You've managed to avoid almost every RPG
game right? The FIRST rule of adventuring is to STEAL EVERYTHING that isn't bolted down*! If you can carry it you steal it! Coins, gemstones, rubbish bits of armour. Anything you can lay your hands on you steal!
I mean, sure, Skyrim
doesn't get referred to as Inventory Management Simulator
for nothing - but then Skyrim
doesn't preach that Tau confiscating barrels full of ravenous squid monsters is bad, but stealing from a market stall is fine so long as you're trying to help your freind.
And in the first book we learned that looting shops doesn't warrant passing judgement over, but selling space on your own starship makes you reprehensible.
Perhaps this is why we don't generally turn to pre-teens for lessons on morality.
