Quest Stages - DB03 (Mourning Never Comes)

5 Speak with Astrid
10 Talk to Muiri
Astrid has given me my first major contract. I am to contact Muiri, the apothecary's assistant in The Hag's Cure, in Markarth. Muiri has apparently performed the Black Sacrament, and is trying to contact the Dark Brotherhood.
20 Kill Alain Dufont
Muiri wants me to kill the bandit leader Alain Dufont, who is holed up with his gang of cutthroats in the dwarven ruin of Raldbthar. If Dufont dies, the contract will be completed, but Muiri will pay me some kind of bonus if I also eliminate Nilsine Shatter-Shield, in Windhelm.
30 (Optional) Kill Nilsine Shatter-Shield
40 Talk to Muiri
Alain Dufont is dead. I must now return to Markarth, and tell Muiri the deed is complete.
50 Report back to Astrid
I have spoken to Muiri, and been paid for the assassination of Alain Dufont. I must now report back to Astrid at the Dark Brotherhood Sanctuary.
200 After contacting Muiri, the apothecary's assistant at the Hag's Cure in Markarth, I learned that she wished to hire the Dark Brotherhood to kill a slanderous ex-lover. I killed the man, the bandit leader Alain Dufont, and was rewarded for the contract.
