Quick Walkthrough[edit]

  1. Talk to Sjoring Hard-Heart for orders.
  2. Kill Gentleman Jim Stacey at Simine Fralinie's bookstore in the Foreign Quarter Canalworks.
  3. Return to Sjoring, who will attack you, and kill him to complete the quest.

Detailed Walkthrough[edit]

The Orders[edit]

Sjoring Hard-Heart in the Vivec Guild of Fighters will ask you to kill the Master Thief once you've killed the three Thieves Guild bosses.

Kill the Master Thief[edit]

Gentleman Jim Stacey can be found at Simine Fralinie's bookstore in the Vivec Foreign Quarter Canalworks. Stacey is behind the locked door in the back of the bookshop. Again, you will be charged with the murder and have a bounty once you attack him. Once he is dead, Crazy-Legs Arantamo will attack you. Both of these results can be avoided if you use Frenzy Humanoid or Taunt to get Stacey to attack you first.

When you return to Sjoring, he will attack you, arguing that you are a threat to his position. After you beat him, you will be the Master of the guild.

What If You Are the Master Thief?[edit]

If you've already become the guildmaster of the Thieves Guild yourself (Hard-Heart won't be aware yet), you'll have the option of confessing this to him, which will also trigger him to attack you.
