Player: Now it falls to us to return to the sanctuary, and save our buddies, but they've removed the fast travel point, so we're going to be headed there from Falkreath.
I see them walking around with torches over there. I think their horse is the one that detected me, since no one is attacking, despite that not being detected.
All right, he finally stopped, and now he's stopped for good.
That's a pretty late quest complete. Whatever. There's two.
I'm thinking, being that the other guy would have to put his torch away, but that happens instantly, so I guess it doesn't matter.
Where's that other one? Ah, on the ridge above.
Let's go arrow him a little bit. It's pretty funny how their entire body just goes stiff, and then you fall backward when you get shot with an arrow. Is that how that works? Is that what really happens? I don't want to know.
Penitus Agent 1: Which one was the rat?
Penitus Agent 2: Durno. One of these corpses. Does it matter?
Penitus Agent 1: Suppose not. But what's taking the others so long? The sooner we get out of here, the better. Smoke's getting bad. This place will be raging soon.
Player: There's Penitus Oculatus all over this.
Penitus Agent 2: Is someone there?
Penitus Agent 1: Ha! Found you!
Player: Oh, boy! There's Aerin Bjorn fighting a couple of them there. Help him out.
Penitus Agent 1: Gods, no!
Player: I guess this is what all that oil was doing on those carts outside, but...
Penitus Agent 2: Time to end this little game!
Player: No flames. Flames are bad. Oh, man. This place is in a bad way.
Nazir: If I am to die today, so be it. But you'll not soon forget the Dark Brotherhood.
Player: Oh, Jeez! Who's here? I'll save you! It's kind of hard to see here.
It's a good thing I ran up close, because at a distance, I'm not sure if I'm supposed to save the arrow or shoot the arrow.
Oh wow! That guy's got magic.
Nazir: That's the end of that.
Player: All right, you're good! You're good.
Nazir: So you are alive. I was starting to wonder.
Considering most of us are now dead, I assumed as much.
And before you ask...No, I don't think it was you. Well, maybe I did, but you saving my sorry hide just now sort of erased any doubts.
Player: You're welcome. Now, let's get out of here.
Nazir: You've got that right. Only a matter of time before we're roasted alive. Come on!
Player: Get out of here! It's gonna blow!
Night Mother: Listener, I am your only salvation. Come, embrace me.
Player: Oh, brutal!
Nazir: Damn it, there's got to be a way out of here!
Player: Aah! Hey, it's me again. Time for hugs.
Night Mother: Sleep.
Player: Kind of cold. Just left Nazir back there to fend for himself. Well, I guess that's game over. We got roasted alive inside the Night Mother's coffin. Thanks for joining us.
Babette: Hurry, Nazir! I'm telling you, he's in there!
Player: Oh, okay. Here we go.
Nazir: I'm going as fast as I can, you stupid she-devil. I don't see you helping.
Babette: I'm not exactly built for manual labor. Now come on, you've almost got it.
Nazir: One more pull.
Babette: Can you get it open?
Nazir: I think so. Just hold on a moment.
Night Mother: You must speak with Astrid. Here, in the Dark Brotherhood Sanctuary.
Nazir: Whoa, whoa, whoa. Slow down. It's all right. You've been through a lot. Maybe you should just sit down for a bit.
Player: No, I'm good.
Nazir: Oh, well in that case, lead on. I'm right behind you.
Player: All right, Let's find Astrid. Whoops, not that way.
Astrid: Alive...You're alive...Thank Sithis.
Shhh...Please. There is much...I have to say, and...not much time...
I'm sorry. So very sorry. The Penitus Oculatus...Maro...He said that by giving you to them, he would leave the Dark Brotherhood alone. Forever.
Oh, by Sithis, I was such a fool. All of this...It's all my fault. You are the best of us, and I nearly killed you...as I've killed everyone else...
Player: Et tu? Astrid.
Astrid: No! Don't pity me. I deserve whatever fate the Dread Lord has in store. I betrayed you, and now Maro has betrayed me. Fitting.
I just wanted things...to stay the way they were, before Cicero, before the Night Mother, before you. I thought I could save us. I was wrong.
But you're alive! So there's still a chance. A chance to start over, rebuild. That's why I did...this.
Don't you see? I prayed to the Night Mother! I am the Black Sacrament.
I'm saying you were right. The Night Mother was right. The old ways...they guided the Dark Brotherhood for centuries. I was a food to oppose them.
And to prove my...sincerity, I have prayed for a contract. You lead this family now. I give you the Blade of Woe, so that you can see it through.
You must kill...me.
Do it, listener. Kill me.
Player: If you wish.
[foreign dialect 00:09:56]
Astrid: Thank you.
