    Not to detract from the thread, but is this always the case? Some would say that having a force purely to take out trouble makers is a plus to society, even if the occasional innocent is caught in the crossfire. But then again it would take a very morally fluid person to allow an innocent to die just to let a few bad eggs get offed as well, but its an interesting point regardless.

    I see someone who specializes in assassination as having very flexible morality, they do especialize in a very dark craft in the first place, after all. Depending on the target they need to eliminate they'd sacrifice others for the greater good. For instance, most of my assassins would sacrifice everyone in Riverwood to destroy the Dark Brotherhood if it was absolutely required and they'd mourn the loss of the innocents that died but they'd never felt like they made the wrong choice, they would probably try to avoid such situations in the first place, though.

    Good point, assassins by nature aren't usually on the moral high ground, so a 'good' one would at the very least still be a little stabby from time to time.

    Wellll... I am very late for this post, but whatever I will comment, I have roleplay in the 3 main character archetypes, warrior-archer-mage, personally I don't have a lot of luck playing as a mage, I tend to die to much for my liking, so I prefer playing as a warrior or archer. Honestly archer, hunter like characters are my favorite, I love going around the wilderness of Skyrim using my knowledge of foraging and hunting, looking for different types of game from a fox to a bear, from a troll to a dragon... the hunt is always awesome, killing with stealth, positioning yourself in the right place to get the right angle for your arrow to reach your prey......I am the hunter and the world is my hunting ground. I tend to also play the assassin type because of this, because at the end of it I am still the hunter, but with a different type of prey. I tend to favour turning into a werewolf, been a avatar of Hircine and all that. My allaigment beign Chaotic Neutral allows me to have a very open mind to the different decisions I take. In the race aspect I tend to play the men races, mainly nord or breton, if I am going the assassin route I usually tend to be a Dummer for image it brings to the game.
