Occult Slayer - General Prestige Class
This is a general Prestige class that may be applicable to the Forgotten Realms Campaign
The occult slayer is driven to confront any arcane or divine spellcaster who crosses her path. Occult slayers beleive that mortals are too irresponsible to wield magic, and those that dare do so must be slain.
The occult slayer comes into her own through exhaustive training. Every regimen she performs is an exercise that refines her anger against spellcasters into martial skill. Each occult slayer forms a preternatural bond with her masterwork weapon of choice, which serves as the instrument of her vengeance.
This prestige class is ideal for individuals who have been victimized by spellcasters and seek acceptable ways to oppose them. Most occult slayers begin their careers as fighters, although barbarians and rangers often take this path as well. Monks and rogues have also been known to embrace this calling, but bards and paladins find the occult slayer's preoccupation with spellcasters stifling. Clerics, druids, sorcerers, and wizards - the primary targets of occult slayers - tend not to adopt this prestige class, although such characters are not without precedent.
