    • Or these or the ones listed here but if only a chosen few can hear the Night Mother how can Listener be a rank and doesn't the Keeper care for her corpses so thats more a job than a rank.

    • Listeners become a rank higher than non-listeners, and I'd say Keeper is both a rank and a job, you wouldn't wanna give the lowest ranking guy the task of Keeper, give it to someone you can trust, someone who is skilled and has proven themselves worthy of caring for the nightmother.

      I agree.

    • Yes but I feel these are more given, rather than earned. As the dragonborn, you do close to nothing to be named the listener.

      That's because to be the Listener means to hear the voice of the Night Mother, it's who she choses so that is the only rank in which is not given but earned in what ever way the Night Mother feels. As far as Speakers and below, they are given ranks by their superiors based on merit or any other methods they choose to use.

    • Also the dark brotherhood during Skyrim is but a shadow of its former self. The only known sanctuary left in Tamriel is the one just outside of Falkreath. Much of the traditions were lost until the night mother names you the first listener in a very long time.

    • Although technically silencers are apart of the black hand they have no real power other then being assassins for the hand in the case of keeper this role only exists while there is no listner there is 4 speakers 4 silencers and a listner
