Jobs of the Thieves Guild adds 12 new quests that can be taken from the guildmaster. Those quests explore other avenues of the underworld such as loan sharks, prostitution, protection money and conflicts with a rival criminal organization.

Indeed, it brings back the Wharf Rats from Arena, who were the Thieves Guild's rivals. They will sometimes be the enemy in some of the quests' scenarios.

Most quests have more than one scenario so that they do not always play the same way.

Find out why a shopkeeper stopped paying for protection, recover gold from an indebted citizen, hire a wizard for the guild's protection, accompany a group of thieves in an hostage exchange with the Wharf Rats, and more.

I hope you had as much fun as I had creating these quests.

Shadow guide you.

It's possible that I will add new quests. Here are some I've thought about :

Sleepy Burglary : Know the Sleep spell? Assist a burglary by putting the owner to sleep while a fellow thief robs the place.
Gang War : Wharf Rats operatives have ambushed and killed some of your fellow thieves. Time for payback.
Jewel Heist : Participate in a heist in a jewelry store (be the runner, bagger, brute force)
The Contest : Be the first to break in a residence and steal a valuable item. It's a friendly competition against other thieves.
Shipment : Go to a farm with two other thieves and wait for a shipment. Possibility to be attacked by the Wharf Rats.
Wanted : Break into the palace and destroy a "wanted list" before it gets published.
Knight in Disguise : Impersonate a newly appointed knight at a palace to steal a noblewoman’s necklace.
Bloody Deal : Bring a vial of noble blood to a vampire hiding in a crypt.

Hi, Regnier.

Thanks for the offer. :)
I will certainly take it, since the meat of Daggerfall's quests lies in the writing more than the mechanics. I'll get back to you on which quests are not yet written.

Like I mentioned, there may be some changes to the ones I've planned as I need to test out some mechanics first.

Cheers! :D

It's a release!

I've decided to release it at 12 quests. To be honest, I was getting tired from running back and forth from the guildhall to my quest targets. I want to create quests for the other factions as well. I may still update it, though. Once a rogue, always a rogue.

Regnier, once I'll be ready to make new quests, I'll contact you. I'm sorry I hadn't before. Those 12 quests were already written. I'll keep in touch. :)

Shadow hide you.
