Beholder Mage - Monster Prestige Class
This Prestige class uses elements that may not be applicable to the Forgotten Realms Campaign
A normal beholder can become a wizard or sorcerer. The more ancient beholders are powerful arcanists that have used magic to extend their lifespans. Nevertheless, two practical limitations keep beholders from becoming spellcasters. First, their lack of hands makes it hard for them to use large numbers of spell components. Second, their central eye's antimagic cone makes the study and use of arcane magic difficult.
However, an increasing number of beholders are embracing a practice once held to be vile and unthinkable to their kind.
Through ritual destruction of its central eye, a beholder can learn to channel and use magic much more quickly and efficiently than can almost any other race. These are the members of the beholder mage prestige class, and the power they wield is truly impressive.
