Default About thieves and end of the game

Hi,
I had a question about the thief: If the thief is the lowest level in the game and receive cards from the other that are discarding the card to have 5 cards in their hand, can the thief have 6-7 attempt to steal cards from the other players or do he have to discard to have 5 cards in hand and then he can steal cards to the others ?

If i am lvl 7, i sell items to gain 2 lvls and then i use a card to gain 1 lvl, can another player use a card to make me loose 1 lvl so i don't win the game, or i win because i said that i use my cards so i am lvl 10 ?

Excuse my english i am french so it's a bit hard for me ^^

Unless the final card allows victory, you must be in a combat to obtain the winning level.

First question: Your hand size does not matter until the end of YOUR turn. Having more than five cards in your hand during your turn is fine, as long as you end with only five.

Second question: You cannot sell items or use a GUAL card to gain the winning level. (A very, VERY few cards will let you, such as Divine Intervention, but they are absolutely explicit about granting the winning level.) That said, once you have attained Level 10, it is too late for the other players to do anything about it unless they have a card that says it can prevent the winning level.

Thanks for answering me ^^
I have some other questions:
I saw somewhere on internet that a thief can only Steal during his turn is that true ?
Otherwise if i chose to sell an item during my turn , can a thief steal it after i told that i sell the item ?

A thief can steal anytime she and her victim are not in combat. Once someone has said they are selling a specific Item, it's too late to try to steal it.
