The sound of leather on stone echoed through the cold night’s air as a gentleman walked down the alley. Lurking from the shadows, the elf waited for him. “Valiiri, I was just loo…” – the words were suddenly cut short by a gurgling sound, as a cold silver dagger found its way to the man’s neck.

Thieves, burglars, assassins, scouts, con artists, and cutpurses, Rogue can be all of that, and even all at once. They can be a danger lurking from the shadows, an expert pickpocket, a master climber, a smooth lockpicker, and a skillful spy when needed.

They prefer speed and mobility over brute strength and use light weapons and armor while resorting to a ranged weapon at some point in time. Some even learn magic, and while they might not be as strong as a wizard, the spells are potent enough.

Adventuring life falls easy for them as they like to be on the move, considering some of the illicit dealings they might be involved in. Some get their names heard, praised, and cursed. Among them, you might recognize Jack Skystride, Nuala Kriswind, and Aelric Harlstone.
