Argent Savant - General Prestige Class
This is a general Prestige class that may be applicable to the Forgotten Realms Campaign
Of all the energies summoned or shaped by magic, force is perhaps the most pure. No analog for this power exists in the physical world; it comes into being only through the medium of spells, and therefore represents a perfection of intent that contradicts the imperfection of the everchanging world and its mutable elements. Sometimes referred to as the "force mage," the argent savant regards spells that evoke or apply magical force as the noblest and most fascinating spells at her disposal, and she seeks to increase her understanding and control of this mystical power at every opportunity.
Most argent savants are evokers or abjurers, or sorcerers who choose a number of force spells as they advance in level. Without some facility at the manipulation of magical force, a spellcaster cannot embark on the secret studies of the argent savant.
NPC argent savants sometimes join groups that aim to take on a powerful wizard or sorcerer who has protected his domicile with powerful wards of force. Argent savants of sufficient ability can dissolve the force effects of others.
