Beggars are located throughout Cyrodiil. They act as the eyes for the Thieves Guild and sometimes have valuable information about quests; though they are often dishonest if the Hero does not pay them respect with a few septims. They can tell how to join the Thieves guild if one raise their disposition to 70. While talking to beggars, one will have the option to give them a Septim. This raises their disposition by one point.
Beggars' bedrolls and foodbags can often be found around the edges of the major cities of Cyrodiil, usually near city walls or behind buildings. Sometimes they are filled with gold, and if not part of the Thieves Guild, one can steal it. It is a crime, so make sure no guards are around.
They are often considered convenient prey for Heros infected with vampirism.
If a member of the Thieves Guild, it is not permitted to kill or steal from any of the beggars as they are all under the protection of the Gray Fox. Feeding on NPCs is also considered a crime so vampires who are Thieves Guild members should avoid feeding on beggars.
List of BeggarsEdit
- In the quest "A Brotherhood Betrayed" a reference is made to two more beggars who supposedly lived in Bruma before being killed, along with another that can be found dead in Bradon Lirrian's basement.
- Beggars often have two voice types. This can be heard by talking to one and then giving them a .
- Often they will say their children are starving, even though there are no children.
- Beggars are the only NPCs that can give the Hero a disease unless the DLC Mehrunes Razor is installed. At that point laborers found inside can give the Hero Tunnel Cough.
- Beggars will occasionally mention a god by the name of Mystara when thanking the player, though no deity by that name is known to exist in Elder Scrolls lore. This might be a reference to the Mystara campaign setting in the role-playing board game Dungeons & Dragons.
