Hortator and Nerevarine is one of the last quests in the main questline of The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind.

BackgroundEdit

Quotebg
"Athyn Sarethi gave me a sealed package containing a message sent on behalf of Archcanon Saryoni, High Archcanon of Vivec. In event that I become both Hortator of the three Great Houses and Nerevarine of the four Ashlander Tribes, Saryoni invites me to a private meeting to consider my claims. Once I am Hortator and Nerevarine I should speak with the healer of the High Fane of Vivec, Danso Indules, to arrange the meeting."
Nerevarine's journal[src]

ObjectivesEdit

WalkthroughEdit

Having been named Hortator, Athyn Sarethi gives the Nerevarine a sealed message from the Archcanon in Vivec. The message tells the Nerevarine that, should they be declared the Hortator by the Great Houses and the Nerevarine of the four Ashlander Tribes, then they must travel to Vivec to speak with the Archcanon. Doing all this will also fulfil the Fourth and Fifth Trials of the Seven Visions.

Finding the ArchcanonEdit

Tholer Saryani

Tholer Saryoni

The Nerevarine must find the Archcanon within the Temple Canton. The first person the Nerevarine will meet outside the Temple Canton in Vivec is Danso Indules, she will tell the Nerevarine that the Archcanon can be found in his quarters within the High Fane. She warns that the Ordinators are guarding the locked door, making it difficult to reach the Achcanon's quarters. If questionned further, she will reveal that there is a second unguarded entrance to his quaters found in the Hall of Wisdom.

Archcanon Tholer SaryoniEdit

Having entered the quarters of Archcanon, Tholer Saryoni, the Nerevarine must speak to him about the message. The Nerevarine must refer to the "Temple's doctrine" in order to progress the quest further, at which point Saryoni will arrange a meeting with the God Vivec. The Nerevarine is then given two keys, one for the door to his office, the other for the Palace of Vivec door. Then, Saryoni explains that the Ordinators are still not entirely under his control.

VivecEdit

Hortator and Nerevarine 2 - Morrowind

The Nerevarine speaking with Vivec

Upon entering the doors at the top of the Palace, the Nerevarine must then speak to Vivec. Vivec then reveals to the Nerevarine his plan to defeat Dagoth Ur, after the Nerevarine has agreed to all of the oaths and received the Plan to Defeat Dagoth Ur, Vivec also gives them Wraithguard, a powerful enchanted gauntlet that is required to manipulate the Heart of Lorkhan, which will, in turn, help defeat Dagoth Ur. Vivec then gives the Nerevarine his blessing and the promise that he will end the Temple's hostility towards the Dissident Priests and the Nerevarine. He will add, that now the Hero may help themselves to any books, here or in the temple's library that may be helpful.

IDJournal Entry
1Athyn Sarethi gave me a sealed package containing a message sent on behalf of Archcanon Saryoni, High Archcanon of Vivec. In the event that I become both Hortator of the three Great Houses and Nerevarine of the four Ashlander tribes, Saryoni invites me to a private meeting to consider my claims. Once I am Hortator and Nerevarine, I should speak with the healer of the High Fane of Vivec, Danso Indules, to arrange the meeting.

5The archcanon is in his private quarters, and he wants to speak with me, but I must avoid confrontations with the Ordinators at all costs, because spilling the blood of faithful servants of the Temple will make a reconciliation more difficult. The archcanon has spoken with the High Fane Ordinators, but if I am a wanted criminal, they may try to arrest me.
20The Ordinators guarding the High Fane know that I have come to meet with Saryoni. They warned me not to break the law, or they will take swift action.
25Archcanon Saryoni accepted my apology for killing the Ordinator guard at the High Fane. He said it was time to risk trusting one another.
30Archcanon Saryoni has suggested that the Temple's policy concerning the Nerevarine might change, and has arranged a private meeting with Lord Vivec. He gave me two keys: one to the private back entrance to his quarters, the other to a locked entrance to Lord Vivec's palace. He says the Ordinators are not under his control, and asks that I avoid them. Lord Vivec is expecting me, and perhaps I shouldn't keep him waiting.
34I refused to accept Wraithguard from Lord Vivec. He dismissed me, but told me to come back if I changed my mind.
36Lord Vivec asked me if I would accept Wraithguard, and he would not accept my answer of 'maybe.' He dismissed me, but told me to come back if I changed my mind.
38I refused to swear my oath, before all gods and men, before all spirits visible and invisible, before my honor and Vivec's honor, to dedicate myself and Wraithguard to the defeat and destruction of Dagoth Ur, and the preservation of Morrowind and its people. Vivec said I would not find Wraithguard useful, because without my oath, he wouldn't teach me its use. He dismissed me, but told me to come back if I changed my mind.
40Lord Vivec wouldn't accept a 'maybe' in answer to his demand that I swear an oath to dedicate myself and Wraithguard to the defeat and destruction of Dagoth Ur, and the preservation of Morrowind and its people. He said I would not find Wraithguard useful, because without my oath, he wouldn't teach me its use. He dismissed me, but told me to come back if I changed my mind.
50I accepted Wraithguard from Lord Vivec, and I swore my oath, before all gods and men, before all spirits visible and invisible, before my honor and Vivec's honor, to dedicate myself and Wraithguard to the defeat and destruction of Dagoth Ur, and the preservation of Morrowind and its people. Vivec somehow taught me how to use Wraithguard. He then offered to give some explanations, or to let me go immediately, as I wished.

 55 To defeat Dagoth Ur, Vivec says I must go to Red Mountain to recover the artifact hammer Sunder from Gate Citadel Vemynal, then the artifact blade Keening from Gate Citadel Odrosal. Then, with these artifacts and Wraithguard, if I destroy the enchantments on the Heart of Lorkhan in Dagoth Ur's citadel, Dagoth Ur will be destroyed, and the Blight ended. Vivec gave me 'The Plan to Defeat Dagoth Ur' to explain the details.
