Vaermina's Gambit
Finishes Quest Journal Entry
I have the Duskstone, so I can enter Emeric's Dream.
Objective: Enter High King Emeric's Dream
High King Emeric's dream is a nightmare vision of Wayrest, filled with chaos and destruction. I must find the king and help him escape.

High King Emeric stands before the guillotine, surrounded by rioting citizens. If I speak to him, perhaps I can wake him from this dream.
