    can we please , in light with the upcoming publish , get a thief character added to the adavanced character token line up ?
    skills i am thinking:
    stealing 85
    snooping 85
    begging 85
    lockpicking 70
    hiding 70
    and of course Stat's to match the skills...

    this would give me reason to purchase the storage + character upgrade and a advanced character token aswell.

    Not to take from your idea, Lord Kynd, but I wish they would add the alchemist template back. Not a hard skill, but very tedious once you've done it a few times.

    well, at least i said 'prolly' :p
    i am shocked tho.. sorta .

    "Not to take from your idea, Lord Kynd, but I wish they would add the alchemist template back. Not a hard skill, but very tedious once you've done it a few times. "

    just wondering.

    no problem.
    i am sure there are ton's of basic templates they 'could' add.
    i'm guessing we just need to show support for such a change ? who knows.
    maybe this threed will get something changed :) that would rock.

    Poisoning. Ugh. I thought my brain would melt and dribble out of my ears with sheer boredom. I didn't think stealing was quite so bad!

    Why Begging?

    It isn't a thief skill. Beggars ask, thieves take - it's a world of big difference. Swap that out for Ninjitsu or something else more complimentary to stealing.

    Halloween brought to light a whole mess of scripted beggars. It's bad enough we have those let alone legitimising cheating through advanced characters.

    see there is another one that could be implemented into the advance character service.

    i also think adding to that service might help combate people scripting these skills, never know tho.
    i would rather see positive changes tho than see more people banned or not playing because they find some things to difficult.

    how is Ninjitsu tied into a thief ?

    I'm not a fan of banning scripters. I prefer to inconvenience the bloody hell out of 'em instead :D

    Incidentally - the one time I did catch up with a scripter and very politely asked him not to do it, I was subjected to the most foul mouthed stream of abuse you can imagine. Someone had killed him, and he thought he should be able to script and break the rules without interference.

    If we want a level playing field start, then we should all either start with advanced chars or not. And if we're not, then no tokens. If people can't be bothered to take the time to work at a skill to raise it (and hey, it's gonna be worse from advanced, right? Higher skill, slower gains etc) then why bother to play the game? Not because they love it and care about it, that's for sure. I often wonder if there's a correlation between the 'I WANT IT NOW' attitude we see in rl, where people go into debt for things that really aren't necessary, but because they 'have' to have the latest car/gadget/house/boat/stock portfolio and the scripters. I think maybe the want it nows are creating the market for the scripters, which is really really sad.

    Btw, the char I see most often scripting is tamer, which is already available via advanced chars. Kinda blows that theory out the window, huh?

    Ninjas were traditionally assassins and thieves. As opposed to say, chefs or botanists.

    Add whatever you like, all I'm saying is Begging doesn't belong on the thief advanced char token. It's bad enough you can't role play a beggar without some dimwit calling you a scammer, let alone tarring beggars with the same brush as thieves.

    Please excuse my English but I feel very passionately about some things to which most people never give a second thought.

    I think you'd be better off just going out and training the skills manually. Just because stealing has some interesting benefits, doesn't mean it should suddenly be an advanced template you can buy. I think it'd be a kick in the teeth for thieves, beggars and thunters (those who didn't satyr train) to then see players buy their way in. We have enough of that already IMO. Besides, your proposed template may suit you, but I don't think that's a good template to appeal to a broad range of players. It's far from viable for PvM or PvP stealing, looks more like your personal wish list if I'm honest.

    never said it didn't need to be 'tweaked' a little bit, i think they should add more templates to it honestly. or even a 'jackpot' character.. where you pick which skills you want but with the same 'soft caps ' as the already availiable advanced characters.
    85 for 3 skills and 70 for 2 skills that would be ideal.
