15th of Morningstar – Funeral for the Imperial Emperor Titus Mede III
South Winds’ Prayer Harvest: Holiday in Cyrodiil to celebrate plant life [no plants are to be harmed that day]; free healings performed on this day
The adventurers are asked to meet with the Captain of the Imperial Guard in the Talos Plaza District after the ceremonies. When they reach the body of the Emperor to pay their individual respects, they notice that, in addition to his fine attire and royal jewelry, the Emperor has a particular look: one that reads across his face, saying that he knew when and how we would die.
Quest: “Paying” Respects
When the adventurers meet with the Captain, he explains that the Emperor’s body needs to be taken from the Imperial City to Bravil, resting for a night in Faregil. They will be accompanied by the Empress, the royal children, and a following of squires. They will be compensated for their success and are granted room and board free of charge in the Talos Plaza District while they prepare for the journey.
Quest: The Gray Fox
While preparing for the journey, the group notices wanted posters of a thief known as “The Gray Fox”. No one is really sure what he/she looks like or what race he/she is. The two heists that made them infamous took place in Valenwood and Elsweyr. They were last seen in the Talos Plaza District and is probably headed towards Cyrodiil. A reward of 1000GP is offered for capture.
