Armed with twin-bladed weapons and the ability to vanish under the cloak of darkness, the Trickster Rogue is a force of sudden and most certain death. Facing a Rogue can be devastating. Their unique combination of abilities makes them able to daze, stun and slow the enemy, while shredding armor -- or outright ignoring it -- often with deadly results.

A Rogue's abilities revolve around Stealth, allowing the Trickster to move unseen by most enemies and gain strategic advantage over them. Each Encounter Power can be performed while seen, or while Stealthed, each to different ends. This affords a Rogue a measure of versatility in individual engagements.

The Trickster is not without weakness. Clad in mostly leather armor, the Rogue is susceptible to any incoming damage. However, Rogues can Tumble, dodging most attacks and rolling effortlessly out of harm's way.

Ability Scores[edit | edit source]
