How to be a Dastardly Outlaw in Skyrim

Have you ever wondered how you could be more evil in Skyrim? Maybe you are just checking to make sure you are being evil enough? Or maybe you are some goody-two-shoes trying to learn our ways and tracks us down?

In the upcoming paragraphs I will teach you the things only the most notorious outlaws do in Skyrim.

Join The Rebelion

Only the most notorious of outlaws over throw empires. Now, with the imperial legion weak, it is your time to strike. You must join the rebellion!

In order to join the rebellion you must loot and pillage you way to the great city of Windhelm. Once you are there you must speak to Ulfric Stormcloak and then prove that you are bad-arse enough,

Pillage and Loot

When you and your marauder friends, er I mean fellow members of the rebellion, are attack the city it is time for profit. All of the guards in the city are either already dead or are going to soon be dead so they are to busy to responds to the cries of help from citizens.

This is your opportunity to break into houses and loot everything inside. You are also free to kill anyone that happens to be inside as well just like a true outlaw.

Join the Thieves Guild

Joining the thieves guild is for true scoundrels. This will get you the opportunity to commit many dastardly deeds as well as access to a couple of fences to sell your stolen goods.

In order to join you need to meet up with my contact Brynjolf in the Riften market. He'll give you a couple of trial missions to see if you are thieves guild material and then your in.

Remember you can pick-pocket your gold back from guards after you bribe them!

Join the Dark Brotherhood

Now, if it time for you to become truly evil. You must join the Dark Brotherhood!

The Dark Brotherhood is an ancient cult of evil people that worship the Dark Mother and kill people!

In order to join you must go to you local inn keeper and find out about the rumors of the boy that is trying to summon the Dark Brotherhood. After you have heard the rumor you must head out on your mission to find innocence lost and join the Brotherhood.

Only after joining the Dark Brotherhood will you be truly evil and dastardly.

      Thanks for the comment Derdiu. Being an outlaw isn't for the faint of heart but it is a very rewarding path in Skyrim.

      Thanks for the comment ttocs. Maybe we should just kill both the rebellion and the empire.
