Should Assasin be allowed to reroll when using assasinate?
Now I know the card does not stipulate anything about there having fate rule but its worth bringing up. I dunno it feels like they did not impliment from the old version a new rule to work with fate properly in 4th edditon.

Seems kind of lore-breaking if your going to assasinate someone you should only have the one chance to do it considering enemies can not re-roll. Discuss.

assassinate is a passive ability and all other characters are allowed to use fate to reroll. It is in no way game breaking, you have limited fate too so.... I guess I don't see the problem.

EDIT: Also think of using fate as changing one's fate, that's the idea behind them if it's just the lore thing or emersion or whatever is bothering you. It's a world of magic and stuff so it really isn't that big of a thing.

Fate is part of the mechanics of an action. So you aren't having a second opportunity to assasinate; it's a mechanic that shifts the odds slightly of what could have been - and may still be - a failed assassination attempt.

Well in that example it'd be more of adding/subtracting a number from what you rolled, in favor of whatever fate you were going for I guess.

If this were to boil down to a discussion on balance on the fairly powerful Assassain I would only suggest that in the next edition he shouldn't be given as much starting Fate. ...but other than that: nature of the beast.
When playing as the Assassin in the boardgame it's a bit hard to not be THE target yourself as everyone (at least in my play group) knows how the character does his business and how easily it can be for him to level.

I'd prefer the Assassin unable to take followers and/or assasinate only on cards landed on, rather than drawn. I mean, assassins work *alone*, not with princesses and maidens and mules carrying a market full of goods.
