Taking Care of Business

Join the Thieves Guild  

In order to kick off the Thieves Guild questline, you’ll have to do a small quest for Brynjolf in Riften, on the square. He’ll be there at his stall between 8am and 8pm. Once you’ve done that he’ll want to meet you at the Ragged Flagon under Riften in the Ratway, which is the start of the Taking Care of Business quest, which is your way into the Thieves Guild.

@ 5 & 6 ive expirenced the the same horse shit, I had to attack the dude so he'd follow me into the ratway then hide so he wouldnt attack me anymore, then i could finally talk to him, I was able to do another mission for him, but now im on a mission when i need him to show me the leader of the guild, ive found the leader but the guy wont follow me to the leader he just stays in the bar and if i attack him i gotta pay vex 1000 gold everytime, sadly it looks like im gonna have to create a new character just for the thieves guild. :'(

I had to make a new save to get this achievement. I did the main quest where you find esbern in the ratway. And then tried the thieves guild and he never followed me. I emailed Bethesda multiple times and nothing back on this.

Once I started a new game I took the horse and cart to riften and did the quests, he said meet yum in the ratway. I went right there, and he was there talking to the barkeep and vex and everything is smooth from there.

@ #13 You need to speak to Brynjolf. I believe he'll be at the Bee and Barb in Riften and ask you to meet him in the market during the day to steal something and reverse-pickpocket an item onto someone.
