Ironically, for a character class that includes so much versatility, rogues are all too often pigeonholed into very narrow set roles. For some, the path of the rogue is not just a way to make easy money by taking what is not yours, or a path to the respect of your peers, who learn not to turn their back on you for fear of what you might do. The true master rogue takes pride in his work, determined to make more of himself than just another corpse in cheap leather armour, and achieving heights of prestige to which no other class can reach. The ideal rogue chooses his fields of study carefully and practices meticulously, making sure that his abilities complement one another.
