Whispered

Prerequisite: Assassin

"There are few who speak my name above a whisper… those who do are either my friends, or my next victim."

As you ascend into the paragon tier your name has become known to many, and feared by all but the most mighty or foolish of mortals. You are a whisper of dread among the ignoble, a cold sweat to those who would exploit or terrorize the weak and the innocent. You have honed your craft of death to a keen edge, and you have come to terms with the grim fact that you are a weapon to fell the tyrants who threaten the peace. You have become a Whispered; a master assassin who is spoken of only in hushed tones. For the wicked and unrighteous you are a monster stalking the marches, but to the oppressed and downtrodden you are an avenging angel. How you walk that line is up to you…
