Silent Warrior (Fighter/Rogue)

Stealth and attacking from the shadows tends to be the purview of rogues and assassins. However, there are highly skilled warriors that strive for a level of cunning and guile that only a rogue can teach them. These silent warriors seek training among the thieving guilds of the underworld, learning the path of the shadow, and fusing these newly obtained skills with those of his martial training. By combining stealth with weapon and armor expertise, the silent warrior can vanish into the darkness and strike from the shadows, stand toe-to-toe with a formidable foe, or quietly infiltrate enemy lines and destroy them from within.
