Thieves Questline / Dark Brotherhood ?
Ok whilest wiking couple of the thieves questline, i read the trivia at the bottom and decided to look into the dark brotherhood line, as i have aventus quest to start, now after looking ahead in brotherhood line and doing the "with friends like these" if Killing one, two, or all of the three will reward the Dragonborn with an initiation to the Brotherhood, regardless of their choice, is a little confusing in regards to joining perhaps, as later when you do the quest "destroy the dark brotherhood" the quest journal entry says " After killing Astrid, the leader of the Dark Brotherhood, I was commissioned by Commander Maro to wipe out the assassins' Sanctuary. I did so, and was rewarded for my efforts. Of course, it will now be impossible for me to join the shadowy organization..."
Quest complete


so Im asking is or was there ever a possible option to join the dark brothood whilest being a nighting gale and member of theives guild, or is that how its meant to turn out, ??

Actually im asking the other way round, I'm already a thieves guild member, and recently a nighting gale from doing a quest with karliah, but upon reading linked quest lines I was asking , was it or it possible or an option to become a brother hood member ?

It is possible to join every faction within the game. As to whether one should be able to do so is another matter for discussion.

I became the leader of the Dark Brotherhood after I was the leader of the Thieves' Guild, so it is possible. Those two seem more closely related than my other job of Legate for the Empire.

No, you just don't kill Astrid. You kill one of three prisoners, and Astrid lets you go. This is of course, after you kill Grelod for Aventus and sleep. Astrid kidnapps you and tells you to kill one of the prisoners before you. If you want to join the brotherhood, kill one then follow the rest of the quest from there. If you want to DESTROY the Brotherhood, kill Astrid. Pretty simple. Here's some advice: maybe just DO a quest instead of looking at the wiki first so you don't take something out of context.
Also, it is entirely possible to join, and eventually become the leader, of every guild in the game. The only factions you have to coose between in the game are the Empire and the Stormcloaks.

After Astrid betrays you I don't think there is much left of the Dark Brotherhood. The Unchild and the Redguard are the only survivors. There is a mod where you can continue the Dark Brotherhood but I do not use it.

You can build a new hideout near Dawnstar down the beach, when you are the new Listener for the Mother.

If you like the challenge of the dark Brotherhood and have worked your way through the quest you could try http://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/25941/?
To take it the next level!
And personally I agree pandoradog22 Play the game without reading ahead !
Your ruining the game for your first play through! Yep you've read you get betrayed ..... are you gonna feel ♥♥♥♥ed after not! Are you going to feel apart of the whole brotherhood NOT ...
Yep it's your game and because you know what's going to happen you'll have your sword out and ready and possibly kill some npc before the dialogue has finished because you know before hand ... So when glitches happen remember this and realise your causing it!
Sorry if this sounds a bit harsh!
good luck with it
