“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.”

Todd Howard walks on stage at E3

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.”

for elder scrolls challenge - Nerevarine’s nightmares

not animated version

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
