It Takes a Thief . . . When brute force won't get the job done, you need someone with . . . skills. A specialist. Preferably someone who doesn't let a lot of nagging concerns about law or morality get in the way. Whether you're looking for just the right character to round out an adventuring party, or a dangerous NPC to challenge your players, GURPS Rogues has what you need – 29 different templates, letting you quickly create the scoundrel that's right for the job. Templates include . . . Thieves who are only in it for the money, such as the armed robber, cat burglar, pirate, pickpocket, housebreaker, and forger. Rogues who have other goals than mere material gain, like the spy, hacker, evil mastermind, mad scientist, and saboteur. Charmers who work more with people's minds than with lockpicks and prybars . . . the con man, bard, fixer, gambler, prostitute, and street doctor. Mysterious figures who work on the shadowy edges of society -- the tracker, poacher, assassin, master thief, smuggler, mobster, and black marketeer. Each template comes with four complete characters, drawn from a wide range of settings. All told, you get 116 ready-to-use sample characters, as well as historical background and information on the technology and tactics that shaped their professions. This version of GURPS Rogues also comes bundled with the 24-page GURPS Update , providing information on how to upgrade these GURPS Third Edition templates and characters to Fourth Edition!
