Rogue from Ultima IX manual
First appearance: Ultima IV
Last appearance: Ultima IX

Rogue is really just a somewhat more romantic-styled name given to thieves, or any other hardened scoundrels who attempt to relieve others of their hard-earned goods or coins. Use of the term "rogue" also marks the start of the Age of Enlightenment, wherein the Thieves' Guild was first banished from the newly-formed realm of Britannia.

The appearance of rogues in Ultima IV saw the thief vanish as a playable character class choice in the series.

Rogues can be found everywhere in and under Britannia. They are fond of ambushing camping adventuring parties.


The Rogues that are to be found throughout the land are often escaped prisoners who now make their livelihood as highwaymen by attacking travellers. If they get next to thee, they may pick thy pockets.
