Comic #1581

1 [sound]: {from computer terminal} Bing!
1 Iki Piki: Okay, the money is transferred.
2 Shady black market weapons dealer: Excellent... Now, prepare to be dismembered for your organs. {a shady goon with a gun appears and points it at the heroes}
2 Iki Piki: What? We trusted you!
3 Shady black market weapons dealer: There is no honour among thieves.
3 Iki Piki: But I'm not a thief!
4 Serron: And Kleptomania is in my species template, so technically it's just an involuntary compulsion!

Serron is a sparrial, a species included in the second edition versions of GURPS Space. Sparrials do indeed have Kleptomania as part of their species template. Do you know how hard it is for a gamer to accurately roleplay a species with a compulsive tendency to steal stuff?

I don't think I need to say any more after that.

2017-06-21 Rerun commentary: Kleptomania seems to be a popular choice for a species-wide personality quirk. The halfling-like kender of TSR's Dragonlance fictional world and roleplaying setting also have it.

For more examples, simply refer to TV Tropes.
