Rogues are by nature gamblers, people who bet everything on chances that they can’t control. Whether a rogue is crouched in an alcove hoping a guard won’t glance in while passing by or setting a fuse with just enough time to sprint through a hallway, dive through a window, and land in a moat, there is always an extra variable that no rogue can control. The abilities of the Esoterica Radica let you stretch your circumstances just far enough to get past that extra variable and make a quick getaway if you still can’t win.
