Of all the classic fantasy gaming archetypes we’ve tackled in our Classes of Legend series -- classes like the witch and the sphere priest -- the assassin is arguably the hardest to get right.
You wouldn’t think that it would be. It’s a pretty straightforward concept, after all. Killer for hire, with skills to match. But the fact is, there’s a reason that no single version of the class has met with truly widespread acceptance in the current edition of the game: Everyone’s got their own idea of what an assassin class should be. Is it a precision killer, striking from the shadows like the Japanese ninja? A murderer who wields blade and spell with equal faculty? A brutal thug slitting throats in a filthy alley?
How about all of the above? We at Lion’s Den are particularly proud to unveil Classes of Legend: The Assassin, our own take on this iconic killer.
