Allies for Bruma

Though this quest is optional, completing it entirely serves several benefits. Primarily, the allies gained here can be a great aid during the 'Defense of Bruma' quest. Perhaps more importantly, the skill levels and equipment that you are sure to gain while completing this quest would likely be a benefit as well.

This quest entails traveling to each of the major cities to request aid for the city of Bruma, which is currently under threat of a full-scale attack. Of course, acquiring this help is not as simple as just asking politely. In every case, you'll have to close an Oblivion Gate that has opened up near the walls of the city before the count or countess will agree to lend a hand.

In some cases, you may find that there is more than one Oblivion Gate that could be considered a direct threat to the city. If this is ever the case, you need only enter and shut the gate that is marked by the active quest marker for the count or countess to agree to spare some soldiers.

You'll need to visit the Imperial City, Kvatch, Anvil, Skingrad, Chorrol, Leyawiin, Bravil and Cheydinhal. Travel to each city in any order you like, as order has no effect on the outcome of this quest.

See the count or countess of each major city about assisting Bruma.

High Chancellor Ocato of the Imperial City is unwilling to spare his troops for the sake of Bruma, but you'll have better luck with the other cities. Provided you have completed the 'Battle for Castle Kvatch' side quest, Savlian Matius in Castle Kvatch will be more than willing to enlist a few of his men for the cause.

Speak to Countess Millona Umbranox in Anvil about aid for Bruma. You'll need to shut the Oblivion Gate that has opened up outside of the city before the countess will agree to spare some soldiers to help Bruma. You know the drill; get to the top of the tower and grab the Sigil Stone there to seal the gate. With the gate outside of Anvil closed, speak to Umbranox again; ask for aid again and this time, she'll be happy to oblige.

In Chorrol, you'll need to see Countess Arriana Valga about aid for Bruma. Shut the Oblivion Gate outside of Chorrol and ask the countess again for support to strengthen the garrison. Count Marius Caro is the one to see in Leyawiin. Shut the Oblivion Gate outside the city and request aid for Bruma from Marius Caro again to garner more support for Bruma.

Travel to Castle Skingrad to speak with the count there. You'll need to speak to one of his stewards in the County Hall about seeing him. Find Mercator Hosidus and ask him about aiding Bruma. If you Mercator Hosidus is not in the hall, speak to Hal-Liurz instead. The steward will then leave to fetch Janus Hassildor, who is the count of Skingrad. Before he will send aid to Bruma, he asks that you close the Oblivion Gate that has opened up outside of Skingrad. Speak to him again with the gate closed to gain his support.

Speak to one of the stewards in the Castle Skingrad County Hall about aid for Bruma to meet with the count.

Speak to Count Regulus Terentius in Bravil. As with the others, he too requests the open Oblivion Gate outside his city be closed. Speak to Regulus again after completing the task to gain the support of his guard captain, Viera Leruso.

You'll need to speak to Count Andel Indarys in Cheydinhal. There is a side quest attached to this Oblivion Gate in which you must find Farwil, the count's son. This quest is called 'The Wayward Knight.' Look for detailed walkthrough of this quest under the 'Side Quests' section of this guide. Once the gate has been closed, speak to Count Indarys again to have him send his soldiers to Bruma.
