Was this really discontinued? JalYt-Xil-Vimescarrot 08:41, 27 January 2007 (UTC)

If it was, why?--Andy mci 09:03, 18 February 2007 (UTC)

Um... I haven't done any thieving recently, but pretty sure it's still in use. Avian Maid

It's not in the manual any more... JalYt-Xil-Vimescarrot 17:43, 28 February 2007 (UTC)
I just noticed that myself. I'm trying to find out more. Avian Maid
Edit: I'm not finding anything conclusive. A few different places seem to think he's gone, but no one's certain. Probably safe to say he's discontinued, I suppose. Not really sure why he would be, though. Avian Maid
It was most likely removed because players were already weak from thieving failures so they were killed with no way to retailiate or even retreat. I died that way once, but fortunately had nothing of vaule. Cool Spy0 06:43, 10 March 2007 (UTC)

Wait, wasnt the watchman in the video where the wise old man robbed the bank? Cuz the wie old man did kill him, meaning that he was attackable, unlike the guy in the pillory random event.--Pkthis 02:55, 19 March 2007 (UTC)

I watched the bank robbery cutscene last night, and the Watchman in that cutscene was replaced with a pillory guard! I'm guessing that it was more realistic, as a watchman in real life would want to lock you in a small cage, not kill you with a mace. 24.66.94.144 20:50, 25 March 2007 (UTC)


Its still debatable. I think it was deleted though, as I thieve regularly and haven't gotten it. Also a security guard(even if not for thieving), pillory guard, and a watchmen is a bit much don't you think. I think we should find out more, and then fix the article to contain the proper information. Right now I think we should change the information to an unsure state not to confuse players who read our articles.

Lol the kill you with a mace made me think of how in china they would chop off your hand for stealing. Onyx.pngMalestro 15:38, 29 March 2007 (UTC)

It was not discontinued! Since I'm not a member, I asked my friend if I could watch her theive for a little while. Sure enough, after about an hour our so of picking pockets, she got the event! Oh, and while we're talking about discontinued random events, I got Tangler Vine in Karajma while I was PB4P (picking bananas 4 profit). Bat shish.pngFlango2Green gloop soup.png talk

I went from 77 to 99 Thieving straight and never once got the Watchman random. Cool Spy0 03:03, 10 June 2007 (UTC)

Why is there no mention of the Yanille watchmen?--Kodeman76 05:04, 12 January 2009 (UTC)
