The Vanishing (perception(detection) mastery): Through misdirection and simple optical illusion the assassin can disappear by moving behind observers or objects. In game terms, this is a stealth(hiding) action at formidable difficulty (20), without being required to roll.
The Black Sight (perception(detection) grandmastery): This grandmastery grants the character the title of Black Blade and provides a +2 on critical attack table damage and injury rolls. (See Game Manual, Chapter 5 – Rules of Play)
