The Thieves Guild is an organization for the gathering and training of those stealthy and shadowy in nature. Although criminal by its very definition, the local authorities often tolerate the existence of the guild as its presence often greatly decreases, if not eliminates, that of the more unstable or dangerous criminals.
Like any trade guild, the Thieves Guild is an organization of professionals, except that in this case the professionals are thieves, robbers, pickpockets, smugglers, and other enterprising operators. They don’t have public guild halls, but in large towns they do tend to gather at a single location, such as a cornerclub, inn, or tradehouse.
In Skyrim, the Thieves Guild is based in the city of Riften. The Thieves Guild is headquartered in the Ragged Flagon, which can be reached through the Ratway, a network of tunnels that run under the city.
