 Detailed Walkthrough
 Quest Offer
This quest is one of many others you can randomly get from the pool of Merchants/Innkeepers Quests.
My name is unimportant. All you need to know is that I need someone who isn't afraid to spill a little blood, for (random gold) gold. Tell me now if you're not interested. Are you willing to take this job?
Shhh! Keep your voice down. Before I say anything else, are you the kind of (player's race) that will kill for gold? How about (random gold) gold?
I am looking for someone that won't faint at the sight of blood. Human blood. For (random gold) gold would you kill a man?
 Quest Acceptance
Merchant/Innkeeper goes on:
I want (target's name) killed. The problem is that the Dark Brotherhood won't take the job. Something about a favor they owe. I need an independent. Do the job and get back to me within a week and I'll pay you the (random gold) gold. Just ask for (questgiver's name), I'll be waiting right here for you.
 Quest Decline
You never saw me.
Scram. I don't want anyone to see us talking together.
Fine. Be that way.
 Quest Object
You have a week, which is plenty of time to do the job. Ask around in town until someone points you towards your target's current location. Enter the building and kill your target. Sometimes the door(s) will be locked and you need either to do a little lockpicking or have an Open spell at hand. The target will be in most cases a thief class character.
Note that if you complete your assassination successfully, your regional reputation will drop significantly (by at least five levels), as will your reputation with the Dark Brotherhood.
 Quest End
Head back to your employer to get your reward.
Revenge is mine! By the way, you had better get out of town. I hear the Brotherhood caught wind of this. Here's your money (player's first name).
