Litany of Blood[edit]

After completing the first quests for the Dark Brotherhood, you can speak to Nevusa in a small enclave on the left side of the Sanctuary. She introduces you to the Litany of Blood. It holds a special assignment given by the Listener to those deemed worthy - to assassinate a number of persons throughout all faction zones. After killing each target, their ghostly image will appear on a pedestal. Executing all targets completes the Litany of Blood achievement, giving you the Executioner title and Cadaverous Assassin Polymorph.

For more information on the Litany, see the quest page.
