The Doomcrag is an Ayleid tower located in northwestern Rivenspire, northwest of Shornhelm. Some believe that the tower was originally built to be a focus of Aurbic power, much like other towers across Tamriel, but it came to be the home of the Light of Life, a relic which helped plants grow and healed illnesses. Following a bloody conflict between the Ayleid settlers and the original inhabitants of the area, the relic was tainted, and became the Lightless Remnant, a beacon of death.

– Detailed Walkthrough –

After witnessing Verandis Ravenwatch remove the Lightless Remnant from Nirn, return to Shornhelm Castle. There, you will be greeted by a number of citizens and nobles of Rivenspire, including Darien Gautier, Skordo the Knife, Countess Eselde and Lady Aurine Tamrith, Baron Alard Dorell and Queen Maraya. Depending on your previous actions, the attendants may include Heloise Menoit and Lieutenant Fairfax, Arlie, Allan, and Krisandra Edrald, Dulkhi and/or Federic Seychelle, Constable Agazu, and Captain Janeve Tamrith.

Standing in front of the thrones is High King Emeric. Talk to Emeric and he will tell you that with the Montclair threat gone, he needs to choose a single noble to rule Rivenspire, either Baron Dorell or Countess Tamrith. He asks for your counsel on the matter, and suggests you talk to the two candidates before making a decision.

Talk to the two possible rulers to hear why they think they should be chosen over the other. Countess Tamrith will tell you that while she thinks the Baron is good man, he is “dangerously short-tempered” and “far too quick to act”. Her first priority if crowned queen will be to “[help] the people of Rivenspire recover”. Baron Dorell will tell you that while he respects Countess Tamrith, she lacks the “decisive leadership” and “firm hand” required to rule Rivenspire. He says that his first priority as king will be to rebuild Rivenspire’s defenses and recruit new members of the guard.

Make your decision and inform High King Emeric.
