The Rogues' Den (location)
1) Entrance/exit
2) Entrance to maze (Rogues' Den minigame)
3) Brian O'Richard
4) Martin Thwait
5) Emerald Benedict (the banker)
6) Wall safes
7) Perpetual fire

The Rogues' Den (also improperly referred to as the Thieving Guild) is located in Burthorpe, underneath the Toad and Chicken Inn. There is a trapdoor behind the bar that gives access to the den. A player doesn't need to have level 50 Thieving to enter the Rogues' Den, but does in order to use the Maze or purchase items from Martin Thwait.




The Toad and Chicken Inn, with the entrance to the Rogues' Den, is near the center of Burthorpe.



  • The highlight of the den is the Rogues' Den minigame. This game can reward players with Agility and Thieving experience, as well as Rogue kits and items of Rogue equipment.
  • Four wall safes are in the centre of the den. Players can try to crack the safes. Success means they receive 70 thieving experience and also randomly get an uncut gem (sapphire to diamond) or gold Coins (10, 20, or 40 coins). Failure means they trigger a trap and take a small amount of damage. Stethoscopes, which Martin Thwait sells, help with cracking the safes. Good thieves can earn up to 500k per hour using these.
  • A perpetual Fire is located near Emerald Benedict. This makes the den a favored spot for some players who train Cooking, as it allows rapid cooking and banking of the food. Note that only some food can be cooked using a fire, meaning that items requiring a Range must be cooked elsewhere.


The perpetual fire in use
  • RuneScape does not have a Thieving Guild, however, the Rogues' Den is almost like a guild, seeing as it has a level 50+ thieving and 50+ Agility requirement to enter the maze and purchase items from Martin Thwait, the master of Thieving, and has the special Rogues' Den minigame.
  • Brian O'Richard is a play on the actor's name Richard O'Brien who used to host a popular UK TV program The Crystal Maze. He often played a harmonica while contestants were doing the puzzles. Brian O'Richard alludes to this by asking you to search for his harmonica when you first speak to him. No such item is known to exist.
  • Worlds 71 and 77 seem to be the most popular worlds for training Thieving (maze running and safe cracking), Cooking and Firemaking in the Rogues' Den.
  • The den is sometimes very popular for training Firemaking; fires can be lit almost anywhere in the den's cavern, so this allows fast withdrawal of logs. (Fires cannot be lit in the buildings of most banks, other than the Grand Exchange and Fist of Guthix lobby)
