This mod adds a 4+ hour-long campaign to the end of the Dark Brotherhood Questline.

2 new Followers, fully voice acted and specially scripted for sneaky assassin players:

Averna - will hide in the shadows when you are sneaking. If you sneak attack, she will stay invisible and avoid aggro. Get back up on your feet and she will spring from the void to smite your enemies!

Stabby - Stabby will actively try to perform sneak attacks while you are sneaking. He also has mysterious abilities that kick into place when either he or the player are near death.

These two new followers will appear in the Dawnstar Sanctuary shortly after the end of the Dark Brotherhood Questline. Stabby has Unfinished Death Contracts from Bruma. Averna needs your help performing a dark ritual. Both are hiding something while a sinister new enemy arises and attacks the Dark Brotherhood!

This mod also adds random conversations to the Dawnstar Sanctuary. I personally missed hearing these stories, now you can hear Averna, Stabby, Nazir and Babette discuss some of their most memorable death contracts!

22 New Quests!
6 New Death Contracts - kill the most powerful men in Skyrim.
6 New Words of Power!
3 New Magic Spells!
2 Unique Dungeons.
Poisoned Apples - Everyone's favorite fruit from Oblivion returns with a new twist!
Argonian Black Rum - Makes everyone happy!
And the Biggest, Most Ridiculously massive hoard of treasure you've ever seen in skyrim!

This is NOT a work in progress. It is 100% complete. I will not be adding any new content to this mod, though I will be supporting bug fixes.
This mod has been my passion project for the last half year. I ran myself ragged working on two game projects, stretched my voice actress to her limits, and almost developed a drinking habit so that someone on the internet might some day play my mod and enjoy themselves.
I really hope you take just a moment to try it out, my eternal gratitude to all of those who do!

NOTE: If for some reason, you don't want to play the Dark Brotherhood questline to try this mod, there is a shortcut:
To skip to the end of the dark brotherhood quest:
1) Type 'SetStage DB11 0'
2) Wait a few seconds for the messages to stop
3) Follow the quest until you talk to nazir and he mentions going to the DawnStar Sanctuary
4) Either finish the last dark brotherhood quest (it ties into the mod backstory) or leave the sanctuary and then type 'setstage DB11 80'
5) After talking to Nazir in the Dawnstar Sanctuary, leave and re-enter, the mod should now start

i think the idea for the mod is great, but it hasn't worked for me at all so far. I've tried to make the quest start, even using the consonle commands, but that doesn't work either. The only thing that this mod adds so far is the two followers. The girl doesn't have the option to followe me and the guy won't move when i tell him to follow me. So i'm going to try uninstalling then installing it again. If that doesn't work i'll be really mad since i've been finished with the db quest for awhile and wanted to do more with the faction.

this is my favorite mod of all time, i would love to see part two. but take your time, dont fall victim to the idea that plagues many other developers: "I need to whip out a sequel super fast so i can please the crowd, even if it means sacrificing quality". do not do that, put as much time and effort into part two as u did part one, and make sure it's just as good if not better. good luck to you, i hope you take your time, and make part two absoulutely amazing.

I started this mod and Falskaar in my current game play. Perfect together. Start with this mod before going to Falskaar. Take one of the followers with you. When you come back to Skyrim, the Falskaar boat docks in the perfect spot. I have played this mod before - It is perfect on its own also. But a good Random Starts mod, this mod, and Falskaar - with some SKYRe and a few other additions and quest mod makes a completely new Skyrim!
