Syntax: Strangle <victim>

Although throat-cutting assassination can be highly effective when there is a need to clear a room quick, some thieves prefer the more subtle method of simply strangling a victim until they pass out. Don't assume that this means that some thieves are weak and do not like to kill; in fact, more thieves who choose to strangle rather than slit do so in order to gain the upper hand when they backstab their sleeping victim. One must be very fleet of foot and strong in order to strangle the foe. A failed strangle attempt does not sit well with most, though....

Ninja do not incur any lag penalty when using strangle; instead, they have a few-second recovery timer. Ninjas also cannot be strangled at all, including mobs with the Ninja subclass.
