Apostle of Peace - Exalted Prestige Class
This Prestige class uses elements that may not be applicable to the Forgotten Realms Campaign
In a world where conflict usually means violence, where good and evil meet regularly on the field of battle, where might too often makes right and power is measured in gold peaces, the apostle of peace is a lone voice crying in the wilderness, calling for a change of heart. Having completely forsworn violence in any form, the apostle of peace is an advocate for nonviolent resolution of conflict. He is a powerful font of divine magic, hut his spells are all aimed toward healing, calming hostility, and aiding his allies.
Members of all classes can qualify to become apostles of peace, though barbarians, fighters, and rogues have difficulty meeting the skill prerequisites and are usually too oriented toward martial exploits to be interested. Clerics, bards, and druids often develop pacifistic philosophies and gravitate toward this class, but any character can experience a conversion of sorts and become an apostle of peace.
Apostles of peace are usually solitary wanderers or even hermits. Many non-player character (NPC) apostles are far removed from the violent struggles of the adventuring life, but may serve as resources of knowledge, spells, or spiritual guidance for adventuring PCs. Apostle of peace PCs are unusual but not impossible; see Waging Peace in Chapter 2 of Book of Exalted Deeds, for advice about using such characters in the game.
