沃夫梅尔的盗窃精通指南

作者:沃夫梅尔·影披

[图片So的S]那么,你想要当扒手。你想要过上犯罪的生活,永远快人一步并且钱袋满满。或许这会吸引你去抢劫那些有钱的商人,或者敲诈本地的小老板们来过活吧?我给你一点建议——别合计了。就我以前遇到过的那些身手不凡的贼小子们,我已经见过二十多个自以为得到了自己想要的,结果却混了个牢底坐穿的了。

不过如果你跟我是一类人,你肯定不会听取这种建议。你是为所欲为而且绝对不会听别人说不同意见的。只要钱给够,就算冒险去湮灭地狱都成。听着很耳熟么?如果是的话,这本书就是教给你小毛贼和犯罪大师做事的区别的。

我知道你在想什么。沃夫梅尔是哪位?他以为他是谁,还教我怎么做更专业的贼?他是怎么成为专家的?简单。或许你听说过哀伤要塞的窃案,巴兰兹雅女王的加冕王冠丢了的那次。或许你还听过白金塔里上古卷轴不翼而飞的故事。没错,你听到的都是事实。我基本上做过你能想到的所有工作,而且我有藏好了的赛普丁币为证。况且一个前盗贼是怎么利用资源出版他自己的著作的呢?

现在给我用心了,我们从最基础的技能中的两个开始,如果你想要做扒手,这都是需要你机灵点的——开锁和扒窃。在你用鄙视地眼睛一撇扔掉书以前,我可以向你保证,让你自己被抓的最简单方法就是忽视基础——不过如果你能熟练掌握这些技能,你就可以在金币里游泳。

扒窃是最简单易学的技能之一,不过我见过新手小贼搞砸这事的次数也能吓你一跳。课程分两步走。第一,了解你的周围环境,第二,找到接近的办法。你决定在哪里和什么时候下手钓大鱼,和你选择谁下手同样重要。跟着目标一会,你没必要着急。一直等到目标位置相对孤立,并且不会被守卫听到为止——不过最重要的永远都是知道什么时候放弃目标。轻易被抓起来的风险是犯不上的。永远都有数不完的口袋满满的其他目标。至于接近目标,在完全离开目标视野之前都不要潜行——直接从后方更好地接近目标。同时也不要在决定偷什么上浪费太长时间。一个优秀的盗贼应该能在五秒以内从目标身上搞到有价值的东西。最后一点是,晚上干活可以有效减少被抓的机会。如果你别无选择只能在白天下手,那就确保你不要暴露在开阔地。

撬锁则是一门日积月累精益求精的艺术。最重要的要点是没有两把一模一样的锁,每一个的处理方式都会完全不同。只要你脑子机灵点,有点耐心,你会发现比你预想的要容易搞定得多。好的撬锁器永远都是必需的。确保你的撬锁器够多。切记从容不迫,操作撬锁器的力道要轻。锁栓开始滑动的时候,你应该能感受到撬锁器些微的颤动——这意味着你接近“甜点”了。在这个位置放慢速度,在触感最佳时拨弄撬锁器。你要是像个老人家似的对着锁头瞎戳,你最后得到的就只有一大把坏掉的撬锁器和你那受伤的自尊心罢了。最后一点,如果你实在是拿那把锁没辙,一般总会有别的方法把它豁开。只是留神注意,这样做一般很少成功,而且可能会弄出大动静。

通过使用我的技巧,我不只是教导你做一名成功的盗贼,我也在给你一份可靠的保证。所花费的不过只是一点点的耐心和大量的练习,并且或许,只是或许,你将和沃尔梅尔一样成功。

在我的下一卷中,我们继续研讨你的十八般武艺中的另一种——潜行。我会向你证明,只要你懂得如何让阴影为你所用,它会和你的利刃一样是你可靠的武器。

Wulfmare's Guide to Better Thieving
by Wulfmare Shadow-Cloak
A boastful thief discusses the tricks of the trade


So, you want to make it as a cutpurse. You want to live the life of a criminal, always one step ahead of everyone and pockets brimming with septims. Maybe it appeals to you to try and earn a living by robbing some wealthy merchants or extorting your local shopkeepers? Let me give you a bit of advise - don't bother. For every skilled thief I've met in my day, I've seen a twenty who thought that they had what it took but ended up rotting in jail.
But if you're anything like me, you don't listen to advice. You do whatever you want and never let anyone else tell you otherwise. To Oblivion with the risks - all that matters is the coin. Sound familiar? If it does, then this book might just teach you the difference between acting like a petty thief and a master criminal.
I know what you're thinking. Who's this Wulfmare? Who does he think he is telling me how to be a better thief? What makes him an expert? Simple. Maybe you heard about that heist in Mournhold, when Queen Barenziah's coronation crown went missing? Or perhaps the tale of an Elder Scroll gone missing from the White-Gold Tower reached your ears. That's right... it was yours truly. I've done just about every kind of job you can imagine and I've got the septims put away to prove it. How else could an ex-thief find the resources to publish his own book?
Now that I have your attention, let's start with two of the most fundamental skills you'll need to sharpen if you want to make it as a cutpurse - picking locks and picking pockets. And before you roll your eyes and throw this book aside in disgust, I can promise you that the easiest way you're going to get caught is by ignoring the basics - but if you can master these activities you'll find yourself swimming in coin.
Picking pockets is one of the easiest skills to learn, but you'd be surprised how often I've seen novice thieves muck it up. The lesson here is two-fold. First, know your surroundings and second, know your approach. Where and when you decide to go fishing is just as important as who you chose as your mark. Follow them a while, there's never a need to rush. Wait until they're somewhere isolated and out of earshot of any guards - but most importantly always know when to let the mark go. Getting pinched simply isn't worth the risk. There'll always be plenty of other marks who'll come along with their pockets full. As far as the approach goes, don't drop into your crouch until you are completely out of the mark's view - directly behind and preferably close to them. Don't spend too long deciding what you'll lift either. A good thief should be able to hit a mark and make off with something valuable in less than five seconds. Last of all, plying this trade at night will greatly reduce your chances of getting caught. If you have no other choice and you have to do it in the daylight, just make sure you aren't out in the open.
Lockpicking is an art form that takes years to master. The important thing to remember is that no two are alike, each one behaving completely differently. As long as you keep your wits about you, and your patience, you'll find them easier to defeat than you'd initially expect. Good picks are always essential. Make sure you have plenty of them tucked away in your pockets. Always take your time and keep a light touch on the picks. When the tumblers begin to fall into place, you should feel the pick tremble ever-so-slightly - this means you're near the sweet spot. Slow down at that point and only move the picks with the finest touch. If you blindly poke at the lock like an old man, all you're going to end up with is a bunch of broken picks and equally broken pride. As a last resort, if the lock is completely confounding you, there's always the option of smashing it. Just keep in mind that this is rarely successful and could potentially make a great deal of noise.
By using my techniques, I'm not merely suggesting you'll be a successful thief, I'm giving you a solid guarantee. All it takes is a little bit of patience and a great deal of practice then maybe, just maybe, you'll become as successful as Wulfmare.
In my next volume, we'll move onto another important tool in your arsenal - sneaking. I'll prove to you that the shadows can be just as potent of a weapon as your blade if you know how to bend it to your will.
