So far, I've been living on the straight and narrow, not taking that which is not mine, and being a generally upstanding Sharkman.
But the longer I play this game, the more old habits cry out to me. RPG Kleptomania is setting in, and if it's not nailed down, well, by gum I'm going to take it!
Catch is of course, that some of the nice stuff that's not nailed down is in containers that, when moused over, display a red interaction icon, instead of the normal silver gauntlet. It appears that this indicates that the goods in question have an owner, who will be none to happy with my purloining of their pilferables.
However, I just took a fairly nice cape from such a container in the Black Hound Inn in Gilded Vale. The nameless NPC who shared a room with the chest in question - the presumptive owner - told me off briefly, but took no action against me.
At what point will my criminal ways catch up to me and get me in trouble? Is getting yelled at by NPCs with no actual plot or dialog value really the worst I can expect?
