Assassinorum: Kingmaker – Robert Rath [IN BRIEF] Assassinorum: Kingmaker – Robert Rath
When the long, grinding war of attrition that is the Astra Militarum's forte is ruled out -- perhaps because it is likely to leave a valuable planet ravaged -- the High Lords will sometimes sanction the use of an Eversor Assassin.Once an operative is in the field, he must be able to cross the galaxy from one side to the other, by means fair or foul. From there, the story turns into a bit of an espionage thriller, as the three assassins begin their infiltration of the court, impersonating the knight Rakkan, and coming to grips with the unique world they have arrived at. He works silently and without thanks, for he is the bloody-handed and secret saviour of the Imperium.
