Q: Dear Sage,
If a knight (Player’s Handbook II, 24) gains the sneak attack class feature by multiclassing, is there any way he can use it without breaking the knight's code?
A: A knight may deliver sneak attack damage when flanking an enemy without breaking the knight’s code. (Even though the knight doesn’t gain the normal bonus on attack rolls due to flanking, he’s still considered flanking for all other purposes.)
About the Author
The Sage is a mammal classified in the bear family, Ursidae, native to central and southern China. Debate continues as to whether he is truly a bear or more related to the raccoon rather than the bear, or perhaps in a family of his own. When not eating bamboo and answering rules questions, he works under the nom de plume of Andy Collins as an RPG developer in Wizards of the Coast R&D, where his development credits include Complete Mage, Dragon Magic, and the Player's Handbook v.3.5. He can be easily recognized by his large, distinctive black patches around the eyes, ears and on his rotund body.
