    Default Good sayings for a rogue

    obvious themesteal

    ranging from: "I haven't seen such filth since mary-beth started hooking" to "yes, these kind of pillars can be traced back to the old dwarven Thunderhead clan who first started experimenting with this specific supportsystem."

    "Why are you all looking at me like that? Honestly, I had nothing to do with it!"
    "What does it matter where the information came from? It gets the job done, right."
    "Why does everyone assume I stole their things? I stole half of those things for you in the first place!"

    Chump Party Member: "Something's not right here..."
    Rogue: "Of course something's not right here. If everything were all right, I'd be in jail and you wouldn't need a friend who picks locks."


    ... Appropriately, most of those would require Bluff checks unless used sarcastically. Honestly, though, Rogues are probably the most diversely interested class in the game after Fighters and Clerics (I count them as moreso than Factotums, who are really a whole bunch of people who individually have very diffuse areas of interest but are largely similar to each other). You could be anything from a petty thief to a spy to a sneaky Jerk With a Heart of Gold to a secretly evil assassin paid to infiltrate the party to an Indiana Jones-style explorer. It's not like Paladins, who have a set area of interest and moral code. There's only a very few things we can say that would work for even a decently large minority of potential Rogues.

    "Spies are not trained to fight fair. Spies are trained to win."

    "Corporations need spies just like governments do. Or course, they’re not called “spies,” they’re called security consultants. What they really are of course, is mercenaries."

    "Guns make you stupid, but duct tape makes you smart."

    "You can’t choose your intelligence sources. Might be a heroin smuggler, a dictator, or your mom. You go where the information is."

    "All right, the key to fighting a group is taking out its leader. Take out its leader- oh, they’ll all leave you alone. It’s bully psychology. Works with third-world military units as well."

    All from Burn Notice's great Michael Weston.

    The great state of denial

    Default Re: Good sayings for a rogue

    Ironically, my rogue is also my paladin (odd build), so here's some of his more rogueish moments.

    *shoots bad guy in the hand* "Hey jackass, nice catch."

    "(talking to trickery devotion simulacrum of himself) Those traps are awfully tricky. I'm not sure I got them all. And I'm far too pretty to die, so you can go first."
    "No way. They say beauty is fleeting, and I'll be around for a far more fleeting moment than you. You go."
    (other character: "This is retarded."

    "I only pinched his pocket because I saw him pinch hers!"
    "No, you only pinched his pocket because she's attractive and seems like the type to appreciate your company. Otherwise you wouldn't have also taken enough for a dinner for two at that fancy place."
    "You hurt me sir!"
    "Did you get her adress?"
    "Pickin' her up at 7. And even if she were ugly, I am supposed to uphold the laws and get her wallet back. It just might be by mail instead of in person."
    "You're a horrible paladin."
    "But an excellent rogue."

    Me: "Excuse me ma'am, I know this may sound a little rude, but your sword told me to take it from you."
    Brass Dragon: "What are you, schizo or something?"
    Me: "Sometimes I wish I were. It would explain these horrible other personalities that keep whispering in my ear." (trickery simulacrum appears.)
    Sim: "I say we kill her and take all of her stuff!"
    Me: "No! We musn't! That would be wrong!"
    Sim imitating sword: "Doooooo iiiiiiiiiiiit."
    Me: "Not you too!"
    Brass Dragon: "OK you can have it if you'll go away."
    Me: I'd get the paladin to help, but we might end up with a kid that believes in fairy tales.
    DM: aye, and it's not like she's been saved by a mysterious little girl and a band of real live puppets from a bad man and worse step-sister to go live with the faries in the happy land.
    Me: Yeah, a knight in shining armour might just bring her over the edge.

    "Don't look at me, look at the distraction!"

    "OH LOOk, A DISTRACTION!!"

    "To be a rogue, you must be delicate. You must have a delicate step, lest you walk loudly. You must have a delicate touch, lest you break your lockpick. And you must have delicate aim, lest you miss the aorta and leave them alive long enough to scream."

    I play rogues as spies who waltz through buildings like they belong.

    "Hello fellow guard, It's time to change shifts. I'm here to relieve you."

    "There's been a break in! They need your help at [distraction]!"

    "I'm an emissary from [place], here to see [important person]"

    "Oh, this plate? You would not want it, it is too expensive. Look at these exquisite designs by [Famed artist]. I bring these all the way from [place] and was planning to sell them to [your rival]. I am sure you would not want them."


    At this point, I'm just going to quote Thank you for Smoking.
    Joey Naylor: Dad, why is American government the best government?
    Nick Naylor: Because of our endless appeal system.

    "My job requires a certain... moral flexibility."

    Nick Naylor: My point is that you have to think for yourself. If your parents told you that chocolate was dangerous would you take their word for it?
    [Children say no]
    Nick Naylor: Exactly! So perhaps instead of acting like sheep when it comes to cigarettes you should find out for yourself.

    "The key is to be light. Light heart, light smile, light step, light touch, light fingers."

    "Property? No, no, you've got it all wrong, see. People don't own things. They just hold on to them until I drop by to pick them up."

    "You don't want to mess with me. See, watch what I can do with this dagger." *flips it up in the air, stabs with the other one*. "Oh, sorry, guess you weren't watching the right one. Care to try again?" *catches first dagger, stabs again* "Ooh, got it wrong that time too. Third time lucky?"

    Can't believe no one's said this:

    "It's only illegal if you get caught."

    EDIT: Another quote I improv'd for a game

    "You sought to harm me. For that, I took away your eye.

    Know this: Speak of what has happened here to anyone, and I will take away everything else. I will take away your family. I will take away your friends. I will take away your pets, your allies, every single thing you hold dear to your heart.

    I will take away your body. I will take away your mind. And then, I will take away your life. I'm a thief. I can do that."

    Isn't the First Rule "Once you have their money, you never give it back."? Most rules do make good rogue sayings, though.
