So someone, that doesn't consider your rogue as a threat (for example because he is unarmed (except the hidden dagger of course)). Win an opposed Communication (Deception) vs. Perception (Empathy) test, if it is questionable.

Journeyman: The stunt Lethal Blow costs 4 stunt points instead of 5.
Master: The rogue may add his/her cunning score to the damage roll.

This is good. I was toying with a similar concept myself, but having Cunning replace Strength instead of adding. I think at the Master level of a talent adding is appropriate. I'm still undecided as to whether or not rogues do enough damage overall. They are hard to hit, but very squishy.

Sorry, what? The rogue is the only class that can start with contacts.

Warriors can, too, but then they'd have to sacrifice armor or weapons. And an assassin's poisoned backstab is nasty.

Let is not forget scouting either, which no other class can get.
