Crinti Shadow Marauder - Faerun Prestige Class
This is a Forgotten Realms Exclusive Class
Among the idly rich Crinti of Dambrath, some thrill in the havoc they wreak on their traditional foes - the halflings to the east, the wild elves to the north, and the wizards to the west. These riders take pleasure in instilling uncertainty in their prey from a shroud of shadows, then imparting feelings of fearful surprise as the marauders appear without warning, escalating finally to sheer terror as the chase begins. Few actually see Crinti shadow marauders coming, and fewer live to tell the tale.
Crinti shadow marauders combine the physical prowess of master rider with the stealth of the most cunning shadowdancers. Rangers work as the best entry class, but multiclass rogues and fighters are also attracted to the path of the Crinti shadow marauder. Clerics, druids, and wizards find themselves particularly ill suited to the strange combination of skills demanded by this class.
Crinti shadow marauders are found almost exclusively in Dambrath, since they tend to come from the aristocracy that rules that land. They ride in packs as small as three to four individuals, all the way up to large skirmishing forces of several hundred. While the riders favor the fine horses of Dambrath, they are by no means limited to such mounts. Occasionally, a Crinti shadow marauder grows tired of the life of riding on the plains with her comrades and leaves Dambrath entirely, perhaps taking up with others to see the wider world.
