PK Draft: Your rogue companion

rogue cat

The Rogue archetype in high fantasy has always been my favorite - I suspect that's because in most books, only the rogue is ever allowed to evidence any sort of personality. Dirty jokes? Second thoughts? Acknowledgement of having a life outside the Epic Quest? All fall to the Rogue.

In high fantasy, the Rogue has a teaching role as well. If the Wizard is out there revealing the True Magical Nature of Things, the Rogue's role is often to show the Seedy Underbelly of the Way Things Are. The Wizard talks about big evils, the Rogue shows off the little ones.

Lots and lots of options here. Interpret broadly.

Standard rules apply - 5 picks until you pick again. Argument always encouraged.
