In Avestrue Runkel Bagthumper asks the heroes to help him, as he has to pass an Examination to be allowed to enter the Ferdok Guild of Thieves.

1 Examination

Chest at Aves' Shrine

The first assignment[]

The first assignment is, to find a chest at Aves' Shrine in Avestrue and to open it. If you follow the road upto Aves' Shrine, you can find the chest to the right of the building. To open the chest you need the Pick Locks Talent. Inside the chest is an encrypted note, which can be decrypted by Runkel.

The second assignment[]

2 Examination

Binga Meadowbolt and the chicken coop

The second assignment consists of finding the key to the Guild of Thieves in the chicken coop in the Meadowbolts yard. The chicken coop is located in the backyard of the Meadowbolts ground, which is opposite the tavern. But the backyard is guarded by Wolfie the Guard Dog, so you will have to calm him down first. For that purpose you need the Dog bone that Binga Meadowbolt has on her. You can Pick Pocket it from her, or obtain it through conversation. Once you have given the bone to Wolfie, you can enter the backyard and search the chicken coop. Inside you will find the required key and another encrypted note. Once again, Runkel is able to decrypt this message.

The third assignment[]

The third assignment takes the party into the cellar of the old mill. After fighting a few rats you will arrive at a locked chest which is secured by a trap. If you don't disarm the trap, the unfortunate hero will suffer from Firemoss poisoning. The chest can be opened with the key that you obtained in the second assignment. Inside the chest is yet another note, but this time the message is easy to read. It is written from right to left, and it reads: "Cano Wagoner's Home".


Entry ThievesGuild

Entry to the Thieves Guild

In Wagoner's Home, opposite the Serene Sow and next to the stand of Holwick the Huckster, is a little wooden shed. Through it the party can enter the Cellar Vault, where you will meet the thief Debero. Once you have told him the password, the party is allowed to enter the thieves guild.
