2cd ed stat block for Tieflings?

I mostly need to know what their resistances are and what they got for bonuses to thief skills? I can't find this on the net anywhere. I think they had some resist vs fire, cold, electricity and no idea on thief skills.

    There are several player character stat and ability blocks for planetouched races here.Granted it is 3rd edition, but its generally accepted to translate to 2nd ed. by reducing stat bonuses and penalties by half.

    That did NOT give their thief skill bonuses at all Kami. I had to look them up in Planewalkers guide which I remembered I had on PDF.

    From what I recall they basically weren't in second edition. They appeared more in 3/3.5 from what I can recall honestly. At least as something meant to be played by players.

    The published 2E info is two posts up.

    Thaco's link doesn't work for me so if it's in there I'm sorry. he also states his was 3E.

    As for the other. It's an NPC statblock. And part of why I clarified the part about being played as characters by players. But to be fair. I only remember the Planeswalkers guide to be a 3E and later book as well. Which I could admit I may be wrong there as well.

    Sorry about the link, the site seems have gone gone the day after I posted it. 3e was I believe the earliest that tieflings could be player characters, hence why I gave you a 3e link. The raw stats should have been simple enough to convert.

    The link @Kamigoroshi posted contains the information you need for a Tiefling PC. The information is essentially the same as in the Planewalker's Guidebook for AD&D 2nd Edition.

    Tieflings gain a +1 bonus to Intelligence and Charisma, and suffer a -1 penalty to Strength and Wisdom. They can be any alignment but lawful good. All tieflings have infravision to 60’ and can create darkness 15’ radius once per day. All tieflings suffer only half damage from cold and gain a +2 to saving throws versus fire, electricity, and poison.

    Tieflings may become fighters, rangers, wizards (including specialists), priests, thieves, or bards. They can also be the following multi-classes: fighter/wizard, fighter/priest, fighter/thief, wizard/thief, and priest/thief.

    The Planewalker's Guide also gives rules for replacing the darkness 15' ability and resistances with other abilities/resistances. But the standard abilities are as given in the Monstrous Manual link above.

    Yes I was saying it was the earliest I could recall as well. My second post was clarifying towards that in my first post in reply to saying the 2e information of them was in a post above mine. No need to apologize about the link not working. It didn't overall change what I could recall very much. It would only have been a curiosity look for me to see how much they had changed from 3e to 5e.
