Rogue

From Obscura

Supposedly named for its unconventional combat style, rather than the behaviour of its members, but some insist on being called “scouts” or “skirmishers” nonetheless. The rogue school focuses on the use of wits and cunning to gain advantage, evade attacks and exploit vulnerabilities. This school has options for melee and ranged combat, and excels at hit and run tactics and skirmishing.
