Before I start coming up with some dungeons for my barbarians of Grond to start pillaging, I’m going to revisit CT: Book 4 Citizens of the Imperium and see what I can do to create a Rogue character class.

Ok, so back to page 8 in book 4; enlistment is as described. However the benefits table is going to need some work. So, my idea is to change it to:-
1 +1 Dexterity
2 +1 Social Standing
3 Bow Weapon
4 Blade Weapon
5 Lock Pick Set (+1 DM to rolls for opening doors/gates)
6 Blade and Bow Weapons
Cash Benefits Table (in Grond currency)
Automatic Skills – Streetwise-1 remains the same
Personal Development Table – I suggest keep this the same as listing on page 9 of book 4.
Service Skills Table
Change ‘Demolition’ to ‘Interrogation’ skill.
Change ‘Vehicle’ to ‘Riding’ skill.
Riding skill definition – persons with this skill are proficient in riding beasts of burden such as horses, camels or mules.
Advanced Education Table
Change ‘Ship Tactics’ to ‘Tactics’ skill.
Change Computer to Water Craft – the definition being, choose from either operating small boat, or ship hand.
