Hist: In seasons to come, we'll grow and blossom. Our roots will mingle with the withered roots of our brothers. They will heal as we do. You've made our future whole. Go now, and be blessed.
Hero: Goodbye.

Vicecanon Heita-Meen: Alive and kicking, I see. As for me, I feel a decade younger. Can you see the healthy shimmer to my scales? You no doubt have questions. Please, ask. It's the least I can do after your help.
Hero: Why am I on a ship?
Vicecanon Heita-Meen: After my soldiers retrieved us from the ruins, I was asked to bring the Mnemic Egg to the Pact. Hence, the ship. It soon departs Shadowfen for Skyrim. Xuth, does your head hurt? Mine feels like an overused drum!
