I love assassins and use them in my game infrequently. Unfortunately, there are DM's out there that dont care for assasssins or the use of poisens. This fascinates me, really, for two reasons: 1) because adventurers are going out to assassinate perceived evil., and 2) poisens are just the poor mans magic, is it not? So, okay, i can blast them, electricute them, freeze them, burn them, etc, but poisening them is not allowed. Unbelievable, but i digress.

All this being said, i am glad the this game hasnt gone so pc-yet-to ignore the assassin class or the skill of assassination. While i'm on a rant, CE doesnt NOT equate to evil, stupid, or suicidal. If anything LG Paladins-if played right, should be the #1 cause of party break-ups, death, etc. Sure, they're great characters to play, but in my game, you WILL play them correctly.
