Really? In my circle it feels like so many people pick rogues over bard.
I haven't seen many bards in a long while, even in LARP.
I think if you're gonna keep tabaxi though, I'd definitely go more towards rogue either way.
You get a lot more bang for your buck with a rogue who has dark vision, climbing speed, and movement boosts.
Also, rogue definitely fits in with tabaxi as they have weird "item" obsessions that you have to roll for. lol Cats are basically rogues to begin with.
Yeaaaaah figuring out the character basics is always the difficult part.
I swear every time trying to figure out who the character is and how they act it takes forever.
That's why I tend to keep all my old characters for future use.
