Honor in the Shadows is a great handout to develop more of your world, dive deeper in lore, gain more power and see the players unfold new story lines. They can join the thieves guild as there are no race/class restrictions. They can even grow in rank and even become leaders if they so desire.
This handout provides rules and suggestions to place a fully operational thieves guild in your world. In this handout I'm working from the world of Orbyss(homebrew by RedHeadGames) as so there are city names in here which might not be in your world. Feel free to adapt to fit your world.

Introduction to the Guild

Honor in the Shadows is a charitable, honorable thieves’ guild in Valh’Nerash. ‘Honor amongst thieves’ is a proverb they live by, right alongside ‘a coin in our hand is better than two in their purse’.

Honor in the Shadows make small sacrifices and pray to the Patron Saint of thievery; Lokhi. But there isn’t a required faith to join, only the right motivation.
Most cities in Valh’Nerash have a local Thieves Guild; With their headquarters bases in Vall’Nyrh.

Thieves Guild in Cities
Vall’Nyrh - The Shadow House; base of operations from a library - 50 members - Seat of Umbra Manus (From high noble family, weavable into your own plot)

Kallum - The Shadow Port; base of operations from a warehouse at the docks - 28 members

Dunn - no local guild

Seabrys - The Shadow land; Base of operation from a Inn(The golden Pegasus) - 10 members

Ritha & Ritha Mining - The Shadow Carnaval; base of operation from a house of entertainment - 18 members

Note from creator: I really wanted to create a Guild not based around murderhobos and Constantly stealing things from everybody even loved NPC. So i created a sort of old school ‘Honorable’ guild in which they even help the common people. Real Robin Hood vibe.


Honor in the Shadows

Goals and Motivation

Like most thieves’ guilds, Honor in the Shadows primarily seeks profit. However, the guild is concerned with charity, equality and righteousness. The local guilds will especially take care of their people(both within their ranks and beyond). They will keep an eye on the beggars, the poor, the homeless and the sick. If you're in dire need of help try the shadows, more often than not you’ll find that shadows can be very helpful.

They have a good understanding with most of the Sollithia temples and priests. Although the corruption and greed within the temple are a problem these days within the bigger cities, the local temples traditionally will always be there to help.


Honor in the Shadows is the latest naming of a thieves’ guild that has existed in Valh’Nerash since the Year of the Great Flood. The guild’s power came and went until the Year of the Golden Moon when a canny thief and priest of Sollithia named Ryota became guildmaster.

Ryota foresaw a good future for the guild if the members would embrace the charitable character of the guild. To be honorable, to care about more than gold.
Soly greed would corrupt the soul but Ryota believed seeking riches while using a part to help the less fortunate would only bring a more pleasant mortal life on this plane for all involved. No corruption of the soul, no eternal damnation.

He introduced them to his old friends from the Sollithia temple in the city. Ryota renamed the guild to Honor in the Shadows as a homage to his beliefs that they should always honor humanity and steal only with a conscience.

Since then, the guild grew in power, acquiring a great deal of wealth and creating permanent safehouses even in the neighboring cities. It has been many years since Ryota became Guildmaster and since then there have been a few others.
Currently the Grand Guild Master is “Umbra Manus”. Except for a very select few nobody knows who Umbra Manus, mostly referred to as Umbra, really is. The rumor is that they are a big shot from a high noble family….

Methods and Activities

Honor in the Shadows recruit new members primarily from younger folk in the different cities in Valh’Nerash.
Especially Kallum and Vall’Nyrh bring in many new recruits. But anybody can gain the trust of the guild and work their way up to becoming a member.

Since many of the guild’s common thieves are in their teenage years or younger, the guild is well known to younger folk. Its leaders are often looked upon as heroes or role models. Especially since they teach the young ones not only thieves skills but send them to the temple of Sollithia to learn to read and write.
They also have connections with many more teachers to accommodate the talents of the kids; sometimes this is indeed the talent of sleight of hand but it can also be a kid with a talent for herbalism or even healing.
The guild also accepts older members, as long as they are willing to help the locals.

As well as common theft, Honor in the Shadows its main activities include protection rackets and forgery; nearly half of Kallum’s businesses pay something on a monthly basis to the guild. Honor in the Shadows carry on the long tradition of finding maps of old ruins, castles, or dungeons. Maps of more civilized era’s are often created by the guild, either by making copies of existing maps or making clever forgeries.

It's not uncommon members have made pacts with Lokhi, the patron saint of thievery but some made pacts with fiends, other deities or spirits.



Honor in the Shadows is organized like a classical thieves’ guild, there is a strong central organization and authority(Grand Guild Master) in the thieves’ guild, whose rules are readily accepted by all.

The Grand Guild Master is aided by some right hands, some veteran thieves, and on the bottom rank, many simple thieves. However, there is room for some ‘local latitude’.
Every local guild operation has its own right hand, Guild leaders. They have a certain amount of freedom to rule their guild to see fit as long as they abide by the coreprincepals.
A new guildmaster is selected by the most senior members of the guild.

Thieves’ Guilds and the Law

In Valh’Nerash there is a variety in the relationship between the law and the thieves guild. The law is very strict on thieves, and penalties for thievery are fairly harsh. However, most of the time law officers feel they might have better things to do then deal with thieves, especially in a city where the guild takes good care of the lower layer of society. A thief then might get away with handing over the spoils and/or paying a fine. Most members of the guild may even have a secret regard for the law: the law is firm but fair and not excessively harsh.

But in some cities the dominant relationship between thieves and law officers is corruption. Here bribes are paid to law officers on a regular basis. Of course not all officers are corrupt but when the local guild has enough financial means they might easily avoid being charged with almost anything. Does a member still end up in prison? The guard will either help smuggle him out or when paid give detailed instructions how to do so. Some law officers could also be members of the guild and help keep up appearances.

Thieves’ Guilds and Merchants

The relations between the thieves guild and the merchants in Valh’Nerash is complex to say the least. Some merchants are members and help with fencing or procuring special items. Others try real hard to fend off thievery while the last group isn’t a member but harbors members of the guild and pays them off.

Thieves’ Guilds and Freelance Thieves

Honor in the Shadows has a firm policy on freelance thieves; The thieves’ guild hunts freelancers, and they have just one choice: join or die (or leave the city, in some cases).


Guild Membership

Benefits of Guild Membership

Being an official member earns you the right to share in the profit but you’re required to pay your dues. Standard guilds dues are always subtracted from the arnings. This way the earnings are as they come; the player knows they pay dues but in game you don’t see what or how to keep it simple.

Equipment & Fencing
Being a member of Honor in the Shadows means gaining access to rare items that aren’t usually found on the open market, both mundane and magical. The players can request certain items at the local guild leader or the specific merchant. The players can also sell a lot through the guild’s fance merchants or other members with specialties(such as a herbalist)
The guild always has a member(usually a senior merchant or the guild leader itself) who can accurately value items,gems,scrolls or even magic items. Also some members maybe able to cast ‘Detect Magic’ to identify magic items.

Note from the creator: As a DM you can then decide to make a quest out of it(the party needs to help retrieve the item), simply wait a x amount of time and then purchase for gold or the merchant may even disappear on his quest for the party’s item and they need to go and save him!
I’m a big fan of being generous with magic items; players want to feel cool and epic in a game now, not only when they lvl 20. You can also homebrew a monster to be a bit tougher or adjust the damage but keep the coolness of a magic item.

Help with the Law
The guild may be able to help its members when they have a run in with the law. Guards can be bribed or pursued or if the players are loved even a prison liberation might be planned.

The guild can provide its members with useful information. This can be maps, information about persons, layouts of buildings, delivery times, blackmail information and a lot more is possible! These can be used for thefts or traded with others in exchange for gold, magic items, or other secret information.

Specialist Help
The guild can also act to put its members in touch with specialists to help them with specific ventures in more direct ways. You can think of downtime training, side quest, personal plot and more.

The guild is a perfect place for characters to train or gain levels or new abilities.
When joining the guild you get a permanent +2 on Deception. Throughout the guild players can find trainers to increse their skill in something.
Note from the creator: You can even make this a group side quest; If somebody wants to increase they intimidation skills for example you as DM could state that the person most qualified for that lives in city “blabla” xx hours away.

Limited Territory
Some aera’s or places are off limits for members of the Guild. As a DM you can easily determine that in a place you need important plot to happen there is a no go zone due to a deal with a certain noble.

All guild members must keep the identity of other members secret from outsiders! Without trust and secrecy all members would be known to the public. All members do have a special magical ink tattoo.
Tap on it three times and whisper “Honor in the shadows” it will light up for a short amount of time. It only works when the player who is a member does it himself.
If the player is close to somebody who is from the guild the tattoo will tingle, if they tap it 3x and hold it to the other person's hand they both light up as well.

Training and Working
All guild members must spend a fair(DM’s call) amount of time working for the guild. The guild is not a free pass to enjoy all benefits; there is work to be done.
This can mean collecting money from merchants, doing guild jobs(protecting this/stealing that etc) or even cleaning the guild it self…As long as the players are involved and committed to help.


Test of Loyalty

All new members must pass a special loyalty test. After that they could pledge to Lokhi, the Patron Saint of Thievery but that is not required.

The test of loyalty consists of 4 tests matching the core values of the guild: “Honor” “Loyalty” “Skill”.

The Test
Start: Either let the local guild leader already have the potion or make the players get it. After they drink a drop of the potion they fall into a deep dream like an illusion.
Let them throw an insight check > Above 15 they know it's a dream, below no idea they think it's real.

If the players choose wrong/fail a part of the test they get a knife strike on the cheek(that will be visible outside of the illusion too). After 3 wrong choices/actions, they can not join the guild.

Test 1: HONOUR
Choose the right contract

Contract 1; Urchin Jaccobo is adopted by a noble family and got so many presents for his welcome home celebration. Steal those presents, he doesn’t need them anyway.

Contract 2: A noble lady is arriving and is rumored to have a lot of fancy jewelry. Go steal those

Contract 3; A corrupt guard is bribing townsfolk for protection, steal the money and giving them a message.

Both number 2 and 3 are good contracts that support honor. 3 is the best option but 2 is acceptable. If they choose 1 they fail and can retry with other 2.
If they choose one they can complete it by playing it out.
note from creator: I use the dream to have things move quickly, no travel just they turn around and whabam they are ar a guards house. It makes things quicker.

Secret meeting with all known thieves guild members(you can add your own names) and the players hear commotion outside.
Local knight is asking for people to help the justice system; to rat out “Names of a few local thieves' members”. The one who tells them where they are right now will get 15000 g, free alcohol in tavern for a lifetime and power in the city.
But the thieves guild members will be executed right one the spot.
Goal is to make a ridiculous offer to lure the player to ‘betray’ the guild. The knight will push and push till the player gives in or the knight will execute the player snapping back to the room of the local guild.

Test 3:SKILL
Pick the right chest
1 is cursed
1 is a mimic
1 is the right one
Let the players use their skills to find the right chest. Do they open the wrong one(either painful curse only in dreamworld or they can fight a mimic) Do they open the right one all is black and they see/hear the following question:

Test 4: What are the core values of the guild?
The answer is: Honor, loyalty and skill. But thievery or perception is also acceptable.
When they succeeded they wake up half, strapped to a chair, a local member putting a tattoo on their hands. That is the sign/icon of the local guild. When it's finished it will light up and then disappear

Breaking the Oath
The guild has an uncompromising attitude for members who break the rules, that is most of the time. The punishment is harsh but always within reason and the guild accounts for how much of it is due to the members fault or was there a bigger picture why said member broke the rules. For minor cases the guild could ask for additional work or payment. For more serious cases, the member might face specialty jobs with serious risk and no sharing in the loot. The most dire cases (such a treason) most likely result in exile or even worse…death….


Rank and Renown

The more the player plays and interacts with the guild the more important they can become.
They might rise in the ranks, who know they might eventually become the guildmaster themselves. The renown score of the player measures the status in the guild. As they increase that score, they gain chances and opportunities to advance through the ranks of the guild.

When a player joins the guild, their renown score is 1. The renown score increases by 1 when a player does something in the guild’s interests. Of Course the other members should be aware of what the player are trying to do.
If a player/party completes a job or a task from the guild the renown will increase by 2. Its at the liberty of the DM what other things can also improve renown. Could be having a charming drink with the leader or giving him a homebrew beer; the sky's the limit! In downtime socializing with other members will increase the renown with 1 if at least 3 members have been socialized with.

Benefits of Renown
The more renown players got the more benefit they gain and can climb into the ranks

The player starts and is accepted into the thieves guild. The renown score is 1. Most other members are weary of them, gaining trust and socializing should be a priority.

Losing Renown
If you commit a serious offense against your guild or its members, or if you break the oath of loyalty, you might lose renown within the thieves’ guild. The extent of loss depends on the infraction and is left to the DM’s discretion. However, your renown score can never drop below 0. If your renown drops below the threshold for a rank or privilege you have attained, you lose that benefit. Even if you regain the lost renown, you might find it more difficult to again secure a position or rank you have previously lost.

Flash Powder
This special powder made by one of the top secret alchemists within the guild is a concockture of all sorts of ingredients. Things that allegedly go in are pepper, ammonium salt and there is even rumor that the scales of a vile reptile is used. As an action you can throw this power up to 20feet. You need to make a ranged attack against a creature. You can treat the powder as an improvised weapon. On a hit the target is blinded for 1 minute. The target creature can end this effect if they use their action to make a succesfull DC15 CON check.

Climbing Gear Extravaganza
You’ve heard of climbing gear but this one is a bit more special. Beside the standard 30feet rope you will get a set of daggers, a small grappling and a ‘swift escape’. The daggers are about 8inches and are flat with a flat broad handle. The daggers are stiff and you can easily wedge them between stones, wood, any surface that entir;y smooth or sturdy as diamont. The mini grappling isn’t strong enough to hold you but it can shoot up small things such as a message or a rock or make even a smoke bomb. Last but not least you’ll have the ‘swift escape’ which is a neatly folded blanket. Hold it on the handles and jump off any surface higher than 45 feet and the blanket will unfold making sure you land softly on your feet.

Cloud slippers
Made by a wizard long ago for his king who lived in his golden palace so the King would finally hear silence, luckily the guild found out how to make those lovely slippers.

Glass Cutter
It's made in collaboration by miners and engineers; It's a tiny piece of Diamond cut in a very sharp edged shape and usually comes with small pieces of metal around it so you can use it almost like a pen. The diamont will cut through any mundane glass without making a noise.

Keymaking Kit
Very straight forward thieves tools; a kit to duplicate and reproduce keys. The kit used wax bars and several metal cases to duplicate a key. It takes 1 hour to duplicate a key. All keys can be duplicated except for the skeleton key; magic keys can be duplicated but there will be no magical effect. Be careful where to store the duplicate keys; if its gets to hot they might melt!.

Hear Ear
Originally used for an old blacksmith, this Hear Ear is a big brass cone. The small end goes to your ear, the big end goes to whatever surface you try to listen behind or in a general direction to eavesdrop on people’s conversations. You gain advantage on hearing based WIS (Perception) checks.

Magnifying Glass
Straight forward magnifying glass. When you use it to inspect things with it you can advantage on your INT roll.

Skeleton Key

Powder against the seeker
Wondrous item, common

History of the religions

In days long gone there was only twilight, a glimmer over this world that made triving difficult. The world wasn’t growing as the gods has planned but slowly just giving up. The twilight held everything back until a god descended down to the people.

The first to descend down was Sollithia, a bright shining woman with flaming red hair drove the twilight away. Her body so illuminating the twilight scurried away and left for good. The people rejoiced and thanked her. She gave the people the sun, the daylight so they may see, grow and flourish.

She then ascended again, but the world still didn’t grow. It grew a bit but then started to wither again, to much sun and light where negatively affected the people and its living things. Organisms didn’t stop growing and it gave all sort of problems. It was then a second god descended upon the world; the god Nox.

He was a ebony figure with Raven head. People did not rejoice around him. People did not seem pleased, they seemed scared for the darkness he brought with him. But he gave the world the Night, the moon and he gave then death and decay.

People feared him and prayed to Sollithia why she led him towards them.

But Nox did good for the world, because of his night there was rest…because of his moon there was movement in the ocean…because of his death life became precious and became valued…and because of his decay there was fertility, growth and a circle of life.

It was only after a long time people saw and recognized what Nox had done for them. It was then they started to build templed in his name. They focus on the circle of life, knowing that life only has value when death is part of it.

The goddess of the sun. She has the power to let the sun rise, to let the flowers bloom and blossom. She had the power of life, birth and love.
She is pictured like a beautiful angel dressed in light yellow cloth wrappings, she has long red hair and she has six arms one for each virtue. In some literature she has in each hand an object connected to virtue.

Wisdom(Byw, a traditional Flute (looks like a sort of lute))
Love(a heart)
Growth (a sapling)
Hope(a dove)
Patience( a hourglass)
Temperance(a jug with water)

People who follow her beliefs are kindhearted people who will help human, flora and fauna allike; because all needs the suns power to flourish.

The traditional nuns/monks are dressed in a bright yellow robe with orange sash embroidered with a sun with six arms, the icon for Sollithia.
The people who follow her are forgiving and their focus is to works with the planet not use its inhabitants or fauna for own gain. They do not condone war or violence but they do not chose a side in conflict. All are welcome in they monasteries to rest and heal.
Some humans/creatures/persons are born imbued with the magic from Sollithia herself, they can come to the monastery and train to be a healer. The healers guild from Sollithia is famous for its amazing work almost always free of charge.

Is a festival that celebrated love and music through feast. It occurred between Flamerule 30 and Eleasis 1 on the Calendar of Harptos. It was a time when love advanced, and it was said the deities themselves took a hand to ensure good weather. If bad weather was experienced on this night it was considered an extremely bad omen. Shieldmeet occurred the day after Midsummer on leap years.
Midsummer is a important day for worshippers of Sollithia. On this day they preform a large ritual involving music, special dance and offerings to the goddess of the Sun.



Dawa Lunaris, she is the head of the family and resides in Lunaris temple high up north. Although she is the head of the family and by that the ‘archbishop’ she is a very accessible person, loving and caring for all living organisms. She still ,even though she is 86 years old, gives a mass a day and does the ritual of remembrance when the festival of the moon is here.

Nox is The god of the night.He has the power to let the night come,to rise the darkness and is he pleases he can let the moon rise to. He has the power to decay, destroy. The power over death and rot.
He is pictured like a man with long limbs and long thing fingers. His head is that of a Raven, his black feather seemingly flowing from his head into a mantle.

He is pictured only with black withering cloth wrapping around his long legs. In his slender fingers he holds a thick chain which drags a massive iron plague over the ground.

On the plague the 6 sins are pictured each with their own symbol.
Ignorance (a blindfold)
Malice (a flame)
Withering (a withered sapling)
Deceit (a dove)
Greed (a narcissus(flower))
Gluttony(a fat pig)

The people who follow his beliefs are not evil contrary to the gossip. Believers in Nox only believe that life is a full circle; there needs to be death in order to live. They take care of the darker part of life. They take care of the terminally ill, the dead, the mausoleums. They help control the flora and fauna and yes this does mean they kill or burn parts of land to make room for new life.

The people who follow him usually work as monks/nuns that embalm the dead. They have a neutral stance against violence because it is what is necessary to bring balance.
Priests of Nox usually are humble and dedicate their life to the circle of life, helping the sick and the poor. A Nox priest will more likely give their own bread away to help another. Most are a bit introverted and do not talk much. The traditional robes are black with a raven medallion of embroidered sash.

Humans/creatures/persons imbued with the magic of Nox can come to train as Nightshaders; ones specialize in the darker form of magic such as necromancie, decay magic or more. There aren't much of those around. The ones that are there help with their magic mostly to make sure the justice system is honest(conjuring ghost of the deceased to speak at trial) lets hope no one with get more darker power lusted ideas....

Alternative Names for Nox
Bringer of darkness
King of the night
The dark one
The ebony king
The unseen one

The Feast of the Moon
Also known as Moonfest, was an annual festival in the Calendar of Harptos, occurring between the final night of Uktar and the first day of Nightal. It was the last great festival of the calendar year.

The day traditionally marked the onset of winter. It was also a time to celebrate and honor the ancestors and the respected dead. On this day, folk blessed their ancestors' graves and performed the Ritual of Remembrance. People also gathered to tell stories of the deeds of their ancestors and of the gods until deep into the night, until they merged and became legend. This was a time to hear of past heroes, great treasures, and lost cities.
The followers of Nox are very busy on this day performing Rituals of Remembrance, guiding people on the temple of Nox in prayer, gathering stories and honoring the dead.

The rumour
Since the first appearance of Nox there is a rumor written down in the ancient books. In the library of Lunaris Temple the original book can still be found.
After Nox was gone some people believe what he had given them was just a fraction of his power…That the true power lies in Death, Decay and Destruction. That Nox was a mere facade to test the foolish people, to separate the wheat from the cover…Until the people truly worthy of the real power would present themself. It is said a splinter group of followers dove deeper in this myth, to summon the ‘real’ god of Death.
There isn’t much else known about this group except its seems connected with dark and evil magic, with evil necromancy, foul creatures offspring of Kenku(Raven like folk) and a lot of causes it has been connected with a symbol of an open eye…Some even say a whisper of a name…but non dare write that down….

1 The Duke of a local region is supposedly traveling through a dense forest tomorrow. He is known to travel with all kinds of riches. (What the players don't know is, the Duke had already been robbed when he and his men entered the forest. The "Duke and his guards" are members of a rival Thieves Guild pretending to be them so they don't rouse a suspicion. The real Duke is currently tied up in a chest that a horse is carrying behind them.)
2 Your guild has encountered some unwanted smuggling competition in the city. Your job is to ransack their base of operations and leave before dawn. Reward is 100GP per member. Bonus 50 gold per member if they leave no survivors and take everything of value back to the guild.
3 Constable Viread has been overly energetic in apprehending members of the guild, despite generous donations to the Constabulary Benevolence Fund. His higher-ups have been unable to curb his excesses. The Guild therefore authorizes its members to bring to light any salacious details that if brought to the public might cause the good constable to reconsider his zealotry. Any member that can supply relevant information (credible, though not necessarily verifiable) or is responsible for causing an incriminating scandal will be generously compensated by the Guild.
4 It's rumored that the fabled Black Raven is in town. Find out who has it, where is it being kept, and steal it for us! (The statuette is a fake, unless it isn't, in which case it's cursed) (Loosely based on a continuing arch in the Quest for Glory series)
5 Two Daggers, one of our esteemed colleagues is currently imprisoned. He has sensible information that we wouldn't want the royal guards to get a hold of. We need you to help us free him. And if this is not possible, to silence him.
6 One of our members, Gideon Dance, is getting married and going straight(ish). His bride is the only daughter of a powerful merchant, and the two will make a great pair. There's only one problem- the local captain of the guard is a spurned admirer of Gideon's wife-to-be, and is assembling evidence to arrest Gideon on the day of the wedding. We need you to steal the evidence from the Captain's Chambers in the guardhouse and replace it with evidence that's clearly fraudulent.
7 Someone is robbing temples and beating priests and supplicants half to death. We are being blamed for it, which is destroying all the goodwill we had with the common folk. Besides, we're thieves, not animals. Find who is truly responsible for this, whether in the guild or out. Bring them alive to the Beggar's Court to be charged for their crimes.

8 My friend, what I shall tell you now, is between you, me, and no one else. Let's just say this is out of the ordinary, even for us.' Your master leans forward conspiratorially, as if that could stop the eyes and ears of your guild. Maybe he wants them to hear. 'I suspect we have a snitch in our midst, [PC]. Someone who alerted the city watch to our plans regarding Duchess Esmerala's jewelry.' He squints at you, then smirks. 'Red Dagger even suggested it could be you. But I assured him my trust in you is well placed. Find me the true culprit, [PC], and be wary of Red Dagger.'

11 It's come to our attention that at least half of the art work the guild has fenced in the past decade have been forgeries painted by the Halfling Edalquick Keeneye. While Guildmaster Venix is highly impressed with the genius of the Keeneye's talent, it has cost the guild an enormous sum and more importantly hurt our reputation. Please impress upon Master Keeneye the magnitude of his debt. He can pay off his debt by working for the guild or he can pay with his life. In addition, members who carry out this task and can discover the location of the original artwork can retain a portion of value of the final sale.
12 Many of our members are ending up snatched up by guards soon after completing officially sanctioned jobs, one even arrived at the mark's house to find a group of guards waiting for him. We suspect there is a mole in our midst. The latest casualty is a man who led an airtight second-life as a public notary. Find the mole and bring them to the master.
13 The Guild has had a string of recent acquisitions go bad. Best we can gather from the boys is that something is prowling around out there at night, breaking into wizard shops and causing the guards to be called. You'd think all them arcane entrapments would keep ne'erdowells out wouldncha - turns out whatever this thing is is slipping in and out, quiet like a mouse. However, as you know, more guards can quickly ruin a night of business what with all the patrols and all. We checked with the Bilgerats at the docks and the Dunders out in the hills, neither of them are claiming anything (and frankly I don't think they have the ... sophistication to pull something like that off. Here's where you come in. Go out there, and find me whoever is causing it.
14 The Guild Leader is getting married and wants to celebrate it traditionally.

16 The Red Rogue, also known as Rogue Rouge, an infamous master thief who disappeared years ago, has approached the guild in his dying days for one last heist before he dies. The target? City Hall. Mark? The mayor, Rogue Rouge's lifelong archrival since his thieving days started. The score? Burning the mayoral veranda atop the building, raise the Red Rogue's cape on the flagpole instead of the city flag, and lastly: steal the mayoral chair, his absolute favorite. The reward? Possibly bountiful; a clue to where Rogue Rouge keeps his famous stash - the entirety of his legendary wealth - free for the taking, if you can find it. The catch? Rogue Rouge wants to join in on the heist with you, despite his many age- and health-related issues. You'll be playing with a handicap.
17 The Baron Autcort has been a thorn in the country's collective backside for too long. We have been waging war on his business interests for months now, and you are perfect to help.

18 Irving “Candy Man” Hornblath is to come into a fair amount of wealth due to a lottery which the kingdom participates in annually. Irving, a corrupt small time gangster, extorted the voucher from it’s rightful owner, a kind fence with with whom the guild frequents business with. The winnings in this year’s pot: 10,000 gp. Usually the guild would see that Hornblath die immediately, but seeing as he has kidnapped The Fence’s child, the guild must ensure the child’s safe return, which means following Irving back to his safe house in the capital. Irving has insisted that upon completion of exchanging the voucher he will return the child, safely. Word is, if Irving dies, the gang at the safe house has orders to kill the child. Fortunately for the guild, the Candy Man is in need of hired muscle to protect his proof of Lottery winning, the voucher which he will be taking the capital to cash. Word is he’s already hired 6 men to keep him safe on his Journey to the capital, but with the right paperwork “provided” by the guild, your party may be able to accompany him as additional hired muscle. The goal: infiltrate the candyman’s team, see to it that Irving Never sees a coin of lottery gold, and accompany him to the capital and save the child, whose location is currently in the Capital and unknown. That voucher is rightful property of the guild, on behalf of the dark mother. Finish this.

19 An ex-guard has recently opened a bakery with his retirement money, embezzled from the taxes of the common folk. Word is, in his senility he claims day-in and day-out that someone has been “stealing his sweet rolls.” This has created a perfect alibi for the guild. Fortunately, due to an old adventuring injury, the ex-guard walks with a limp and is slow as well as senile. However his defenses for this bakery have been rumored to include currently-enrolled city guards and enchantments/booby traps to deter thieves. Steal the next shipment of his sweet rolls and return them to the towns people. Avoid detection. The town must continue to think he is going mad. Bankrupt this old man and return his wealth to the guild for distribution to the common-folk.

Since a number of these animals are personally prized by the Princess Volveta, discretion is highly encouraged.
27 A junior burglar got too ambitious and succeeded in nabbing a macguffin from a local unaligned and slightly unhinged necromancer. Which is bad news. Break in to the necromancer's tower and return it, and leave no trace that anything was ever taken.
28 Our store room and safehouse in the sewers have been overrun by troglodytes. It won't be long before they attract the attention of the citizens aboveground, and with them the law. If the space were discovered, it would seriously hamper our smuggling activities. Let's do the city a service and protect our interests at the same time. Clear out the sewers of troglodytes and anyone else who you find. And we mean everyone. No bleeding hearts for this one.
29 A competing thieves guild - The Black Club - has started operating in the city. They're young, greedy and not very subtle. Their propensity for violence has brought an uncomfortable amount of attention from the City Watch on all thieves. What's worse, they are scaring off potential marks and pulling profit from our pockets. Something has to be done. An all out guild war would only be more costly, and bodies showing up in the street will only bring down the wrath of the Watch. A more subtle approach is needed. Find out who The Black Club are, who leads them and where they operate from. Kill their leader and set up the rest of them so that the Watch either puts them in jail for a long time, or calls in the hangman.
30 The King's Golden Mile - the richest horse race in the kingdom - is due to be held in three days. The guildmaster's horse - Silent Shadow - is one of a dozen competing. The prize is 10,000gp and the guild has used its pull with the bookies to make sure the odds on Shadow are favourable. The fix is on. The guild has used its sway to make sure that eight of the runners aren't going to win. That only leaves three more horses to fix to ensure an easy victory for Shadow. That's where you come in. You can use bribery, intimidation, violence or magic on the owners, trainers or jockeys, good old fashioned horse knobbling, or any other method you want, but make sure that Silent Shadow wins. The guildmaster will reward you handsomely when he does.
31 A young scholar, an acolyte to the Halls of Illumination has been studying Thieves Cant. Before he can receive his robes of matriculation, he is scheduled to present his research at a public lecture. While very few people ever show up to these lectures, nonetheless we cannot risk that information being disseminated! The guild has secured a rare memory-effecting serum that specifically targets language learning and which should render all attempts to use secondary languages to gibberish. Introduce the serum in his drink and ensure it has taken effect—he is known to frequent The Finch & Fork. Many a scholar has cracked under the pressure of tedious research, so while a murder might arouse suspicion, his mental faculties abandoning him would not. Then collect and destroy all of the acolyte’s notes and research. Not a scratch should remain. We have our suspicions who might be his informant, but if you discover any details that points to a source, pass that information along as well.

34 (Heist accounting books from midboss's guarded office.) "We think one of our managers is not giving the uppers their full cut. Go around to the manager's office and find his real books. And watch yourself, because of the war going on between some of the upper offices, the manager's place is well staffed with enforcers at the moment. You might be able to bribe the one called Bobby Brighteyes into leaving his shift early - he's had his eye on the manager's job for a while - but he isn't going to help you if you get caught. We recommend you go when the manager is at his girlfriend's place. He takes some enforcers with him as guards, so staff at the office gets thinner."
35 (Administer a beating to thief stealing from guild) "One of your brothers/sisters helped him/herself to a bit of shipment he/she was supposed to retrieve for the family. Get some strong friends and "explain" the consequences of stealing from family. Don't go too far, buzzards circling would bring unwanted heat on your brothers and sisters. Here's their hideout location."
36 (Steal from a former thief or turn in quest giver for a greater reward) "Your target is a former thief, now retired. He's got quite the collection of tools and artifacts from his thieving days, but he's gone soft in the head and never will know they're missing. None of his family have aptitude either, so the tools will be wasted on them." The quest giver will give you second pick of the tools you take and minimum 50% of the haul's value or higher. The elderly former thief does have dementia but is kindly. You may choose to rat out the quest giver to a thieves' guild superior or to the ex-thief's adult child caretaker. The ex-thief's former apprentice is high up on the guild's ladder and will give you a better reward for maintaining his master's dignity.)

A valuable air elemental we've been using to unlock tricky vaults from the inside got frightened by a nasty static shock and bolted during a mansion heist that overlapped with a choir practice recital. Thanks to that, our safetalker had to leave early and empty-handed. We've got word from a competent seer that the elemental is laying low in one of the choir member's lungs. The choir's main public performance is tomorrow, and then the group splits up a hundred ways. We have once chance. Here's a sack of sneezing powder. Just get the elemental to touch the bottle to get it back in. There's no way to do this quietly, so just get it over with quickly and bounce. We'll rendezvous at a cabin out of town."

39 The royal alchemist has developed a truth potion so potent it threatens the very existence of the guild. This potion not only forces someone to tell the truth, but it compels them to be as helpful as possible to the questioner. What's worse, it seems that no amount of magic or mental training can resist it. It's only a matter of time before the Royal Guard captures a guild member and uses it on them, revealing the whole operation. We need you to break into the alchemist's apartments and find the formula for the potion so a counter agent can be developed. Failing that, either kill or kidnap the alchemist. Oh, and grab as much of this truth potion as you can find - no use letting it go to waste.
