Shaaryan Hunter - Faerun Prestige Class
This is a Forgotten Realms Exclusive Class
Though they almost never leave their homeland, Shaaryans have a reputation as wily bandits, masterful horsemen, and uncanny hunters. While allegations of banditry are not universally true, nearly every able-bodied Shaaryan is a capable rider, and a goodly number of them are indeed trackers and hunters of no small skill. On the backs of their swift horses, Shaaryan hunters can run down even the fastest prey and either spear it with a lance or pelt it with arrows from horseback. Most Shaaryan hunters stay within their homeland, providing food and materials for their tribes, but a rare few venture out into Faerûn to seek adventure. Such nomads usually become wilderness guides or bounty hunters.
Rangers and barbarians make up the majority of Shaaryan hunter candidates, but rogues are reasonably common as well. Druids very rarely take up the life of the hunter, and members of the other classes almost never have the wilderness survival skills necessary for the prestige class.
