When I come to new towns/cities, I always find houses that have locked doors. My exploratory instincts tell me to pick the lock, go inside, and scope the place out. However, what if I don't need items or gold and I am not on any Thieves' Guild quest to rob a house? Is there the possibility to uncover new quest lines, or is there's just not much advantage to breaking into peoples' houses?

    We're largely a self-moderated site, so there's nothing here that needs full-moderator-powers attention. This is currently sitting at 4 of 5 community votes needed to be un-held. One more and it will bump to the top of the site and be available for answering. No need to double-post (which will get removed anyway), since it is working as designed. The community approves of your changes and it's on the cusp of being put back in action! Nov 3 '13 at 16:54

Yes, there is one quest that you can get from breaking into a house in windhelm in which you can speak with Aventus Aretino whom will start the dark brotherhood quest line for you. Here is a photo and description of the house. Enjoy!

    Most likely you will get the miscellaneous pointer quest from people around town before you have the chance to stumble upon that quest.

  • @kotekzot True. You'll hear of this quest long before you get to Windhelm. This answer is essentially useless. Apr 20 '14 at 6:13
