许多调查者都试图解开关于盗贼公会的谜团.尽管有事实已经一再证明了盗贼公会存在的种种不可能,但是有关他们的传闻还在继续着.只要历史学家们去寻找关于这个藏在阴影底下组织的线索时,结果通常是徒劳无获.同样目击者也不知道任何关于这个组织的事情.在他们有可能的藏身所里是空的,他们的赃物收购者则可能摇身变成普通的商人.

现在我要澄清一下的是,盗贼们是确实存在的.他们在横跨Tamriel大陆的各个地牢中腐烂.当然盗贼们通常都会结伙一起犯罪.一些已记录在册的案例表明一伙盗贼可能会形成一个长期稳固的帮会,在帮会里盗贼们通常会合作几年一起进行偷窃或是其它的犯罪行为.

但是,公会和普通的帮会不一样.公会也意味着它是一个有着会员名单的组织,它也会有自己的经济系统,这个系统应该包括了会员们的会费或者是其它手段得取的保障资金.公会也需要规定一个会员们必须遵守的行为准则而且工会内部有着不同层次的管理人和执行人.在这个层次结构中将会存在地位的晋升或是继承.

有一个关于晨风地区存在盗贼公会的最好案例.在很短的一段时间内,Jim Stacey阁下经营着一个盗贼圈,他们专抢这个岛屿国度上富裕的商人和贵族.在最近发生的尼瑞瓦因(Nevarine)事件的同时,战士工会和那个隐秘的莫拉格帮(Morag Tong)出手清理了这帮暴徒.关于Jim Stacey自己最后的命运我们目前还不是很清楚.

晨风地区的盗贼公会的确拥有着自己的经济体系和管理阶层.它符合了成为一个真正公会的大部分条件.但是,它存在时间并不长.公众都知道Stacey的团伙最多只持续了短短的几年.尽管目前战士公会声称接受了要把盗贼公会彻底清除的委托,但一些历史学家还是认为这仅仅会让那个组织把自己变得更为隐秘.

关于确定盗贼公会不存在而引出的问题是符合逻辑的.我不能证明盗贼公会的确存在也不可能最后认为盗贼公会不存在,这也使得历史学家们不能记载下其中的一种情况.

如果盗贼公会的确在Cyrodiil地区运作的话,那么有人肯定会认为犯罪行为一定会很猖獗,但实际上不是这样的.盗贼自身的本质使得他们不会真正地相信对方即便他们已经在一起合作多年.盗贼也是天生的规则破坏者.因此,如果所有公会成员都是盗贼的话那么这个有着公会规则的组织也将会随之而终.以上几点理由足以使我为现代Cyrodiil地区盗贼公会的存在这个问题而作辩论.

注释:

盗贼公会—————-TES系列的几大公会之一,玩家在上古卷轴2,3,4中都可加入此公会.这个公会的规则一般是:1.不准偷公会成员的物品.2,不能袭击公会成员.3,不能偷穷人的物品,专偷富人.4,在执行公会任务时不能用暴力解决问题.

莫拉格帮(Morag Tong)—————晨风地区传统黑精灵的杀手组织.

尼瑞瓦因(Nevarine)———————-上古卷轴3的主角,玩家扮演的人物.被认为是第一纪元黑精灵领袖尼瑞瓦的转世.

Myth or Menace?
Conjecture as to the existence of a modern Thieves Guild

Many investigators have attempted solve the riddle of the Thieves Guild. Despite repeated proofs that no viable Thieves Guild exists, the rumors persist. Whenever historians search for evidence of this shadowy organization, nothing is found. Witnesses know nothing. Safe houses are empty. Fences turn out to be simple businessmen.
Let me clarify by stating that thieves most certainly do exist. They rot in dungeons all across Tamriel. Certainly bands of thieves work together to commit crimes. On rare occasions there has even been documented cases were persistent bands of thieves have worked together for years at a time committing thefts and other crimes.
However, a guild is different than a band. A guild implies an organization with membership rolls. It would have a financial structure, which would include member dues or some other means of securing funds. It would have rules of conduct or behavior. It would have a hierarchical leadership structure. Within this structure there would be methods of advancement and succession.
The best documented case of a Thieves Guild was found in Morrowind. For a brief time Gentleman Jim Stacey ran a ring of thieves that robbed wealthy merchants and nobles all across that nation. During the recent Nevarine [sic] incident, the Fighters Guild and the shadowy Morag Tong eliminated this band of thugs. The final fate of Jim Stacey himself is not known.
The Morrowind Thieves Guild did have a financial structure and a leadership structure. It satisfied many of the conditions of a true guild. However, it was short lived. Public knowledge of Stacey's group lasted for only a few years at most. Although the Fighters Guild has claimed credit for wiping them out, some historians believe the group merely went deeper undercover.
The problem with determining the non-existence of the Thieves Guild is quite logical. It is not possible to prove a negative. I cannot prove definitively that the Thieves Guild does not exist, only that historians have been unable to document one.
If a Thieves Guild were to be operational in Cyrodiil, one would think that crime would be rampant, which it is not. The very nature of thieves makes it impossible for them to trust one another sufficiently to work together for very long. By nature a thief is a rule breaker. Therefore an organization that has rules would fail if allit's [sic] members were thieves. For these reasons, I dispute the existence of a modern day Thieves Guild in Cyrodiil.
