F me long
Oblivion is for a bunch of nerds that live in their mothers basement... get a job and get life. All oblivion players are hairless virgins.

[[Oblivion:Jauffre|Jauffre]] is the current Grandmaster. When you first bring [[Oblivion:Brother Martin|Brother Martin]] to [[Oblivion:Cloud Ruler Temple|Cloud Ruler Temple]] during the [[Oblivion:Weynon Priory (quest)|Weynon Priory]] quest, Jauffre offers to make you a member of the Blades. You can choose whether to accept the offer or decline; if you decline, you can ask Jauffre at any later time about "Join the Blades" and become a member. Jauffre will not offer you membership if his [[Oblivion:Disposition|Disposition]] is below 40, in which case, use a [[Oblivion:Charm|Charm]] spell to temporarily boost his disposition. Also, Jauffre cannot offer you membership if he dies (which is possible during the quests [[Oblivion:The Defense of Bruma|The Defense of Bruma]] and [[Oblivion:Light the Dragonfires|Light the Dragonfires]]). If you want to eventually join the Blades, you may want to be sure to join before those quests or else keep Jauffre alive.
The primary advantage of joining the Blades is that you can use anything in Cloud Ruler Temple (beds, a [[Oblivion:Horses#Jauffre's Horse|free horse]], free weapons in the Armory, books, etc). You are given an [[Oblivion:Akaviri Katana|Akaviri Katana]] upon joining. There is no advancement in this faction, nor are there any associated quests. Although the [[Oblivion:Main Quest|Main Quest]] could be considered to be the Blades faction, it is not necessary to join the Blades to complete the main questline.
There are three total ranks in the Blades in Oblivion: Knight Sister/Brother, Captain, and Grandmaster. But only the first one is available to the player.

There are two [[Oblivion:Factions|Factions]] for the Blades. [[Oblivion:Factions_B#Blades|Blades]] contains most of the NPCs listed above whilst [[Oblivion:Factions_C#Character gen Blades faction|Character gen Blades]] contains Baurus, Glenroy and Captain Renault - the three you meet at the start of the game.
<nowiki>*</nowiki> These NPCs are not actually part of the [[Oblivion:Factions_B#Blades|Blades]] faction, but are included here for completeness.
*Though the Blades are an established authority in the Empire, they do not pursue the common duties of law enforcement: Blades will not arrest you if you are caught committing a crime or if you have a bounty on your head.
*The Order of Talos serves an auxiliary function for the Blades, secretly offering shelter and assistance to traveling Blades as well as providing a way for retired Blades to continue serving the Emperor in a more subdued fashion. A chapter-house of the Order, [[Oblivion:Weynon Priory (place)|Weynon Priory]], is involved in the Main Quest.
