"Take from the rich and give to the poor."
Rich = bad? ;D

I hate starting a new page with a post like that. :-\

Especially as "rich" pickpocket targets in BG2 are generally merchants, and you never give more than a few gold to the poor unless you count buying up your rep at the temples. It's more a case of "Take from the middle class and keep it."

Not that I'm looking to turn this into a politics thread . . .

Pickpocketing the guards who IIRC sometimes just carry useless gems, but sometimes scrolls they can't use, is not that bad. He probably got it at his turn at the City Gates anyway. :D Giving to the poor doesn't pay off virtue-wise. It is just market mechanics at work. ;)
People should not be afraid of their governments. Governments should be afraid of their people.

I wrote a fan-fic explaining those scrolls . . .

rich + greed = bad
rich + charity = good

greed + charity = parse error

rich2 + greed 2 = politician

I'd have to say it equals a capitalistic politician.  A Socialist or Buddhist or Ascetic (even though ascetic politicians can't really exist) politician would certainly not be.
