Spelldancer - Faerun Prestige Class
This is a Forgotten Realms Exclusive Class
Spelldancers are an energetic sort of spellcaster who draw on the quasi-primal energy of song and dancing to power their magic. Functioning similar to a sorcerer or bard, they create magic when they need it, drawing from a wide repertoire of spells but in a taxing manner. Some call them spellsingers, but the primary component of their magic is the dance, and "spellsinger" is often confused with the slang term for a mage, "spellslinger."
Most spelldancers are primarily sorcerers or bards, but some wizards find the path alluring, and clerics of deities such as Milil, Sharess, and Oghma sometimes walk the path of the spelldancer. Characters of other classes almost never become spelldancers. Most spelldancers are female.
NPC spelldancers often join traveling shows of minstrels, bards, and dancers. Their mundane dancing abilities are remarkable and the mobility of the group prevents too much unwanted attention. Some conservative spellcasters dislike spelldancers, and some common folk fear them and accuse them of consorting with fiends.
