2 (who?)
<Warning Oblivion Spoilers... > Not that it's a new game or anything but I don't want to annoy that one person out there who just picked it up...

Well, I finally got around to playing through the entire Dark Brotherhood storyline in Oblivion. I never played it before, as I was playing
a 'good' character who hated assassins ('good' being a relative term as she was a thief... but who isn't in these games??).

Anyways, I was always curious about who Lucien really was after I had to hear him go on and on all the time as the Spectral Assassin in
Skyrim. I had to find out about these stories he was talking about. And now I really DO know the tale of Mathieu Bellamont and the great
treachery of Cheydinhal. Oh my gosh... poor Lucien... why couldn't the player character get to him in time??? And the way he died... so awful! (Note:
Lucien probably deserved it as he killed an innocent mom in front of an innocent boy, but the games twist things to make you sympathize with the
characters you interact the most with- if we had instead spent our time with Mathieu Bellamont and HE died a gruesome death instead of Lucien, then
who knows? Maybe Bellamont would have a huge fan following).

So...Anyhow, I feel more caught up now in the ES universe. Oh, but I haven't met Sheo in Oblivion either. Probably should do that too before I head back to Skyrim...

PS. No new art until I get my new Photoshop software in the mail. Still waiting.... (Yes, I am sans Photoshop right now... This is due to my previous computer
giving up the ghost and my having to get a new one...).

I know this is way old but I just have to say. You said that Lucien killed an innocent mom in front of in innocent boy and although Bellamont was an innocent child the mother was questionable but possibly innocent. But, Lucien actually didn't just slaughter the mother in front of Mathieu, in his journal it explains that he was hiding under his mother's bed when she was killed and Lucien may not have realized he was there. If he had realized he was there I'm sure he would have found the connection between him and the traitor before it was too late. Regardless, Lucien was far from innocent as a murderer, but I'd have to say I don't like Gogron gro-Bolmog the most of the murders. During one of the first two quests you do with the Dark Brotherhood, either the pirates or the dropping the head on the man in Bruma he'll tell you a story about killing a five year old child at her birthday party.

I have not played played Obivion (and probably will not due to my age) but you make a good point. You sympathize with the character you knew the most. I mean I went through the whole DB quest line in Skyrim and felt bad for Cicero instead of Astrid. >.< In the end they are all, even your new assassin character included now, murderers. Yet they are not lawless bandits, they make a living helping.... cleanse the world of the unworthy, for a price. All people die in the end, but the Dark Brotherhood brings all who are unworthy with them.
(The great treatry of Chedenhal? The story Lucien asked me about but I never knew? D:)

Hey, what's age have to do with playing Oblivion? I'm guessing you are not too young
as you play Skyrim. Oblivion is awesome. You should give it a chance.

I don't think the people the DB assassinate are unworthy, per se. They just happened to
get someone angry enough to want them dead. (It says more about the person who began the contract-
they must be pretty evil to hire an assassin just because someone decided to not date them anymore, or whatever the case!)

Ah well I'm technically not supposed to play Skyrim. My older family members let me play, anyway. At any rate, your right. I'll look into Oblivion. It sounds fun!
Yeah, I thought the same except when I had to kill the homeless dude and the elderly maid. I never got those two contracts...

I have found mods that rescript the game to save the brotherhood innocents...havent used it myself...but saw it :) made me sad...I loved Lucien and Vicente...and if Vicente wanted to destroy the brotherhood...he would have done it hundreds of years ago when he joined :P

Yeah :) on tesnexus. Also there is one that adds on an addition for the listener with a memorial for all the lost brothers and sisters
