Hail Sithis Quest
The Night Mother will speak with you about keeping the Dark Brotherhood alive and finishing the contract with Amaund. Then you must talk to Nazir about your plans.
Travel to Whiterun to speak with Amaund Mautierrie who will inform you the real Emperor is on a ship, the Katariah, in the Solitude Inlets. If you ask him about Commander Maro, he will become an optional target for this quest.
To deal with Commander Maro, travel to the East Empire Company Warehouse, which puts you on the same dock with him. If you walk up to Commander Maro he will recognize you and then attack. This will allow you to kill him without earning a bounty in Solitude.
Now travel Northeast to the Emperor's ship. Swim around to the northeast part of the hull and you will find an anchor you can use to enter the ship. Make your way through the ship killing the sailors and Penitus Oculatus Agents. On the second level of the ship you'll find a ladder that leads to the deck of the ship, near that is a door to Captain Avidius quarters. Kill Captain Avidius and take the Katariah Master Key. Head to the north end of the second level of the ship to find the stairs up to the third level where the Emperor is quartered.
Move towards the Emperor and listen to him. He accepts his fate and asks of you a favor. He asks you to kill the person who ordered his own assassination. As your conversation finishes he turns his back to you and stares out the window. Kill the Emperor and go through the door next to his corpse and jump off the ship into the water.
Travel to Whiterun to meet up with Amuand and tell him Emperor Titus Mede II lies dead. He informs you that your payment lies in Volunruud inside an urn. Travel to Volunruud and return to the room you first met Amaund in, open the urn and get your 20,000 gold coins.
Now travel to the Dawnstar Sanctuary and talk to Nazir. Let him know the Emperor is dead, and how much money you earned. He recommends you talk to Delvin from the Thieves Guild in Riften to purchase upgrades for the new Dark Brotherhood Sanctuary, and ends the quest.
