Whether true or not, the idea of a small unit being able to assassinate a regiment apealed to me. I always thought eh Assassins were not individuals but bands of assassins.

I always thought it strange for them to be able to do a whole 500+ people, but hey, this is magical Glorantha!

I quite like the idea of a group of individuals hanging around with some fast cavalry or flying unit and, when the best friend is done in (and fail a recovery IMG), then all of them stand around whistling, looking at each other, and saying things like "Me? No, I didn't have a sword in my hand. I think it was the <unit> that's running <*very* fast> that way <points>" :-]
