With Shivering Isles all done and dusted (um, bar all the side quests of course), I’ve decided to mop up the remaining questlines in the main game. First up, was going back the the Dark Brotherhood.
I was given the task of killing an elf in the Imperial City, who was pretty easy to do in. He spend a few hours imbibing Skooma in an abandoned house, so all I had to do was find him there.
Then, I was sent out to a remote fort where I had to replace a bloke’s medicine with some poison. Since I’d made myself a load of great sneak clothes and chameleon jewellry, as well as concocted a 30 second invisibility spell, it was really very easy.
After that, I had to attend a party with five other people in a house in Skingrad, and kill them all. This was also easy, as I just waited until they were alone and then sneak attacked them for instant killage.
Finally (for now), I as required to bump off a retired guard using the Rose of Sithis arrow. I was warned that I’d need to fire it at him whilst he was out of his armour, which I thought was going to be a pain, but in fact was simple as he was swimming without it when I first found him. Thwip! I then needed to remove his finger (mmm, nice) and plant it in his replacement’s desk drawer as a warning not to mess with the Dark Brotherhood. Sadly, I was seen, so I had to make a run for it – and then found the guy at the Imperial City waterfront who could get me off the hook. Phew! Achievement Unlocked!
