Zibaran is a Redguard merchant found in the town of Belkarth. When spoken to, he will comment, "That's the third caravan this week. Besides what's happening at Elinhir and the giant crater outside, we'll be out of business by the end of the year."
You can ask Zibaran about the above-mentioned problems:
- What's going on? / What else can you tell me about Craglorn?
- "This road is the only thoroughfare that connects Bangkorai and Cyrodiil. And these so-called "Celestials" are making a mess of it.
We've appealed to the Daggerfall Covenant for help, but they're … distracted."
- What do you mean, distracted?
- "That damned Alliance War. Troops need to get to Cyrodiil, and the Covenant's got its hands full protecting its own supply lines. Or so they say."
- Is there anything I can do to help?
- "The worst is near Elinhir. Damned mages fighting each other, spilling out onto the road ….
But there's also some kind of shimmering giant rock-thing that blasted a huge crater in the middle of Craglorn. It's damn creepy, whatever it is."
- Tell me about Elinhir. / What can you tell me about Elinhir? / What's happening in Elinhir?
- "Word is, the mages that run the place are at each others' throats.
You ask me, it was inevitable. Inviting renegade mages to live there was just asking for trouble. Luckily, most of the citizens got out before things got really bad."
- Tell me about the huge crater. / Tell me about this huge crater.
- "Some say it's the gods displeasure, fired from Aetherius to punish us. Others say it's Daedric. Still others think it's the Celestial Mage's staff, flung from the heavens.
Whatever it is, it's bad news. I'd stay clear of it."
