Criminally oversized Skyrim mod expands the Thieves Guild, lets you romance a thief


Normally you slog through Skyrim’s underwhelming Thieves Guild questline, inevitably replace the guildmaster, and feel a hit of ennui strong enough to make you question the hundreds of hours you spent playing Bethesda’s RPG. Or maybe that’s just me.

You do score a suit of armor, a magic amulet, and the key to a tribute chest that occasionally fills up with loot, but your life as a crime lord just sort of tapers off. Even your second-in-command Brynjolf, who recruited you back in the Riften Marketplace at the start of the questline, apologizes and says, “I’ve got important things to do,” when you try to interact with him from then on. The rude wanker.
