The Rogue - A Dungeon World Playbook

Watermarked PDF

Welcome to the GM's Day sale! From now through March 14th, this title has been marked down by up to 40%! For more values, visit our GM's Day sale page.

This class deviates from the thief in more than name. Backstab is replaced with sneak attack, which is more flexible and doesn't contradict the rulebook about attacking things unawares, stealthy and evasion make you more difficult to notice and pin down, and tricks of the trade handles the Dexterity-based skills: instead of giving you all of them at the start you get one from your background, and you get to choose a second (an advanced move lets you grab the third if you want).

The twenty-nine advanced moves provide you with numerous ways to customize your character. As with most of our classes there are move trees or paths to choose from: you can move around while hiding without being noticed, deal more damage with sneak attack (and more easily assist your party), make yourself even harder to hit and harm, specialize in your skills, make ranged sneak attacks, learn to use and make poisons, and more.

There's also a bunch of new weapons, armor, and dungeon gear, several magic items (including a dagger that you can jam in someone's head to animate and control them until you take it out), and an arcane trickster compendium class if you want to learn a bit of magic to supplement your other talents.

This product contains three files.

The first is a letter-sized character sheet that uses our new character sheet layout (so we could fit all of the advanced moves on the back).

The other two are digest-sized PDFs, one in color, the other in black and white to make it easier to print at home. They both contain:

  • The rogue class (which includes 29 advanced moves).
  • New weapons, armor, dungeon gear, and magic items.
  • The arcane trickster compendium class (8 moves in total)
  • Six extra moves we couldn't fit on the sheet
  • A Director's Cut with questions to ask yourself when rolling up a rogue, explanations/clarifications for some of the moves, and a suggestion for an assassin background if you want to better use poisons right away.

Love your take on the Thief/Rogue for Dungeon World. In the introduction you state the following:
"So, rather than all rogues being good at the same skills, you get one skill with your background, get to choose a second, and a 2-5 advanced lets you pick up the third."

I have read and re-read the Advanced Moves (2-5) and I am just not seeing a move that gives you the option to pick up the third skill. Is that an oversight? Or did you go back and change it so rogues are only good at two skills, but missed updating the Intro? I'm about to play this class in a game, and I'd love to have this sorted out. You guys make amazing classes! Thanks for all of your hard work!

Hi, I bought this (and most of your other playbooks) and is sad to say that your character sheets looks awful when printed.
Looking at the sheets the text isn’t selectable and some of the fonts is blurry even before it’s printed.
Could you save the Sheets with selectable text so they can be upscaled when printed?

Looks like this is because I created those character sheets entirely using Photoshop. I figured at 300dpi it would look fine: we've never noticed blurry text while printing, and no one complained about it before so I just kept doing that.

I DID for some reason mostly make the warden character sheet in InDesign: when I check that sheet I can select text on the PDF (mostly: the ability score and combat sections are images). Good news is I can use that as a template and hopefully upload new sheets fairly quickly!

Sorry about that. I'll try to get that fixed asap!

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
