After much thought, my kobold rogue is putting her third level into Sorcery rather than into a third level of rogue. She now possesses Wild Magic, which she is using almost entirely for illusions.
There are lots of attack spells I passed up. She's not a pacifist or anything, she's just... I dunno. Illusions feel right for someone who prefers to present herself as a musician.
Next level she'll probably become a Swashbuckling Rogue.
@egypturnash A classic, if you have an illusion-making cantrip: The Chair That Isn't There. I mean it won't win a fight, but...
@Eyeless I do. I am remembering this one. It is terrible. Thank you.
The audio version of Minor Illusion is quite potent with clever use - you can keep it running in the background with no concentration required, and subsequently make any sounds you want with no spellcasting-y actions to give it away. Think of all the situations where hearing a certain sound can cause someone to greatly divert their attention - distant shouting and fighting to distract a town guard, a wooden bridge or icy lake creaking and snapping as a foe starts to cross it, the classic "swarm of bees right behind you"...
And of course, if you're a musician, you always have a backup band with you. Such a valuable cantrip!
