Yeah, you really don't get to criticize. Hate to break it to you, Hemming, but it would seem that your son is a budding sociopath with a narcissistic personality disorder, your daughter has a morbid fascination to poisons, and the glorified head of your family is like the mother of all hagravens. Congrats. :P

I remember reading someone comparing the Black-Briars of Riften to the Corleone family from The Godfather - and I find it somewhat accurate. Anyway, no matter what you think of the comparison, the fact is that it's one screwed up family. I mean Bron is anything but a paragon of virtue, but even he doesn't like these guys... :D
Also, my first Skyrim comic in almost three months. Yikes, it's been a while.

Why is there no way to watch the Black-Briars support crumble from underneath them if you kill off the Thieves Guild and Dark Brotherhood?!

Every time Maven threatens me with a visit from the DB, I want to laugh in her face and say: "Oh yeah! Those folks in black. Well, have fun with that!"

I always wanted to challenge Hemming to a brawl and beat the $#!t out of him.

Black-Briars and Silver-Bloods; the two most corrupt clans in Skyrim, and the reason I try to avoid Markarth and Riften. And they both gain power in the Civil War questline.

If you play PC, you should consider a mod that lets you kill them, for all their political power, it wouldn't protect them from the blade of the Dovahkiin (and he'd have a bounty after, but nothing serious)

I've started addressing the Black-Briars as nothing but the Riften Mafia because of this :XD:

Good - my task is done. :XD:

Well it is a very accurate nickname. :XD: Now one of the NPCs just needs to start addressing Maven as the Godmother or something

Hemming confuses the crap out of me. He is coded as Maven's husband, but he constantly refers to her as 'mother'. There is some serious weirdness happening in that family.
