This is a quickie Assassin build.

1 - Traps and locks: Fireflash proved that you do not need an exceptionally high INT, nor mechanic rogue, to handle traps. It is mostly a function of gear and maxing the appropriate skills. Spot, Search, and Disable. So as long as you have level-appropriate gear (+15 can be gotten on ML13 items) you will be fine. Locks are even more easily handled; with only 4 ranks Fireflash was handling locks in Shavarath (L19) and House C Manufactury (L20) quests. Gear was only a +15 item.

2 - This build is focused on DPS. Assassin gives 3d6 additional SA damage, SA training giving another 9, and the capstone 4d6 SA damage. 7D6+9 is a ton of damage. That's why I also picked Opportunist, as it allows you to ignore 10% fortification (and 3% chance of a doublestrike is also nice). Khopeshes are proven to be highest dps TWF.

3 - Tomes are included, but I made sure there's enough DEX to qualify for ITWF and GTWF without. If you have/will buy a +2 DEX tome, drop DEX to 15 instead, and put the 5 build points into STR and CON.

4 - Skills just max out Search, Disable, Spot, and UMD. After that it's really up to you. I recommend Balance though. Jump shouldn't be an issue with a Ranger and a Wizard having the spell available at level 1. Bluff can give you SA damage, so I recommend it as well.

5 - Assassin gives you a perm Vorpal effect on tier 3; on a 20 you insta-kill anything with less than 1000hp. Tier 2 gives you the assassinate ability, which also is a targeted insta-kill. After witnessing a Rogue basically solo 'Let Sleeping Dust Lie' by assassinating every ogre, I was impressed.

6 - HP will be 272 + 60 (+6 CON item) +20 (toughness item) + 30 (Greater False Life item) + 10 (Argonessan Favor) +45 (GS HP item) = 437 at cap. With Improved Evasion.

7 - UMD = 23 + 2 (+6 CHA item, assuming no tome) + 1 (skill mastery) +3 (golden cartouche) + 4 (Greater Heroism) +1 (Voice of the Master) = 35. Enough for reliable raising of the dead, and semi-reliable Heal scrolls (about 75%).

8 - You can easily drop Khopeshes for something else if you want; Skill Focus UMD would push you to 38 UMD for example; which would be nearly no-fail heal scrolls (and without a GS skills item. That would push you to no-fail Greater Teleport and Ressurection scrolls). Toughness would add 22hp, etc etc… Oversized TWF may be dropped if you remain in SA mode and flanking constantly, I took it assuming you'd lack the gear to offset the penalty. Since SA damage is your main dps, and when you lose it, you'd lose the advantages of the Khopesh (obscene crits), rapiers would be fine and not cost you a feat.

9 - STR with tome would end up about 28 unbuffed; 32 with ship and rage. Low, so try to flank enemies and let Peter or Corwin grab aggro first.
Oh that? It's just the cat sir.
