Crime "DOES" pay in Morrowind!!!!
Want to make easy money for your begining character,without a cheat,but a loop hole in the game. In the start of the game "BEFORE" you leave the Census and Exsise office and are offically released,and( before you get your papers from the Officer).You can steal anything in both buildings.The way you do this is: Make sure your far enough away from the guards before you snatch something so it gives you time to drop it out of your inventory.Drop said item out of your inventory before the guard(s) approch you.Then pick it up and it's yours and not considered by the game to be stolen,even if you have made another atempt on another item in this manner.Then rinse and repeat(so to speak).However, this "ONLY" work here in the inital first two buildings.The reason the game behaves this way is.Since your still tech. a prisoner(of the Emperor,and on a special mission and have it like that :) ) They don't fine or arrest you,just let you off with a warning.Hope everyone enjoys the tip.If I find anymore I will release the loop holes.P.S. this works even after the lastest offical Morrowind patch.
