Re: Making an assassin
Ranger 10/Bloodhound 10//Beguiler 20 would be my choice.
Use the Complete Mage's "Favored Enemy--Arcanist" option.
Swordsage 20//Cloistered Cleric 5/Church Inquisitor/Contemplative 10
Use the PHB2's "Spontaneous Domain Casting" variant.
Get domains like Trickery, Travel, Darkness and Celerity.
Archivist 20//Factotum 20
This is pretty straightforward: Focus on Intelligence with Wisdom and Dexterity as secondary abilities. For feats, grab 6 Fonts of Inspiration (31 IP), Extend Spell, Knowledge Devotion, Quicken Spell and Persistant Spell.
Warblade 10/Swiftblade 10//Beguiler 14/Factotum 6
(levels arranged for 20/20 Beguiler casting and for maximum Maneuver levels).
*I'm not a fan of overly elaborate builds unless I get to play the character through their development (it tends to make DMs suspicious). I'm sure that all of these could PrC a few more times and become marginally more powerful, but I'd rather avoid that.
