Skyrim Wiki

The Black Sacrament is a ritual performed by those who wish to contact the Dark Brotherhood. These rituals are heard by the Night Mother who then informs the Listener who in turn dispatches a Dark Brotherhood agent.

In the absence of the Night Mother, Astrid and the Dark Brotherhood simply kept their eyes and ears open for any news of people attempting the Black Sacrament.


Sweet Mother, Sweet Mother, send your child unto me, for the sins of the unworhty must be baptized in blood and fear.
