Nagh

It is a dark night, Kellen. This one would have another story to fall asleep to.

What became of your "Forgotten Hero"?

Kellen

I have only a dark tale for a night such as this. One with no heroes at all.

It began when a mysterious merchant named Uther Nere sought to make the one you speak of his agent.

Uther

Come in, traveler. I'm so glad you got my invitation.

I've been watching you for some time, and I think you're just the person I need.

I warn you, this task will be bloody, but the cause is just. It concerns an infamous band of assassins known as the Dark Brotherhood.

The brotherhood is a foul death cult worshipping a living corpse known as the Night Mother.

Some years ago my daughter, the poor misguided girl, murdered her own mother in order to gain their favor.

She claimed to be recruited by the Night Mother's Listener herself

Later, I learned that my daughter too had died pursuing this violent life.

For years I have sought this Listener, but she is elusive.

I want you to infiltrate the Brotherhood, find her, and lead me to her.

Together, we will ensure that no other family suffers the same fate as mine.

I know one sure way to get the Brotherhood's attention. Find someone they were planning to assassinate, and kill them first. I would check the inn to see if anyone's seen anything suspicious. I also know a man was murdered yesterday; try examining his body.

[The player has the option to investigate the body or ask around at the tavern. They each unlock a different series of quests, but the follow up quests can be done in any order. I arranged them in a way that I thought made the most narrative sense. ]
