Assassins, Handlers, and Rogues
Article written by Kranar Drogin
A Rogue is normally someone that can be a thief, a troubleshooter, jack-of-all-trades, or a scout. Usually a thief would be found in a city, rather than in the rural areas where there aren't as much items to take from an individual, and scouts can be found in inns to be hired out or in a large war band or army.
An Assassin is a high-trained killer that can make a very good living at doing this trade. Most assassins come from the lands such as Khur, Estwilde, Lemish, Neraka, and Northern Ergoth. They were used a lot during the War of the Lance in the employment of the Dragonarmies or other dangerous guilds.
A Handler is a Kender term for what other races term a thief. Usually though, a kender handler will leave behind an item as much as taking an item. The kender also are set in the fact that they will return the item eventually to the owner, but usually get distracted before that can happen. Usually a handler will use such excuses as 'You must have dropped it.' or 'I was just holding it for you.' as a few examples.
