Cloud Ruler TempleEdit
The Hero must escort Martin Septim to the Elder Council Chambers in order to present his claim to the Septim Throne. However, before they do that, be sure to stock up on healing potions, arrows, repair hammers. If they leave Martin at Cloud Ruler Temple to get these items, when they return to escort him, he will be waiting in the stables to the left of the entrance, hidden from view.
Once they are ready, take Martin to see Chancellor Ocato in the Elder Council Chambers in the Imperial Palace. Midway through the conversation, an Imperial Legion soldier will inform them the Imperial City is under attack by Daedra. Martin will inform the Hero that they must proceed to the Temple of the One. A small hit-squad of Daedra burst into the council chamber itself. There are more outside the doors.
Protect Martin at all costs. Make sure he doesn't die, which is quite hard if they have to fight Xivilai, Dremora Markynaz and Dremora Valkynaz, Daedroth and Storm Atronachs. Thankfully there are around seven generic soldiers (two from the Imperial Palace and five from the Bastion), along with Martin, Ocato, and Baurus to help them. If Baurus had died in an earlier quest, Captain Steffan will aid you. If Steffan had died also, you do not receive help from anyone else.
The biggest fight occurs when their small party enters the Temple quarter. Run through the entrance to the Temple District before Martin gets there so that he will stay behind the door. This leaves them to fight all the Daedra on their own but stops him being killed. If Martin comes through the gate make sure he stays alive at all costs.
There are swarms of powerful Daedra pouring from several Oblivion gates, which could be a mixture of the aforementioned Daedra - so protect Martin. Note that they cannot enter these gates, and if they kill the Daedra coming out of them, more will respawn.
The gates are designed to keep a constant number of enemies on the field. At a certain point in time, Martin will speak to the Hero, once Mehrunes Dagon arrives on site. They can hurry this process along by running away from Martin directly to the right in the Temple District so that they see Mehrunes Dagon. Otherwise, he moves very slowly, and they'll be needlessly fighting Daedra until he gets to them. Run back to Martin for the conversation with him.
After the short talk with Martin, run for the Temple of the One's door at once and waste no time getting inside. Once they are inside Martin will appear inside with them. If they are not fast enough to run in, then attempt to hurt Dagon. He cannot be killed, unless they possess the Wabbajack staff from the Sheogorath shrine quest. Which in this case his life points will be replaced with a lesser creatures', causing him to turn into a glitchy mess when hit with a weapon or damaging spell. If he is hit without the staff's magic, he will be staggered if he is hit with enough power from one particular attack or spell.
Temple of OneEdit
Inside the temple, Martin will show that he is indeed a Septim by turning into a Dragon - the Avatar of Akatosh - and battling with Mehrunes Dagon. Just before Martin turns into the avatar of Akatosh, he bade goodbye to the Hero and then, Mehrunes Dagon will rip off the roof of the temple. Then begins the short fight (where surprisingly Dagon only manages 2 or 3 hits) ending in Martin killing Mehrunes Dagon.
The Dragon, wounded from the fight landed on the temple and turns into a massive statue of Akatosh, similar to the statues in Talos Plaza and Market district. The size is massive because Martin literally turned into a massive dragon.
In the end, Martin's effort managed to not just holding back the Daedra, his actions prohibits them from entering Tamriel and therefore Septim Emperors don't need the Dragonfires.
Ocato, who came into the temple announced that Martin Septim is the greatest emperor of the Septim Dynasty, whose effort is worth more than Tiber Septim and will always be remembered. Ocato then announces to the Hero the title of Champion of Cyrodiil and has ordered a suit of Imperial Dragon Armor to be delivered. However, he is concerned about the future of the empire. Without an emperor he will need the support of the Champion in more recent times.
I must escort Martin to the Elder Council Chambers in the Imperial Palace, to formally present his claim to the Septim Throne.
We have arrived in the Elder Council Chamber. I must formally present Martin's claim to Chancellor Ocato, the head of the Elder Council.
On behalf of the Elder Council, Chancellor Ocato has recognized Martin as Uriel Septim's heir. Now all that remains is for Martin to light the Dragonfires in the Temple of the One.
The Imperial City is under attack! Oblivion Gates have opened all over the city and daedra are pouring out! I must escort Martin safely to the Temple of the One where he can light the Dragonfires, close the Oblivion Gates, and save the city!
Mehrunes Dagon is here! The barriers between Oblivion and Tamriel have been destroyed! Our only hope now is to somehow defeat Mehrunes Dagon and cast him back into Oblivion. Perhaps Martin will know what to do.
Martin said that while mortal weapons may hurt Mehrunes Dagon, they cannot destroy him. He said that if he can only reach the Temple of the One, there is still a chance to turn defeat into victory.
Martin and I are inside the Temple of the One. I must get Martin to the Dragonfires, or all hope is lost.
Martin shattered the Amulet of Kings and transformed himself into an avatar of Akatosh, the Dragon God of Time. In dragon form he banished Mehrunes Dagon to Oblivion and ended the Oblivion Crisis, and then vanished. Whether he is dead, or has ascended to join his ancestor Tiber Septim, no one knows.
