Dialogue[edit]

  • Voice:
    • "Yes? What can I do for you? I am Captain Falx Carius, commander of Fort Frostmoth."
    • "I asked you to investigate why the morale has been low in the fort. Have you learned anything?"
    • "Have you found more information on the weapons being smuggled from the Fort?"
  • Greetings:
    • "Yes? What can I do for you? I am Captain Falx Carius, commander of Fort Frostmoth."
    • "I was mentioning to you that the men seem edgy."
    • "I asked you to investigate why the morale has been low in the fort. Have you learned anything?"
    • "You've helped me deal with the low morale at the fort, perhaps you can help me with some other fort business."
    • "Have you found more information on the weapons being smuggled from the fort?"
    • "%PCName, it is you! I am sorry you, too, have been brought to play in this nefarious game. Since the werewolves captured me at the fort, I have been held here by this demon Hircine. Soon, others joined me: one of the Nords, named Heart-Fang, along with a beast named Karstaag. I believe the only hope for escape is to find our way through this maze."
    • "Let us continue through this maze."
    • "Wait, my friend. I can go no further. This contest can have only one victor, and you will have to be the one. Perhaps if you are able to escape, I will find my way out in time. For now, I will guard this gate and make sure none of the beasts follow you through. Take care if you encounter the others. Karstaag is a wild creature, and will certainly try to kill you. Heart-Fang worries me...there is something wild in his eyes that I do not trust. Good luck, %PCName."
    • "I will wait here and guard the gate. Good luck, my friend."
    • "It is good to see you again. I believed I was dead for sure, but as the glacier toppled around me, I was transported outside. I am glad that you, too, survived the ordeal. Now, how may I help you?"
    • "You! Do not think that I cannot see through the form you now wear. I am sorry it must come to this, %PCName. I had thought better of you. It is clear, though, that you have joined with these dark forces. Killing you will be an act of mercy." Goodbye

  • Antonius Nuncius:
    • "Antonius Nuncius is dead? This is terrible! I can't have these things happening under my command. Forget the search for the cause of the low morale. There are more important things to attend to, obviously."
    • "If you believe he is connected with this low morale here at the fort, find some proof. If you think you have proof, confront him. Let's see how he reacts to it."
    • "I'm sure I'll be able to find a great number of duties for Nuncius to perform. He'll be quite busy now. What was he thinking? Well...we'll whip him into shape."
  • bit of help:
    • "I would like you to work with one of my soldiers on this case. There are two available to you, and they are two of the best here at Fort Frostmoth: Saenus Lusius and Gaea Artoria. You'll find Lusius in the General Quarters, and Artoria in the General Quarters, Upper Level. Speak with them and decide which will be your companion. When you have unearthed the smuggling ring, report to me. I leave how you deal with the smugglers to your discretion."
    • "As I said, please choose either Gaea Artoria or Saenus Lusius to aid you in this endeavor."
    • "I see you've gotten some help in the effort to discover the smuggling ring. Report to me when you have more information."
  • booze: "I'm not a drinker myself."
  • Captain Carius: "I am Captain Falx Carius, commander of Fort Frostmoth."
  • Castle Karstaag: "I have met the master of that place, though I hope never to meet him again."
  • disturbing trends:
    • "To be sure. The men have been restless, complaining more than usual. They have been lackadaisical in the performance of their duties. I sense a great unease among them, and morale has been low."
    • "As I said, morale has been low."
    • "Don't concern yourself with this any longer."
  • dry fort:
    • "I have no real interest in banning alcohol at Fort Frostmoth, especially since the morale has been low. Antonius Nuncius, however, felt strongly about it."
    • "Yes, you've said that seems to be related to why the morale has been low."
    • "That matter has been settled."
  • edgy:
    • "As I said, this is a difficult post. These soldiers are separated from their families and forced to live in harsh conditions. To be fair, most of these men were sent to this island as punishment for a past offense. They are not the best of soldiers. Yet. Still, until recently, they had performed their duties adequately. Lately, I have noticed some disturbing trends."
    • "They have been on edge. I worry about some of these disturbing trends."
    • "That is no longer a concern."
  • find our way:
    • "That is what the demon told me. We are to fight our way through this maze, which is hunted by the werewolves the demon calls his Hounds. I am weak, my friend, and have been here for too long. Perhaps together, we can find our way to safety. We must find the key to allow us through the gate in the center of this maze."
      • Let us go together. "I am glad for your companionship. Together we will fight our way through these demon hordes and escape this evil prison. There is a door in the center of this maze, but we will need a key to enter. Let us go find this key and leave this place." Goodbye
      • Only one of us can survive. It must be me. "I cannot believe this! Your mind has been clouded by these demons! I am sorry to have to fight you, %PCName, for I thought you a friend. If this is how it must be, I wish you an honorable death." Goodbye
    • "I believe we can find our way out of this demon realm."
  • Fort business:
    • "As I've told you, not all of my soldiers here are trustworthy. Many were sent to this Fort in lieu of Ebonheart's dungeons. Now, I fear that a criminal element has shown itself at Fort Frostmoth. I believe that there are weapons being smuggled out of here and sold on Vvardenfell."
  • Fort Frostmoth: "We are an Imperial fort, obviously. My soldiers have the ability to be among the best in all the Empire. This island of Solstheim is not the easiest assignment, though, and sometimes it makes the men edgy.
  • Gaea Artoria:
    • "She is one of my most loyal soldiers, and one of my most powerful. I have never seen her bested in combat, and her skill with weapons is legendary here at the fort. Should you encounter any resistance with these smugglers, Artoria would be a valuable ally to have."
    • "A powerful warrior and a loyal soldier. One of the best here at the fort."
    • "I've been told that Artoria has been killed. This is a great loss to Fort Frostmoth, and to the Empire. She will be missed."
  • Mortrag Glacier: "I hope never to see the place again."
  • morale has been low:
    • "Very low. This is not normal. My instinct tells me that there is one among my troops who is fanning the fires of this discontent, and I wish to know who it is. They will never let me know who the culprit is...as their commanding officer, I must regretfully keep some distance between these fine soldiers and myself. They may be willing to speak with you, though. See if you can't gain their trust. If you learn anything, report to me."
    • "As I said, it troubles me. I wish for these soldiers to be the most excellent in the Empire, and I believe that one among them is poisoning the minds of the others. Perhaps it is a reflection on my leadership that this has occurred, but regardless it must end soon."
    • "Hmmm...I imagined that the lack of alcohol might have some effects on the morale, but I didn't ever actually ban it. Personally, I didn't even care about the alcohol; it was the priest, Antonius Nuncius, who was worried about the effect it was having on the men. I disagreed, but the question became moot: our shipments stopped coming in months ago. Speak with the soldiers a bit more, and see if you can find out who the source of this discontent is."
    • "Yes. Please investigate the matter further and report to me."
    • "If there's reason to suspect Antonius, find the proof. If you feel you have it, confront the man himself. Then report to me. Let's do this right, %PCName."
    • "Never mind. I've been informed that one of my priests has been killed. With things like this happening at the fort, I can't worry about a small morale problem."
    • "There's nothing more to say about it."
    • "You say that Antonius Nuncius started this whole thing because he wanted to go home? The twit! I could have had him reassigned, had he just asked me. Now, though, I think he might do his best work here, saving the souls of my men. With the new abundance of liquor at the fort, someone will have to deliver their salvation. Thank you for your help, %PCName. Take these. There are diseases on this island that we have never encountered before. And the weapon may serve you well. Now, on to more fort business."
    • "I believe that business is complete. Thank you for your help."
  • Rieklings: "I have heard of these creatures. Vicious and vile, they say. I hope not to meet them, but rest assured, if they ever disturb this fort, they will pay the price."
  • Saenus Lusius:
    • "Lusius knows more about the daily activities here at the Fort than any other soldier in my command. While not our strongest fighter, he more than makes up for it with his savvy. He may be the best suited to ferret out the smuggling ring."
    • "A wise soldier. One of my best."
    • "I heard that Lusius has been killed. This is a great loss for Fort Frostmoth. It will be difficult to replace such a fine soldier."
  • Smuggling:
    • "I would like you to work with one of my soldiers on this case. There are two available to you, and they are two of the best here at Fort Frostmoth: Saenus Lusius and Gaea Artoria. You'll find Lusius in the General Quarters, and Artoria in the General Quarters, Upper Level. Speak with them and decide which will be your companion. When you have unearthed the smuggling ring, report to me. I leave how you deal with the smugglers to your discretion.
    • "As I've said, please choose either Gaea Artoria or Saenus Lusius to aid you in this endeavor."
    • "It is a dangerous thing here at Fort Frostmoth. Our supplies are limited, and without them, I fear the soldiers will grow even more restless. And what is a fort without its weapons? Useless!"
  • Tharsten Heart-Fang: "I know him all too well. It sounds like the leader of these Skaal was a once-great man who fell to the allure of dark forces."
  • weapons being smuggled:
    • "I've noticed the store of weapons in the armory has been decreasing, and I know there is no official reason for it. My only guess is that someone is smuggling them off Solstheim to be sold on Vvardenfell. I want you to uncover this smuggling ring, and I will provide you with a bit of help."
    • "You've not yet uncovered the smuggling ring? You should get to work."
    • "Gaea Artoria is dead? That's impossible! You had something to do with this!" Goodbye
  • Werewolves: "Terrible beasts, as I have come to learn. Though I thought they had been hunted to extinction, I see now that this is clearly not the case."

Notes[edit]

  • Captain Carius appears in the Dragonborn DLC for Skyrim, where his resurrected body is leading attacks against Raven Rock. This confirms he survived the Hunt, and went on to become a general. He was later killed by the eruption of Red Mountain, after which he was revived by a necromancer.
