Ranger Knight of Furyondy - Greyhawk Prestige Class
This Prestige class uses elements that may not be applicable to the Forgotten Realms Campaign
By the decree of his pious majesty, King Belvor IV, the Kingdom of Furyondy is in a "permanent and unalterable state of war" with the Empire of Iuz. Waging this war falls to the warriors of the realm, especially the Knights of the Hart.
Unfortunately, the northern reaches of Furyondy are in ruins. Villages in ruins, roads washed out and not maintained, and raids by bands of monsters make life difficult and dangerous. The weather is damp and harsh, rusting armor and spreading sickness.
Although the standing army and the Knights of the Hart do much to bring war to Iuz, they have not been able to do it all. These warriors are ready to fight on the battlefield, but this new war calls for spying, assassination, and covert strikes against supply units and the leaders of Iuz's army. This war requires a new type of warrior: the Ranger Knights of Furyondy.
The ranger knights concentrate on the northeastern border with Iuz. Because of the vast plains and distances involved, the ranger knights combine the skills of a hunter with the speed and power of a warhorse. This combination makes the ranger knights a force to be feared.
Only skilled warriors with proven battle success and nerves of steel can join the ranger knights. Membership is by invitation only and is usually offered only once.
