I didn't see a thread like this, and being that the thief class has always been a favorite of mine, I thought we should have a thread to swap our favorite thief stories. I've had a thief (in one form or another) since I started playing uo back in 2000. And after all this time I think my all time favorite memory is of the poor guy who was trying to move from one house to another using moongates and walking. This was back before AOS, I picked this guy up near the brit moongate. He had his pack fully loaded and was slowly making his way from the gate to his new house a few screens away. He must have been overloaded, because he kept stopping every few steps. The first thing I took off him was his crossbow. I don't think he even noticed, but when some of his rares went missing he suddenly noticed that. He must have tried his equip weapon macro or something because he got really mad all of a sudden when I appeared out of nowhere. I laughed at his tantrum and headed back towards the moongate. A few minutes later he showed up at the gate again. This time on the lookout. On the way to his house again, I snagged another couple items from his pack, and he got mad again and tried to attack me, but its hard to follow and kill a running thief when you're overweighted by your pack. I ran to the bank and made a quick deposit of my booty, and headed back to the moongate again to wait. The third time I wasn't so lucky. He came though the gate with a few friends. I tried for the hat trick, but as soon as they saw me I was shot, stabbed and set on fire before I made it 3 steps into my getaway. Later on when I ran into him he tried to talk smack about how he (and his friends) beat me down earlier, and how I was such a loser. That was when I reminded him about his rares that were now sitting in my bank box. That was when he told me to 'stfu n00b' and took off towards home. I had a good laugh over that one for a long time.
