Need Suggestions

So this weekend I will be turning my attention back to The Dark Brotherhood Resurrection, since The Rabbit Hole has shipped, and is pretty much bug-free at this point.

I already have some ideas for what Averna and Stabby will be doing in part 2, the quests they will ask you to undertake. What's not certain is what the Listener's focus will be, so i'm asking for some input.
I had originally intended to tell the tale of the Listener establishing outposts and new sanctuaries around Tamriel, but the mod "The Black Hand Embassy" seems to be covering that (of course I could still tell the same story but from my vision)


So i'm asking anyone who still reads this blog for input. What should the main focus of part 2 be?

  1. The Dark Brotherhood restoring to their full glory
  2. The Dark Brotherhood vs. The Morag Tong
  3. The Dark Brotherhood vs. a New, unforeseen enemy
  4. More evil goldsmiths to kill, ala Part 1?
Leave your suggestions in the comments! Or email me at TheDarkBrotherhoodResurrection@gmail.com

  1. My Story for The Dark Brotherhood Resurrection part 2 to the reason why The Morag Tong attacked The Dawnstar Sanctuary which they were sent by Bulvel Soulscorn's brother to track stabby for attempting to kill him in the Soulscorn Manner which is the HQ of The Morag Tong. Bulvel Soulscorn is the leader of The Morag Tong and has a deep hatred over The Dark Brotherhood after 30 years ago the former leader by one of the Dark brotherhood members name Farcrey right infrount of her while she saw her father killed by him. Farcrey is long time friends with Stabby also helping Stabby to find his father Sheogorath. Bulvel's Daugther who was saved by Stabby after she was kidnapped by bandits or something with drama and likes Stabby which she shows her to her home (SoulScorn Manner which Bulvel's brother is in right now). As Listener your job is to stop Bulvel Soulscorn and The Morag Tong she leads to destory The Dark Brotherhood. First off for a questline you need to kill off multiple targets which are employers and supporters of The Soulscorn Mining Company which they are scattered around skyrim also loot some of them which they have letters about The Locations of Morag Tong bases. The Employers which be around a bunch of people who are employees and miners who they are meeting with which you can use meny ways to kill them without being seen by the guards also some have to look like it was an accdiant caused by something else other then becides you. One would be a big distraction which you have some drunk set stuff on fire to cause a pandemic and cause one of the Soulscorn mining employers runing to a place where no one is located which gives you the chance to kill him/her.
    Another Assassination plot which one of the suppoters of The Soulscorn Mining Company which you'll attempt to poison few of the members of The Soulscorn Employees and plant a false letter on the big supporter to make it look like he want's to bring down The Soulscorn mining Company and ends up getting killed by security. During these quests The Morag Tong will randomly attack you to attempt to stop you. Once you caused alot of assassins on the soulscorn mining company and find out the locations of the morag tong bases your next task is to kill 3 of Bulvel's Morag Tong officers who are incharge of the plot to destory The Dark Brotherhood and to burn down Raven Rock to ride her of that horrable day when her father was killed. Also there should be some radiant quests to trigger the minor and major quests for the Storyline as well. Let me know what you think of some of my ideas.

  3. if you choose to involve the morag tong you might consider working with the better cities mod guys as they are putting a morag tong base in windhelm (http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/mods/30046)

  4. If you are going to use Morag Tong, you kind of have to make it so you have to have dragonborn,that being said, it could be very cool, if you start out restoring the dark brotherhood, then the morag tong starts messing you up, and you have to stop them, and get some morag tong defectors to join the cause, throw in some dragon stuff

    You could even do something along the lines, of finding out the Tong is raising a dragon army or something, and you have to anhilate them.

    KInd of throw in all those ideas together, but if it were me, i would focus on the tong as the main threat, and restoring the DB as a side point, something to start the questline off, and something to give it a resolution (unless you plan on more parts, but thats up to you)

    1. Now I have to play Dragonborn! I didn't realize the Morag Tong where in there....

      I try really hard not to make my mods require DLC, seems unfair to the audience. i'll have to play the mod and decide for myself

  5. I would love to see the Dark Brotherhood built up to what it felt like in Oblivion. Along with multiple sanctuaries, Smart, interesting and well thought out quests which require a lot of stealth to do.

    Having some new interesting characters who specialize in different areas of combat instead of dumping some generic db members really makes the sanctuary come to life. Oh and No more treachery in the dark brotherhood hehe!

    As for the story, I'm confident you'll be able to make a good one hopefully focusing on rebuilding the Db and then stamping out the newly Reformed Morag tong.

  6. Another thing, in previous posts you mentioned using the void as a location, if you were to do that, you could populate it with people from previous DB contracts in Oblivion and Skyrim, because when a Dark Brother kills someone on contract they to the void to serve Sithis

  7. I'd love to see the Brotherhood being restored with better living areas as the funds come in. The part of the DB that I like the least is having to kill other members.
    Thank you for your work.

    1. Isn't that kind of the whole point of the last quests you get in the Dark Brotherhood in skyrim? You still have Nazir contracts to finish, plus randomly generated contracts, and you use that money to buy stuff for the DB. right? Am I missing something, or are you saying you want more? More pretty things added to the sanctuary?

    2. I think he is trying to say that he wants more sanctuaries? or make it not such a shit hole after you start expanding the DB influence. Make it more of a better living space but there is already a mod out for that http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/mods/20700//?

  8. if you want to do it in a bethesda style fashion
    then it'd be 4, 2, 3, 1

    but i'd rather it be 4, 2, 1, 3
    dark brotherhood is rebuilt, then something comes along and threatens to destroy it all, cliche but it works

  9. You should have Sithis serve as an important character in Dark Brother Hood Res part2 like Herma Mora in the Dragon Born dlc .It might be a bit much to add but I think it would be awesome to have Sithis as a new character in the story I mean the hole Darkbrotherhood quest line is based off of sithis and how the contract shall serve him in the void.

  10. Mostly 1(1.The Dark Brotherhood restoring to their full glory),and maybe a bit of 2(2.The Dark Brotherhood vs. The Morag Tong) as well..

    ReplyDelete
  11. number 1 and 2 sounds very interesting

    ReplyDelete
  12. Number 2 sounds really good
    Grettings from Argentina :D

  13. yeah DB vs Morag Tong sounds cool and have death contracts on high ranking Morag Tong leaders and as we slowly assassinate them they become weaker as a group and even a mission where the morag tong try to assassinate me? like as in an ambush, and I also do play the Blackhand Embassy with your mod, so to be honest I think adding another sanctuary would be too much, maybe just building more npcs inside the dawnstar sanctuary? and maybe even being able to send an initiate on an assassination contract and he has a % chance of completing depending on his skill level?

    ReplyDelete
  14. and even Sabotage Contracts where we have a intended Target to Kill and we have a morag tong incriminating letter, leading them to think they did the killing not the DB like a set up

    ReplyDelete
  15. 1,4
    and then the war with the morag tong begins...and the dark brotherhood will suffer hard they try to reach an agreement with the morag tong but suddenly they will realize that another group is behind this attack a group wich is a greater threat than the morag tong a group of shadowy and skill full agent that are coming to revenge the death of emperor and prevent any event like that buy destroying the darkbrotherhood and even the morag tong

    1. That could be pretty awesome. Maybe have the DB inflict so much damage to the morag tong that even after finding out they were not actually behind the attack, there will be all out war between the three fractions. Because the morag tong are unwilling to let what happened to them slide in order to deal with a greater threat.

    2. yeah that could happen as well....only one of the factions will survive

  16. Not sure if you are still taking requests, but I think a DB Vs. Morag Tong thing would be simply amazing if done correctly.

    Sorry if I'm a bit late. :c
