    I've just been approached by Lucien. I really didn't intend to do the Dark Brotherhood, because I assume that it's geared toward the 'sneaky assassin' type, which my character is not. And yet I've seen it stated many times just how good the quest line is. So, I'm conflicted. Would you recommend a character such as mine, a 'Blade Mage' in light armor with virtually no sneaking skills, get involved with LaChance and the Night Mother? Yes or no, and why? :beermug:

    On a side note, I was amused by LaChance. He speaks all conspiratorial and low-voiced when he makes his proposition, then I asked him about rumors and he broke character, reverting to a very upbeat, normal sounding person! I just thought that was funny.

    Yes, because they favor sneaking, but don't require it.

    If you ever feel doubt talk to the Orc within the Dark Brotherhood. :) Join the family!

    I know that this is the Oblivion subforum, but in the Skyrim DB they do have a Destruction Mage and a Two Handed Warrior in the guild. I guess there are sometimes when you need a bit more power for particular marks.

    Just remember not to piss them off, it isn't like Skyrim where you pay a little fine to get back in. They send a wraith of Sithis after you if you break the rules.

    Guild? They're nothing like the Dark Brotherhood of Oblivion. Bunch of cut throats with no pride.

    I do use the term guild loosely.

    A guild is an association of people for mutual aid or the pursuit of a common goal.

    So shouldn't be to loosely since that is what they are, since the cultist aspect has lessened in Skyrim at least.

    Very well. I just don't want to go through what my first character in Skyirm did, having to pay fines to the guards after almost every kill because I wasn't sneaky. The guards on Oblivion are even worse than the ones in Skyrim, seemingly materializing from nowhere!

    I'll give LaChance, a chance. :beermug:

    I know it's a bit too late but:
    -It's not that they're simple cutthroats, it's just that they're not so this fanatics, they have more personality
    -If you're not a sneaky type, you can still play DB well, but you're gonna have a hard time. However, this isn't like Skyrim, if you kill someone in a closed room with noone else, nobody knows. So I'd say you give it a shot.

    You reckon? I thought the characters in Oblivion's Dark Brotherhood were much more interesting than Skyrim's (with the exception of Babette, of course). I actually felt really bad when I performed the Purification quest in Oblivion and yet I didn't give a monkey's when Penitus Oculatus massacred the entire Falkreath Sanctuary.

    I still haven-t advanced much in oblivion's DB so I don't really know that much but Nazir, Vezaara and Astrid were quite interesting I think.

    Ah, I see. In that case I highly recommend speaking to each member before carrying out contracts because they'll give you different advice on how to assassinate your target, as well as relate little life stories. The Orc is especially amusing.

    No it's not too late, as I haven't done any of the quests yet, except killing that first guy. I'm waiting until after I complete the main quest, which I'm taking my time doing since it went rather quickly the first time. :beermug:

    Oh, thanks for the advice. When the vampire guy(can't believe I forgot his name) told me to do so I didn't listen 'cause in Skyrim Nazir and Vezaara are the only ones who actually answer your question, but if oblivion's like that then I'll start questioning them.

    Also, keep in mind some of the peeps give optional quests that yield some cool rewards. Do it before you complete the Dark Brotherhood, trust me, you will understand after. Also, do all the optional parts of a main mission, the rewards are awesome and unique.
