Steal from NPCs at night while no soldiers are in adjacent rooms. It can be hard to find NPCs that actually have anything to steal, but if you're not worried about the 1% chance of getting called out on bullshit, just hand something that weighs around 8 (about the weight of a bone longsword) to an NPC and then try to steal it back. Many NPCs will pick things up on their own, so you can even just drop it in the room.
Normally I'd consider this cheating, but the NPCs in the game have not been given enough things to steal. The entirety of Allanak contains maybe five items that you can realistically fail steal on after journeyman, and one cannot be expected to routinely train steal against PCs, both because it's obnoxious when someone does this and because it's just not something you can get away with more than a couple of times.
Sorry, I lol'd a little at this, but, yeah, considering how many criminal types are condensed into Nak, maybe it'd be a good idea to add more items to NPCs, like things hanging off belts, heavier items in inventory, etc.
Forcing PCs to practice steal on other PCs is just going to end up in unrealistic shitshow witchhunts.

*unless you're able to construct a valid IC reason for two PCs stealing from each other unawares, that makes sense within the context of the game, and isn't simply standing there with your buddy, taking turns stealing broadswords from each others' inventories.

grumble: I mean, there's no hate to it. If a bunch of people come forward with complaints like these, you can't just blame the victims.

grumble: If, as an effect of being revealed, it drives people away from the game, it's not the truth's fault. The truth is the truth. If you don't like the truth, then change the situation to suit the narrative in your head.

Jeshin: I've noticed there is a habit of dehumanizing this board and people who bring complaints as haters, goblins, toxic, etc etc. Yet there is normally very little dehumanization here of staff or players. Or is there

grumble: Fucking dehumanize the world. We're all animals and we do dumb shit. There is nothing divine about humanity. That said, we have standards.
