The Assassins Guild, also known as The Deathstalkers, is made up of remnants of House Dimir, The Nighthawks, and various other shady organisations.
They exist to protect their members from the law, the citizenry, and rival criminals. No-one knows where they are based nor how many members there are, at least not anyone who is going to tell you. In recent years, it has been rumoured they are followers of Bhaal, the Lord of Murder.
Contacting them is a secret known to only a few, but it is rumoured that if you go to the temple of bhaal and leave a note as well as a satchel containing something worth 100gp, then if you are lucky a representative will find you within 7 days. Though other rumours suggest you need to go to other temples, who’s god has death in their portfolio.
One thing that is common knowledge though, is that to assassinate someone without their permission will always result in you receiving a visit sooner or later.

Members must keep all details of the guild secret from non-members. They must avoid killing anyone the guild has declared off limits (usually because they pose too great a risk of drawing attention). A member is not required to take every job the guild asks her to perform, but she should have a good reason for refusing. She must obtain guild permission before undertaking any large criminal endeavour. Finally, she must pay to the guild 15% of all profits made from criminal activities, on top of her monthly dues.
Recruit – The guild provides access to the black market and stolen goods. A member can obtain many goods for a discount, in any city where the guild maintains a presence. See the Guild store for more information. To obtain this rank you must pay the membership fee and assassinate a specific target (of CR5).
