READ ME! Please forgive the double audio at the beginning! I thought I muted the video. :[ But this is how I joined the Dark Brotherhood. There will be multiple ways to initiate the quest in the written guide below!
To join the Dark Brotherhood you have to complete the quest Innocence Lost. There are multiple ways to get information on the quest, but before you do so you may just want to fast travel to Windhelm and visit the Aretino house hold. Some people have been able to get the quest right away ... if you aren't that lucky try some of the following tips first.
1. Visit Inns around Skyrim and ask for the latest gossip. Somewhere along the way an Innkeeper should alert you that a boy in Windhelm is trying to perform the Black Sacrement. Once you get this information you can travel to the Aretino household in Windhelm to get the quest from Aventus Aretino.
*WHILE IN RIFTEN* .. If you are looking for the information in Riften speak to a man named Maul. He should be by a post as soon as you enter the city. You can pay him for information on the Dark Brotherhood and the Thieves Guild.
*IF IN WINDHELM* Visit the Candalhearth Hall and speak with Idesa Sadri ... If she isn't there check outside the Aretino house hold .. In my game she was there speaking to Grimvar Cruel-Sea about the child.
2. Travel to Riften and complete the quest Innocence Lost.
3. Travel back to Windhelm to alert Aventus Aretino that Grelod the Kind is Dead.
4. Go about your game or wait for a few days. (It took me around 5 - 7) Eventually a courier will show up and give you a letter with a black hand imprint that says We Know.
5. After you receive the letter sleep in any bed. Doing so will get you abducted by the Dark Brotherhood.
