The Thieves' Guild is a sprawling and shadowy network of burglars, smugglers, and other criminally inclined citizens, operating wherever men gather in significant numbers. The guild traces its origin to the early days of the Empire, when the kingpins of the forty largest towns were said to form a council overseeing all illegal activity. Whatever the relationship, if any, between the Forty Thieves of yore and its current incarnation, the name persists.
|“||"You're wise beyond your years, my friend. Why not indeed? Your first opponent is a newcomer like you. Fancies himself a thief. Poor bastard thinks we live like animals, without rules and laws. He thought anyone can come here and start picking pockets without getting the guild's blessing first. So the guild turned him in."
