It’s a crazy world out there, so you’d expect the realms of Skyrim to be equally rife with oddities. If the inhabitants and land topography aren’t bizarre enough, then there are plenty of strange tasks for you to jump into in the fifth Elder Scrolls epic. Read on dear readers for five quests in Skyrim that are true oddities. Naturally, this list is likely to contain huge spoilers.

Any quest involving Cicero

That weird guy who stalked you in the arena quest line of Oblivion is back, this time as a weird guy involved with the dark brotherhood. Though encountering him outside of Whiterun may make him seem like a helpless jester (albeit one who is apparently carrying his mother’s remains around in a cart), he is in fact the keeper of the elusive assassin order. Either way, he’s a little bit on the odd side, and any quest involving him is likely to be full of awkward moments.

A Night to Remember

What starts off as a friendly drinking contest over a staff soon turns ugly. An inebriated blackout later and the quest begins to discover exactly what the hell happened the night before. Between goats, a giant’s toe and a trashed temple, the whole quest plays out like a high fantasy version of the Hangover, and it’s just about weird enough to be awkward and enjoyable in equal amounts.

Innocence Lost

Joining the Dark Brotherhood was never going to be a particularly enjoyable task, but really? I was kind of expecting some demonic overlord to speak to me or a satanic cult ritual being the spark for this one, but I instead found myself conspiring with a little boy to kill his matron. Uncomfortable flashbacks to my own upbringing aside, the act of killing the leader of an orphanage at the whims of a kid is weird on a number of levels. I don’t care how mean she supposedly is, she’s called Grelod the Kind after all!
