OOTU Definition[]

The term Rogue was first recorded in the Sixteenth century, being defined in the Vagabond Act as someone who possessed no land of their own and no other legitimate source of income. An individual caught on act faced severe punishment, such as whipping or branding the letter "R" on their bodies.

Since then, the definition of Rogue has become more flexible. The term generally refers to a dishonest person who is unprincipled, deceitful, and unreliable, but not necessarily a criminal. In a more vague definition, a Rogue can be anyone who discards conventional rules of conduct in order to follow their personal values.

In Game Definition[]

Rogues have little in common with each other. While some - maybe even the majority - are stealthy thieves, many serve as scouts, spies, investigators, diplomats, and simple thugs. Rogues are versatile, adaptable, and skilled at getting what others don't want them to get. While not equal to a fighter in combat, a rogue knows how to hit where it hurts, and a Sneak Attack can dish out a lot of damage. Rogues also seem to have a sixth sense when it comes to avoiding danger. Experienced rogues develop nearly magical powers and skills as they master the arts of stealth, evasion, and sneak attacks. In addition, while not capable of casting spells on their own, a rogue can sometimes "fake it" well enough to cast spells from scrolls, activate wands, and use just about any other magic item.

  • In the Middle Ages existed a holiday named Rogue's Day, which took place in the last Saturday in August. Unfortunately, it was the day in which most rogues were executed by the mob.
