Battlesmith - General Prestige Class
This is a general Prestige class that may be applicable to the Forgotten Realms Campaign
A battlesmith is a skilled dwarf armorer and weaponsmith who uses her experience in battle, as well as her masterful weaponsmithing and armorsmithing abilities, to create deadly items for her kinsmen to wield in defense of their homes. While typically only spellcasters can craft magic items, dwarven ingenuity has found a number of ways to make skill serve where non-dwarves must rely on magic.
Aside from her incredible skill crafting items of war, a battlesmith is equally capable of raining down death and destruction in combat.
Fighters and paladins are well served by becoming battlesmiths. Spellcasters are less likely to find benefit in the profession, since they typically find little time to continue their more traditional mystical studies while working in the heat of the forge. That said, a number of clerics of Moradin take up the mantle of the battlesmith.
