Who done it? (Dark brotherhood spoilers)

#1NepharenPosted 3/29/2013 6:59:28 PM
Finally decided to do the dark brotherhood quest line again after about a year and am working on one of the first quests "with friends like these".

I am fully aware that this does not matter in terms of the quest but for argument sake, who do you think actually has a contract out on them and what in the game suggests this? Uesp states that Babette alludes to who is actually the intended victim but I don't recall this conversation.

The last couple of times I did this quest I didn't think too much about this since I knew it didn't matter and either mauled all three of them as a werewolf or just the lady since I found her the most annoying at the time.

I did it, but don't tell anyone.

Took me a second to realize who you were talking about.

Eh I don't know, I just kill all three of them...why take a chance right?

Also, lets face it...

Nord...

Khajiit...

One of these things is not like the other, one of these things just doesn't belong.

IDK but if you use the clairvoyance spell it points to the woman.

....I've never thought to do that before.... that is outstanding and I am going to try it now.

I doubt any of them did. Astrid just wanted you to prove you'd kill someone just because she told you to. This isn't the old Brotherhood, where there was some semblance of a sense of honor (twisted though it was).

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

Astrid flat out tells you that none of them actually have a contract out on them. She simply wants to see if you would kill on command.

How many of the victims I kill depends on how evil I'm roleplaying my character. I either kill all three or just the khajiit. I have nothing against khajiit but by his own admission many people want him dead. He just seems like the most likely candidate.
