Six Thieves for Pits & Perils

In my previous posts I created fighters and clerics for Pits & Perils. In this post I will create thieves. Note that all thieves have dexterity plus whatever stat they roll. So the Dexterity thief will have double dexterity. I will roll a random background for each one, re-rolling or choosing if I get the same background twice. Starting gold will be 40gp like the other characters.

Note that I use all the optional rules for thieves from both Fear Fires Foes and Infernal Realms. In this way I can vary their weapons a bit more.  By the standard rules they use only daggers.

I preferred to make shorter backgrounds for these characters. Sometimes it’s better to keep it simple and expand as you play the game.
