I am the DM for an online Evil campaign for D&D. The players just found the Book of Vile Darkness however one of my players decided to pickpocket the book from the player who had found it and had claimed it.

My problem now is that because of this the victim is upset having just received it after much time spent searching, only to have it stolen by another player. The player who stole it claims that they did it for character reasons and has locked it completely out of the victims reach.

I am not certain as to how to proceed with this.

    \$\begingroup\$ Welcome to the site! Take the tour. Is the problem that the player whose PC was the victim is upset? Is the problem that the item isn't in the "right" PC's hands? Is the problem that one PC stole from another PC? Don't just say Yes! as the site needs a specific problem to solve. Pick the biggest one, and edit this question to be about that. Thank you for participating and have fun! \$\endgroup\$ – Hey I Can Chan Jan 22 '19 at 18:33

    \$\begingroup\$ I would consider updating the title to read "a character stole from another character", just to make it more clear what this is about. \$\endgroup\$ – Erik Jan 22 '19 at 18:37

    \$\begingroup\$ This is still pretty unclear. The entire question could do to be revised (by the author) with a careful look at the use of "character" versus "player". It could use some paragraph breaks too - it's tough to read and interpret when formatted as a wall of text. \$\endgroup\$ – T.J.L. Jan 22 '19 at 18:47

    \$\begingroup\$ Also, please include a tag to indicate which edition of D&D this is for. dnd-5e? dnd-4e? dnd-3.5e? etc. \$\endgroup\$ – Purple Monkey Jan 22 '19 at 21:45
