    Alignment: As cleric, but a sacred assassin can only be one step away from their deity towards law, chaos or evil, not good.
    Hit Die: 1d8

    Class Skills:
    The sacred assassin’s class skills (and the key ability for each skill) are Balance (Dex), Bluff (Cha), Climb (Str), Craft (Int), Decipher Script (Int), Diplomacy (Cha), Disable Device (Int), Disguise (Cha), Escape Artist (Dex), Forgery (Int), Gather Information (Cha), Hide (Dex), Intimidate (Cha), Jump (Str), Knowledge (Religion) (Int), Listen (Wis), Move Silently (Dex), Open Lock (Dex), Search (Int), Sense Motive (Wis), Sleight of Hand (Dex), Spot (Wis), Swim (Str), Tumble (Dex), Use Magic Device (Cha), and Use Rope (Dex).
    Skill Points at 1st Level: (6 + Int modifier) Χ 4
    Skill Points at Each Additional Level: 6 + Int modifier

    Weapon and armour proficiency:
    Sacred assassins are proficient with all simple weapons, with all types of light and medium armour, and with no type of shield. Even if they don't choose the war domain, they are proficient in their deity's favoured weapon.

    Spells
    A sacred assassin casts spells just like a cleric does, except that the sacred assassin uses the sacred assassin spell list, only has one domain, and will be unable to cast all of the spells from that domain. Sacred assassins can always take the death or trickery domain even if their deity doesn't grant it.

    Channel Energy
    Sacred assassins are sometimes hunters of the dead, but more often equally hunters of the living. They must choose either the turn undead ability of the cleric or the deadly touch ability of the paladin of slaughter, irrespective of the sacred assassin's actual alignment. If the latter is chosen, it works as lay on hands against undead, so it harms (or, for constructs, does nothing to) all creatures.

    Sneak Attack (Ex)
    This is exactly like the rogue ability of the same name. The extra damage dealt increases by +1d6 every third level after second(5th, 8th, 11th, 14th, 17th, and 20th). If a sacred assassin gets a sneak attack bonus from another source the bonuses on damage stack.

    Evasion, Uncanny Dodge, Improved Uncanny Dodge, Hide in Plain Sight
    These are exactly like the assassin abilities of the same name.

    Spell Sneak Attack
    From 7th level, whenever the sacred assassin hits with a touch attack spell, if the attack would be eligible to be a sneak attack, the sneak attack damage is added on even if the target is immune to sneak attacks. For example, a seventh-level sacred assassin who casts cure moderate wounds on a skeleton deals 2d8+2d6+7 damage to it.

    Death Attack
    This ability works like the assassin ability of the same name, except that the study time is reduced by 1 round at 16th level and one more round at 19th level.

    Death Mission
    At 20th level, the sacred assassin can declare a death mission once per day. The death mission lasts for 5 minutes. During this time, the sacred assassin gains a +20 bonus to all rolls, but cannot cast any spells. This doesn't remove the effect of any spells the sacred assassin has active, though.

    Sacred Assassin Spell List

    Sacred assassins choose their spells from the following list:

    Nice and elegant.
    One question. Why mass cat's grace and mass fox's cunning on one hand and no break enchantment on the other? The latter seems a lot more valuable at not letting things get in the way of completing your mission.

    Mainly because I based it on the assassin spell list and then just added things. I put break enchantment on there, though.

    It's very solid but I wonder if there's a way to integrate Domains or something like them to reflect different deities and add some variation in spell options.

    Well, Sacred Assasins can take a domain granted by their deity (and can also take death or trickery if they don't like any of the ones their deity grants).

    Ah, it's buried in the spell section, but I see it now. That certainly helps clarify matters.

    Neat !

    Some questions : why not put Knowledge (local) into the list of class skills ? It seems a staple of the assassin-type class.
    Why Cloudkill at 5th level ? It doesn't really thematically fit in, and you didn't put any of the weaker versions in the list of spell known, Solid Fog, Fog Cloud, etc. As such, it feels bit tacked on.

    I like your capstone, it gives 1/day some relevance to pure melee characters at those high levels, and th rest of the time you're not a pure melee character :)
