You want lots of Stealth, plus Climbing, Lockpicking, Acting and Disguise, plus some more Stealth. Invisibility and inaudibility magic help a great deal. Some way of starting fires on a large scale is also good. Martial arts aren't that important if you can stay concealed, but being good with a Long Knife is useful.

(I just got back home from a session that involved sneaking on board an Italian destroyer in harbour during WWII, cleaning out the captain's safe, and then setting fire to the magazines to sink the ship to conceal the robbery.)
