Im playing an awesomely cool dwarf thief/charlatan/master thief. And i love it. However i have a few issues with the careers. Which is the lack of the skill observation. For me observation is kind of the most important skill for a thief, next to skulduggery and stealth, but as it is today its simply not there. I mean you sneak into a mansion unseen, and there you cant hear/see the guarding dogs. And if you get pass the dogs you still cant find the glitter/safe you,'re suppose to steal/lockpick. And further if you find the treasure you still cant find the deadly trap the filthy rich merchant has set to keep unwanted fingers away from his gold. I know i still can buy it for twice the amount of xp, but its like a warrior should have to pay twice xp for weapon skill, in my opinion. So why on earth doesnt thieves/master thieves get observation????
the second problem i got with this game and my sneaky thief is that climb is athletics, a strength based skill which neither is in any of the thief-careers which means my agility 5 is useless when i want to climb up to a window to break in. So to sum up i got a thief that cant climb, that cant see, hear or find ****. Our warriors scale surfaces twice as good as me in their freaking chain-mails
I ve tried to take this up with our GM but hes a Rule-nazi (if you read this, please dont kill me;p). "If its not on my card you pay double". So my question is, how do you guys deal with this in your campaigns? Or am i missing something? Am i as a nimble thief suppose to have strength 6 and pay tons of xp on something that i recon should be my primary skills.
