The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion Tips

Free Lock-picks (Short and very easy!!)
To get the lock-picks. Fast travel to the waterfront in imperial city (Must be morning time). Then take 2-3 steps back. Turn right and keep on going till you go to the place filled with wooden shacks. Then find the 'House For Sale' or your own house if you bought it. Next to it should be Chritophe's house. Go inside (normally unlocked), pickpocket him and take all the lock-picks you desire. You also could take other stuff from him if you'd like, he doesn't mind. He'll only say 'Pfft, take it. Its worthless to me anyway'
