When the wealthy and the powerful need an enemy eliminated quietly and without fail, they call upon the ninja. When a general needs to sabotage the siege engines of his foes before they can reach the castle walls, he calls upon the ninja. And when fools dare to move against a ninja or her companions, they will find the ninja waiting for them while they sleep, ready to strike. These shadowy killers are masters of infiltration, sabotage, and assassination, using a wide variety of weapons, practiced skills, and mystical powers to achieve their goals.
Every race of Ocean has independently developed a secret Ninja tradition at some point in their history. The Dwarves speak in hushed tones about the Tunnel Shadows; among the Elves there is an organization the name of which is pronounced as the sharp intake of breath, like one caused by a knife slipping between the ribs; death is part of life among the Orcs, but when something threatens the survival or stability of an entire tribe the elite and secretive Night tribe will get involved, even the carefree Halflings have the slightly-less cheerful Silentfoot clan.
