GURPS Rogues, softback supplement for GURPS, by Lynette Cowper
“It Takes a Thief . . .
When brute force won’t get the job done, you need someone with . . . skills. A specialist. Preferably someone who doesn’t let a lot of nagging concerns about law or morality get in the way.
Whether you’re looking for just the right character to round out an adventuring party, or a dangerous NPC to challenge your players, GURPS Rogues has what you need – 29 different templates, letting you quickly create the scoundrel that’s right for the job.
Templates include . . .
- Thieves who are only in it for the money, such as the armed robber, cat burglar, pirate, pickpocket, housebreaker, and forger.
- Rogues who have other goals than mere material gain, like the spy, hacker, evil mastermind, mad scientist, and saboteur.
- Charmers who work more with people’s minds than with lockpicks and prybars . . . the con man, bard, fixer, gambler, prostitute, and street doctor.
- Mysterious figures who work on the shadowy edges of society – the tracker, poacher, assassin, master thief, smuggler, mobster, and black marketeer.
Each template comes with four complete characters, drawn from a wide range of settings. All told, you get 116 ready-to-use sample characters, as well as historical background and information on the technology and tactics that shaped their professions.”
