There are plenty of powerful factions in Bethesda’s iconic action RPG, but few are as shrouded in mystery as the Skyrim dark brotherhood. This band of not-so-merry men is made up of the region’s finest assassins, with an invite-only process when it comes to hiring new members. If you’re here, maybe you’ve had the invite, or perhaps you want it, and we’re here to let you know what you’re in for.
