Detailed Walkthrough[edit]

The Orders[edit]

Sjoring Hard-Heart in the Vivec Guild of Fighters wants you to kill the Master Thief of the Thieves Guild.

Kill the Master Thief[edit]

Gentleman Jim Stacey can be found at Simine Fralinie's bookstore in the Vivec Foreign Quarter Canalworks. He is behind the locked door in the back of the bookshop. Frenzy Humanoid or Taunt can be used to force him to strike first, in order to avoid any negative consequences when killing him. Attacking him outright will incur a Bounty on your head and cause Crazy-Legs Arantamo to become hostile.

When you return to Sjoring Hard-Heart, he will immediately attack, arguing that you are a threat to his position. Defeat him to become Master of the Fighters Guild.

What if you are the Master Thief?[edit]

If you have already become Master Thief in the Thieves Guild, you'll have the option of confessing this to Sjoring Hard-Heart, which will trigger him to attack you.
