Unofficial rules compendium

A crafty sorcerer is less attuned to his supernatural origin and more attuned to the world. She is often an artistic craftsman whose magic manifests as a part of her craft. A crafty sorcerer attracts much less attention than a regular sorcerer and can often hide their unusual nature, but might be cast out if discovered. They often cling to seeming normality and try to live normal lives and hide their magic. This constant masquerade makes them develop skills and abilities similar to rogues, with magical intuition replacing the rogue's trained senses. Just like rogues, many crafty sorcerers never delve into dungeons or dodge traps, at least not until the comfortable life they built for themselves collapses.
