This is a QOL poll
In the Dark Brotherhood DLC the Litany of Blood is a book that is magically attuned to your eyes- no one else in the game can read it for whatever reason. Maybe it's because the powers that be know you are to become a greater presence capable of the task. In any event, described in the pages are marked targets that we need to kill, and we will know who they are by the clues given and one mark in their eyes. We get certain clues, such as gender, clothing, behavior, but the most definitive of all is their eyes. Other than through self-tracking or guides that show who is on what pedistal, we have no way of knowing who we already killed.
I don't go down the list of who to kill, and I feel that if the book is truly magical it would update with some sort of congratulatory message or simply wipe the names from the NPCs I've killed. Instead we have to rely on guides. Even going up to the shade of the person we killed doesn't give us their names or locations or any sort of indicator- as seen here:
This right here is the first mark on the list from Auridon, Skywatch. After I killed her, her body glew red and appeared in the sanctuary.
And here is the book, interacted with and not looked at from shalidor's library or eidetic memory it does not acknowledge her death/soul being collected.
I personally feel they should either update the book itself, place the location or name of the mark we've already killed at their shade in the sanctuary, or create some sort of tracking that isn't dependent on third party help such as add-ons or guides. Right now, especially for people who play the game and revisit it, we sometimes forget which ones we've done or haven't done. Helping to track the kills somehow, I feel, would be of great benefit.
If you vote option 3 and something in-game already exists that I am ignorant of, please let me know in the comments.
[Dark Brotherhood Spoilers] Should the Litany of Blood update after every mark you satisfy? 9 votes
Yes, the Litany of blood should update or some other option to help track our Litany of Blood Kills should be implemented without the need for third party add-ons or guides
No, the current system is fine as-is
Something in-game already exists that the OP isn't aware of
