Policy on: Robbing From NPC Houses
Please do not:
Rob houses right in front of a guard, without DM permission. This is because the guard is likely to see you.
Leave the door open right in front of a guard, while you rob the house, when a DM is not on and watching. The guard would obviously react to this.
Steal from houses, when it is not IC for your character to do so, just for gold or loot.
When robbing houses, please stay entirely IC and think about what you're doing. Watch for guards; avoid NPCs; and so on. If you want your character to be foolish about it and do things that will get you caught, contact a DM about it first and work with us on it.
IC repercussions for being caught may vary from town to town; some might just beat you up for it, some may fine you, and others might require you to stand trial.
However, doing things that would obviously get you caught, and getting away with it only because there is no DM on, is AI abuse and will have far more negative consequences.
