|Contract: Kill Lurbuk|
|Faction||The Dark Brotherhood|
Lurbuk is an Orsimer located in Moorside Inn, in the city of Morthal. A graduate of the prestigious Bards College in Solitude, Lurbuk has quite the reputation: He is widely acknowledged as the worst bard in all of Skyrim. He is so unpopular Astrid had to make a lottery to determine who the client was to be for the Contract.
Set off toward the town of Morthal. Find and enter the Mooreside Inn, where Lurbuk will most likely be. To avoid the risk of a bounty or retribution from the guards, wait until Lurbuk lies down to sleep around 3.00 and 4.30 AM. Sneak in and kill him.
If he's in the main room another easy way to kill him is—while undetected— shoot him with a bow from inside his room or near the entrance. If one has the Sneak perk Backstab, or better yet, Assassin's Blade, if he is in his room in a chair, sneak behind the chair and kill him with a dagger.
- Killing Lurbuk may not prompt any reaction from anyone in the inn. For example, in the main room, if he is shot while he is talking to the innkeeper and the Dragonborn is undetected, the innkeeper will simply look down, then resume leaning on the counter to serve customers. It's unknown if this was intended, (due to Lurbuk's reputation), or not.
