Skyrim: The Skeleton Key by Isriana Skyrim: The Skeleton Key by Isriana
Come on, Karliah, what did you expect Bron to do with it? Just give away the shiny key of awesomeness? Pffft. :XD:


Oh well, ok, Nocturnal will have her key eventually. Right after I'm done playing with it...
But really, I couldn't help thinking that Karliah might have done better had she given that key to Brynjolf in the first place. Also, I wonder if you can pickpocket Daedric Princes. Hmm... :plotting:

Yeah. Until you get the 'unbreakable' perk from the lockpicking tree. THEN you give it back to Nocturnal.

hehehe, and that's why i like oblivion better, the key is the reward instead of a quest item, i still give it back, as soon as i get max perks on lockpicking, faved the comic.

Ever read the in-game book "Purloined Shadows", where two thieves attempt to steal from Nocturnal? Nocturnal is totally letting Bron off easy =)

I didn't return the Skeleton key until AFTER I killed Alduin!!

The key's mostly useless if you've already got a high lockpicking skill and about 200 lockpicks in your inventory, which you will be certain to have if you've journeyed through skyrim for any length of time
