Allies for Bruma is a quest available in The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion. This quest involves going to each major city in the province of Cyrodiil and appealing to the local Count or Countess for aid.

OverviewEdit

The Daedra of Oblivion are innumerable - the soldiers of Bruma are not. The gates generally have no outstanding features compared with other randomized gates.

Exceptions are Cheydinhal's gate, where the Hero meets up with Farwil and the Knights of the Thorn and starts The Wayward Knight and Kvatch, if Breaking the Siege of Kvatch was not completed. The main objective in each gate is to grab the Sigil Stone that keeps the gate open.

Upon closing each gate:

This is an optional quest; however, it is directly associated with the main quest and the difficulty of the Great Gate fight. It is recommended that this quest be completed if the Hero is high-level and encounters Dremora Valkynaz and Markynaz on a regular basis.

These enemies will pose much greater danger to allies and Martin than lower-level enemies would. If guards are not acquired from a city, the missing guards are replaced by Bruma Militia Men, but these are weaker than the guardsmen. It is recommended to, at minimum, get help from Anvil, Bravil, Cheydinhal, and Chorrol, as these cities will each send two guards.

JournalEdit

Journal Entry
  • Update: Upon receiving the quest:

Jauffre is worried that the Bruma Guard will not be able to defend Bruma from a full-scale attack by the Mythic Dawn and their daedric allies. He suggested that I try to obtain support from the other cities of Cyrodiil. Perhaps I can persuade the Elder Council in the Imperial City or the guilds to help as well.

  • Update: After speaking to the Countess of Anvil:

I spoke to the Countess of Anvil. She said she would be glad to send help, if only her own city wasn't threatened by an Oblivion Gate. I should close the gate outside Anvil and then talk to the Countess again.

I closed the Oblivion Gate outside of Anvil. I should speak to the Countess about sending aid to Bruma now that Anvil is no longer directly threatened.

  • Update: After speaking to Chancellor Ocato:

I spoke to Chancellor Ocato, the head of the Elder Council. He was unable to promise any soldiers from the Imperial Legions, since they are all tied down in the provinces fighting the daedric invasion. He suggested I ask the Counts and Countesses of Cyrodiil for help.

  • Update: After speaking to the Countess of Bruma:

The Countess of Bruma urged me to obtain any additional help that I can find. She fears that her troops will be overwhelmed before I can close the Great Gate.

  • Update: After obtaining all allies:

I have obtained allies from everyone that might help. Bruma is as well-defended as possible.

TriviaEdit

BugsEdit

  • Occasionally, a count or countess will not acknowledge when a gate outside their city has been closed, despite the fact that everyone else in town does. This may be caused by the existence of another gate nearby, so closing the second gate may eliminate the problem.
  • It is possible that the Count of Skingrad may get stuck inside of his room after the Skingrad gate is closed. Sneaking inside to speak with him should allow the dialog to continue normally. This may require a high Acrobatics skill to navigate over the roof of Castle Skingrad. The Hero can get the key during the quest Ulterior Motives. To fix this go into the county Hall and talk to his steward.
    • Something similar may happen as a result of completing the Vampire Cure quest. As another result of this quest, Hassildor may not be able to enter conversation with the Hero, in which case attacking and yielding to him should reset his status.
  • The sigil stone in the gate may not respond when activated, making it impossible to close the gate.
  • When closing an Oblivion Gate and returning to the count or countess, sometimes the count or countess will send help and the quest is just abandoned. Making it impossible to complete the main story line.
