Making a Nuki Assasin
Assassins work as well with other classes, specifically the monk regarding his skill focus and martial mastery. It is very impressive seeing spellcasters as unhonourable and barbarians as crude brutes but still learning even from them.
Abilities: Dexterity is highly important for the Nuki Assassin as most of his class features are based off of it and helps with his low AC. Intelligence is also important because some of their class skills depend on it and it helps the Nuki Assassin to gain more skill points.
Races: Due to there size and bonus to their dexterity halflings often become Assassins. Humans, being as versatile as they are, are also very good category. However Nuki Assassins come from everywhere.
Starting Gold: 5d4x10
