Dialogue[edit]

The Thin Ones[edit]

Before quest:

"Greetings, stranger. Visitors to Stillrise Village are rare. Have you spoken to our chief? Her dwelling is at the center of town."

After Suhlak reveals the undead curse:

"You're the one who killed the Worm Cult's lapdogs. Chieftain Suhlak told you the Worm Cult stole the soul gem array, yes? Once they discover its secrets, they'll enslave our entire village."
Chieftain Suhlak said you had a plan.
"Yes, if it isn't too late already. When Clavicus Vile cursed us with this hollow existence, he placed our spirits in the soul gem array. It must be recovered."
I'll recover the soul gem array.
"Easier said than done. The energies protecting the relic kill living creatures who touch it.
But there's a way. Make an offering to Clavicus Vile and the soul gem array will think you one of us. Then you can recover it safely from the Worm Cult."
Where would I make an offering? What would I offer? or How can I safely recover the soul gem array?
"Take this totem. War Chief Helushk can let you inside the Daedric Prince's temple. Once inside, place the totem upon the blood fountain as an offering to Clavicus Vile."
I'll speak with War Chief Helushk.
"I fear there's little time before the Worm Cult discovers the secrets of the soul gem array. Be quick, before they add us to their ranks.
Yet another benefit of this damnable curse."
How did the Worm Cult steal the soul gem array without dying themselves?
"The cultists forced their undead thralls to carry it away. Such will be the future of Stillrise Village if you don't recover the soul gem array."

You can then ask about the curse:

Tell me about the curse.
"Decades ago, the Knahaten flu swept through the land. The children were first. By Z'en, I can still see the bodies...
But Z'en couldn't save us. So at Chieftain Suhlak's behest, I prayed to Clavicus Vile. He bestowed this mockery of salvation upon us."
Without the curse, would your village have survived?
"You call this survival? To never again taste guar-flesh, nor feel a lover's touch? We are but shadows in the water.
Some feel the curse is a Daedra's cruel jest, yet I thank Clavicus Vile for a vital lesson. Immortality is the true curse, you see?"
Why can't you retrieve the artifact yourself? or Why don't you retrieve the artifact yourselves?
"With the soul gem array in the hands of the Worm Cult, they can influence us through our curse. They could force us to surrender, attack one another... any number of awful things.
But they don't possess your soul. They hold no power over you."
"I fear there's little time before the Worm Cult discovers the secrets of the soul gem array. Be quick, before they add us to their ranks.
Yet another benefit of this damnable curse."

If you speak to him after receiving the Curse of Stillrise, he'll say:

"Have no fear. The offering was intended to pique the Daedric Prince's interest. It worked, perhaps better than expected."

If you speak to him after recovering the soul gem array, he'll say:

"You recovered the soul gem array, yes? Then inform Chieftain Suhlak, so Stillrise Village can finally achieve its salvation."

The Bargain's End[edit]

Before speaking to War Chief Helushk, he'll have this to say:

"The Worm Cult nearly unlocked the secrets of the soul gem array. If they could get their hands on it, so could anyone else.
This torment will never end, unless you're the one to end it."
What do you think I should do with the soul gem array?
"Destroy it, so Clavicus Vile's grip upon us ends. Our bones may collapse, but our spirits will finally be free."
How would I destroy the soul gem array?
"Clavicus Vile provided the means on the day he cursed us. Deep in the Daedric ruins burn two braziers: one of ice, the other of fire.
Placing the soul gem array into the Fires of Destruction will destroy it."

You can either agree with Chirah or tell him you consider Helushk's proposal:

I'll destroy it and free Stillrise Village from the curse.
I need to speak with War Chief Helushk before I decide.

If you tell War Chief Helushk that you will destroy the soul gem array, Chirah will yell and run out the hut:

Shaman Chirah : "You can't be so cruel. This is eternal torment!"
Shaman Chirah : "My acolytes won't allow you to curse us with life!"

During the battle inside the Odious Chapel, he'll say:

Shaman Chirah : "You can't condemn us to life!"
Shaman Chirah : "It's not too late! Destroy the soul gem array and free us from torment!"
Shaman Chirah : "We won't let you condemn us!"
Shaman Chirah : "I'll end our curse even it means your death!"

After preserving the array and returning to the village, he'll have risen and found in his hut:

"You trapped us like this forever. Keep away from me."

If the soul gem array is destroyed, he'll be in the center of the village with Chieftain Suhlak, where he'll say:

"It's over. It's finally over."

Upon completion of the quest:

Soon … I'll be with you soon, Valu …."
