    Join the Dark Brotherhood

    Finding the Dark Brotherhood is as tricky as it sounds, but not anymore. We’re not entirely sure how we got this into our miscellaneous objectives, but we did and if I recall correctly, it was from asking bar tenders rumours about the region. When you find the right barman, although you could probably go right to the house, you’ll have to find a boy called Aventus Aretino who can be found in the Arentino Residence in Windhelm. Speak to the boy, complete the “Innocence Lost” quest and then sometime shortly after a courier will give you a note saying “We Know.” Then just sleep, you know the score with the Dark Brotherhood if you played Oblivion.

  • "who needs enemies?" This quest line might mean more to me than anything else on the disc (I'll like that too though)
  • The Dark Brotherhood are back! I can't wait to do these quests.
  • Amen #2
  • It looks like the Dark Brotherhood has 3 achievements of it's own (this one, Until Death, and Hail Sithis!)! I was gonna join the Dark Brotherhood regardless but now its pretty much become necessary. :D
  • oh shit
  • Thats all I needed to see "Join the dark brotherhood" that just made my day
  • tf2 achievement :D
  • Haha actually reminded of the TF2 achievement :) nice to see DB returning.
  • I might just do the darkbrotherhood over and over again... but then again i havent played Skyrim yet so i dont know if The Dark Brotherhood will be as good as in Oblivion.
  • Am so gonna start becoming the darkbrotherhood once i get it. ;)
  • its going to good i hop the qrest are good and fun to do i hop u get good rewords
  • @11 I Hope* you don't miss any school because of this game. The quests* might be* too long for you. But the rewards* will be worth it... lol
  • i hope there is a "new" lucian in this one. my favorite character from oblivion
  • aaaaah my favorite :D!!!!
  • "SANGUINE MY BROTHER" "SHADOW HIDE YOU" AND MY FAVORITE QUOTE IS FROM THE VAMPIRE WHOSE NAME IS VERY FRENCH "SPILL SOME BLOOD FOR ME BROTHER" RAWR I CANT WAIT THE DARK BROTHERHOOD TAKES PRIORITY FOR ME I DO WONDER HOWEVER, WILL THEY BE DOING AN OBLIVION JOIN/INITIATION OR A WHOLE NEW CONCEPT ON IT ENTIRELY. IN OBLIVION YOU JUST KILLED SOME RANDOM NUB SAUCE NPC AND THEN SLEEP AND LUCIAN OF EPIC TOWN PAYS YOU A VISIT... SO IT MAKES ME WONDER HOW THEY WILL HANDLE THIS I WOULD GUESS THE SAME WAY DUE TO THE NATURE OF THE DARK BROTHERHOOD ..... "SHADOW HIDE YOU"
  • @11: In the latest Game Informer there's an preview of a writers experience with the game and in it he spends most of his time trying to contact the Dark Brotherhood. Read it to see how he does!
  • AWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW YEAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH. My favorite part about Oblivion was undoubtedly the Dark Brotherhood.
  • will they reload my oblivion character because she is now like the boss of the Dark Brotherhood!!?? =p
  • Dark Brotherhood was always my favorite.
  • While on your travels in Skyrim, talk to the inn keeper at Granitehall and ask for rumors. He wil then tell you that there is a child trying to summon the dark brotherhood in Windhelm.
  • @#20 Thanks. That was the only helpfull coment here ;)
  • @18 they might but they wont be alive because TES V is 200 years after the events in Oblivion Shadow hide you all my brothers and sisters
  • What a perfect way to start Dark brotherhood life. Remember how they say that you don't find them, but they find you? SPOILER (After the boy quest, go to sleep, and you'll get one of the best moments in your gaming life) SPOILER
  • Remember that badass horse that you got from doing all the dark brotherhood quests and not to mention all the cool shit you got during those quests.
  • Easiest way I have found to do this is go to winhelm to the right just before the Palace of the Kings theres an alley go down it and you will go under a house the entrance is on the right, its called the Aretino residence, pick the lock and speak to the child!
  • Where is this "Granitehall"?
  • Its not called Granitehall anymore they changed the name to Rorikstead in the final release of the game, easiest way to do it is the way I have outlined above.
  • forgot to mention but i did it your way, thanks.
  • Yeh thanks for that #27
  • I finished the first Dark Brother Mission. How do you get additinal Dark Brother quests? Thanks.
  • i did that first mission with the boy, but how do i actually join the dark brotherhood?..he just thinks im part of it
  • I'm having a problem with this, I did the quest for the boy, handed it in, he said thanks and gave me that crappy plate. I went to the inn, slept there for a few hours, nothing! I then slept for a full 24 hours and still nothing... This is not good for me, I need to join damnit!!
  • You have to receive the letter first after killing the orphanage lady. Once you get the letter rest up and you'll start their missions to join their ranks. Hope this helps!
  • I have the limited edition strategy guide, do not sleep in Windhelm and you do not need the note from the courier, but I suggest on getting it. best note in the game lol hope this helps
  • havent even seen them yet... :/
  • I went to whiterun after soon the boys quest went to sleep in my house and woke up in a seedy cabin with a member of the brotherhood Sat on a bookcase awesome =]
  • i killed the dark brotherhood lady and now i think i'm screwed for the achievement
  • I am trying to join the Dark Brotherhood. I completed the quest involving the Arentino and the orphanage. I received a letter shortly afterwords. I've heard that resting initiates the DB quests after that, but since I am a Werewolf, does my lack of Resting Bonuses affect my chances/ability of joining?
  • @aAnStar10 No, I have the werewolf blood as well.. I finished the quest with the boy. Then went to my breezehome in Whiterun.. slept there for 9 hours and woke up with a sexy Dark Brotherhood Lady... All good. Happened really quick.
  • By the way, I never even got a letter... Im just hoping nothing with the Dark Brotherhood will cause problems with the main story line.. I have yet to finish it... :-
  • Good run through very easy
  • Best... Questline...Ever!!!
  • How can I join the hood?
  • I have this noe with "we know", what next?
