When spoken to, Forstaag the Sweltering will claim that he has not been seduced and tricked by a witch, but is naked merely to cool himself. If approached again, he will repeat his claims and accuse the Nerevarine of thinking in stereotypes. This whole conversation is a reference to the quests "The Paralyzed Barbarian" and "Recovering Cloudcleaver" in The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind, where the Nerevarine encounters naked Nord barbarians who claim to have escorted a woman that turned out to be a witch who stole them their clothing.
Greeting "What're you looking at? No, I'm not paralyzed. And I've never even met a witch, much less been asked to escort one anywhere. Why am I naked? Because it's too damned hot here! You people think that every time you see a naked Nord barbarian, he's been tricked by some witch. So narrow minded. Now leave me alone."
- Greeting "I told you I don't need any help. I'm just trying to cool off a bit. I've never even seen a witch! You people and your stereotypes...."
Greeting (during "An Attack on Mournhold") "Look, I don't know what's going on in this place. Monsters bursting up from the ground, guards running around everywhere...this is lunacy. You'll notice I'm not blaming this on any witch. And it's still too hot around here."
- Forstaag, along with Botrir, Hisin Deep-Raed, and Hlormar Wine-Sot, is one of the nearly-naked Nords found in Morrowind.
