Fang of Sseth - Faerun Prestige Class
This is a Forgotten Realms Exclusive Class
The Viper's Fangs is a secretive order of spies that operates throughout Faerûn on behalf of the yuan-ti. Its membership is largely made up of humans and yuan-ti pureblood thieves, assassins, and thugs. Members refer to each other as Vipers and follow a fraternal code that's been known to override the orders of powerful Yuan-ti priests, coiled cabalists, and tribal leaders. The code is a simple one: Don't harm or steal from other Vipers.
Members of the Viper's Fangs know that a slow, soft, and subtle manner of operation is the right way to power for the yuan-ti. Indeed, they champion careful husbanding of human prosperity so that the prize is always worth taking (and ever more valuable). However, as the saying goes, "There are times when the Vipers must bite, and that's when they call on their fangs." The Fangs of Sseth constitute the strike force of the Vipers - the stealthy killers who leave no trace.
