Gameplay feature: Pickpocketing

Group Description

Games where the player's character or individual player-controlled party members may optionally attempt to steal items from non-player characters (NPCs); an activity known as pickpocketing, which if the attempt successful will result in items or money.

Limitations
  • Please refer to the traditional understanding of pickpocketing, where the attempt is to steal objects from an unaware victim's pockets or equivalent container. Thus, non-traditional equivalents of pickpocketing should be excluded from this game group, such as stealing magical energy, stealing alchemic byproducts from monsters (e.g. stealing a strand of hair from living minotaur), unless examples of the traditional understanding of pickpocketing still applies (e.g. stealing gold from a wandering traveller without him/her knowing).

  • Not to be confused with robbing a victim, where the victim is made aware of the attempt to relinquish objects in his/her possession beforehand.

  • Games where pickpocketing is only part of a plot, theme, or story and not an optionally accessible player activity should be excluded from this game group.
