What's going on?: "This road is the only thoroughfare that connects Bangkorai and Cyrodiil. And these so-called "Celestials" are making a mess of it. We've appealed to the Daggerfall Covenant for help, but they're... distracted."
- What do you mean, distracted?: "That damned Alliance War. Troops need to get to Cyrodiil, and the Covenant's got its hands full protecting its supply lines. Or so they say."
- You don't believe them?: "If this was Glenumbra or Stormhaven we were talking about and not backwater Craglorn, the Covenant would have no trouble finding the resources to help us- Alliance War or not. But who am I to complain?"
Tell me about Elinhir: "Word is, the mages that run the place are at each other's throats. You ask me, it was inevitable. Inviting renegade mages to live there was just asking for trouble. Luckily, most of the citizens got out before things got really bad."
Tell me about this huge crater: "Some say it's the gods displeasure, fired from Aetherius to punish us. Others say it's Daedric. Still others think it's the Celestial Mage's staff, flung from the heavens. Whatever it is, it's bad news. I'd stay clear of it."
- Zibaran actually says "Aetherium" instead of "Aetherius".
