Shrouded Armor is Light Armor given to you by Ocheeva upon joining the Dark Brotherhood. The armor is a body suit, meaning no boots, greaves, gauntlets or cuirasses can be equipped.

Black Hand Robe and HoodEdit

The Black Hand Robes can be found in a very hard locked wine barrel at J'Ghasta's House in Bruma and in a hidden safe (picture above his bed) in Alval Uvani's House in Leyawiin. You will also receive a pair of your own when you complete the Dark Brotherhood quest line. It can also be acquired early by killing someone who is not hostile, then killing Lucien Lachance and looting his corpse. Also, when acquiring both stolen sets of robes, you can remove the stolen marker in this manner: with both sets in your inventory equip one and drop the unequipped set, then put the equipped set in a container or just drop it. Pick up the other robe set that you dropped, the stolen marker should be gone.
