Stealing

I tried searching the forums and haven't run across it, but has there been any word on how stealing from PCs, NPCs, random homes, or enemies (PC and NPC alike) will work?

I know it's an MMO and not sure if it can work like the other ES titles. But, has anyone run across or heard anything from the community or devs on how this will work, or if it can?

Thanks in advance!

Nope, we have no proper information regarding thievery. One thing however is certain. We will be incapable of stealing from other players, due to the nature of the game.

I hope there is prison, I want to see hundreds of people stuck in there, with one lockpick... between them.

One lock pick to rule them all,
One lock pick to find them,
One lock pick to bring them all
and in the darkness free them.

The only thing they've said is that we will be able to take things from crates, barrels, NPC homes etc. Nothing really in regards to stealing from other players. And, of course, nothing on the consequences of stealing from the NPCs themselves. Although I'd be surprised that if you get caught stealing it doesn't at least impact how those NPC's feel about you.

Doubt it will be anything quite as drastic as the single player games.

If homes are instanced, I can see it working. Everything else, not so sure. Plus, I want to go into a friends house (when/if implemented) and steal everything he owns. If not steal it, mess it all up and make it look ransacked.

Just realised I don't want a stealing/crime system in an mmo if accidental stealing is possible. Because I hate accidently stealing things and then hearing a "Stop thief" and getting hassled by guards.

If so hopefully the guards will work properly since they tend to have bugs where they won't stop attacking, or second thing may be to not have the option of fighting back. Since there will be no reloading in an mmo to solve this.

Hope they'll change some things if you've ever run into guards with enemys chasing you they attack and if they accidentaly hit eachother with a stray arrow you must die in their eyes.
