"Same assassin name, whole new feel" - Morgan Grover

Murderous whispers heard in the dead of night, a poisoned arrow fired upon it's target through the busy streets of the city, a dark figure that seems to emerge from the shadows behind it's prey, the unannounced guest that slips poison into his host's wine, and the warrior who uses deception to deal death blows upon his enemies. These are the many faces of the assassin. Within the pages of this book you will find:

  • Five new prestige classes for assassins covering mastery in the different assassin styles.
  • New feats designed for assassin characters.
  • New assassin and shadowblade spells.
  • New paths: Class combinations that outline career paths for assassin characters to take.
  • Four detailed assassin guilds.
  • New equipment, weapons, and armor for assassin characters.
  • Assassin-specific magical items.
  • Assassin Styles: techniques assassins can learn without taking levels in additional prestige classes.
  • Guidelines for compensating assassin characters who complete jobs.

I make it a point to read up on assassins and frankly, this beats quite a lot of published stuff. The PDF starts with 4 prestige classes. While not something I really like, the Shadowblade and Shadowstalker comes close. Each of the four sort of [...]

It is really cool, well worth the price! I just can't wait until my character qualifies for the two Assassin prestige classes that I have in store for him, the Shadowstalker and the Sniper (a very cool combination, that added to his being a cros [...]

An excellent resource, really. I would have given it a 5, but that rating is used too cheaply in reviews here, so I'll give it a four. Some things that I liked: The prestige classes are very modular- one focusses on disguise and deception, and [...]

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
