604. Revelations beneath Belkarth

604 (a). Revelations beneath Belkarth

Sometimes one must trust instinct over reason, for whilst at times lucidity will betray you, your heart will not. When Hara, the leader of the Star-Gazers is abducted before our eyes, it leads to revelations of secrets that were foolishly kept, for rational reasons.

604 (b). Revelations beneath Belkarth

It was the warrior not of this time, Titus Valerius, who remembered that there was a secret Nedic temple buried deep beneath Belkarth itself; its entrance sealed by the self-proclaimed Emperor Tarish-Zi back in his own time. At the lake to the south of town the Breton conjurer Kelmen Locke once again proves his worth; his arcane intuition helping to unlock the puzzle to reveal another entrance to the sunken ruins.

We three soon find ourselves battling our way through members of the Scaled Court who had somehow infiltrated the corridors of Reinhold’s Retreat. Eventually we come upon a large chamber and found yet another Apex Stone. This one however had a giant ethereal snake coiled about it, and bound in magical chains before it was Hara.

604 (f). Revelations beneath Belkarth

During our violent encounter with the aspect of the Serpent, Hara revealed herself to be none-other then the Celestial Thief. Perhaps it is true what the philosophers tell us, that all the secrets of Nirn worth knowing are indeed hidden in plain sight.

It may have been Celestial hubris that prevented Hara from putting her faith in her only allies, but hiding her Apex Stone beneath the town, and her true identity from us, could have cost us Belkarth, and eventually Craglorn itself.

604 (j). Revelations beneath Belkarth

Our hearts may not betray us, but alas unlike mortals, the Celestials have no heart to trust.
