In Elder Scrolls, there is a secret society called "The Dark Brotherhood." This society has been in the game since the franchise's first iteration. Players can join this faction as it is relatively easy to be a part of the Dark Brotherhood Society.


What is the Dark Brotherhood in Skyrim?


The Dark Brotherhood is a Sithis-worshipping cult. This secret society is loved among the Elder Scrolls community. Players want to join this gruesome cult and explore all the secrets behind this mysterious group of people. Players might think killing a few citizens will attract their attention, but it's not enough. However, killing a particular civilian will highlight you in their eyes.


How to join the Dark Brotherhood in Skyrim?


Finding Aventus Aretino is necessary before players can join this faction. He is a Nord child in Windhelm performing the Black Sacrament, a ritual used to contact the Dark Brotherhood. You'll come across several rumors floating around Skyrim about Aretino. NPCs, especially guards and innkeepers, can be seen talking about him. However, on your journey to find him, things might become difficult at some points, and you might have trouble finding an NPC who will tell you about him. If that's the case, then approaching Maul, who is at either Riften or the Mistveil Keep next to the city entrance, is advisable. You'll have to pay him a handful to extract information about the Dark Brotherhood.


Similarly, the children in the Honorhall Orphanage in Riften will often talk about Aretino. Once you catch wind of his deeds, the objective "Talk to Aventus Aretino" will automatically begin. You may now visit Aretino at his house in Windhelm. He'll kneel over a skeleton, completing a ceremony to summon the Dark Brotherhood. He'll believe his ritual was successful and that you're a hired assassin. To finish this task and join the Dark Brotherhood, you must assassinate Grelod the Kind, the elderly lady who runs the Honorhall Orphanage and whom Aretino thinks is a dreadful person. The orphans will rejoice if you murder her. Return to Aretino and inform him that the task has been completed. You must now wait 24 hours before the Dark Brotherhood may contact you. After that, sleep in a bed, and when you wake up, you'll discover that you've been kidnapped by the Brotherhood and transported to an odd cabin. In this hut will be a Dark Brotherhood assassin called Astrid and three captives. You're in if you accept the invitation. Simply kill one of the captives to be taken into the dangerous secret club.
