Description

Description

This command allows you to snatch things from people. It will cost you 20 guild points for everything you attempt to steal. It uses the skill covert.manipulation.stealing for determining your bonus. It is more difficult to steal heavier things.

Since snatching is a very unsophisticated method of stealing you'll almost certainly be spotted so you have to specify a direction to run in.

Note: As per the books, some thieves will leave a receipt, some won't. There will still be evidence, and it's up to you to sort it out.

Example

Example

> snatch 5 dollars from ceres leaving south
