It's not all backstabbing, searching for traps, and picking locks. There's also staying out of the line of fire and making sure you're first to the loot. The Complete Rogue Chronicle tells the story of your greatest escapes, and all the loot you pilfered. Keep it secret, keep it safe.
A 3 part book:
Part 1: A 20-25 page character sheet with enough room to really map out every facet of your character.
Part 2: All the rules from the Player's Guide and Advanced Player's Guide for this class, and only this class. Includes spell, feats, and original B&G content.
Part 3: A big journal full of original art and a fold out page for you to build your keep/temple/tree fort/thieves guild etc.
All in a vegan leather cover with book ribbons and lay-flat binding. This is a sturdy book that will survive longer than your character will.
AND, includes a dry erase pull-out board for keeping track of things like spell slots, hit points, and inspiration.
