I think the gnome rogue makes a lot of sense. They're small, light and not *that* strong - being sneaky and cunning strikes me as a perfect way to compensate this. Dwarfy rogues are a little odd - they are traditionally honorable and good so the whole skulking thing doesn't really suit them.... ah wellRogues don't have to be all skull and daggers etc, they can just be artful fighters: think rapier wielding noble men - while yes they might not be at the top of the line of muggers they may just be deft of hand (and enjoy showing off by showing you your wallet). I'm sure you could even make a Sam Vimes (read Terry Pratchett) type character - ok he's human but he could work as a dwarf as well - a bit of a dirty fighter and apt to conceal himself when needed so maybe this could work as a dwarf... Actually I'm keeping that last one for myself...

A Sam Vimes type of character would be excellent, but be careful never to name him "Samvimes" or something like that. Instead, give him some other name and let people who know who that character is eventually see the parallels and say to you, "Hey, guess what! Your character reminds me of Sam Vimes!"A dwarf in WoW would certainly be appropriate for him. He would definitely be a Combat rogue rather than Assassination or Subtlety.

Well going into personal opinion, I see dwarf rogues playing out more as thugs from the looks of forlorn cavern. They have no need for stealth if you decide to walk right into them...

Keep in mind that dwarves can also be Hunters. So if one part of society is skilled at scouting and setting traps, surely another can be equally stealthy and skilled at disarming them.Plus, plenty of dwarf rogues may be craftsmen: locksmiths and such.
