This perk tree is useful for a range of situations, from battle scenarios to negotiations. In terms of battle scenarios, you can choose to increase the speed of raids or increase the amount of loot that you gain per raid. You can also reduce the chances of being caught while sneaking in towns, allowing you to access restricted areas with less hassle. Perhaps the most useful perks from this tree are those which reduce the cost of bribes, eventually allowing you to bribe others without needing to pay anything. One of the best ways to level Roguery is selling captured prisoners at taverns or recruiting bandits into your army.

Note: Each of the perks listed under a specific level are mutually exclusive. If you invest in one at a particular level, you will never be able to invest in the other at that same level.

Roguery Perks:

Skill Level 25:

  • Raiding Party: +10% faster village raids
  • Eye for Loot: +5% loot from village raids

Skill Level 50:

  • Commanding Presence: Reduced relationship penalty after using intimidation

  • For the Thrill: +10% party morale from raiding villages

  • Scavenger: Increased loot from enemies

Skill Level 125:

  • Concealed Blade: Grants ability to use One-Handed weapons as a civilian
  • Slip Into Shadows: -20% chance of being caught while sneaking in towns

Skill Level 150:

  • Negotiator: -50% cost to bribes
  • Briber: Increased chance of a bribe option appearing during dialogue

Skill Level 175:

  • Camoflauge: -10% chance to alarm nearby enemy settlements

Skill Level 200:

  • Escape Artist: +30% faster while escaping captivity

Skill Level 225:

  • Bribe Master: -50% cost to bribes

Skill Level 250:

  • Slave Trader: +20% better deals with ransom broker

Skill Level 275:

  • Merry Men: Grants ability to recruit bandits to your party

Tip: In addition to selling prisoners, you can level skill in Roguery by engaging in negotiations with others and choosing to intimidate or bribe them. If you have negative relations with a settlement, infiltrating it will provide you with some Roguery experience. You can also raid caravans, but you should only do this with factions that you are at war with; raiding a neutral caravan will cause the kingdom it is associated with to declare war.
