What Are You Playing? (Thieves)

In an effort to learn how different campaigns have progressed in the four years since AS&SH™ was published and to measure the impact of any potential rule changes* in Second Edition, I'm launching a series of polls to determine what classes and levels are being played. Please tell me the highest-level character of each class in your current campaign. Thanks for your feedback.

* Please note that our design goal is for 99.9% compatibility with the original boxed set. Any changes will be minimal, but if we learn that (for instance) no one has played a witch past 8th level, then there'd be no real harm in introducing a new rule that states a 9th-level witch weighs the same as a duck**.

** No such rule is being considered at this time.

What's the highest-level thief in your campaign?

Us, too! I mean, we had one. But most thiefly duties devolved to legerdemainists and scouts.

I let my son switch his Thief to Legerdemainist once he learned the difference. All accusations of nepotism are fair, but will be ignored nonetheless.

My son plays a straight thief and is about to hit level 2.
