Banned I was in a BG a few nights ago with 3 rogues... Larry, Moe, and Curly. They fought well as a team, and I was having a hard time fighting them off as I was laughing my butt off the whole time.

What's the funniest, most clever, or even most outrageous name for a rogue you've either seen or used? Void Lord A thousand and one Night Elf rogues with the name Drift.

A thousand and one Night Elf rogues with the name Drift. Yeah, it's a bit like all the Self hunters named Pergolas (or some other variation).

Old God Our Mist weaver named his character Butt weaver. God dammit I misread the title I thought this was funny names in general.

He slipped out of his royal garments, left eternity to enter time, divinity to wrap himself in humanity. The sea of glass, for the ocean of separation.

He left peace, and for the first time felt pain. Because the very hands that held the stars were now sentenced to wear my scars.

A collection of example character backstories for a variety of rogues generated by GPT-3 at Lit RPG Adventures Workshop and edited by me, Paul Bellow. Here’s a few quick examples of some rogue character backstories for Dungeons & Dragons, Pathfinder, or other RPG tabletop systems.

People would come from miles around to get a bite to eat, to stock up on supplies, or to trade goods. Unfortunately, the Minotaur Wars made such travel dangerous and the flow of people stopped overnight.

After the wars, the towns and villages that were once proud trading partners were now bitter rivals, each one suspicious of the other. After the kingdoms of Nabisco and Craggy were established, people once again began to travel to Blinkenberg, but they had a hard time getting past the front gates of either town.

Female Ogre Rogue Backstory: Clean was born in the city of Wink, which lies in the Kingdom of Gaelic. She had a difficult childhood, as her parents frequently argued, and she was often forced to pick up the pieces.

She worked for many months, saving up enough money to quit her job and leave the city. She has a variety of skills and is constantly searching for ways to expand her skillet, as she has no idea what her future holds.

Appearance: Clean has long black hair and dark brown eyes. Start of Character: After recovering from the terrible wounds she sustained during the Zanuck attacks, Clean has decided it’s time to rejoin the world, as the group needs help in defeating him and his acolytes.

When he learned about the acolytes of An, he felt like he had found his calling. Personality: He is incredibly serious and disciplined, refusing to let his emotions get in the way of his training.

He is not a huge fan of small talk, preferring to get right to the point of conversation. Appearance: Ice shard is slender with pale skin and short white hair.

Female Wood Elf Rogue Born in The Village of Keillor Backstory: Safer lived in Keillor as a child, enjoying the days playing in the boggy marshes, swimming in the river, and exploring all the nooks and crannies of her village.

As she grew older, Safer began to wander, climbing the trees to look out over the ocher-colored hills and the salty ocean beyond. The villagers of Keillor had long necks and short legs, with lanky growths of hair coming from every possible crevice.

The shopkeeper chased her into the streets, but she was able to find a place to hide and escape. Start of Character: Safer is continuing her career as a rogue, addicted to the adrenaline rush of being caught.

Dungeons & Dragons is a fantasy tabletop role-playing game first published in 1974 by Tactical Studies Rule, Inc., but has seen many new versions and expansions since. In Dungeons & Dragons each player plays as a fictional character with various traits and statistics determined at the start and throughout the game.

The characters will embark on an adventure set in a fantasy world and much of it is dictated by the Dungeon Master or narrator, as well as many rolls of various dice. Dice are used to determine the outcome of actions and events, like trying to pick open a door or the activation of a trap.

These celebrities include perhaps sometimes seemingly unlikely people like Vin Diesel, Steven Colbert, Joe Manzanillo, Anderson Cooper, Stephen King and, of course, Felicia Day and Will Wheaton. There are many races in the Dungeons & Dragons universe, for 45 of them I've created a name generator, but more might follow in the future.

Feel free to check it out, I hope it helps you in your dungeon crawling campaigns and character creation ventures. Your Rogue may be a criminal who is good at pick pocketing and burglary, an assassin who knows how to kill silently, or an Arcane Trickster who uses magic to deceive others. Regardless of what type of Rogue you play, you’ll need to know how to maximize your skills and abilities for that particular type.

Every party needs a “Face” character; somebody who knows how to talk to people. They can get allies on the side of the party or lie and manipulate to avoid combat.

Choose Con or Wis for your third priority and dump your bad rolls into Int and STR. If you are going to play a traditional “thief” or “assassin” Rogue, make Con or Wis your second-highest attribute.

Con will allow you to survive combat longer, while Wis will help with Perception and Insight. But if you can make it to levels 9-13, Supreme Sneak will give you an advantage on dexterity checks when you move no more than half your movement speed during a turn, and Use Magic Device will let you ignore all class, race, and level requirements while using magical devices.

And Fey Ancestry will help prevent you from getting charmed or put to sleep Once you get to level 7, this can help you avoid damage using your Evasion class feature.

If you’re playing a Rogue, you want to maximize your dexterity bonus to AC. Another option is to wait until your foe is distracted by one of the other party members, then sneak in with a short sword and stab him in the leg.

Use Perception and Insight to recognize danger and keep your party out of trouble. If a situation looks too dangerous, leave your party behind and use Stealth to infiltrate the enemy, then report back when you’re done.

If you’re playing a Face character, use Persuasion and Deception to find clues, convince guards to let you by, and accomplish other social aims. If playing an Arcane Trickster, use Investigation and Arcane to find answers to your party’s questions about non-magical or magical subjects.

You can be a pickpocket, burglar, assassin, con-artist, or some other character type that survives by sneaking around and hiding in the shadows. But no matter what type of Rogue you play, using the class features, skills, and feats in this guide will make you a helpful addition to any party.

As a bonus action you can grant yourself advantage on your next attack, at the cost of reducing your movement to 0 until the end of the turn. This is a massive buff that means you’ll no longer need to rely on surprise or your allies to get the all-important sneak attack.

Most DMs rule that Thieves' Cant is not a “language” per se as a closely guarded cypher. The Arcane Trickster is a character type that’s been around D&D for a long time, and it’s essentially a delicious mix of Rogue and Wizard that works together like chocolate and peanut butter.

The 5e Arcane Trickster is an incredibly easy take on the concept that is built into the Rogue Class as an archetype, no multi classing required. As a mix of Rogue and Wizard, your two most important stats are going to be Dexterity and Intelligence.

You’ll usually want to make Dexterity your highest stat, and Intelligence a close second. Wisdom and Strength aren’t likely to be important for you, unless you’re doing an extremely strange build or multi class.

As Ex and Int are your most important stats, the best races to use are ones that give you a bonus to both. Beyond keeping Int in mind, you really don’t need to do much else to optimize an Arcane Trickster.

The build options are going to come down to what spells you pick and how you want to play your trickster. Oddly enough, one of the best reasons to BE an Arcane Trickster is a can trip you receive automatically when you select the archetype, Mage Hand.

Slip a bomb into somebody's pocket, open a suspicious door from a distance. I can’t tell you how amazing it feels to unlock a trapped chest from safety 30 feet away.

Beyond the insidious goodness of your powered up mage hand, I advise using one of two general Arcane Tricksters builds: “Stealth Utility” or “Magic DPS” If you want to solve this sort of problem, try taking the Message and Minor Illusion can trips to start with, they’re simple ways to get out of a lot of bad situations.

You can really rely on your sneak attack as your damage dealer, and just pick and choose utility spells like Disguise Self, Knock, Fly, and Invisibility. Think of yourself as a problem solver, and you can bypass a lot of threats before they know you’re there.

Rogues are already excellent damage dealers, and adding a few spells can increase that rate in a rather sneaky way. The Sword Coast Adventurer’s Guide gave us a couple of wizard can trips that you can cast as part of an attack.

I recommend grabbing Green fire Blade and Booming Blade, their big limitation is the use of an action, but as sneak attack can only trigger once a turn anyway, and it can trigger off the attack made as a part of these spells, you essentially get to stack their damage together. Another’s Guide to Everything gave us the gorgeous spell Shadow Blade.

It’s a concentration spell that creates a magical shadowy blade you can make melee weapon attacks with, and beyond how cool that sounds/is it is also a light, finesse, and thrown, weapon that deals a base 2d8 psychic damage. Let’s count this out, assuming a 7th level Arcane Trickster with let’s say 16 in both Dexterity and Wisdom.

Probably one of the best picks if you’re heading into a mystery adventure where you’ll be needing to look for clues. This is the rogue you play if you want to manipulate events, without putting yourself in harm’s way.

Aside from all the unique role play tricks, you also get an ability that makes interesting use of the “help” action. You can easily keep out of danger, while granting your allies advantage from a distance.

Grab this for a role play heavy adventure, and just use your physical abilities as dump stats. Grab this if you want to play a rogue dripping with charisma and charm.
