'Pity Dagoth Ur and the Sixth House. All they do, all they are is foul and evil, but they began in brightness and honor, and the cause of their fall was their loyal service to you, Lord Nerevar.' — Peakstar

House Dagoth or simply the Sixth House is the defunct sixth Great House of the Chimer led by Voryn Dagoth, later known as Dagoth Ur. All records of the house's existence were destroyed following the Battle of Red Mountain and its members were either killed or absorbed into the remaining houses. Unbeknownst to all, Lord Dagoth had survived and spent centuries slowly building his strength and influence from within Red Mountain. This culminated with Dagoth's attempt to re-create the Dwemer god-construct Numidium in order to overthrow the Tribunal and conquer Morrowind.

Actions within the GameEdit

The game starts in 3E 427. The Player's shipment to Morrowind is probably the Emperor's response to the Sixth House's assassinations. In that case, the Empire likely sought House Dagoth as the responsible party, learned their history and accompanying myths, and acted to exploit those myths. A parcel in the game indicates that the Emperor found these myths extremely convincing on the advice of several counselors.

During the Player's time on Vvardenfell, the Sixth House gains strength in two ways. First, as the Player levels, an increasing percentage of the creatures carry the blight disease. Secondly, as the Player pursues the Main Quest, Dagoth Ur's dreams spread, creating more Sixth House dreamers throughout the game. Both of these effects boost the nominal strength of House Dagoth, but other than having more blighted beasts and Sixth House dreamers to confront, very few game effects result.

The Sixth House is destroyed when the Player defeats Dagoth Ur, by shattering Kagrenac's enchantments on Lorkhan's Heart. To do this, the Player has to use the basic physical principle of resonance, hitting the heart several times with Sunder and Keening. The Heart itself appears to be destroyed when its enchantments are destroyed. It is not known whether this means the actual destruction of the heart itself; Vivec merely says that the enchantments enabling the use of the heart are destroyed.

Dagoth Ur's progress with Sunder and Keening is unknown. It was not sufficient to create Akulakhan. However, Dagoth Ur claimed that he was a god. Furthermore, he had one of Vivec's godly properties -- when he was killed, he reappeared right back at his central focus, and no time appeared to have elapsed at all.

This suggests he found a way to wield Sunder and Keening for the brief steps required to do this. Of the three steps, the first two do not require extended contact with Sunder and Keening; it is not known whether the third step does.

However, it is also possible that Dagoth Ur's research, even possibly before obtaining Sunder and Keening, was sufficient to confer that sort of immortality. In addition, it might have happened even earlier, during the War of the First Council.
