Detailed Walkthrough

This quest is part of convincing each of the three houses to vote you as the Hortator of the House. The exact order you do the houses in is not important. The Telvanni House portion of the Hortator quests is a bit different since in the end you can ultimately kill all the Telvanni council members instead of persuading them all (evidently, that's how they do things). Of course, this route is not the suggested one, but it could be done.

Master Aryon
You can start by talking with Master Aryon in Tel Vos (just West of Tel Mora). Aryon can be found in his chambers at the top of Tel Vos. He immediately affirms his vote for you being the Hortator and tells you about the other council members that you must talk to to get their votes. Master Neloth is evidently ill-tempered, Mistress Dratha doesn't like men, Mistress Threana is losing her mind and Archmagister Gothren will probably refuse you indefinitely. Aryon recommends that you kill Gothren, though he does stand to gain something from his death.

Mistress Dratha
Mistress Dratha is found in the Upper Tower in Tel Mora (just East of Tel Vos). If you're playing as a woman you'll get her support right away. If you're a man however, you'll need to raise her disposition quite a bit to get her to support you (I had to raise it to 100). If you're a man and not a member of Telvanni it may not be possible to to raise her disposition that high, in which case you'll have to kill her. If you can get your disposition high enough, you can throw yourself at her feet and plead your case.

Mistress Therana
Mistress Therana is found in the Upper Tower of Tel Branora, which is on an island at the far South East corner of the game map (you can reach it by ship from Sadrith Mora, Molag Marr, Ebonheart, and Vivec). She will act similarily to Dratha, though she also maybe charmed with a high speechcraft skill (30 or higher?).

Master Neloth
Master Neloth in the Upper Tower at Tel Naga in Sadrith Mora will name you Hortator if you raise his disposition high enough (around 70).

Master Baladas
Master Baladas can be found in Arvs-Drelen in Gnisis and will give you his vote if your a house member. Otherwise you may have to raise his disposition again before he gives you his support. Be careful of the various creatures wandering aroudn the halls (everything from a Rat to a Daedroth).

Gothren can be found in the Upper Tower of Tel Aruhn, just West of Sadrith Mora. Unfortunately, unlike the other council members, no matter what you do to presuade Gothren, he won't give you a decision, forcing you to kill him as Aryon suggested. This is no easy battle as Gothren is a master spellcaster and he has two Dremora guarding him. Gothren's favorite spell paralyzes while damaging you, so a few Cure Paralysis potions help. Also, if you get a few good surprise hits in with a powerful weapon, he won't have too much time to cast anything.

Return to Master Aryon
Upon returning to Aryon in Tel Mora, he awards you the title of Hortator of the Telvanni, along with the Robe of the Hortator as a status symbol. If you've completed all three Houses and four Ashlander Tribes, you can head over to the Temple District in Vivec for the next part of the quest.
