Skylord - Exalted Prestige Class
This Prestige class uses elements that may not be applicable to the Forgotten Realms Campaign
An elf crusader, the skylord uses his kinship with creatures of the sky and the power of the winds to fight evil. His ties with the elven community are generally loose at best, since he sees much more urgency in the day-to-day events of the world. This point of view is often lost on the elven lords who would prefer to insulate themselves from the affairs of the shorter-lived races. Elves who become skylords often come from the ranks of barbarians, fighters, druids, and rangers.
Soaring above the world of men, the skylord observes all. From such a vantage point, the skylord learns to appreciate the beauty of the world below, ply the winds, and use the rage of storms to his advantage. He can quickly disappear by cloaking himself in clouds to avoid his foes. During a battle, his presence inspires confidence in all airborne allies who fight at his side.
The skylord often serves as an aerial scout, watching the movements of evil armies and studying areas not easily reached by land. He is also a courier, conveying messages across great distances much more quickly than would otherwise be possible without the use of magic. The skylord truly shines when evil bears its ugly head in the sky, but when necessary, he is a capable fighter indoors or underground.
