As I previously mentioned, there are a plethora of ways to ‘fix’ thieves (beyond leaving them out of the game entirely). This originally started as another means of ‘fixing’ thieves, and not one I came up with on my own either (see below). However, the idea stuck with me so long that I couldn’t NOT do something with it. I know a lot of people hate skill systems with a passion, and I get that. Equally, I’ve played with a lot of players that feel hamstrung by characters without some crunch ‘meat’ on their bones. Take this as you will. Personally I could use something like this quite easily.
