Prophet of Erathaoi - Exalted Prestige Class
This Prestige class uses elements that may not be applicable to the Forgotten Realms Campaign
The prophet of Erathaoi is a seer and visionary, a medium of the heavenly will, pronouncing judgment on corruption and evil in the world, speaking words of comfort to the oppressed and downtrodden, and announcing the work of the archons in the world. She channels celestial spirits and allows them to use her body for their purposes on the Material Plane. Insofar as these celestials have knowledge of future events, the prophet may speak authoritatively about events to come, but her primary focus is on changing the present world into a better world for the future, a place where law and good might reign supreme.
Most prophets of Erathaoi are clerics, either servants of a lawful good deity such as Heironeous or Moradin or proponents of lawful good ideals without particular attention to a specific deity. However, the gift of prophecy is notoriously indiscriminate, and members of all spellcasting classes occasionally find themselves speaking on behalf of the heavens.
Prophets of Erathaoi are not the oracles that people consult when they want to know whether to launch a business enterprise, start a war, or win someone's favor - too often prophets give answers that people don't really want to hear. Lawful good kings do sometimes take on prophets as advisors, but even the most well-intentioned ruler has a hard time following a true prophet's advice all the time. Most prophets, with no one seeking out their words, make themselves a nuisance in palaces, in marketplaces, or on city streets, proclaiming celestial judgment to whoever listens.
