You don't know you've lost the item unless its something really obvious (something exeptionally large and heavy, like a war hammer) example, you probably wont notice you're missing gold unless you have a very low amount to start with and you go to use it.

I seriously doubt you know when you have 135,234 gold, and a thief steals 200-300 of it. But if you have 500 gold, and a thief steals 60, you might realize it then next time you open your money pouch.

You probably wouldn't notice the bow that you normally have slung onto the outside of your pack is missing until you go to use it, same with a dagger in it's sheath, or any other small weapon.

I can see a player noticing a medium or larger weapon vanishing, since the wieght would be noticable, but if you've failed your spot then you didn't see the thief take the item then all you've seen is a person walking towards you slowly and then walking away.

hhhmmm malakalam i have to disagree here
first odin sad he saw him sneaking so that spot checked word oke he can suspect something than and if he failed his spot for pping wel maybe he handled wrong the first time

but the second time
he was talking to him when i speak with someone and she/he is pping me than failed spot or not i see him busy in my bag no??

and it doesnt care if he takes a small amount of gold or a dagger or something small

that is rubbisch i think odin was in his full richt there when someone who has absolutly no reason to stand richt next to you and then is running to you in a conversation grabs something out his bag and then runs of please than you are seeing it failed pp spot check or not

Ehhmm, simply, because your character failed his spot check, thats not too hard to understand is it???
Simple rule: You fail your spot check, you dont know that you got stolen from, UNLESS it was either a HUGE item or something that could not be stolen without you noticing it(like your armor or so).

Because you dont see the character walk up to you, sine you failed the spot check, and you are not suspicious at all of the character. It's plain and simple, if you fail the spot check you dont know youve been stolen from unless it's reaally unrealistuic(ie. heavy or huge)

Ugh that whole "lost item: ..." bug is really dumb, I mean I'd have to say its biowares biggest mistake in pp since it give poor roleplayers and excuse to flip out at losing stuff. Basically people if you see the guy come up to you and stand right next to you you can make some comment about him "being too close" or maybe accuse him of stealing fi you're that kind of person. But remember, failing a spot check means you have no idea if he actually stole from you and anyaccusations you make are the accusations you should be making everytime someone stands next to you. Just use common sense people, imagine you are your character in real life...based on your abilities and skills what would you be capable of? What is your attitude? Play based on that on not based on the rolls and statistics the game spits out on you because they are meant to be guidelines for roleplay and not the be all and end all of the game. Common sense is all we need!!

i think bioware whole system is strange i mean how does a halflning rogue hide the enormous flaming greataxe he just stole i mean his race isn't even allowed that weapon beacuse it's to big for them. i really doubt that a halfling could steal something like that but that's just about bioware crap once more. as far as rp i try to do the best i can but i was wondering if maybe some one could set up clear rules. people who constantly play rogues like falk or griff maybe?
