On a mud I was on had a similar idea, but they had assissans with the skill 
only.  The assissans were IMP hand picked to do the dirty dead, and anyone
could have someone killed as long as they met the price.   The only problem
was not everyone know the location of the assissans board to post a message.
The assissins were just a myth, they didnt exist, but people would 
wind up dead anyways.  Just an idea for thoughts.
