Make reparations for breaking the Thieves Guild rules.
Quest Giver: Automatic on breaking Guild rules
Location(s): The Ragged Flagon
Reward: Restored membership of the Thieves Guild
Vex isn't pleased with your behavior, but she'll forgive you... for a price

Quick Walkthrough[edit]

  1. After offending the Thieves Guild, wait for them to calm down.
  2. Talk to Vex and pay 1,000 gold.
  3. Pay your way back into the guild.

Detailed Walkthrough[edit]

You get this quest for offending the Thieves Guild, usually by assaulting/murdering one of their members, attempting to steal from them and getting caught, or murdering someone during a guild quest. This will result in an expulsion, meaning no more training sessions or fencing services, and limited conversations with guild members. To rejoin the guild, speak to Vex in The Ragged Flagon, who will reprimand you and demand 1,000 gold as reparations. Return when you have the money and you will be let back into the guild.

If you've been expelled for assault, you may need to wait 48 hours outside the Ragged Flagon for hostile guild members to calm down.


  • This quest may incorrectly trigger as a result of doing Dark Brotherhood quests.
    Mod Notes: Could also have something to do with having previously triggered Reparations (see discussion), but DB seems more likely.
