      @JoCat You know, it was once said that the greatest masterpieces always contain one intentional flaw because attempting to create perfection angered god. Also, get Observant on your Inquisitive, and walk around with 20+ passive perception and ruin all your DMs traps.

    So far I've only played rogues. Had a human assassin merc who had a somewhat rough background. A dishonored hobgoblin who'd taken on an assassin's mantle and forged his own code of honor and helped liberating slaves in a city ran by slaver, but jailed for his (based) crimes against slave-owners. A non violent halfling thief taking on a haunted mansion job due to debts. And now a socially awesome foreign swashbuckler. Who instead of brooding at the tavern goes around mingling with people, getting the latest news and rumors.

    In our campaign, the rogue is our comic release. We had an encounter with a Red Wizard and his guards, and we accidentally killed 2 of their skeletons, because we wanted to go around them to avoid fighting, but the skeletons were right infront of us. We rolled a persuasion, and convinced the guy to let us go, because it was an accident, and we didn't know those belonged to them. We were allowed to leave, but the guy sent another two skellyboys after us so that he can make sure we wouldn't go back. The skeletons stopped after following us for 10 minutes, and just stared at us, not doing anything, even when our tabaxi rogue poked his finger into one of the skellies eyesocket. Long story short, even tho I (a monk aarakocra) tried to convince the others not to kill them, because we could anger the guy more if he finds out, we demolished them. We took a skull and some ribs so that we can craft out of them later, and the mother flippin rogue built 2 scarecrows out of the dead skeletons, and left a note on a nearby bark saying "Thanks for the bones, sucker". It was hilarious.

    arcane trickster is the best rogue, they can have a familiar that can give you advantage on pretty much every round, they can use illusions to enhance every aspect of their craft. they can make a shadow blade and use it to do even more ridiculous damage. what does assassin do? they get extra damage sometimes...

    I was the Rogue in my first game of D&D. I think I was 10 at the time. I remember almost nothing about it except every time we entered a room my party would shout, in sink, "JOHN (not my real name) SEARCH FOR TRAPS". Although it was annoying back then but funny to look back on. because of this, the Rogue is my favourite class.

    My rouges backstory? He worked on a farm, got bored, and left to find something more exciting. Thus he met the party. He is currently regretting it after being batted across a field by an ogre (with a broken hand because I crit with a rock) and cracking a few ribs and braking his spine... My dice hate me.

    so, i just got into dnd and i made an edgy rogue by accident- and when i discovered that edy rogues are hated i kind of felt bad, so im trying my best to make the experience enjoyable to the other players and dm! here's a list of things i do -i asked the dm suggestions to the backstory, he added a cool feature to it (bassicly that his parents where cursed to have a furry child and that's why they hate it) -i made some characters that can beat the rogues ass, and that are looking for him (this helps the backstory and also the dm to make some scenario ideas!) -the rogue will actually help the party- he kind of feels like a problem to them so he has to repay somehow, also he needs to be protected because a mafia is looking for him -i dont use sneak attack because i dont know how- -i base some of the decisions in "that's what my character would do", but i asume the consequences of those actions im not sure if im doing good and that's why i leave this here, what do you guys think? am i doing good or should i change something?

    My favorite rogue back story goes like this My mom was a lock smith who taught me the trade and my dad was a drunk asshole who taught me to steal wallets I have no reason to be here other than I want to fuck with people and leave them guessing about reasoning for doing things That's it I roll a general rogue sheet with whatever variation I choose and don't bother being and edgy asshat I've yet to find a dm who didn't enjoy the fact that I never once tried to betray the group and that I wasn't an edge lord drama queen that said having such a generic character can make longer story lines boring so I kinda have to make a better back story when we're gonna do a long one but for a quick one shot that only last a month at most they don't need my entire life story they just need enough to know who I am and what I'm generally about I did once leave an overly cautious group to go off on my own with the dms approval (I don't like making the dms life any harder than neseccary) and ended up having more fun by quietly texting the dm and clearing all enemy npcs out of the way of the main groups path and putting them all on edge for like three sessions then just sitting at the entrance to the big bads castle for two more sessions as the group stayed in the same tavern less than a mile from the castle thinking the castle was to obvious and the big bad was clearly a patron at the tavern then they thought I was the big bad when they went to the castle yeah me and the dm decided to find a new play group after that they were just no fun to play with they were overly attached to their characters and one girl literally broke down crying when her character died in the boss fight

    I was thinking of a Dragonborn roque character who was orphaned because of a family tradition where the new born must be raised on the streets, being a dragon he has a unhealthy dose of greed for gold and wishes to have enough of it to sleep on, his plan to do this is order a drink from a tavern throw the mug out the window say he lost the mug retrieve the mug and sell it to another tavern owner and than repeat the process.

    I've been playing an unchained rogue (sylph) in a pathfinder campaign for a few years now(yes, I know, not DnD, but similar enough for the purposes of this post). My characters parents(both human) are dead, but that's more because they died peacefully in old age since my character is in her eighties(sylphs can live to be several hundred years old, being descendants of elementals). She learned acrobatics by climbing everything she could growing up, and all together like wandering and just doing whatever interests her, generally causing havoc as she goes around, mostly cuz I wanted her to do whatever she felt like(including joining a slave trading ring, then proceeding to destroy it because she was bored). Her motivation for money is that she's married to a paladin that keeps taking in orphans, so she's got a lot of Mouths to feed. I love her, and she can currently fly, so I'm having a lot of fun just dropping from the ceiling to just cleave enemies to death with the sheer amount of sneak attack she can do.

    I’m currently playing a rouge who has all the stereotypes. Well, the thing is, this rouge is a hot headed three foot tall hafling. This soon led to the entire party calling my halfling a child just because they saw it annoyed him. Probably my favorite character to play so far. He also isn’t neutral or evil. He’s actually good. And a good bit of a coward if no one else is in danger. Such a wonderful character to play.

    I remember making a rogue using point buy, I had 10 in all stats and i remember pumping points into Charisma Dex and Constitution I gave him intimidation and stealth proficiency, I also gave him investigation and persuasion. He has a rapier, daggers, and a longbow, still waiting for the next group DND session, my rogue is also a dark elf so a boost to dex and charisma I believe, for my double proficiencies I chose intimidation and stealth, mind you my character is short as hell, and is batshit crazy, I put points in charisma so that I am really good at talking people out of shit, into shit, doing shit, not doing shit, telling us shit and etc. This was my first DnD character, I think I did well...
