Skyrim: Don’t join the dark brotherhood

It’s not easy being good in gaming. Helping others, slaying warlords and rescuing princesses seems to have little reward when compared to being evil, and with little or no consequences that will result from such actions, its easy too.

Bethesda has developed a new AI system for Skyrim, one that drastically alters the world around you based on your actions, and will either aid or hinder your mission progress. One such example of this is when players join the Dark Brotherhood, who aren’t going to be so easy to get along with this time in the latest Elder Scrolls game.

Anyone joining the Dark Brotherhood will have to adhere strictly to the five tenets of the evil organization, as these will require your complete obedience. Tenet 3 in particular states that a player may not “disobey or refuse to carry out an order from a Dark Brotherhood superior”.

In previous Elder Scrolls games, refusing such a mission would just leave the Dark Brotherhood leader to shrug his shoulders, and bar you from accepting the mission if you changed your mind later in the game, but this time, the consequences will be a tad bit more severe.

Refusing a tenet means an instant dismissal from the Brotherhood, while also invoking the wrath of the Sithis, a being that will come for you in your sleep and attempt to murder you, according to local legend.

Another downside to following the ambiguous tenets of the Dark Brotherhood, is that performing their evil deeds will see towns and villages become wary, and downright hostile towards you, further impeding and hampering your mission success rates. Village residents have a longer memory this time around thanks to the Radiant AI feature, and they’ll pay particular attention to that madman who came running into town with a sword in one hand and a fireball in the other, who also happened to slaughter half of the patrons in a bar.

So it seems that choices in Skyrim will have some measure of consequences for players, depending on their alignment and position within a guild or organization. Personally, I’m going to adopt the tone of neutral jerk-ass, and undergo enough training to let me survive anything that gets thrown my way when I eventually go on an epic rampage.

Because he's the writer that Lazygamer deserves, but not the one it actually needs right now. So we'll hunt him. Because he can't take it. Because he's not a hero. He's a loud-mouthed journalist, a watchful procrastinator. A dork knight.

    It’s funny how this is COMPLETELY WRONG. The Five Tenets are “long since abandoned” in Skyrim at the time. I’ve made 3 theif/assassin style characters with respectable levels (Highest was around 40) and UNLESS YOU GET SEEN IN A CRIME NO ONE CARES. The most that happens is that, if you complete TDB quests guards will comment about you doing evil things, but they will never try to arrest you or give you a bounty unless you are seen committing a crime. Evil is STILL easy!

    i am giving a testimony of how i become rich and famous today… i was deeply strangled up by poverty and i had no body to help me, and also i search for help from different corners but to no avail… i see people around me getting rich but to me i was so ashamed of my self so i met a man on my way he was very rich and he was a doctor so he told me something and i think over it though out the day so the next day i looked up and i keep repeating what he said to me.

    ” if you want to get rich quick and be famous”
    you need to cross your heart and do what
    is in your mind

    so i tried all i could in other for me to do as he said so later on i told my fellow friend about this same thing then my friend was interested in my suggestions so i decided to look in the internet and i found an email address of this great fraternity( church-of-satan@live.com) so we decided to contact them and unfortunately we did as they instruct us to do and later they told us to get some requirements and all the rest… so this initiation took us just a week and later on the great fraternity gave us $70,000,000.00 to start up our lives…. and now am testifying that if in any case you want to join any great fraternity all you need to do is for you to contact them because they are legitimate and they do as what they instructed them to do okay so email them now at ( church-of-satan@live.com ) or you can call them now +2347067607812 they will respond to you okay… regards!!…. or add them on whatsapp via there number +2347067607812

    My testimony,

    i am Paula Rodway, i am hear to give testimony of how i got back my husband, we got married for more than 3 years and we have two kids, thing were going well with us and we are always happy. until one day my husband started to behave in a way i could not understand, i was very confused by the way he treat me and the kids. later that month he did not come home again and he called me that he want a divorce, I asked him what have i done wrong to deserve this from him, all he was saying is that he want a divorce and that he hates me and do not want to see me again in his life, i was mad and also frustrated do not know what to do, i was sick for more than 2 weeks because of the divorce. i love him so much he was everything to me without him my life is incomplete. i told my friend and she told me to contact a spell caster Dr. Ukusebor, i never believe in all this spell casting of a thing due to how i love him i quickly do sowithout hesitation, and i went to try if something good will come out of it. I contacted Dr. Ukusebor, for the return of my husband to me, he told me that my husband have been taken by another woman that she cast a spell on him that is why he hates and the kids, and also want us to divorce. then he told me that he have to cast a spell on him that will make him return to me and the kids, he instructed me on how to go about it and cast the spell and after 3 days my husband called me and he told me that i should forgive him, he started to apologize on phone and said that he love me, and he did not know what happen to him that make him left me. it was the spell that the Dr. Ukusebor shrine casted on him that made him come back to me, today me and my family are now happy again. thank you Dr. Ukusebor for what you have done for me i would have been nothing today if not for your help. i want you out there who are passing through this kind of love problem of getting back their husband, wife , or ex boyfriend and girlfriend to contact Dr. Ukusebor via email (ukuseborspellcaster@gmail.com) and you will see that your problem will be solved, i make this testimony to you all because i know the difficulties i pass through when my husband left me i don’t want you to pass through such thing so do contact Dr. Ukusebor if you have similar problem.
