Join the Dark Brotherhood (SPOILERS)

#1cardicianPosted 11/10/2011 6:28:19 AM
Just curious if anyone can tell me how to join the Dark Brotherhood? It was very easy in Oblivion and I loved their quests. I tried the same thing in Skyrim (slaughtered a random person) but got no visit. Anyone joined yet who can pass on the info? Appreciate it.

BUMP I've read you have to talk to a guy in the Rorikstead tavern, but I cannot for the life of me find Rorikstead.

You got to one of the major cities(which one escapes me) and you'll get a quest about a bunch of murders. You'll find a kid standing over a body chanting for the dark brother hood do his quest and you can join the dark brotherhood.

I found that quest actually. Wondered if that might be the case. It just seemed an odd way to join the Brotherhood by basically stealing one of their hits out from under them.

Also, that city is Windhelm I believe, where Ulfric is the Jarl (or if that's not Windhelm then the whatever the far eastern city is).

To join The Dark Brotherhood in Skyrim you have to go to the hold of Riften and go to the Honorhall Orphanage and watch Grelod the Kind yell at a group of children. Then you must ask the kids about Aventus Aretino. The orphans will tell you he ran away back home to the hold of Windhelm. Then go break into his house and pretend your from the Dark Brotherhood. Then Aventus wants you to go kill Grelod so you must go back to the Honorhall Orphanage in Riften and assassinate her. Then leave that Riften and go to another hold, then go in a building then come out and there is an NPC named "Currier" who gives you a note that reads like "we know" and had a black palm print on it. Then go to sleep and you wake up in an abandoned shack facing a woman from the Dark Brotherhood. Then you kill one of three innocent people and then she gives you the location of the sanctuary and you are a member of the Dark Brotherhood.
