TACTICS

Before Combat The rogue prefers to work from the shadows, manipulating events and people to do his bidding. If combat is needed, he always attacks from surprise, when his foes least expect it.

During Combat The rogue prefers to move up, strike suddenly, withdraw before his foes can respond, and use his hat of disguise to change his appearance once he’s out of sight. He relies on his rogue talents to protect him.
