Final Stats:
STR 12 [+1]

CON 12 [+1]

Skills:
Hide: 23 + 6 + 2 = 31
Move Silently: 23 + 6 = 29
Search: 23 + 3 = 26
Truespeak: 23 + 3 + 3 = 29
Tumble: 23 + 6 + 2 = 31
Disable Trap: 18 + 3 = 21
Open Lock: 18 + 6 = 24
Set Trap: 18 + 6 = 24
Spot: 18 + 2 = 20

PROs:
*Truespeech used to damage/incapacitate opponent - from hiding safety
*HiPS allows for spamming SA's all the way home
*Moderate SA damage
*Rogue Skills
*Effective attack abilities with light weapons
*WIS bonus to AC
*Ethereal manouvers of Ninja
*Everyone loves a ninja!!

CONs:
*If WIS bonus to AC is reliant on not wearing armour (like monk) then you'd have to choose between this and leather or padded armour for most of your career - in later levels the armour could be shed once DEX bonus out-reaches armour bonus
*Some skills progression slows right down during bereft levels

EDIT: Added Truename Training at lvl 1 - moved Dodge to lvl 3 for SD reqs still met, weapon finesse to lvl 9 (a bit late, but reqs come first ), moved blind-fight to lvl 12, removed tactile trapsmith completely.
That is not dead which can eternal lie.
And with strange aeons even death may die.
