 Detailed Walkthrough
 The Lucky Old Lady

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.

 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.
- This issue has been addressed by the Unofficial Oblivion Patch; it is removed from the quest list and re-added each time.
- 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)
||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.
- On the PC, 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.
