Master assassin is a type of monster in ADOM. They are quite rare opponents that start to appear in the mid-game, which have poisonous attacks. Ironically, by the time the PC is likely to meet them, the 'masters of assassination' are usually a lot less likely to take the PC's life than many other monsters of a similar danger level.

Special abilities[]

Poisonous melee attack

Common stats[]

Level: 1, DV: 22, PV: 6, Hits: 30, Attacks: 2, Damage: 7-19. Speed: 110.

Corpse effects[]

Eating humans makes PCs other than trolls or orcs "feel uneasy", though they do not suffer any ill effects. Rather than eating them, PCs can turn in dead master assassins to Tywat Pare for 500 gp each.

Monster memory[]

This black-garbed villain glares at you from under his cloak. An expert killer, skillful in the use of poisons, the master assassin is prepared to take lives at the whim of the moment, always calm, always precise. His quick movements and dark garb make it difficult to follow his movements... was that a dagger in his hand or just a freak reflection of light?
