The time has finally come. I have been wanting to make this build for YEARS and the opportunity has finally arrived. I'm starting hell's rebels!
Now, I have been saving this reddit post for just this occasion. But I am quite unsure about in what order exactly i would need to make the build. I thought it would be funny to squeeze counterfeit mage in there as well.
Am I correct in assuming I won't need agile maneuvers if i'm using SoH for my steal checks?
I feel like something like this would be good:
Halfling Filcher/Counterfeit Mage rogue STR: 7 DEX: 18 CON: 12 INT: 14 WIS: 12 CHA: 14
traits:Criminal, Stealthy escape, (possibility of a drawback then maybe fates favored)
1 Dirty fighting
2 Fast fingers
3 Posessed hand
4 Bonus: Improved steal
5 Skill focus: SoH
6 Minor magic
8 Major magic, Bonus: Greater steal
9 Quick steal
I really want to keep Well-prepared in there and I might try to fit space for the "Hand" feats from the Haunted Heroes Handbook. Gloom magic sounds fun as well. As does perhaps having piranha strike for damage when I'm fighting people I can't steal from.
I also just realized I might just need the weapon trick feat to be able to do more than one steal per round. although only getting quick steal at lvl 9 does sound a little lame but I still think the filcher is better than the sharper because I don't have to worry about my CMB.
I feel like incorporating the gnome pincher in here somewhere would be hilarious as well.
So, what do you guys think? Any advice? How do I become the master thief?
