The Railroad is the Thieves Guild!

    I just started the Railroad questline the other day and I was amazed at how much it looks like the Thieves Guild from Skyrim, hell, it is the Thieves Guild from Skyrim.


    - They are a shadowy organization living in an underground hideout beneath a church (TG - Temple of Mara)

    - They are a shadow of their former self after the Switchboard (TG - Ran out of Luck after Twilight Sepulcher)

    - You help them rise back up (TG - Restore Glory quests)

    - They have markings throught the world showing directions, caches, etc. (TG - Shadow markings)

    - The armor is almost the same.


    The only difference I found is that the Thieves Guild doesn't help wanabe Terminators.

    100% spot on! Excellent connections between the two, I kind of wish that there were more "reconnaissance" missions in the RR. I always liked sneaking past enemies to rob them of something vs just killing everything, and the RR kind of forces you to be a Heavy vs a sneaky in and out person

    They have some resemblances, yes. Although the shadow marks are far more cryptic than the Railroad signs. :D
