The ninja class represents a special training program for adventurers who would otherwise have become rogues. It is available at a specific school outside of Methyndell called the Academy of the Black Lotus. While located within the borders of Merythion, it is one of the few places to which outsiders are allowed to travel freely. Those who join the Academy are trained for up to two years in the techniques of the ninja — assuming they survive the curriculum.
Party Role: The ninja's role is similar to the rogue's, but specializing more specifically in techniques of poisoning and assassination.
Restrictions: Anyone may become a ninja, but they must be trained at the Academy of the Black Lotus near Methyndell.
Consider the Ninja of the Crescent Moon prestige class published in Sword and Fist, p. 30-32.
