::: Detailed Description :::
Thievery is probably the most important power to get. But, unfortunately, it can also be the hardest to get the first level of. As a vampire without Thievery, you can only get your funding two ways… Either from Humans, or from other pires being nice enough to pay for it for you.
Of course, you can always just donate enough to get you a level or three of Thievery, but that isn’t what this text is for. Actually, I recommend you do donate to the game, just because of the principle. Besides, getting level 1 Thievery by paying to get rid of those banners and supporting the game is in no way a bad thing. I encourage the idea wholeheartedly.
The reason Thievery is so important? Well, it pays for everything else like transits, pubs, items, powers… Come on, do I really need to tell you why?
A note: You don’t "rob" humans. They fork over their cash as soon as you drink them up and kill them. Only other vampires can be robbed from. And no, you can’t rob the bartenders. Or the banks… Or shops. Shit.
Like the quick and dirty says, the different levels of Thievery work like so:<ul>
Am I getting through to you on the UP TO bit? So you won’t be emailing me or posting to a message board with some complaint about T3 not working, right? Good. See, Thievery won’t always rob a pire of exactly that amount. Also, you can fail. With each level of Thievery you gain, you increase your chances of a successful robbery, but it is never 100% going to work every time. Besides, some vampires don’t have any money on them, the cheap bastards who know how to use banks. Ahem. Pardon me. Moving on…
Once you have the funds, actually getting the power is simple. Go to the guild and pay for it. The end…
