Why would anyone? Edit
If you try to do this quest, Sithis will kill you.....
Oh no! Big bad Sithis, the god of nothingness, will get me! Maybe if he didn't sound like an STD I'd take him seriously.
I wonder if you can behead Sithis, then cook his head...with some cabbage and leeks...
I think if Sithis could simply kill who he wanted, he woundn't need assassins.
He's called the void, so he's technically nothing.

Can I still get the Dark Brotherhood double sneak attack damage gloves if I destroy the order?
There's a set sitting on the book case when you first come in, so I'd imagine they'll be there if you go in to kill everyone. Or, you could probably loot a set off of someone's corpse.
OMG you can actually get the blade of woe at the abandoned shack with a high enough sneek skill. I just went to the bookshelf to the right of the door where she sits on top of and sneaked at her. When you are hidden, just pickpocket her and she has it on her.126.96.36.199 15:49, September 12, 2012 (UTC)
Are there any similar quests to this, like to destroy the Thieves Guild? Edit
Looking into alternative paths to take with my second character.
You don't even need to destroy the Thievs Guild. they are already doomed as it is. Just let them rot in the Ratway.
Quest trigger Edit
Will the quest only begin if you kill Astrid in the shack? Can you not do it later on? Monkey-_ 12:24, March 5, 2012 (UTC)
Once Astrid talked to me, I exited out of the conversation immediately. Then I killed her. But the "Destroy the Dark Brotherhood!" quest does not begin, and I can not free the captives. 188.8.131.52 21:20, March 10, 2012 (UTC)
There is a bug if You use voice of the emperor the members talk as if you had broken the rule and ask you to pay the money starting another quest.
he didnt rant .. Edit
why does the notes section say that commander maro rants ? he says a single line of dialouge (i think i spelt that wrong , sorry i dont know the proper way) i dont think that counts as a rant ? 184.108.40.206 18:40, June 28, 2012 (UTC)
revive the dark brotherhood Edit
you CAN still play through the dark brotherhood quests even if you have completed "destroy the dark brotherhood"
do the following:
1. join the dark brotherhood faction:
"player.addtofaction 1bdb3 1"
now they wont be hostile to you anymore
2. resurrect all the dark brotherhood members you killed via console commands. for example:
to resurrect astrid
ids for the other characters are: arnbjorn 1bde7, gabriella 1bdeb, nazir 1c3ad, veezara 1c3ae, festus krex 1d4bb, lis 3289a
note that babette was not in the sanctuary when you destroyed it, so you have to enable her and place her into the sanctuary. enter the sanctuary and issue the following commands
3. start your first dark brotherhood quest named "sanctuary":
you still need to advance the quest manually via
"setstage db02a 10"
congratulations, you have received your first contract and the shrouded armor
note that i havent figured out yet how to trigger the conversation they have when you join the dark brotherhood and enter the sanctuary for the first time. all the members are standing in a circle with babetta in the middle supposed to tell a story, yet they just stand there forever and do nothing. that wont keep you from communicating with them and doing quests however
it is not possible to re-initiate any earlier dark brotherhood quests ("innocence lost" and "with friends like these"), so this is the earliest point at which you can (re-)enter the dark brotherhood questline
