question for ppl who’ve played the dark brotherhood questline in any elder scrolls game i’ve been wondering this for a while

but like they pmuch fit the criteria for a cult to a t minus the emotionally abusive behavior towards and among their members due to hierarchy but like my question is are…

I don’t think I remember ever encountering something that says you couldn’t in either Oblivion or Skyrim. Like, as long as it doesn’t get in the way of the Brotherhood or Sithis, I think it would be fine.

Disregarding that most people in the Dark Brotherhood would probably not be romantically involved with anyone who is not a deevotee of Sithis.

Sexually maybe.

yeah that’s true but then also i feel like they’re the type of organization that. is like generally not encouraging of that sort of thing because while closeness is ok romantic entanglements could be distracting? and like what if you did like marry someone in the brotherhood then go and get knocked up like what are you supposed to do about that maybe this is an understatement but i can think of better places to raise a family.

i have so many questions.

Well, the Night Mother sacrificed her children to her unholy husband Sithis.

So there’s always that?

i’m gonna go ahead and say that this is my headcanon for them like there’s the five tenets and then underneath on a post it note in red sharpie lucien wrote “^btw all kids go 2 sithis don’t come 2 the bhand abt this anymore we don’t want 2 hear it xoxo darkness guide yall”

Lucien LaChance was the biggest bad ass in the history of Tamriel. No questions. Just facts.

there wouldn’t even be a dragon threat if he was still alive in skyrim bc all he’d have to do is use his say “ey i know this is kinda your gig burnin down quaint villages but i’m not about that attitude so you better turn it all the way the fuck down immediately” and alduin would fuck right on off back to where he came from lucien lachance is incredible he can do anything i’m so mad arquen cut his scalp and his dick off and ate half of him

They do not seem that cult like to me. You follow the orders and kill for Sithis, don’t break any tenets and I don’t think they would care that much what you do in your free time. Though getting a family does not seem like a sane idea, but neither seems like impossible. Maybe for the higher ups it would be more frowned upon, but even then more for political reasons?

Having a family might even come in handy in some cases, for going undercover.

i meant by like the standard cult-behavior checklist they applied as a cult, but that’s more from the outside looking in. yknow like “a group of assassins who vehemently worship the sheer inevitability of eternal death and murder people for money which they are told to do through one person who hears the whispers of the aforesaid eternity’s bride who’s body is kept sacred and revered by the organization and they operate by a specific hierarchy and follow strict rules which if broken among the family will essentially unleash the wrath of the devil upon them until they atone” sounds pretty damn cult-ish but once you’re actually in yeah it’s more of a mafia type situation.

i’m just curious more about if their nature towards romance and significant others is collective or independent in that they clearly mourn the death of “family” they lose but in loving someone so much i think it would make more sense to be like “no i’m being selfish they’re with the dread father now and that is a reason to be happy”. not that they’re all a bunch of cartoonishly sociopathic demon worshippers with a crooked way of thinking but still.

Astrid and Arnbjorn are married, and they’re both in the Dark Brotherhood. My thinking is it would be pretty hard to keep the fact that you kill lots of people for a living a secret from a spouse outside the Night Mother’s little family. The Dragonborn/ The Hero of Kvatch are both kind of weird exceptions because while they are technically part of history, that history is vague and incredibly variable, and so the narrative can afford to double up on things that don’t make sense, like being the head of every single militant/economic/educational establishment in Skyrim/Cyrodiil.

i know like i just like to play it double life style like oh my husband is a very prominent member of the companions which i am the leader of and also we’re both part of the blades we’re here to save everyone!

and then i assassinate the emperor

it’s like ok the dragon born has serious political views and is playing both good guy and bad guy or they’re just evil and want to play for both sides for funsies or they have a messiah complex and just believe that while dragons and bad guys need to die they’re also helping people by assassinating OR they’re amoral and just want to be on a winning side so opts for both so it’s kind of a zero sum game for them

but like they pmuch fit the criteria for a cult to a t minus the emotionally abusive behavior towards and among their members due to hierarchy but like my question is are they “allowed” to have romantic and/or sexual relationships? like i know their basic rule system is the five tenets and it doesn’t say anything about ‘we don’t need to be seein yoncé on her knees; to do so is to invoke the wrath of sithis’ and in skyrim the tenets were basically disbanded and astrid is a speaker so she can do whatever or whoever she wants and in oblivion i know gogron straight lyin about telaendril i don’t think she got time for dick but if she did and they did i wonder if that’s just like. a kind of rule where it’s generally discouraged but ppl do it anyway? idk i’m just wondering because normally in a cult you have to ask permission to engage in a relationship with someone and even then that person typically MUST be a part of said cult and it’s just odd to me that the db would follow every cult-like practice except for that one.
