White Box Rogues for Swords & Wizardry: White Box

Stellagama Publishing proudly presents: White Box Rogues!

Gold glitters in the coffers of noblemen and in the hoards of dragons. Vast riches exchange hands in the bazaars of the city. Gems of untold value adorn the dead lying in their crypts. All of these, and more, call for the cunning merchant, or even the mighty swordsman, to take them by mercantile or martial prowess. They also call to the cutpurse, the burglar, the footpad – in short, their glitter summons the thief from the shadows, to lay their grubby hands on such fabulous treasures and take them, usually with their owners none the wiser. Similarly, the intrigues of nobles often devolve into cloak and dagger affairs, with emphasis on the dagger and the poison dart; into this world of conspiracy and deceit, steps the assassin, perhaps held on retainer by some corrupt noble to fell their rivals, or perhaps a murderer for hire.

Myth and legend, as well as more modern fantasy literature and even contemporary film and digital media, include – side by side with knights, wizards, and holy men – also thieves, rogues, and assassins. From Hermes the god of thieves (among other things) to the Merry Men who stole from the rich and gave to the poor, from a Halfling hired to burgle a dragon's den to a lone, cynical urban master-thief caught in schemes of ancient gods – the life of such criminals is a life of adventure, danger, and a potential to gain wealth beyond the lout's wild dreams. This product caters to this mythical and fantastic archetype by presenting an Assassin class and a Thief class to the Sword & Wizardry: White Box™ game, with additional expanded and clarified rules for stealth and for trafficking on the Black Market, as well as some of the tools of the trade of such outlaws and scoundrels.

The supplement includes:
- Expanded and clarified stealth and loot-fencing rules
- Assassin character class
- Thief character class
- New weapons fit for rogues!

Fully compatible with Swords and Wizardry™: White Box, and highly compatible with a wide range of older-school games.
