Assassin's Sight

Price 5,250 gp; Slot none; CL 5th; Weight 4 lbs.; Aura faint divination


This black telescopic sight is made of lusterless metal and features a thick glass lens.

It can be mounted on the stock of a light or heavy crossbow, but not a hand crossbow. An assassin's sight allows the wielder to make ranged sneak attacks from greater distances than normal. This sight has two settings: 0–30 feet and 30–60 feet. A character using a crossbow equipped with an assassin's sight can make sneak attacks against foes within the selected range.

For example, by setting the range to 30–60 feet, a character can make sneak attacks against creatures only if they are between 30 and 60 feet of the wielder; attacks against targets closer than 30 feet or farther than 60 feet would not count as sneak attacks, even if they met all the other requirements for making a sneak attack.

Setting the range on an assassin's sight is a full-round action that provokes attacks of opportunity.
