story of Redguard begins as you, Cyrus, search for your sister,
and ends up telling the story of the Reguard rebellion of 2E864.
From the moment Stros M'kai is in sight, Cyrus becomes engaged
in the troubles of his homeland. Run-ins with both the Empire and
the Reguard fanatics, the "Restless League," convince
you that your sister has gotten herself into serious trouble. Eventually,
you butt heads with Imperial Governor Richton, find out Iszara is
part of the Restless League, and get sent to the death-trap ridden
Catacombs. Escaping, you then contact the League and meet with their
leader, a cautious and enigmatic Redguard named Basil. You learn
that Iszara stole a soulgem (with Prince A'tor's soul inside) from
the League and made off to Stros M'kai to try and restore the Crowns
to power. Basil tells you, "find the soulgem and you'll find
return to Stros M'kai and learn from a Khajiit that Iszara had attempted
to take the soulgem to N'gasta the Necromancer - the only sorcerer
powerful enough to use it and restore Prince A'tor. But Iszara went
to the Necromancer without precaution and ended up with her own
soul stolen and the soulgem in the Empire's hands. You find the
Flask of Lillandril, use it to vanquish N'gasta and restore Iszara,
and join Iszara's cause.
then recover the gem from the Empire's dragon and find a kinder,
gentler sorcerer who can use the soulgem's magic, and then gather
the League together to witness the restoration of Prince A'tor.
The soul, however, does not go into the Prince's body but into his
sword instead. Though the League becomes disheartened, you rally
them, taking up your sword to fight the Governor and the Imperials
yourself. As the League retakes the harbor of Stros M'kai, you enter
the Palace through a secret entrance and catch up to Richton just
as the Imperials are making their escape. You defeat the Governor
in combat and win the day, igniting a revolution that spreads across
the rest of Hammerfell.
