There are strange people wandering around...

[edit] Summary

This quest is different from normal quests in some aspects. There are multiple separate events that start and update the quest and there are different ways to solve it.

While advancing through the Main Quest, various events will occur that show the growing influence of the Sixth House. Several people will start talking oddly, announcing the rise of Dagoth Ur, and you will receive a couple of disturbing dreams and cultists will eventually attack you in your sleep.

The events that trigger this quest will start during Caius Cosades' first quest. The quest will remain active during the entire Main Quest, and be marked as finished after destroying Dagoth Ur.

[edit] Events

[edit] Disturbing Dreams

While advancing through the informant quests given by Caius Cosades and sleeping in Ald'ruhn, Balmora or Vivec you will receive disturbing dreams about a tall figure with a golden mask (Dagoth Ur). You will receive your first dream after you have returned the Dwemer Puzzle Box during the Antabolis Informant quest, your second and third after you talk with Addhiranirr and Mehra Milo during the Vivec Informants quest respectively. And you will receive the last dream after the Zainsubani Informant quest.

When you have received your first dream, you can talk about this with a few people by mentioning the disturbing dreams topic. Caius Cosades will be worried, but can only warn you not to listen to them. Mehra Milo will advise you to speak to an Ashlander about this. If you talk to an Ashlander they will just direct you to a Wise Woman, though Hassour Zainsubani can tell you a bit more about them. Of all the Wise Women, Nibani Maesa of the Urshilaku Camp, will be best able to explain the dreams to you. This will not stop the dreams from occurring though.

[edit] Sleepers Awake

After you have returned the Dwemer Puzzle Box during the Antabolis Informant quest, you will notice various Dunmer approaching you at night. They will speak oddly about the rise of Dagoth Ur and call themselves "Sleepers". If you are a Dunmer yourself they will invite you to come to the Red Mountain and join the Sixth House. If you are not, they will warn you to leave Morrowind while you still can. Each time they speak to you, their disposition towards you will drop. Be careful, if they hate you enough, they might attack you.

The Sleepers are:

[edit] Attacked by Cultists

After you have completed the Sixth House Base quest, and sleep in Ald'ruhn, Balmora or Vivec you will be attacked by an ash zombie. You can report this to Caius Cosades and he will advise you to sleep outside of town. He will also advise you to search for a nearby base of Sixth House cultists before they attack you again.

[edit] Breaking the Curse

There is one definitive way to solve the quest, and that is to destroy Dagoth Ur. This will stop the attacks and will lift the spell that was influencing the Sleepers.

It is possible to stop these events earlier in the Main Quest by seeking out the cultists responsible for these events and killing them. There are four cultists responsible in total, and they can all be found at different locations. There are no real leads to those locations, but there are a few other quests that deal with this matter.

[edit] Cultist in Ald'ruhn

The Redoran quest Ash Statue deals with tracking down the cultist in Ald'ruhn. The cultist is Hanarai Assutlanipal and she can be found in her own house. You can kill her anytime, you don't have to be involved in the Ash Statue quest.

Killing her will save Dravasa Andrethi's from Dagoth Ur's influence, and stop the attacks when sleeping in Ald'ruhn.

[edit] Dagoth Hlevul in Assemanu

The Hlaalu quest Control the Ordinators eventually sends you to Assemanu to retrieve an artifact. Dagoth Hlevul can be found in Assemanu, Shrine, and can be killed at any time.

Killing Dagoth Hlevul will save Alvura Othrenim, Daynasa Telandas, Eralane Hledas, Neldris Llervu, Nelmil Hler, Relur Faryon and Vivyne Andrano from Dagoth Ur's influence, and stop the attacks when sleeping in Vivec.

[edit] Dagoth Fovon in Hassour

The Temple quest Dark Cult in Hassour sends you to Hassour to eliminate the Sixth House cult there, and ultimately Dagoth Fovon. You don't have to be involved in the quest to venture to Hassour on your own and eliminate the cult.

Killing Dagoth Fovon will save Dralas Gilu, Drarayne Girith, Llandras Belaal and Rararyn Radarys from Dagoth Ur's influence, and stop the attacks when sleeping in Balmora.

[edit] Dagoth Draven in Subdun

There is no quest that points you to Dagoth Draven in Subdun. You will have to travel there on your own and eliminate Dagoth Draven, located in Subdun, Shrine.

Killing Dagoth Draven will save Assi Serimilk, Endris Dilmyn and Vireveri Darethran from Dagoth Ur's influence.

[edit] Reaping the Rewards

No one will give you a reward when completing this quest, but after you have saved a Sleeper from Dagoth Ur's influence, by either finishing the Main Quest or killing the cultist responsible, you can talk to him or her. They will thank you for saving them and state that they will tell everyone they know how you saved them, causing you to gain 1 Reputation point. This can be done for every Sleeper, eventually netting you a total of 15 Reputation points!

[edit] Notes

  • Even if you eliminate all the cultists responsible, the quest will remain as an Active Quest in your journal. Only when completing The Citadels of the Sixth House will this quest be marked as finished.
  • If you are attacked by a cultist in a certain town, you will not be attacked there again until you have slept at least once outside that town.
  • If you kill an essential character, even after completing the main quest, sleepers will refuse to speak to you and cannot be cured.

[edit] Bugs

  • Due to an error in Neldris Llervu's dialogue it is possible to repeatedly receive Reputation points each time you mention Sixth House to him, after you have saved him from Dagoth Ur's influence. This only works if you saved Neldris by killing Dagoth Hlevul (instead of finishing the main quest). Once you complete the main quest, the glitch no longer works. This bug only applies to Neldris and no other sleepers.
  • Once a sleeper has become aggressive, they will remain hostile toward you even after you cure them. You'll need to calm them temporarily in order to speak to them.

Sleepers Awake (A1_Dreams)
Index Finishes Quest Journal Entry
1 Finishes quest I had a disturbing dream. I can only recall one part. A tall figure with a golden mask led me among the dead as through a wedding celebration. I heard many voices, but no lips moved. I strained to breathe, but my chest didn't move. The tall figure spoke with each figure as he passed among them, laughing and joking, as if they were alive, but they made no reply. I tried to cry out, but without breath, my tongue fluttered in vain.
5 Finishes quest In my dream, a tall figure with a golden mask greeted me, saying, "There are many rooms in the house of the Master. Be easy, for from the hands of your enemies I have delivered you." It seemed I had died and could see myself laid upon a table lit by candles. But with my own hands I touched the figure, and the figure drew breath, opened eyes, and rose from the table. Then the room was gone, and the world filled with light, and I awoke.
10 Finishes quest 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.
15 Finishes quest In my dreams, a tall figure in a golden mask spoke to me. "Lord Nerevar Indoril, Hai Resdaynia! Long forgotten, forged anew! Three belied you, three betrayed you! One you betrayed was three times true! Lord Voryn Dagoth, Dagoth Ur, steadfast liegeman, faithful friend, bids you come and climb Red Mountain! Beneath Red Mountain, once again, break your bonds, shed cursed skin, and purge the n'wah from Morrowind!"
Sleepers Awake (A1_SleeperDreamer02)
1 Gindrala Hleran says there's a strange man in her house, and he won't leave. She asked me to get him out of there, because he is scaring her.
50 Finishes quest I told Gindrala Hleran that I had to kill the strange man who had invaded her house. She was grateful, and promised to tell everyone how kind and brave I'd been.
Sleepers Awake (A1_SleepersAwake)
1 I spoke with one who called himself a "Sleeper." He called me by name, and said, "You cannot deny your Lord, Dagoth Ur. The Sixth House is risen, and Dagoth is its glory." He made no sense at all. I think he must have been mad.
3 Sixth House cultists attacked me as I slept in my bed.
5 I told the Spymaster how Sixth House cultists attacked me as I slept in bed. The Spymaster said it may not be safe to sleep in town. Perhaps I should search for a nearby base, and attack them before they attack me.
7 I was attacked by someone called a "Sleeper," for no apparent reason.
50 Finishes quest With Dagoth Ur destroyed, his insane dreams can no longer drive the people of Morrowind to madness as they sleep. (This entry does not appear in the vanilla game - it is added by Tribunal and Bloodmoon)
