Rage Mage - General Prestige Class
This is a general Prestige class that may be applicable to the Forgotten Realms Campaign
At first, it seems like a contradiction - an arcane spellcaster that 'loses herself' in a blind fury. Yet, the rage mage makes for an interesting case, since her approach to magic is based on the primal passion of magic more than the studious quasi-scientific approach. The rage mage prestige class is sure to enliven any campaign, because it raises fascinating questions on the true nature of magic and magic use. But don't ask the rage mage to answer those questions herself - she's not interested in the "why," only the results.
A rage mage taps into the primal essence of magic, using her own natural anger and frenzy to channel the arcane power in flashy, flamboyant ways. Like the barbarian, the rage mage is often the product of a less civilized society. All rage mages must have at least some background as a barbarian (or some other class that grants a rage or frenzy ability), as well as training as a wizard, sorcerer, or - very rarely - a bard.
