I need to create an assassin for game, but I've never built one for Pathfinder before. I could use some advice...or maybe a link to stats to one that has already been made.

Pathfinder Modern.

And before anyone says anything I am already aware of 3PP Pathfinder Modern attempts. I know Paizo would hit it out of the Park.

Cool. Green Ronin is great at producing quality content. Glad to hear that this book is getting as much attention to being as perfect as possible for its release.

Best mass-combat system for a fantasy RPG I've ever seen was in the BECMI edition of D&D (can't quite remember which set it was in). It's also in the Rules Cyclopedia, and the free Dark Dungeons retro-clone.
Thanks! Downloaded and ready to be read!

If you have any Q's about Dark Dungeons, be sure to do ask 'em here. You'll be able to get a response directly from the author.

Phoenix Bloodline
[Filler Text]
Class Skill: Perception
Bonus Spells: cure light wounds (3rd), cure moderate wounds (5th), cure serious wounds (7th), cure critical wounds (9th), neutralize poison (11th), restoration (13th), heal (15th), fire storm (17th), resurrection (19th).
Bonus Feats: x
Bloodline Arcana: Whenever you cast a spell that deals energy damage, you can change it so that it deals fire damage instead. This also changes the spell’s type and descriptor appropriately.
Bloodline Powers: In your quest for power you become more and more like the legendary Phoenix. You strive to fight against evil and injustice wherever you may encounter it.
Heart of the Hearth (Sp): Starting at 1st level, you are able to call forth the flame within and project a ball of flame at any foe within 30 feet as a ranged touch attack. This attack deals 1d6 points of damage +1 for every two sorcerer levels you possess. This damage is half divine and not subject to energy resistance or immunity and the other half is fire damage. You can use this ability a number of times per day equal to 3 + your Charisma modifier.
Perfection of the Pyre (Ex): At 3rd level you gain fire resist 5. At 9th level your resistance increases to 10. At 15 level your resistance increases to 15. At 20th level you gain immunity to fire.
Wings of Flame (Su): At 9th level, you are able to call forth a pair of flaming wings as a move action and can dismiss them as a free action. While manifested the wings grant you a fly speed of 60 feet and good maneuverability. You are able to use the wings for a number of minutes per day equal to your sorcerer level, but the duration does not need to be consecutive, and must be used in 1 minute increments.
Self-Healing (Su): At 15th level when you should be rendered unconscious by going into negative hit points you may use cure moderate wounds on yourself. You can use this ability once per day.
Undying Soul (Su): At 20th level you reach the climax in your evolution to be more like the phoenix; you gain immunity to petrification, damage reduction 10/evil, spell resistance equal to your sorcerer level +10 and unlimited use of your Wings of Flame ability.

So, thoughts? Also what feats what be appropriate to provide as bonus feat choices?

My idea is to create a base class amalgam using the class features of the Alienist & Green Star Adept (Complete Arcane, pages 21 & 41, respectively). You can swap out the features you don't want for the ideas listed above.

The so-called phrenic scourge is a walking nightmare, a writhing horror with an inhuman appearance and alien thought-patterns utterly incomprehensible to humans. They view other sentient creature as nothing more than slaves and breeding chambers, and they have assimilated entire communities in the distant wilds, and deep beneath the earth. They maintain order with their psionic abilities, turning even the most rebellious subjects into loyal thralls.

Even the race’s true name — the ochthichthuruch — is almost unpronounceable by humans. The phrenic scourge is made up entirely of thin tendrils, ranging in length from six inches to four feet, clustered around a tiny core that serves as the creature’s nerve center. They prefer to hold themselves upright, maintaining a vaguely humanoid shape through muscular control. Whether this is simply a cultural tradition on their part, or actually a physiological imperative, is unclear. Most scourges prefer to garb themselves in dark robes. With the hoods and sleeves pulled low, it’s possible for a scourge to briefly pass itself off as human, at least from a distance.

A phrenic scourge usually stands anywhere from 5 to 6 feet in height, though it’s capable of changing its overall dimensions. It weighs roughly three-quarters as much as a human of the same height. Phrenic scourges speak their own language, Common, and Undercommon, but they prefer to communicate telepathically. A phrenic scourge can communicate telepathically with any creature within 100 feet that has a language.

Combat
Phrenic scourges prefer to hang back out of melee, battering foes with their psionic abilities, or sending thralls to fight in their stead. When facing weaker or lone foes, however, they close and attempt to lash the victim with their tendrils, in hopes of implanting him with larvae and breeding a new scourge.

Compress (Ex): Although they normal stand as humanoid, phrenic scourges are not bound to that form. By shifting and relaxing their tendrils, they can thin themselves out, or flatten themselves into a mass of writhing limbs no thicker than a snake. As a full-round action, a phrenic scourge can pass through a space as narrow as two or three inches in one dimension, as long as it’s at least a foot or more in the other dimension. For instance, a scourge could fit through a hole that was two inches by 14 inches, but not one two inches by four inches.

Implant (Ex): The tips of a phrenic scourge’s tendrils constantly die and regrow, much like a human’s fingernails. In any round in which the scourge successfully strikes the same victim with both tendril attacks, the tip of a tendril breaks off in the flesh and begins to burrow, unless the victim succeeds on a DC 15 Fortitude save. The larva burrows through the host, following its nervous system until it reaches the brain. This takes 1d4+1 rounds, causing 2d4 points of damage per round. When the larvae reaches the brain, the subject dies instantly. At any point in this process, the larvae can be destroyed with remove disease or heal.This power does not function against constructs, elementals, oozes, plants, or undead, and is not instantly fatal to foes with multiple heads.

Note that any creature with natural regeneration or fast healing resists the effects of the implanted larva. The larva is not expelled, but neither can it proceed to the brain. It does continue to cause damage every round, however, as it tries to burrow (assuming the damage it causes exceeds the fast healing or regeneration, of course).This continues until the larva is destroyed, as above, or until 2d10+1 rounds have passed, at which point they die on their own.

Psionics (Sp): At will—charm monster (DC 17), deep slumber (DC 16), detect thoughts (DC 15), suggestion (DC 16), teleport. Effective caster level 9th. The save DCs are Intelligencebased, due to the scourge’s psionic nature.

Sap Will (Sp): This psionic attack manifests as a 20-ft.-radius sphere, which the scourge can center anywhere within 30 ft. (A common tactic is to center the ability on itself, as a scourge is immune to its own sap will ability.) Anyone caught in this sphere must succeed on a DC 18 Will save or lose the will to act for 3d4 rounds. They may defend themselves if attacked, but may not initiate any action. They lose any Dexterity-bonus to Armor Class. Phrenic scourges often use this power to take out groups of enemies at once, or to hunt for victims they can make into slaves or breeding chambers. This ability is the equivalent of a 4thlevel spell. The save DC is Intelligence-based.

Phrenic Scourge Society
Phrenic scourges do not form cities of their own race. Rather, they insinuate themselves into existing communities, both underground and on the surface. They begin by making the community’s leaders into thralls, and then spread out among the populace. More than a few communities have been conquered by the ochthichthuruch, without any outsiders the wiser. Once they have assimilated a community, the scourges often direct them to war against other communities, in hopes of expanding their territories.

In the center of any conquered community, the phrenic scourges maintain a literal stable of humanoids intended entirely for breeding purposes. The scourges mentally enslave every one of the community’s inhabitants, as soon as they exist in sufficient numbers to do so.

The ochthichthuruch’s breeding cycle is simple and invasive. The larvae formed by their tendril tips burrow through the host to the brain. The brain is instantly slain, and then slowly consumed as the larva grows. Once the brain is entirely digested, the growing scourge starts to feed on the rest of the host’s body.This entire process requires roughly a month; after this time, the (presumably rotting) body suddenly erupts with tendrils, bursting open. The new scourge crawls from the shattered body and stands upright, fully intelligent and in possession of all its racial abilities. Sages postulate that the scourges actually consume the memories and intelligence of the subject, as well as the physical aspects of the brain. Because their thought processes are so alien, the scourge cannot access the victim’s specific memories, such as identity or class abilities, but it does obtain general knowledge, such as the basic facts of the world. This allows the young scourge to function until it first makes telepathic contact with another member of its species; doing so instantly transfers the remainder of the knowledge it needs.

Although they have an innate desire to dominate other creatures, phrenic scourges do not normally struggle with one another. They are very cooperative amongst themselves, and seem to possess the first rudiments of a hive mind.
