  • I mean, he was a bad bard, but how is that enough to warrant calling in the Dark Brotherhood? Much less multiple people doing so.

    Poor Lurbuk: Wherever my blade may have sent you in death, may you have a captive audience.

    • I felt bad. Say what you will about his music, he seemed an amiable sort. Not deserving of death, at least.

    • Well apart from being a lousy Bard, I thought the kill contract was because he dabble's in more nefarious activities. He was probably with a female he shouldn't have been, or he does some thieving or spying on the side. Explain's why he's not a good Bard, it's just his cover. ; )

    • I really did, he was my homy.  He'd pull out his little drum and I'd do a kitty dance.  But then I ripped his throat out with my claws. It made me cry.

    • killing Lurbuk was hularious

    • I do, I really do. :( I don't join the Dark Brotherhood anymore because it broke my heart to kill him.

    • He might have reasons other than being a bad bard. Anyway, I felt nothing wrong killing him, he looked kinda like he could not be a bard and he was using it as disguise. I kinda agree with Conan that he did something else to piss people off

      The only ones I felt bad for throughout the questline was Veezara, thats pretty much it. Even Narfi dosen't get my sympathy, for all you know he was a bandit lord before going cray cray.

      Come on guys, you job as an assassin is not to question your employer and kill efficiently!

    • Lurbuk may have been a really bad bard, but I don't think killing him was necessary. Just run him out of town :P

      Although, I wouldn't say I'd regret it. The only person I do regret killing is Narfi. Who the hell would want to kill a beggar who pretty much lost everything? I meant, that's just low.

      I think at one point Wilhelm said that it would be a good/merciful thing to relive him of his suffering. I´m pretty sure he hired the contract.

    • He brought it upon himself. A natural order exists that all things are a part of. Mine was to be the Dragonborn, Harbinger of the Companions, Arch-Mage of the College of Winterhold, Guildmaster of the Thieves Guild, and the Listener of the Dark Brotherhood. I don't know what Lurbuk's place was, but it was NOT being a bard. Instead of accepting that, he defied the natural order and frustration and agony to all that listened to him. I don't know how many contracts were put out for him, but I can practically guaruntee that at the bottom of them, at least one of them is signed by "Fate".

    • Killing the happiest person in all of Tamriel... who else would give out this quest to kill him just for being an Orc? I daresay you don't get much Nazi-er than this.

    • He got the best song ever. So funny of hearing him sing his shadow song.

    • I'd admit, it was a tragic experience when he went to the Void long ago, but alas, it is life. It was meant to happen, and we should respect that. It might help if you thought to yourself, "Well, somehow the gods would have killed him anyway. I should be grateful I was the only one to spend his very last moments with him. He was rewarded with a clean passing, and if I didn't do something about it, he might have suffered a terrible tragedy." Hopefully this cleared some sorrow about Lurbuk, and I hope he rests in piece.

      Killing Narfi just ends his suffering.

    • All the Darkbrotherhood kills are terrible (except the vampire and Mede)... all the others I wish I could find the people who put out the hit.... I'm sure Sithis wouldn't mind xD

    • I didn't feel much for any of my targets, after going into the "professional assassin" mindset. Its something you have to do, anyway. However, it felt bad seeing Veezara dead, as well as not being able to save anyone even though you could.

        Loading editor
    • I used the resurrect command on all the civilian targets afterwards.

      And Lurbuk is nowhere near being skyrim's worst bard. Karita, the bard in Dawnstar, is terrible.

    • Yo i felt badly for killing some people in these contracts, like the homeless man at Ivarstead, i conjured revived him and killed him so that his body would turn to ash and it wouldnt just lay there in a disrespectful manner. But Lurbuk was the last straw, i remembering promising myself to avenge all these wrongful deaths at the end of the darkbrotherhood questline. So when i finished it, i went to back to the sanctuary, Astrid said "Hello brother", i said, "Goodbye "sister".". I went invisible took out my dagger (legendary) and set  her essential status to 0, went behind her, and slit her throat my (sneaking skill was to the max, thanks for training me to be an assassin Astrid, lol!). I then proceeded to take out the rest of the brotherhood, i blew the whole place up with my magic, and in the rubble i found an "unusual gem", i took it, left the place, never to return! HAHAHHAHAHAHAHAAHAHA!!!!!!!!!

    • Being blood kin and that made me feel quite sad. The dark brotherhood is awesome but I wish they had a deny contact option

    • Not as bad as with Ma'randru-jo, Anoriath, or Helvard.

      Narfi and Enodius, I could write off as a mercy. Neither of those poor bastards was having a good life. Everyone else I could at least see a reason for the contract. (Even if 'being a terrible singer' or 'being a jerk of a boss/terrible ex-wife' were rather petty reasons.)

      Those three didn't seem to have done anything wrong.

    • I really felt bad for the Draconis family in Oblivion :(

    • Oh them. When I read the wiki page I felt a bit bad for them even though I don't actually own oblivion. The only person I wouldn't want to kill of all the contracts is anorianth. He was pretty chill and friendly.

    • you dont have to kill Anoriath... if you dont pick up the quest :) i finished the dark brotherhood and he is still selling food at his stall lol XD

    • if you completely ignore "nazir and dont pick up his contract quests and just stick to the quests leading to kill emperor titus mede... you can save 3 people... including anoriath, the other 2 i cant remember XD

      I felt bad at first, but then I told him to sing me a song of fear and glorious death after he sang his song to me, I regretted nothing.

    • I missed out on the quest to kill Lurbuk, and I'm glad 'cause yes, that would have been terrible.

      Maybe an Orc felt he was an embarrassment to their race?

      The one I felt horrible for killing was Narfi. Did someone just want his land? Or is he secretly a serial killer or something similar? I mean, he did give me a human heart as part of hips Thank You Present when I gave him his sister's necklace. 😳

    • Someone here mentioned that Khajiit from the caravans who's name I cannot spell, and I just figured I'd chime in saying that I didn't really feel TOO bad about killing him. I challenged him to a fight, he accepted, and he lost. I didn't completely dominate him, I fought him and won fair and square. 


      But Lurbuk and Deekus, yeah, I feel terrible for killing them. Deekus got the worst of it, though. 

      While he tried to escape underwater, I panicked and used Soul Tear. Poor lizard has his own soul ripped out of his body, which was reanimated for (presumeably, as I fast-traveled to the next location after his death) Sithis knows how long until he crumbled into ashes.

    • I like Lurbuk. He deserves a chance.

      I suppose Deekus is a scavenger/thief. I don't feel so bad if it means I get to add another statue of Dibella to my collection.

      What about Anoriath? He seems like an honest seller and hunter, also I like his brother Elrindir. Wood Elves are rare in this game.

    • I haven't spent enough time around Lurbuk to develop any emotional attachment to him, so I had no problem killing him.

      But he seemed like an ok person. Just because you're not talented, that doesn't necessarily make you a bad person, let alone warrant an assassination contract.

    • I know this thread has been dead for like a year, but I just got to this quest, and I feel pretty banged up about it. I mean, I play the game as a monster to start with — I've killed characters for much less than being a bad bard — but perhaps because we have to kill Luburk, who is an artist, I relate and it sort of hurts. Like, if someone thought a book I wrote was so bad they wanted my head over it. That sort of thing. 

      R.I.P., Lurbuk.

    • If you're good at something, never do it for free. I'm good at killing. He's bad at singing. It only comes as natural selection, in his case ;)

    • I let him sing me a song, then waited for him to fall asleep. I let him have a death in his sleep. The kindest thing I could do.
