Thieves remain one of my favourite character classes. Proof once again that I’m not “old school enough” since I like a class who’s abilities could be all role-played for the truly old school.
Remember – if using these rules, all characters must have a subclass. If you really don’t want a subclass, petition the GM to let you take the focused subclass (Focused Fighter, etc), which provides no new abilities, but instead makes leveling up a bit faster.
