Rogue Starting Points

Hi everyone, I played Angband a few years back and am getting back into it. I'm just wondering what a good starting point layout for a kobold rogue might be and some of the rationale for why.

Thanks!

Use point based allocation during the @ birth. Maybe trade a point of Dex for a point of Str, if you want, but the point based allocation is designed to start you at a good place based on the @ race/class you've chosen.

It depends on if you want to dive or not. If not, allocate STR/DEX get max blows, with extra point on STR (your weak point.). If you want to dive, allocate a few points to CON, and any left over to INT. You'll have lousy spellcasting for a long time in any case, but there isn't a big call for this until DL 30+. (And In 4.1.3, there is never a big call for spellcasting--in the latest version, the useful rogue spells are almost all utility spells, not combat or defensive spells.)
