The Guild of Thieves, Burglars and Allied Trades is a covert guild based in Ankh-Morpork, although it has branches in Bes Pelargic, Djelibeybi, Genua and Pekan Ford. It is split into five specialisations, each focusing on certain areas of their profession and each equipped with their own set of primaries.

Structure

The guild is split into five specialisations: Cutpurse, mugger, prowler, safecracker and smuggler. Each specialisation has a monitor to watch over them and a monitor can issue a sanction on any playerresearch. Above the monitors, there is the Guild Master, who can be voted in during an election. A new Guild Master can also be appointed by the previous one if he or she wishes to. The Guild Master also appoints an Assistant Guild Master. The Guild Master be removed by means of a Vote of no Confidence.

Specialisations

The five specialisations are unique compared to other guild's specialisation, in that they are still considered all part of the same organisation and are governed by the same figure-head. When you join the Thieves' Guild, you are originally a Prowler, and can specialise any time before Guild Level 50.

Mugger

Muggers are the more violent specialisation, preferring to bash their victims over the head than sneak up from behind, a good choice for newbies and those interested in fighting and stealing.

Cutpurse

The Curpurses are the largest specialisation, due in part to having both dagger and stealing as primaries. Also a good choice for newbies and those interested in both fighting and stealing.

Prowler

Prowlers are focused on general covert skills and are the specialisation with primaries most similar to those the guild had prior to being split. All thieves are prowlers upon joining the guild.

Safecracker

Safecrackers are the breaking and entering specialists of the guild. This specialisation has a slight drawback as they lack a stealing primary and crack isn't in the game yet, but creators assure us they are working on it[1].

Smuggler

Smugglers specify in the locating and shifting of all those hot items. They make up for their lack of stealing primary with the full range of valuing skills.

Commands

Thief-only commands.

* These commands are also shared with assassins too.
