Fey Courtier - General Prestige Class
This is a general Prestige class that may be applicable to the Forgotten Realms Campaign
The Seelie and Unseelie courts form the nexus of fey society. To succeed in such a competitive political and social environment, a character needs persuasive skills and the ability to find out information. No one succeeds alone. A cadre of devoted followers provide essential contacts and support. A character with these assets who wishes to further his or her court career often pursues the path of the courtier prestige class.
Members of almost any class can meet the requirements. However, few pure clerics, sorcerers, or wizards will choose to sacrifice their magic studies to gain status at court. Sometimes a bard pursues advancement as a courtier. Rogues with a focus on social skills most easily transition to the prestige class.
NPC courtiers are more common than player character ones. They populate the fey courts, vying with each other for prestige, prominence, and the queens' favor.
