Pompous merchants are rude merchants wandering around south of The Pick and Lute pub in Taverley. They can be pickpocketed for coins, giving 8 Thieving experience per successful pickpocket. A failed attempt to pickpocket them results in the player stunned for a few seconds and a loss of life points based on the player's total life points.
They are the same as men and women for pickpocketing, but do not have an "Attack" option, so there is no accidental attacking and other players can't kill your target.
Failing to successfully pickpocket the merchants makes them shout "You oaf. Begone!"
Men, women, and pompous merchants can be used to start Thieving by pickpocketing them at level 1. After the Lost Her Marbles caper from the Thieves' Guild, a successful pickpocket gives 20 coins.
