This Scion of royal heritage threw her family's ambitions away when she decided that stabbing was her true destiny.


Overview

Silent swift steps, quicker crouch-walking and a higher tolerance for heights permit Assassins to approach from above, below, and indeed, from right behind with nary a whisper to betray their movements. The slightly less silent yet still significantly swift Stiletto delivers crippling backstabs from behind, but if a target should have the foresight to turn around before the killing stroke, it comes paired with a Parrying Dagger to repel medium-sized weapons.

The compact crossbow pistol projects all-wood bolts over medium distances, keeping you relevant even when in plain sight, and helps distract your enemies from your scattered caltrops which, when inevitably stepped on, will ensnare them for your teammates to close in and finish off, with you nowhere to be seen and long since gone...

Editor's note: The higher tolerance for fall damage never made it into the live game. Darn.

Trivia

  • A wordier description of the Assassin:

Most comfortable in shady alleys, gloomy dungeons and dark castle halls, the Assassin strongly prefers not to be seen. Really, don’t look at her. She hates it and she’ll cut you.

In service to the Earl of Bamburgh as spymaster, at court and abroad she schemes, plots, spies, blackmails, steals, embezzles and kills to further the noble goals of her good Lord’s house. Operating from out of sight, she knows precisely when to use her natural guile to remain unseen and when to brutally eviscerate all who oppose her.

Intrigue, evasion, deceit and cunning are the core of her devious toolkit. She’s not above dirty tactics to trick and outmaneuver her opponents – some people might say that makes her dishonorable, but those idiots are as dull as rusted iron. To them, her methods make her a lying, cheating, sinful, poisonous, backstabbing no-good cowardly murderer.

To her, that’s just another day at work.

  • The Assassin is not only the Earl of Bamburgh's spymaster, but also his daughter, according to rumor.
