Pete Hines looks completely shocked and mortified that Todd was able to break free from the Daedric rune prison in the Bethesda basement. Todd takes the microphone from Pete, and in an intimidating yet calming voice bellows: “What a fool you are, I’m a god! How can you kill a god? What a grand and intoxicating innocence. How could you be so naïve? There is no escape. No recall or intervention can work in this place. Come, lay down your weapons, it is not too late for my mercy.”
I dreamed that a tall figure with a golden mask spoke to me, but I understood not a word. He smiled, and seemed pleasant, but when he reached to touch me, it terrified me, and I tried to escape, but I couldn’t move. I tried to cry out, but I couldn’t make a sound. The figure kept smiling and talking, but I felt sure he was trying to cast some sort of spell on me. When I woke, I couldn’t recall how the dream ended
“I will ask the Tribunal what we shall do with them, for they have had wisdom in the past that I had not. Stay here, loyal Dagoth-Ur, until I return. <…>
Nerevar asked his queen and generals to help him summon Azura yet again for her guidance. But the Tribunal had become as greedy as Kagrenac upon hearing of the power of the Heart and they coveted it. They made ritual as if to summon Azura as Nerevar wanted but Almalexia used poisoned candles and Sotha Sil used poisoned robes and Vivec used poisoned invocations. Nerevar was murdered.
And then the Tribunal went into Red Mountain and met with Dagoth-Ur. Dagoth-Ur saw what had been done, and he tried to avenge the death of Nerevar but to no avail. He was driven off and thought dead. The Tribunal found the tools he had been guarding and, through study of Kagrenac’s methods, turned themselves into gods.”

My work for elderscrolls illustration challenge. Nerevarine’s nightmare. “I dreamed that a tall figure with a golden mask spoke to me, but I understood not a word.

You're a reincarnation of the mortal God, Nerevar, here to stop the fabled Dagoth Ur of the sixth house! You are revered from the Ashlanders, feared by the Temple! Only you can wield the fabled items required to destroy the Heart of Lorkhan!
You're the Dragonborn! You have the Voice, able to bring mortals to their knees in fear. You must stop the dragon, Alduin, dragon Lord of Time from ending the world as we know it!
... Hey... We accidentally didn't think of a safer place to hide the most important item to stop the Oblivion Crisis than a wardrobe in a priory... Despite having a fortified garrison in the mountains... Could you get it back? Once you do, your friend Martin will defeat the main antagonist and you can get some cool armour or something. Maybe be called Champion of Cyrodiil?
