    I know there are thieves on Siege outside of Barter Town. We don't see you much, besides Sundays. Always tripping over you then. I also know you don't like talking in gen chat, or even when I'm standing next to you. And you all seem to ignore the Thief forum on stratics.

    But I want to connect with you guys, I want you to have your time in the spotlight. You need fame and glory to grow! So for the next week I want it to be ON!

    Therefore I will give away 1 million gold to the winner of a small competition.

    The only thing you'll have to do is get a screen shot of a steal and post it in this thread. Only set in stone rules are;
    Your name visible
    Marks name visible
    "Success message" visible (OK if it's in the journal)
    And of course the item in question visible

    Can't get it all in one shot? Post more!
    No need to limit yourself to one entry either, enter every steal you get if you want. Like to write a story with pictures in it? Even better, I LOVE those!

    Anyone without a fully trained thief? Get out there with your 70 stealing, or slap on a bandana, 120 mysticism scrolls weigh nothing. ^^

    Judging will be made by me. Based on value of the steal. Location, storytelling, bribing and other stuff may come in to play.

    Oh, and you may count entries here as your required steals to join Barter Town if you like.

    Competition starts NOW and ends a week from NOW!

    And make sure you wear something, you sneaky thieves!

    Good luck all.

    How do you take a quick screen shot in uo?

    In the Encanced Client - just hit the Print Screen button and the pic is saved in the SA Client folder in My Documents. In the classic client hit print screen - then open a program like MS Paint (that one comes with Windows under accessories) then hit "Control V" to paste the pic into MS Paint. Then you can save the pic in your desired format.

    Tough work stealing here, just not a lot of people around. I did get to snoop my first two marks!

    We've just learned to Hide & Stealth ourselves in self defense. We're out there. :)

    You one of those people that aren't there that I run into off & on?

    Can't count on getting something good everyday. But people are still out there doing incredible stuff with valuables. Hang in there.

    events are great times for snooping and stealing. I try to have unique bottles of booze in my pack for thieves and PKs.

    Oh and keep an eye out for when our EM is here to help us lock down plants in New Mag. That is usually once a week.

    Should have no problem picking something up even if there is no event. Just so you know, you don't have to make an amazing steal to win. I'll pay up for almost anything that's not on the level of a normal sewing kit. Especially since there is no entries at the moment. The point is just to have some fun.
    But, as said, most of the thieves I know about seem to be online only at the weekends. So I still have my hopes up!

    I'm not looking for anything amazing, just something I can use. I'd be thrilled with stealing some orange petals or egg bombs. I'm just not going to risk getting dry looted for 4 bandages.

    Hooray!
    Big plus for stealing from GIL! Also finding someone in a dungeon is good.

    Now it's only 28 hours to go. Got one nice submission, but it would be fun with some competition.

    Well, didn't really get the number of entries I was hoping for. But might try it again some other time.

    Oh, and of someone wanted to get in on it but just didn't make a steal this week. The thief forum, here on stratics, runs a "thief of the month" competition all the time. The winner gets 1.5 mil, but there needs to be at least two entries.

    And feel free to post here if you want another round, got more money to spare.
