The Darkstalker Files
The murderous assassin is a master of dealing death. No one is better at sneaking into a location, eliminating a target, and slipping out again. Obviously, a professional killer is not likely to have a lot of friends.
You probably wear dark colors—black, charcoal grey, or midnight blue—to help blend into the shadows. But since you’re also a master of disguise, in truth you could look like anyone.
Additional Equipment: You start with a disguise kit and three doses of a level 2 blade poison that inflicts 5 points of damage.
Minor Effect Suggestion: No one but the foe notices that you make the attack.
Major Effect Suggestion: If you have poison amid your belongings, you were able to apply it just before the strike, adding the poison’s e ects to the normal attack damage.
Surprise Attack. If you attack from a hidden vantage, with surprise, or before an opponent has acted, the difficulty of your attack is reduced by one step. On a successful hit with this surprise attack, you inflict 2 additional points of damage. Enabler.
Trained Assassin. You are trained in stealth and disguise tasks. Enabler.
Quick Death (2 Speed points). You know how to kill quickly. When you hit with a melee or ranged attack, you deal 4 additional points of damage. You can’t make this attack in two consecutive rounds. Action.
Poison Crafter. You are trained in crafting, sensing, identifying, and resisting poisons. Enabler.
Trained Infiltrator. You are trained in all interactions involving lies or trickery. Enabler.
Better Surprise Attack. When you use Surprise Attack, the di culty of your attack is reduced by two steps instead of one, and you deal 4 additional points of damage instead of 2. Enabler.
Slayer (5 Speed points). With a swift and sudden attack, you strike a foe in a vital spot. If the target is level 3 or lower, it is killed outright. Action.
Escape Plan. When you kill a foe, you can attempt a sneaking action to immediately hide from anyone around, assuming that a suitable hiding place is nearby. Enabler.
