An Assassin can make a special attack with a melee weapon against a target that doesn't know about the Assassin. The attack has the additional effect of possibly either paralyzing or killing the target (Assassin's choice). Death Attack is a full-round action. The Death Attack fails if the target detects the Assassin or recognizes the Assassin as an enemy. If the victim of such a death attack fails a Fortitude Save (DC 10 + the Assassin's class level + the assassin's Int modifier) against the kill effect, they die. If the saving throw fails against the paralysis effect, the victim is rendered helpless and unable to act foir 1d6 rounds plus 1 round per level of the Assassin. If the victim's saving throw succeeds, the attack is just a normal attack.
At 10th level, the death attack becomes a Standard Action.
