I don't think this needs to be a group at all. Thieves and assassins are all in one class, and the Bard is definitely an "other," so what even is the group? They should just have Warrior, Priest, Mage, and Other.

Im with the categorization skeptics here. What does classifying classes add to the game?

The role of "skill monkey" should be achievable through feats - not just class - if a PC wants to invest is this. The skill monkey in my current party is the Wizard - with his super high knowledge checks and rituals.

I must say I'm not that put out by Trickster. I far prefer it to expert, which is too modern and mundane sounding. Might as well call it accountant or computer programmer, and specialist is what I call my proctologist. At least trickster has a bit of fantasy feel to it. If I had to choose, I might go with Explorer. I liked Adventurer, but that name too easily applies to the whole party, and has been used over the years quite a bit to describe parties of PCs.

Speaking of the Rogue...I found one of my players accidentally fell into what looked like a pretty overpowered combination. He's a half-elf rogue (so advantage on perception checks), with skill proficiency and expertise in perception, and he happens to have a decent wisdom.

So +2 (ability) +2 (proficient) +5 (expert) = +9, with advantage every time.

He's just not missing anything. Nothing is able to hide, and no trap goes unspotted.

In fact, the whole rogue seems really powerful at low levels, with essentially spring attack at second level, sneak attack pretty much every round (it's really easy to get), dex to attack and damage with ranged weapons, he's just a mad damage dealing machine who cannot be caught.

Do what classic Traveller did - call them "Other".

In fact why not call them travellers? Rogues, rangers, and bards are travellers. (And they still fight so fighters can still travel).

Warrior, Mage, Priest, and Traveller. It does have a certain ring to it, don't you think?

Heck, the pillar is called Exploration... you could easily call them Explorers as well. Traveler, Explorer, Pioneer, Wayfarer. All applicable.
