Guess what? Through a comment on the latest post at Tenkar's Tavern, I saw this post at B/X Blackrazor. The sheer awesomeness of this is off the chart. It solves two huge problems I have with the thief:
- It keeps low-level thieves from sucking so loudly. It really is insane that a class that is devoted to doing Thiefly Shit™ should suck so horribly at it.
- Since thieves auto-succeed at mundane Thiefly Shit™ it makes it easier to allow non-thieves to attempt "thief actions" in mundane circumstances.
