I want to train an Argonian into the ultimate assassin. I'm leaning towards daggers and bows, minimal magic, little to no destruction or conjuration, no followers other than maybe DB. Any recommendations for quests, perks, Daedric artifacts, dragon masks?

Maybe only use Illusion magic? Has a lot of useful spells for an assassin, prob the best magic school to pick unless you want to use more than one school of magic (which it doesn’t sound like you do). Alternatively you could just use Alchemy

I like bound weapons for an Assassin. Maybe not full time, but as an option...

These are great ideas... Dual daggers and bound bow for the lone conjure spell. That way I cld just get the bound weapon perks.
While doing some research about an unarmed kahjiit build, I also wondered if it would be possible to be say, Thane of all the holds, well respected in the community, but secretly perform DB assassinations as a werewolf. Seems like it might be challenging but fun

Very doable

The problem with Argonians is most have horns.

Argonian leaves weapons at door then proceeds to ram target with horns till their dead. Bodyguard looks at dead employer and then says "That's why he is called Dourger the Gourger".

I’m actually playing that right now.

An Argonian Assassin that specialises in Bound Bow... Who also happens to have a little snack on the bodies he leaves behind!

My biggest problem is that my lack of magic outside of Bound Bow means I don’t have Silent Casting. Casting Bound Bow frequently gives away my hiding spot, which means I lose my cover and my meals are harder to get.

Namira is beside herself with joy no doubt.

I don't even use illusions, or much magic at all. I just invested in it to get silent casting for the few spells I do use. Stealthers gotta stealth.

Thanks again for the insights. Ring of namira and alchemy seems like a perfect addition too. It might be fun to RP a poison eater, an assassin who builds up poison immunity by eating his own poisoned victims!
