Detailed Walkthrough

The Lucky Old Lady

Go to Bravil and activate the statue of the Lucky Old Lady as if you were trying to receive her usual blessing of luck. Instead the Night Mother will tell you that somebody has prayed to her and that you should relay these details to your speaker. You will receive random combinations of one of the following people and locations. None of these locations are in Cyrodiil, so you cannot contact the person in question yourself.

  • A female Breton named Annabelle.
  • A male High Elf named Aranath.

Messenger of Death

Head to the Cheydinhal sanctuary and speak to Arquen. She will promise you that the matter will be taken care of, and hand over your earnings for the previous week.


  • There is no penalty for not visiting the statue once a week.
  • This quest cannot be finished - it will always stay in the list of active quests.
    • PC Only This issue has been addressed by the Unofficial Oblivion Patch; it is removed from the quest list and re-added each time.
    • Pc22.png You can remove the last journal entry by using the following console command: completequest Dark19Whispers. Doing this will not prevent you from delivering the information to your Speaker and receiving your reward.

Journal Entries

Whispers of Death (Dark19Whispers)
Stage Finishes Quest Journal Entry
10 Once a week, I must speak with the statue of the Night Mother in Bravil. The Night Mother will give me a list of names and locations of people who require a visit from a Dark Brotherhood Speaker, to arrange an assassination. If I take this information to Arquen in the Cheydinhal Sanctuary, she will give me my weekly earnings. I can do this every week for as long as I want, and there is no penalty if I choose not to.
  • Not all Journal Entries may appear in your journal; which entries appear and which entries do not depends on the manner in which the quest is done.
  • Stages are not always in order of progress. This is usually the case with quests that have multiple possible outcomes or quests where certain tasks may be done in random order.
  • If an entry is marked as "Finishes Quest" it means the quest disappears from the Active Quest list, but you may still receive new entries for that quest.
  • Pc22.png It is possible to use the console to advance through the quest by entering setstage Dark19Whispers stage, where stage is the number of the stage you wish to complete. It is not possible to un-complete (i.e. go back) quest stages. See SetStage for more information.
