Which is better for a solo assassin?

I'm not sure what your question is. You will get the thief stronghold when you do the appropriate quest. Do you want to know what is a good sword for an assasin?

sorry - very cryptic. I'm a newbie solo assassin and just completed Renal's quest. He offers me the guild as stronghold but if I turn it down I get Backstabbing sword +3. Can't decide which to take. Does anyone have an opinion?

Go ahead and take the stronghold and have some fun with it. There is going to be some other swords down the long run that are just going to be as good. There is nothing to special about the sword(IMO).

Hmmm, really? I don't remember that option when I played a thief... well, a stronghold is good to have - place to store your stuff, and the thief stronghold gives you money. But that sword does sound useful for a solo assasin... And you won't come across a better sword for quite some time; there's a +4 short sword somewhere, but quite a bit later, I think.

Welcome to the board!

Go with the stronghold. In the long run, the money will probably be helpful, plus, the stronghold will give you more experience.
