Talk with Kevin on floor +1 like this:

Chatlog
You: Hi
Kevin: Greetings player, what brings you here?
You: Mission
Kevin: You are not a member of our guild yet! We have high standards for our members. To rise in our guild is a difficult but rewarding task. Are you interested in joining?
You: Yes
Kevin: Hm, I might consider your proposal, but first you will have to prove your worth by doing some tasks for us. Are you willing to do that?
You: Yes
Kevin: Excellent! Your first task will be quite simple. But you should better write my instructions down anyways. You can read and write?
You: Yes
Kevin: So listen, you will check certain tours our members have to take to see if there is some trouble. First travel with Captain Bluebear's ship from Thais to Carlin, understood?
You: Yes
Kevin: Excellent! Once you have done that you will travel with Uzon to Edron. You will find him in the Femor Hills. Understood?
You: Yes
Kevin: Fine, fine! Next, travel with Captain Seahorse to the city of Venore. Understood?
You: Yes
Kevin: Good! Finally, find the technomancer Brodrosch and travel with him to the Isle of Cormaya. After this passage report back to me here. Understood?
You: Yes
Kevin: Ok, remember: the Tibian mail service puts trust in you! Don't fail and report back soon. Just tell me about your MISSION.
You: Bye
Kevin: Good bye.

You: Yes
Kevin: I am glad to hear that. One of our mailboxes was reported to be jammed. It is located on the so called 'mountain' on theisle Folda. Get a crowbar and fix the mailbox. Report about your mission when you have done so.

Now get to Hugo and talk with him like this:

Chatlog
You: Hi
Hugo: Be greeted, player!
You: New dress pattern
