One of the most fun Members skills in Runescape is Thieving, as you can find a great number of things to do with the skill. When you first start off you can only enjoy a small part of the countless bounties to be earned from your new-found forte, but as you get more skilled a wider range of things can be done with it.
There are several things that you can practice your thieving on as you get better, but remember that you need to be both stealthy and cautious. Each activity has a dangerous side to it, from a not-so-tough Man stunning you, to a Knight attacking you with full force.
If you are successful, you gain some loot and thieving experience. If unsuccessful however, you will be stunned by the NPC for about 4 seconds and have damage done to you. When stunned, you will see and hear birds circling your head and be unable to walk or pickpocket. Instead, use this time to heal your life points or drop unwanted bounty.
The higher your thieving level, the less likely you are to be caught by your victims. Additionally, level 54 hunters can make and wear gloves of silence. These gloves decrease the chances of being caught while pickpocketing, but can wear out after extended use. Luckily, they can also be repaired.
