Blade in the Dark by DuskChant Blade in the Dark by DuskChant
People seemed to enjoy seeing Cicero in the DB armor, so here I go again, a little less rough than last time.

For clarification: Since Cicero is from Cyrodiil he obviously wore the Cyrodiil DB armor, namely the one you get in Oblivion, while he was still an active assassin. (he even wields the Ebony Dagger from Oblivion)

But HELL is it hard to get decent reference material of that armor. Skyrim is everywhere and Oblivion seems kinda left out.

It's great that you have drawn Cicero in your own style. I like it when people use their own style. <3

Thanks!
Personally, I think the Shrouded Armor in Oblivion was cooler than the Skyrim armor set (the robes are all right, though).

I've started playing the DB quest line in Oblivion and I have to agree that it's superior.

I haven't played Oblivion (yet), but based on this drawing I agree with you. :D
I love the Skyrim's DB robes, they are the only clothes that look good on my skinny elf. :P

Having played Oblivion adds immensely to the experience of Skyrim's DB quest if you are into story development. (beware the emotional outbursts in everything that follows)

When I first stepped into the Sanctuary and learned that they had abandoned the 5 tenets I was outraged! How could they!? What about the Wrath of Sithis? Does it still appear?
Then I got Lucien, whom I couldn't save from being unjustly killed by the other Black Hand members, as a ghost follower! I was really happy, even though I used to hate this man for making me kill all my beloved dark brothers and sisters.
And when I read Cicero's journal, about the Sanctuary in Cheydinhal and the "ghosts of purification" it send shivers down my spine because this very Sanctuary used to be my home! I was the one who carried out the Purification! I once called those ghosts my family! And now Cicero's journal told me the whole place is gone!? Damn, I almost cried.

Back to the armor: by looks, I prefer wearing the guild master armor of the Thieves Guild. It makes me feel like myself for some reason... But most of the time I wear the Ancient Shrouded Armor simply because it was such a hassle to get it. ...Even though Cicero did most of the work... *cough*

Oh, Sithis, I'm rambling! Sorry.

Oooooh I want to get Oblivion so bad right now! :O I want to play all that myself too! I always get carried away with the stories, so I'm sure I'd love that stuff.

And it's totally okay to ramble, I also tend to do that. :XD:

Poor Oblivion, Bravil will always be my favorite hive of thieves and cut throats. Love this picture, he looks really pious for someone who's probably going to kill another someone in their sleep.
