What?: Rogues get simple weapon proficiency.

Why?: Rogues get pretty much every simple weapon at their disposal, save for the sickle and spear. I feel that fits weirdly, both thematically and mechanically. I can't imagine giving them the starting feat would upset any careful balance. Especially since you can just take Martial Weapon Proficiency and skip having to take Simple Weapon Proficiency.

With their only good two hander taken from them (quarterstaff) , I think even at a balance point of view it would solve a problem.

So, it's worth mentioning; rogues do get quarterstaff under rogue proficiency. The downside is that quarterstaff is considered a double weapon, so, you can't get a STR/half weapon, or a sickle to have a cool sickle weirdo aesthetic.
