    I'm so sorry.

    Ugh. Been years since my last heist. Running low on cash. Feeling a bit rusty too. If I don't get back in the business now, before I've lost all of my skill, I might as well turn myself in and spend the rest of my days rotting in some jail cell. At least I've got a roof over my head guaranteed that way.

    [​IMG]

    Robbing this bookstore seems like a perfect way to get back in the saddle. Low profile and I get a decent amount of gold, as well as some nice practice.

    First I gotta visit an old friend, though...

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Good to see that old Basso's still in the business.

    After grabbing some water and rope arrows, as well as the good old Blackjack, I'm ready to hit that store.

    [​IMG]

    God damn it, I'm too old for this shit.

    [​IMG]

    Might as well just pay the gold.

    [​IMG]

    As soon as I leave the prison, I'm greeted by this monstrosity. Just my luck, huh? She slips me a note and quickly leaves. I wonder...

    [​IMG]

    Gray Fox? Huh, thought that was just an urban legend. Then again, many thought the same of me. Seems like a guy I could work with.

    [​IMG]

    This must be the place.

    [​IMG]

    Thieves Guild? Gold star to whoever thought it was a brilliant idea to hire thieves who've been caught in the act.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    :smug:

    You sounding like my grandmother is a bit of a turnoff, though.

    Guess it's time to talk to this Cristophe guy.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]Everyone is here. Let's begin. Each of you is seeking membership in the Thieves Guild.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]It's unusual for us to have three potential recruits at the same time. Rather than the normal test of skill, I'm going to make this a contest.

    [​IMG]That's not fair!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]Whoever brings me the diary of Amantius Allectus, without killing him, will be invited into the guild.

    [​IMG]

    Don't be so sure, lady. :smug:

    [​IMG]It's somewhere in the Imperial City. The beggars will help you locate it, for a price. I can sell you lockpicks if you need them. One more thing. You can not kill each other during the trial. We may be thieves, but we're not murderers.

    Alright, let's do this. :yeah:

    How convenient for a beggar to be sleeping right next to us. After giving him some coins, he promptly spills the beans.

    [​IMG]

    After a bit of running, I make it to Allectus' house. Methredhel's already here. This is gonna be real close. Not to worry, though.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Bitches don't know about running while sneaking.

    Now it's just a question of running back across town.

    [​IMG]

    :yeah:

    [​IMG]You now owe your royalty to our guildmaster, the Gray Fox. He has three rules you must follow. First, never steal from another member of the guild. Second, never kill anyone on the job. This is not the Dark Brotherhood. Animals and monsters can be slain if necessary. Third, don't steal from the poor. The peasants and beggars are under the personal protection of the Gray Fox, particularly here on the Waterfront.

    Sounds reasonable. Seems like I'm gonna like this Gray Fox guy. Not quite fond of having to start at the bottom of the food chain, but I guess that's my punishment for retiring for such a long time.[/b]

    SWEET MOTHER, which sequel of Thief is this? It looks like some late 2000s massive :decline: infested action RPG like Oblivion or something.

    Part 2: Housebreaking

    I've changed the title to something a bit more appropriate. A bit. Anyway, here's part two of our epic saga.

    ===

    Alright, time to get to work.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]When you've contributed enough to the guild coffers by selling stolen items to Ognar, I might have something for you. Come back then.

    Alright, no time to waste. Let's hit a house in the Temple District.

    [​IMG]

    There, a nice isolated street.

    [​IMG]

    Let's do this. :yeah:

    [​IMG]

    OH SHI- Wait, it's not doing anything. Still, can't risk getting caught.

    [​IMG]

    Sorry, Charlotte. You were never meant to get mixed up in this terrible mess. :(

    [​IMG]

    Ah yes, must be something valuable in here.

    [​IMG]

    :x

    As soon as I head upstairs, I'm greeted by this. Nothing a whack to the head can't solve.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    There's another chest at the foot of the bed.
    [​IMG]

    :x

    No worries, here's another chest.
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    :x

    [​IMG]
    This is what you get for wasting my time, faggots.

    Time to rob that guy I stole the diary from.

    [​IMG]
    A locked door in his living room? Too difficult for me to pick, but there might be a key on the dude. Let's go and check!

    [​IMG]
    Do women not sleep in this town?! :x

    You know what, I don't even care.
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Hmm, another chest.
    [​IMG]

    :incline: but still :x
    And the owner obviously doesn't have the key to a door in his own home. Bah, checking the basement and them I'm out of here.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    What's this? Some sort of shrine, possibly? Huh, maybe there's a reason we had to steal this guy's diary.
    [​IMG]
    Maybe we shall find an answer beyond this hatch.

    [​IMG]

    I guess not.

    Well, this has been a spectacular waste of time. Let's head out.
    [​IMG]

    Just in time too.

    Whatever, let's just head to Bruma. Bruma lies far to the North, so it shall be a long and perilous journey. I best prepare carefully.
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    The blandness is killing me.

    Time to pay Ongar a visit. He lives in one of the shacks behind the chapel.
    [​IMG]
    I'm almost tempted to rob the guy blind, but I remember the Thieves Guild rules. Anyway, I'm supposed to sell 50 gold worth of stolen stuff, so let's wake the bum up.

    [Perception]
    [​IMG]
    [/Perception]

    [​IMG]
    FUCKING :x

    Time to hit one of the local stores.
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    Note to self: only rob stores.

    After grabbing a few weapons, I head to the inn to sell them to Ognar, the good for nothing drunk, but not before overhearing this conversation.
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    :salute:

    After selling the last of the stolen goods, it's back to the Imperial City to meet Cristophe.

    Finding him in his home, I inquire about my first real Thieves Guild assignment.
    [​IMG]

    I don't see how meeting in a public place, with a well lit torch in hand is more discrete than in one's home, but will do. :salute:

    Are you at least going to play some mod quests or something? Apparently there were a couple of good thief-based ones, fucked if I'm trying them myself though.

    Part 3: A pun about taxes

    None of the Thieves Guild, though, as far as I know. Plus, a bunch of the LPs have broken images nowadays.

    The Thieves Arsenal mod adds randomly generated ones where you have to get something out of a dungeon without killing anything (should I show these quests?), but, other than that, I've had no luck in finding thief mods. There are a bunch of assassin ones, but that isn't what this LP is about.

    Thieves Arsenal mod.

    With that out of the way, on to Part 3 of our LP of GTA: Derpy Shadows. This is gonna be a short one, but I want each part to be a single quest to keep the LP somewhat organized. You can probably expect part 4 (and maybe even 5) today.

    ===

    [​IMG]
    Oh yeah, that's A LOT less discrete than meeting in your home.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]Hieronymus Lex actually collected taxes from everyone living here on the Waterfront! Your job is to recover those taxes. Are you up for it?

    Hieronymus who?

    [​IMG]He is a fool of a Captain in the Imperial Watch. He's a real law and order type. He has a grudge against the Thieves Guild and the Gray Fox in particular. Lex has made it his personal mission to capture him.

    Captain of the Watch, a law and order type? Grudge against the Thieves Guild? Wait a minute...
    [Intelligence]So he's a law and order type?

    [​IMG]Wow, you're smarter than you look.

    :smug:

    [​IMG]The Gray Fox has led our guild for over 300 years now. He has always guaranteed protection to the poor of the Waterfront.

    Not too fond of the altruism, but fine, I'll do it. Sounds like a nice little challenge.

    [​IMG]

    Let's consult our conveniently placed hobo.
    [​IMG]

    The South Watch Tower is, again, in the Temple District.
    [​IMG]

    Imagine my surprise when I'm greeted to a room full of Imperial Guards.
    [​IMG]
    Turns out that these guys sleep during the day. When I come back midday, getting up the tower is a cakewalk.

    [​IMG]
    Now I just gotta unlock this ladder and...
    [​IMG]
    ... here we are.

    [​IMG]
    And here are the tax records. Wow, all this commotion for such a measly sum.

    Now we just gotta return to Armand.
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    50 gold? For me? Oh, joy.
    [​IMG]
    :yeah:
