History of the Fighters Guild
Though it was officially established by Tsaesci Potentate Versidue Shaie in 2E 320, it was his kinsman Dinieras ves who suggested an order of mercantile soldiers-for-hire. The order was initially called "The Syffim," after the Tsaesci word for "soldiers," but the name was changed by the Potentate to the more common name known by the people: the Fighters' Guild.
The Fighters Guild was formed sometime after the Potentate conquered Tamriel in one of the bloodiest conflicts in history. The only army left standing was that of the Potentate, but the economy was also knocked off its feet. Local cities had no militia or force to protect them, especially outside of Cyrodiil where the Potentate's forces were concentrated. The Fighters' Guild was formed to combat rising crime rates across the lands. It was originally intended to be a guild for Akaviri races only, but since there were not enough of them to keep order, it was opened to non-Akaviri members as well.
Anyone interested in combat that is focused on an honest living can join the Guild. Unfortunately, the guild has recently started having trouble with a new group of mercenaries known as the Blackwood Company who have been stealing contracts and fighters from them. This is outlined in the Black Horse Courier newsletter A New Guild for Fighters?
All of the cities except for the Imperial City and Kvatch have a guildhall of the Fighters Guild inside its walls. The most important guildhalls are located in Anvil, Chorrol, and Cheydinhal, as this is where Fighters Guild quests are obtained, but each guild has members who offer various services, including skill training.
- Anvil Fighters Guild
- Bravil Fighters Guild
- Bruma Fighters Guild
- Cheydinhal Fighters Guild
- Chorrol Fighters Guild
- Leyawiin Fighters Guild
- Skingrad Fighters Guild
Ranks and guild perks
At Master rank, access to the Guildmaster's Chest in Chorrol is received, which offers a monthly revenue and items from the Fighters Guild. Orders can be given to Modryn Oreyn in Chorrol to focus on either recruitment of new members, completion of contracts, or both equally. Focusing on recruitment reins in more items in the chest, while doing contracts brings in more gold.
Each rank is earned after completion of one, or multiple, quests:
- Associate is earned after joining the guild.
- Apprentice is earned after completion of the first quest.
- Journeyman is earned after completion of "A Rat Problem," "The Desolate Mine," and "The Unfortunate Shopkeeper"
- Warder is earned after completion of "Azani Blackheart"
- Champion is earned after completion of "The Stone of St. Alessia," "The Noble's Daughter," and "Mystery at Harlun's Watch"
- Master is earned after completion of "Information Gathering," "Infiltration," and "The Hist"
The Fighters Guild quests do not follow a linear order. For example, after completing "Trolls of Forsaken Mine" from Oreyn, "The Noble's Daughter" and "The Stone of St. Alessia" can be completed in any order, with subsequent quests ("Mystery at Harlun's Watch" after "The Noble's Daughter") afterward.

Suspension and expulsion from the Guild
If another guild member is killed or stolen from, the violator is temporarily suspended from the guild until the actions are amended. The first offense involves retrieving 20 Bear Pelts for Vilena Donton in Chorrol. The second requires 20 Minotaur Horns be obtained. If the rank of Grand Champion in the Arena has been obtained, then bears or minotaurs can easily be fought, as opposed to searching Cyrodiil for them. Bear Pelts can be purchased from most General item traders.
After three offenses, the member is forever expelled, with no chance of reprieve.
