Cerebral Assassin - Psion Prestige Class
This is a Psion Prestige class that may be applicable to the Forgotten Realms Campaign
The cerebral assassin has chosen a different path than most and embraces the power of psionic combat. Unlike some, they believe that true psionic mastery involves a complete understanding of the mind. Their devotion can at times seem fanatical. They are shunned by most psions and psychic warriors, and they are generally not found in areas with a significant population.
Some believe that a secret society comprised of cerebral assassins may have a stronghold on a demiplane that can be reached only via the Astral Plane. Rumors are that they carry out raids against illithid and gith cities and strongholds, killing all that they find there. Their ruthless aggression and lack of compassion has labeled them as a menace to good and evil alike.
Note: The cerebral assassin was created to take advantage of the feats provided in the "Battle of the Mind" article as well as well as the material from the "Alter Your Basic Psionic Combat" article.
