Introduction[edit]

Just a fun idea to throw around for a Rogue/Bard build

References[edit]

Core Rule Books

Game Rule Components[edit]

Items[edit]

Nothing particularly necessary. Some speed, keen kukris would be nice though

Progression[edit]

Race (Templates): Drow would be best but others would also work

Other Components[edit]

The "Spells Per Day" from the Arcane Trickster lvls can actually be used for either Bard or Assassin Spells depending on which way you want to take the character


Dude, how would you even qualify for shadowdancer, you don't have any of the feats needed?....

Highlights[edit]

He can pretty much always sneak attack between Hide in Plain Sight and Impromptu Sneak Attack

Limitations[edit]

Low Fort Save

DM Counters[edit]

Anything that is immune to crits or throws lots of Fort Save stuff my way
