Operations and functioning[edit | edit source]

"Yes, an interesting group. Effective. Fear and mystery are powerful tools for them. There have been kings that have been rumored to utilize their services, but that is only rumor, of course."
Fedris Hler[src]

The Dark Brotherhood is a group of assassins that is located all over Tamriel, little is known about the group of assassins and those who seek to learn their secrets end up dead or missing. The Dark Brotherhood survives using blackmail, extortion, and murder to intimidate anybody who might become a threat. The Brotherhood is a sect that broke apart from the Morag Tong. Because of this, the Morag Tong has sworn to kill their former brothers and all who join the Dark Brotherhood to punish them for the treachery.

Interactions[edit | edit source]

Hunt the Dark Brotherhood[edit | edit source]

The Dark Brotherhood is first encountered when one of its assassins attacks the Nerevarine in their sleep. This prompts an investigation which eventually leads Nerevarine to Mournhold.

That is unless you murder people in the beginning of the game, or before your encounter with Nerevarine. This may lead to The Dark Brotherhood being hired to come after you, and they may appear when you try to sleep. You will then have to kill the assassin, or manage to outrun him, to progress further in the game.

Armor[edit | edit source]

The armor found on assassins of the Dark Brotherhood is lightweight, the heaviest piece weighing only six pounds. Its appearance is dark, and each piece has a basic armor rating of 30. Each piece has a moderate to high value, making them a decent source of income for early players.
