Thieves are a marginal class. They do few things better than any other class, but have a wide range of skills available. Thieves are specialists at thievery and covert actions, being capable of entering areas undetected where more powerful adventurers would fear to tread. They also are the only class capable of using poisons. They are better fighters than clerics, but lack the wide weapon selection of warriors. All thieves begin with the dagger combat skill. The thief's primary stat is Dexterity.

Almost all thief skills are determined by Dexterity, Strength and Luck so potential thieves should make sure they have chosen a race that can train these stats cheaply. Constitution also plays a role- it takes a strong immune system to work with those poisons!
