Assassin is a core class focused on stealth, trickery, and (of course) assassination.

From the Rulebook

Note: This version is outdated, for the current V8 version see here: Assassin

Assassins were once so powerful in the Middle East that Hulagu Khan had to storm their mountain fortress when they demanded tribute. Renaissance Italy and its setting of political intrigue made the courtly killing an art form. More known for the deadly ninjas of Japan as they stealthly raided the castles of Shoguns and assassinated them with ease.
