Awaken the PastEdit

"Welcome! It gladdens my heart that you have an interest in the history of our land and its people. And you found the notice! Wonderful!
Of course, the House of Orsimer Glories will be even more impressive once all the exhibits have been filled."
The notice said something about ancient relics?
"Ah, I knew that was gold well spent! I've already received twenty visitors thanks to those notes!
But where are my manners? Welcome to the newly established museum of Wrothgar, authorized by the king himself."
The king wants a museum?
"Oh, most certainly! The House of Orsimer Glories has a simple mandate. We're to collect historic treasures related to the Orcs and the Orsimer nation.
But I'm a simple scholar. I have no aptitude when it comes to searching for ancient relics."
Is there something I can do to help?
"I'm not one to turn away an honest helper! But before I ask you to go traipse around in search of historic treasures, why don't you take this downstairs and put it on display?"
What is it?
"It's the Agra Crun, the blood shield. It was recently donated to the museum by an anonymous adventurer, and I can't wait to put it on display.
It will be one of our best attractions!"

Or if you're an Orc and haven't started the quest yet:

"Welcome! It's good to meet an Orc who shows an interest in the history of our land and our people.
Of course, the House of Orsimer Glories will contain much more to examine once all the exhibits are in place."
What is this place?
"This is the newly established museum of Wrothgar, authorized by the king himself!
Our mandate is the collect historic treasures related to the Orcs and the Orsimer nation, but I'm a simple scholar. I can't go searching for ancient relics."
Is there something I can do to help?
"Of course! But before I ask you to go traipse around in search of historic treasures, why don't you take this downstairs and put it on display?
It's the Agra Crun, the blood shield. It was recently donated to the museum by an anonymous adventurer."
I'll take the shield downstairs and place it in its display.
How did you get a job like this?
"You mean as curator? That's an interesting story. I guess you could say that I'm a city Orc. Born and raised in Wayrest, educated at the finest Breton academies.
King Kurog and I met during his travels, and when he offered me this museum I said yes."
You don't look like a city Orc.
"Oh, you mean the clan tattoo? Yes, well, I guess you could say that was a gift of sorts. I toured the various clan strongholds when I first arrived, and Chief Bazrag of the Fharun clan insisted that I allow his wise woman to mark me."
Why does the king want a museum?
"The king wants to preserve and display the culture and history of this land. He believes that a museum is an integral component in the rebuilding of Orsinium and the establishment of the Orsimer kingdom—and I heartily agree!"
What can you tell me about the Agra Crun?
"The name means 'blood shield' in the Orcish tongue. The shield belonged to the legendary shield-wife, Bagrar Troll-Slayer. She distinguished herself as the first protector of Malacath's faithful, during the time of the Balagog blood purge."

If you speak to her before placing the relic, she'll say:

"Place the shield on the proper display downstairs. In the meantime, I'll write out a list of the historic relics we're hoping to secure for the museum.
Come back and speak to me after you're finished and I'll give you the list."

Place the shield in it's rightful place and return to her:

"I appreciate your help. You wouldn't believe how much goes into getting the museum ready for visitors. Just preparing the displays was a tremendous amount of work!
If you're interested, I have a lead on another piece we're seeking. Uzdabikh's Helm."
I'm interested. Where can I find Uzdabikh's Helm?
"Have you heard of the mountain called Sorrow, along the northern border of Wrothgar? According to the Burska clan's oral tradition, the helm was last seen in that area.
Just be careful. The mountain and the land around it is decidedly treacherous."
Tell me about Uzdabikh's Helm.
"This one gives me chills! The helmet was worn by the legendary Orc hero, Uzdabikh, who single-handedly slew one-thousand-and-one Redguards during the Battle of Fharun Pass.
Little known fact—Uzdabikh might have been a woman!"
Is that significant?
"For the time period, I'd say so! And even now, as Wrothgar struggles with the clashing cultures of city and stronghold, examples such as this go a long way toward making the king's point.
Besides, a little scandal always attracts visitors!"

Speak to her before leaving and she'll repeat:

"Remember, the last known location of Uzdabikh's Helm was in the vicinity of Sorrow in northern Wrothgar.
I'm not sure how it got up there, but the oral traditions are surprisingly accurate for such an antiquated system."

Recover the helm and return to her:

"The relic hunter returns! Tell me, was your search for Uzdabikh's Helm successful? There's a display case just waiting to be filled …."
I found Uzdabikh's Helm.
"So it really does exist? Sometimes you never know when you're dealing with myth and legend.
Could I trouble you to take it downstairs and place it in its display? In the meantime, I'll find that list of relics I mentioned the last time we spoke."
"Just head downstairs and place the helmet in the proper display.
When you're finished, come back and we can discuss your future involvement with the museum."

Do as she asks and she'll have a job for you:

"It's so nice to have a little help around here. Thanks for finding that historic treasure and setting it on its display.
But this is only the beginning! The wilds of Wrothgar are brimming with all sorts of important antiquities."
Is there anything else I can do to help?
"Indubitably! You've got a talent for relic hunting, and I'd be remiss if I didn't take advantage of that.
Here's a list of the relics I believe await us in the wilds of Wrothgar. Find them, bring them here, and the museum will reward you handsomely."
"Remember to check the list. We have very specific needs here at the House of Orsimer Glories, distinctive portions of history that we want to put on display."

A Cold Wind From the MountainEdit

Once you have found the other artifacts around Wrothgar, Umutha will tell you about another possible exhibit for the museum:

"Good, good! You've done such a fantastic job filling these walls. The House of Orsimer Glories is finally worthy of its name!
There's just one final piece … if you don't mind braving the wilderness."
What did you have in mind?
"I'm not entirely certain, of course—one can never be certain of these things—but I think I've discovered the location of a major relic.
If I'm correct, it belonged to King Torug, founder of Orsinium, and creator of its Bear-Rider cavalry!"
How does that concern the House of Orsimer Glories?
"King Torug's bear—Coldwind—was a mountain among hills. When King Torug died, Torug entombed her remains in a cave long thought lost. Until now, according to this report!
So? Will you retrieve Coldwind's skull for the House of Orsimer Glories?"
I'll recover Coldwind's skull.
"Coldwind was the largest bear ever seen in Wrothgar. Legends say that by taming the great beast, King Torug bent all the bears of the land to his will.
Whether true or not, he was all but invincible on Coldwind's back."

Once you have retrieved the Skull from the mountain, you can return to Umutha:

"You've done it, haven't you? Coldwind's skull—do you have it?
I found Coldwind's skull. Here you are.
"Wonderful! And I do believe the prophecy is fulfilled. Did I … forget the mention the prophecy?
Ahem. "Coldwind shall return in the hour of Wrothgar's greatest need, to a hero worthy of King Torug's legacy." Seems rather direct, as things go."

Once you have completed the quest, speak to her again to hear her say:

"Thank you for all you've done. We'll need to open another wing before we even think about expanding our collection!
Hmm. I wonder if the king would consider it .…"
