Faction: Aldmeri Dominion
Province: Valenwood
Location: Grahtwood
Required Level: 19

Text of the Quest:

All is not well in . The Khajiit lack an embassy, which is the cause of tensions in the capital city of the Aldmeri Dominion. King Camoran Aeradan says the discontent lies with Queen Ayrenns pledge of assistance to build the embassy, none of which has been forthcoming. He directed me to speak with Prince Naemon to find out why.


Talk to Prince Naemon

King Camoran Aeradan: Queen Ayrenn doesn't give her recommendation lightly. If she thinks you can assist us, I take her at her word.
Hero: I'd like to be of service, your majesty.
King Camoran Aeradan: How are you at building embassies? You see, Queen Ayrenn promised one would be built for the Khajiit, as a gesture of goodwill. But now a year has passed, and there's still no Khajiit Embassy. This has led to no end of headaches.
Hero: What has caused the delay?
King Camoran Aeradan: Good question. You wish to serve the Camoran throne? You can start by asking Prince Naemon why his people aren't fulfilling their promises. He's the one who seems to have the entire Elden Tree lodged up his flue. I can say that. I'm the king.
Hero: I'll ask Prince Naemon.

Prince Naemon: Yes? Quickly, now. Don't leave your mouth to hang agape.
Hero: King Camoran Aeradan says there are some problems with the Khajiit embassy.
Prince Naemon: That again? My sister... Queen Ayrenn foolishly committed to build the Khajiit an embassy, months ago. Everything was to be handled through Ambassador Tarinwe at the Altmer Embassy.
Hero: Why has it been delayed?
Prince Naemon: No. You don't get to question me. Not after you slew High Kinlady Estre. Do you think I'm one to have a chat with the person who killed my wife? That we'll break out the sylph-mead and share a good laugh?
Hero: [Persuade] I think Queen Ayrenn trusts you to put the Dominion's interests before your own.
Prince Naemon: Hmph. I suppose that's my burden. Very well. I won't give you the satisfaction of doubting my loyalty. You were asking after the Khajiit?
Hero: Yes. What could have delayed their embassy's construction?
Prince Naemon: Ask a stonemason. I have to prepare for the ratification ceremony before Queen Ayrenn's arrival. I can't be troubled with such minor issues. If you care to pursue the matter, speak with Ambassador Tarinwe at the Altmer Embassy.
Hero: What's a ratification ceremony?
Prince Naemon: An archaic Wood Elf ritual. If she dances to their tune, Queen Ayrenn will be recognized by the heavens as a worthy candidate for emperor of Tamriel. Rubbish, if you ask me.
Hero: With all that's happening, why did Queen Ayrenn offer to build the Khajiit an embassy?
Prince Naemon: To promote harmony, she'd tell you. The same reason she picked this bizarre tree city as the Dominion's capital. She wants every member of the Dominion to feel as though they're equal.
Hero: You disagree with Queen Ayrenn's plans?
Prince Naemon: Oh, we do need to be unified against our enemies. And having a High Elf in charge is paramount to our success. But do we really need all this coddling? The ratification ceremony, the business with the embassy ... more problems due to "harmony."

Ambassador Tarinwe: I suppose a wanderer like you wouldn't know what "busy" looks like. I will demonstrate. Feel free to observe. Quietly, and from a distance.
Hero: Prince Naemon said I should speak with you.
Ambassador Tarinwe: Forgive my manners! There's so much to do in preparing for Queen Ayrenn's ratification ceremony. Tempers fray, as I'm sure you can understand. But if Prince Naemon sent you, it must be important. What can I do for you?
Hero: Why isn't the Khajiit Embassy constructed yet?
Ambassador Tarinwe: Why would Prince Naemon care about that? If they're too lazy to build their own embassy, can't they afford an inn?
Hero: Prince Naemon says it was your responsibility.
Ambassador Tarinwe: Well, I... of course I ordered it done! I hired some Wood Elves to excavate the stone, and set aside supplies for Khajiit to use. It isn't my fault if the locals couldn't do their jobs!
Hero: Where are the supplies?
Ambassador Tarinwe: Check our storeroom. The Khajiit didn't even bother to pick up the supplies! In the meantime. I'm off to locate Prince Naemon. If he didn't send you here with his blessing, I'll see you face Dominion justice.

Corporal Malin: That's far enough. The storeroom is off limits. Ambassador Tarinwe's orders.
Hero: Ambassador Tarinwe sent me to inspect the storeroom.
Corporal Malin: She did? That's different, then. Show me her orders and I'll stand aside.
Hero: She didn't give me any orders.
Corporal Malin: Then I can't let you inside. Her instructions were very specific—no one gets in without her written permission. I'm to remain at my post until relieved. Except in an emergency, of course.
Hero: What kind of emergency?
Corporal Malin: The Khajiit could riot. That would be bad, very bad. Or a fire, of course. But the chances of that happening are slim.
Hero: [Intimidate] If you don't step aside, you're going to have an emergency.
Corporal Malin: I... What? Did you hear that? I could've sworn it was my captain, calling me away.

Food Sack: This food sack is full of rotten meat, old bones, and spoiled grain. There's nothing edible inside.

Supply Crate: The blankets inside this crate are full of holes and the tools are broken. All of the supplies inside are worthless.

Prince Naemon: I'd expected you would solve problems at the embassy, not cause them! Do you realize what's happening out here? Never mind. Explain what you were doing in that storeroom.
Hero: Ambassador Tarinwe told me to search the storeroom.
Prince Naemon: Why would she do that? Oh, never mind. Well? What did you find?
Hero: The supplies reserved for the Khajiit are useless.
Prince Naemon: Typical bureaucratic corruption. I expected better of the ambassador. No matter, supplies can be replaced. What about the Khajiit embassy? Did she say why construction hasn't begun?
Hero: She said she hired a local work crew to collect stone from the nearby ruins.
Prince Naemon: What do you mean, "collect stone?" That should have happened months ago. They should be ready to build it! I'll talk to the ambassador myself. Put the fear of the Dominion into her.
Hero: The ambassador said she was heading to look for you.
Prince Naemon: tmer Embassy Hmph. I'm surprised we didn't pass each other on the road. Get to those ruins and find that work crew. I want to know why they haven't done their jobs. I won't have Queen Ayrenn's word impugned by someone else's incompetence.

Wood Elf Worker: The multiple cuts on this Wood Elf's body appear to have come from an axe. His hands are calloused, and he wears the simple clothing of a tradesmans

Broken Cart: The surface of this cart is covered in a layer of fine dust. It appears to have been hacked apart.

Azareth: Saw you standing over the body of a dead Wood Elf. Nearly put an arrow in your throat. Good thing I recognize you.
Hero: Who are you? What are you doing here?
Azareth: Azareth, Vinedusk Ranger. We work directly for King Camoran Aeradan. Saw you earlier, in the throne room. The king had his suspicions about the missing work crew, and asked me to look into it. Seems we both have a stake in this.
Hero: How much do you know about what's going on?
Azareth: I know enough. Khajiit are owed an embassy. They're angry the High Elves are dragging their feet to build it. Seemed like politics, until a dozen stonemasons vanished without a trace. The king sent me to find out why.
Hero: Why did the king send you?
Azareth: Before the Dominion, King Camoran Aeradan nearly lost a civil war. I came to see if the missing stonemasons were targeted by the Blacksap Rebellion. But Blacksap would've displayed the bodies, not left them as food for hoarvor.
Hero: Then who did this?
Azareth: The king suspects Ambassador Tarinwe has been up to no good. Little things, some of her associations. But he can't accuse his allies of undermining the whole alliance. So he sent me to deal with it.
Hero: Deal with it how?
Azareth: Ambassador Tarinwe used criminals to smuggle supplies ... never directly, but enough for us to notice. I'm not saying she had these stonemasons killed, but I'd like to ask her myself. Problem is, there's nothing we can do while she's in the Altmer Embassy.
Hero: Ambassador Tarinwe left the Altmer Embassy earlier, after I questioned her.
Azareth: If she left the embassy, she knows someone's on to her. She'll go to ground, try to flee ... have someone smuggle her out of Grahtwood. We should probably stop her. Meet me by the Middens, at the base of the Elden Tree. I'll be there shortly.
Hero: All right. I'll meet you there.

Azareth: They call this place the Middens because it's where all the refuse ends up. We clear them out now and again, but they always come back. Necessary evil, I'm told.
Hero: Are you certain Ambassador Tarinwe is inside?
Azareth: Spoke with someone I trust. She's definitely here. We should get moving. We're not far behind her.
Hero: What's the plan if we find her?
Azareth: Capture her. Bring her in for questioning. Find proof she's behind this so Prince Naemon doesn't explode with outrage. Huh. Never thought I'd hunt a High Elf ambassador.
Hero: What can we expect to find in the Middens?
Azareth: Smugglers, skooma addicts, and more than a few criminals. They keep to themselves, but sometimes they band together to repel outsiders. Kind of like a filthier version of the Dominion.
Hero: How do you recommend we proceed?
Azareth: Our goal is to find Ambassador Tarinwe before she buys passage out of Grahtwood. Staying in the shadows, avoiding unnecessary conflict... that's what I'd do. But there's a lot of ground to search. I'll follow your lead.

King Camoran Aeradan: You've returned. What have you learned of the Khajiit Embassy?
Hero: Ambassador Tarinwe conspired against the Dominion.
King Camoran Aeradan: Oh, good. Nothing I enjoy more than talk of conspiracy. Did the ambassador have a manifesto? They usually have manifestos. No matter. I trust you resolved it?
Hero: I captured Ambassador Tarinwe.
King Camoran Aeradan: Splendid. I'll allow you the honor of informing Prince Naemon. Why not tell him the duly selected High Elf ambassador was working against the very Dominion she pledged to support? I'll sit in my throne and try not to gloat.

Prince Naemon: I heard what you said to the king. Ambassador Tarinwe, a traitor; my wife's killer, a loyal servant; and I, Queen Ayrenn's representative in Elden Root, required to thank you for your efforts. Very well. I'll provide no reason to question my duty to the Dominion.
Hero: What will happen to Ambassador Tarinwe?
Prince Naemon: We'il interrogate Ambassador Tarinwe until we know the extent of her treason. Then she'll die, as all traitors must. But no matter. Your efficiency in resolving this matter was commendable, and the Dominion rewards its servants.
Hero: Complete Quest.
