Kish Posted August 9, 2005 Author Share Posted August 9, 2005 Secondly, I beg your pardon, but how, how is Candlekeep, the fortress-library, where people are only admitted upon donating a book worth 10,000 is 'a good place' to learn to steal? Point of order. That question is based on a still-incorrect concept of what the D&D class "thief" is. The proper question would be, "How is Candlekeep [etc.] a good place to learn to be an adventurer who picks locks, disarms traps, hides and so on?" And the answer to that question is, I think, at least as evident as the answers to similar questions like, "How is Candlekeep a good place to learn to be a warrior/a priest/etc." and a great deal more evident than the answers to the versions that go with the ranger and druid classes. Why would Gorion encourage his ward to study pick-pocketing or lock-picking? Why should Gorion not encourage his ward to become that particular adventuring class? I could actually see an argument that the only class he should really be happy with is his own--wizard. But your post assumes, once again, that the thief class is something it isn't in D&D.
