One character type I have never played is a 1st Edition Assassin.
Now that we have a better analysis of how the “Assassination Table” is supposed to work (or at least how EGG used it) (can attempt during a regular combat, as long as have surprise; not just for a plotted out in advance scenario), I wonder if it would be any better than a Thief attempting backstab or not. Get to use disguise ability, which could be amusing I suppose. Also the risk of using poison, as you might accidentally poison yourself; dare to use it or not?
If I was to try an Assassin, might as well make it a Half-Orc Cleric / Assassin. Think I’ve only ever played a Half-Orc one time ever before.
