The Guild of Assassins

Motto: Nil Mortifi, Sine Lucre (No killing without pay)

The Guild of Assassins are one of the most powerful guilds in Ankh Morpork which is due to the fact that many members are from noble families. The guild school is recognised as providing the best all-round education and so many high born families send their children there although not all are required to study the black syllabus. They are not mere murderers and you would be wise not to accuse them of being so, they are bound by rules the most important of which is embodied by the guild motto. They do not kill indiscriminately and it is frowned upon for them to kill anyone whose name is not on the contract.
