Save the Dark Brotherhood- or Arnbjorn at Least (Skyrim) (All Platforms)

0 have signed. Let’s get to 100!


In Skyrim: The Elder Scrolls VI, your family comes in the form of a band of assassins calling themselves the Dark Brotherhood. Unfortunately, your loving times together come to a sudden halt when the leader, Astrid, betrays her husband and her “siblings”, leading to the untimely death of all but three- the Listener (the Player), Nazir the suave Redguard, and the charming vampire child Babette.

If a patch was released that allowed the player to save at least one character (Arnbjorn, whose attackers can be killed, but dies due to his death being scripted in the code), it would provide not only emotional relief for the players, but a sort of irony in that the assassin behind the death of so many would fight to save lives.

Furthermore, it would just make sense. Arnbjorn may have been injured, but he’s also an extremely powerful werewolf. With the player, the almighty Dragonborn, at his side, it would be no stretch for him to live (and perhaps see his wife one last time before she dies).

Veezara, the Argonian assassin, is capable of fighting off an entire wedding party in the plot to kill Vittoria Vici.

These assassins are not to be trifled with, and they are family. Family is nothing without one another, and we should fight to save them. We chose to join them, not destroy them, and we  made them our home. Let us fight for their lives and protect them from Astrid’s betrayal.

I don’t honestly expect this to even reach the devs’ eyes, let alone cause an actual update- I understand, after all, that such an update would require a lot of work. But should you come across it, I humbly request this detail be added to the game- that the Dark Brotherhood live on. At the very least, let us save Arnbjorn, if only to preserve his endearingly insulting nicknames.

I would, however, like to stress that the goal of this petition is to save ALL the members (excluding Astrid, who has to die for the questline to work).
