Assassin Techniques - The Integration Cold Tech Tree

Blend into society with the Integration cold technique tree!

Interjection Games' assassin (nominated for Endzeitgeist's top 10 products of 2016) is a hybrid "momentum" class. A momentum class builds up something akin to combo points by performing various small techniques, which it can then spend as currency to power medium and large abilities. This offers significantly more granularity than similar systems, as some techniques spend 1 point, others up to 4, and still others have addons or other sliding scale mechanisms that makes their point cost a conscious choice of the player. As a hybrid, the assassin's techniques are split into hot and cold categories. Hot techniques use the aforementioned combo point system, cold techniques draw from a ki-style technique pool, and some lukewarm techniques can draw from combo points or the technique pool.

This expansion introduces the integration cold technique tree, which focuses on blending into society, establishing an inner circle of friends and allies, and mental conditioning that helps you live with the fact that you kill people for a living.
