Shadowmarks are a series of symbols that the Thieves Guild inscribes for a variety of reasons—usually around doors or specific buildings. They act as a series of codes that previous thieves have left to assist future thieves, such as warning of danger or pointing out houses with valuables inside. The legend for the code is outlined in a book of the same name, authored by Delvin Mallory, which is found within The Ragged Flagon - Cistern.

Marks[edit]

The marks are as follows:

  • Guild Guild: denoting the building or NPC nearby is part of the Guild.
  • Safe Safe: denoting the area is safe for the Guild.
  • Danger Danger: denoting someone nearby or inside does not take kindly to the Guild.
  • Escape Escape: denoting that following this mark leads to escape (usually from a jail cell).
  • Protected Protected: denoting the area or people are under Guild protection (usually involved in a Thieves Guild quest).
  • Fence Fence: denoting there lies a fence inside.
  • Cache Cache: denoting a Thieves Cache (usually on a barrel that appears once you finish the special job for a city).
  • Loot Loot: denoting valuables or riches lie inside or nearby.
  • Empty Empty: denoting there is nothing of value inside and has already been looked over.
