d100 Thieves Guild Missions

Sequel to my wizard school post. Guilds often give members missions but may also hire outsiders for some matters like not being seen to have members involved. Missions about more than stealing to somebody. I'm thinking of putting guilds, schools, temples companies in my setting with various benefits for members and 10% tithe.

Possible Benefits:Free training for level ups included
Access to libraries, craftsmen, magic item sales, specialist hirelings, expert advice
Pay your ransoms but you must serve them for 7 years if you cannot pay back
Loans with periods of service for those who cannot pay
Legal and medical aid

  1. I was looking for something like this for some thief characters in my Tegel campaign. I think it would be a good idea to give them a mission to go along with the leveling up cost.

    1. there is also a lowlife carousing table for criminal characters also somewhere.

      Glad you enjoy it and always like hearing weird things people do with my tables in game
