Can I join the DB without... Spoilers!

Without killin Grelod the Kind?

Heard I will be contacted by the DB for just killing any named innocent npc.

Is this true?

Not true. It was that way in Oblivion, but not here.

Look, for the last time: Kirby has explained it over and over!

The question is why would you want spare her? ***** had it coming.

Nope. You have to kill Grelod to complete Innocence Lost which is a prerequisite to joining the DB (assuming no glitches exist to finish this quest). Even starting "Destroy the Dark Brotherhood" requires killing Grelod. Killing an innocent NPC to join was part of Oblivion.

Just curious, why don't you want to kill Grelod?

Cuz I'm role playing and it makes no sense to take orders from a little kid.

Anyway to kill her super stealthy without being seen by the little kids or anything?

I can't just find the db hideout and go in and start questing for them that way?

Your not taking orders from him.

He performed The Black Sacrament and thus wanted to summon The Dark Brotherhood.

You will learn why his pleas had been ignored later.

You don't even need to meet Aventus to kill Grelod. You can just walk into the orphanage, see her talking to the kids, and decide right there "this woman shouldn't stay alive".

I didn't edit my sig this time, but I'm trying out the sig rotation thing.
