Stealing (Rules)

From Barbarians of Gor

Season 4: Lockpicking and Breaking down doors now functions as part of the RPR Dice system. While stealing does happen in the fiction of Gor, and while we are interested in game items and materials having value, we are opting not to implement mechanical stealing on this server. This will include taking items out of open containers but NOT from stealing items off players as part of PvP. Role-play (only) stealing is acceptable and we have tools such as Ravencrest mod to support it.

What do I need to know for RP Stealing
  • If you wish to role-play steal, please leave a Ravencrest note or Highmane's note AT the location. Consider the surroundings and the number of thralls in play and address them in your role-play note.
Can I RP burn something down or damage it?
  • Yes, same rules as stealing apply - consider the surroundings and the number of thralls in play and address them in your role-play note.
If you want to acquire actual game items from another clan, please see ransoming in Capture (Rules)
  • By default, when placed, storage containers are "unlocked" and not everyone remembers to "lock" them. The clan event log is turned on, with player names, for everyone to see.
  • Open containers are there for clans to make resources available to allies (with the use of Egress Doors). There are open containers out in the open world that have been marked as 'free/available to take" for new players. Unless you KNOW something in an open container is available to be taken, DO NOT take it. Further, do not take more then just what you need. This means a few things with a stack amount under 50.
  • If someone has taken items from your offered open chests and you feel it was egregious please open a ticket. However, new players don't read rules, and the damage may already be done. Consider what and where you offer open chests/benches.
Can I take items off a player that is unconscious?
  • Yes, as per the Capture (Rules) you can take items off a players body.
  • The community, in general, only takes items such as lock picks, keys or other RP relevant items.
  • In addition to that, you may only KEEP two items such as a single stack of items, a weapon or an armor piece.
  • More then this can be removed for the purpose of the RP, but we expect you to return it.
  • This point can be negotiated as part of a siege.
