WalkthroughEdit

Beginning the questEdit

The Queen of Thieves quest map
Tomas Lawry chathead

Speak to Tomas Lawry outside the Piscarilius House bank. He is conducting an investigation on behalf of the Kourend Council to investigate unusual happenings in the Piscarilius House. A new gang called the Saviours of Kourend has recently formed, absorbing many of the other gangs, and have become the largest gang in Kourend, with more joining them each day. According to him, their leader is The Queen of Thieves. Tomas attempted to infiltrate the gang with little success, so he requires someone that looks poor to infiltrate them. Agree to help him.

DiscoveryEdit

Robert O'Reilly chathead

Directly west, speak to either the poor looking woman or man and ask about the Saviours of Kourend's location. They don't know where they can be found, but they do know a man who has been working with them: Robert O'Reilly. He can be found in the building directly south, in the room to the right of Kenelme. In order to reveal the location of the Saviours of Kourend, he will ask for a stew. Items to make the stew can be purchased from Kenelme in the house directly to the west, and a bowl can be purchased from the general store. Give it to him, and he will tell you they are located in The Warrens, whose entrance is found in the manhole east from here, marked by the Dungeon icon icon.

InfiltrationEdit

Devan Rutter chathead

Enter the manhole to the east, and make your way west to Devan Rutter. You will ask to join the gang, but he will want you to kill Conrad King, a senior member of a rival gang, the Vipers, to prove your loyalty. Conrad King is on the dock on the southern side of the Piscarilius mess hall (the largest building, to the east). You have the option to kill him 'brutally' or 'softly.' Choosing 'softly' results in a humorous dialogue stating that this is impossible, causing you to kill him 'brutally' anyway.

The truthEdit

Lady Shauna Piscarilius chathead

Return to Devan Rutter; then, enter the tent north of him and speak to the Queen of Thieves. You will attempt to arrest her, but she tells you the truth about the gang: Before they came along, Kourend was filled with violent gangs who steal and kill, but the Saviours of Kourend pick particular targets, removing people of power and giving it back to those who keep the kingdom alive. She will reveal that she is none other than the leader of the Piscarilius House, Lady Shauna Piscarilius, and that The Queen of Thieves is her alias that strikes fear into the rich and degenerate.

The Queen of Thieves - searching chest

Searching the chest in Councillor Sophia Hughes' home.

You will doubt her claims, so she tells you about the current leadership situation, and the corruption of the Kourend Council.

Councillor Hughes' house location

The location of Councillor Hughes' house.

To prove she is telling the truth, she will ask you to search Councillor Hughes' home, as they believe she has ties with the Disciples of Yama.

Travel to Hosidius House. You'll find Councillor Hughes' home is found directly east of the Hosidius House General Store, Little Shop of Horace. She is not home, so simply picklock and search the chest to find a letter, which proves Shauna's claims.

Finishing upEdit

Return to Tomas Lawry and give him the letter. Reading the contents of the letter, he will forget about the Queen of Thieves, believing Councillor Hughes' ties with the Disciples of Yama is more pressing, and plans to report it to the Council immediately.

Return to Lady Shauna Piscarilius. She will tell you that Councillor Hughes has been arrested, and admits that you're not totally useless after all. She continues, saying that her arrest is only the beginning, and there's still much work to be done. Lastly, she will tell you that she may call on your help once more, or maybe not. She will then give you your rewards.

Congratulations, quest complete!
