Sometimes brute force of magical might aren’t the answer and a more nuanced touch is required – or that brute force and magical might could use a more precise touch. Rogues apply this principal to everything they do; from combat to social situations and it serves them well.
A rogue is someone who has learned to live by their wits, charisma, deep study or intensive training. Many are dedicated tradesfolk; locksmiths, scouts, academics, mechanics, chemists, etc; often employing these trades as their primary defense if they choose the path of adventure.
