失势

——尼西里斯·利达瑞(Nithilis Lidari)

天际省的盗贼公会多少是个谜团。仅仅在短短数十年内,这个行会就从全泰姆瑞尔最大、最具影响力的犯罪组织堕落成一个只能在母城裂谷城内兴风作浪的游荡者小团体。可以解释这种急速衰落的证据从未浮出水面,但各种猜测已经四处蔓延。

一种理论认为公会受到了严重打击——许多人都相信这个公会的会长是被自己人干掉的。这个公会会长,尽管只以“加鲁斯”之名为人所知,却同天际省的诸多富于影响力的大家族有着牢固的关系纽带。他一死,那些纽带也就跟着他一起死掉了。而缺乏这些纽带,公会在天际省各处的行动就都不再安全了。

第二种理论则认为公会正在被某种神秘“诅咒”影响,结果会员原本正常的行动变得异常困难。尽管没有坚实的证据支持这一理论,最近二十年里公会在高回报抢劫行动里的失败率确实有着不同寻常地提升。这种假设中诅咒的诱因多种多样,从前面提到的那场谋杀到神灵的直接干涉。

为了一劳永逸地解开这道谜团,过去两年里我一直在对盗贼公会进行渗透。最开始要同他们在裂谷城接上头很困难,因为他们对外边的人很警惕,但通过不懈努力我总算是获得了他们的信任。我的希望是一旦能够进入公会领导层,我就能对他们的衰落获得更多的认识,然后我作品的第二卷就可以出版了。

尽管帮助公会进行小型犯罪活动让我挂上了犯罪者的污名,我倒觉得这点负担承受得很值。盗贼公会失势的秘密需要一劳永逸地解开,既是为了记录之便,也是为了给天际省的历史上留下一道注释。

Fall from Glory

Theories on the weakening of the Skyrim Thieves Guild


The Thieves Guild of Skyrim is something of an enigma. Within the last few decades, their order has gone from one of the largest, most influential criminal organizations in all of Tamriel to a small group of stragglers barely able to wreak havoc in their home city of Riften. Although evidence that could explain this rapid decline has never surfaced, speculation has run rampant.
One theory holds that the Guild suffered a loss - it's strongly believed that their Guild Master was slain by one of their own. This Guild Master, known only as "Gallus," maintained strong ties with many of the influential families in Skyrim. When he perished, those bonds perished with him. Without these bonds, the Guild could no longer safely operate within Skyrim's holds.
A second theory suggests that the Guild is experiencing some sort of mystical "curse" causing normal activities for its members to become exceedingly difficult. While there is no solid evidence to support this theory, the last two decades have seen an unusual rise in failed attempts by the Guild to execute highly lucrative heists. Reasons for the presence of this supposed curse is being attributed to everything from the aforementioned murder to divine interference.
In order to solve this mystery once and for all, I've spent the last two years infiltrating the Thieves Guild. Initially making contact with them in Riften proved difficult, as they're quite wary of outsiders, but through repeated efforts I was able to gain their confidence. It's my hope that once I've gained access to some of the Guild leadership, I can learn more about their decline and publish a second volume of my work.
Although helping the Guild perform their petty crimes brands me as a criminal, I feel that it's a burden worth bearing. The mystery of the Thieves Guild's fall from power needs to be solved once and for all as a matter of record and as a footnote to Skyrim's history.
