The Assassin: Epic TierD&D Insider Article
A D&D Insider Exclusive!
By Mike Mearls

As an assassin gains more power, the Shadowfell’s draw on her soul becomes ever stronger. In exchange, she gains access to greater and great manipulations of shadow. Few can find an epic assassin unless she wants to be found, but few would want to. This article is a continuation of the new assassin class, exclusive to D&D Insider. It contains assassin powers for both the Night Stalker and Bleak Disciple builds, through the epic tier of play, along with a new epic destiny for the assassin.

You were sent by the Raven Queen to slay a great threat to the cosmos, one that could unravel the very foundation of the planes. Though the Raven Queen is the mistress of death, she is usually content to allow each creature to find its death as its fate decrees. When death and misery spread on too wide a scale against the natural order, to the point when all life is threatened, a Perfect Slayer arises at her command.
