[Dungeons & Dragons] Discworld Classes 2 – Covert

One of the Patrician’s greatest contributions to the reliable operation of Ankh-Morpork had been, very early in his administration, the legalising of the an­cient Guild of Thieves. Crime was always with us, he reasoned, and therefore, if you were going to have crime, it at least should be organised crime.

-Terry Pratchett, Guards! Guards!


Thieves
technically basic thieves/rogues as can be found in the rulebooks. Thieves in the area of Ankh-Morpork and the surrounding planes have a special status: the Thieves’ Guild in Ankh-Morpork is a fully acknowledged guild in their own right, with it’s licensed members having a quota and a receipt system in place. A practice that seems to have spilled out to other places as well. Unlicensed thieves encounter harsh penalties though. Not from the local law who often co two could care less, but from their fellow thieves.
As in rules.

Assassins
an old and noble profession. There are various variants all over the discworld, but the most renowned and famous school for this vocation is the School of Assassins of the Ankh-Morpork Assassin’s Guild, one of the most renowned institutes of learning in the Discworld. Anybody “inhumed” by a guild member of the guild can be sure that his inhumer was of equal, if not higher social status than him. Many people attend this school even if they never have the intention to become professional killers, as the education there is just that good. Many noblemen, citizens, aristocrats, but also bureaucrats have this class (e.g. The Patrician).
As in AD&D rules.
