Swift Scion - General Prestige Class
This is a general Prestige class that may be applicable to the Forgotten Realms Campaign
Some legendary weapons are meant for the hands of the quick and the silent. A swift scion might inherit her weapon or acquire it "by accident," but the weapon is no less part of her destiny than is the legendary weapon of any other scion. Characters of any class can become swift scions, but rogues, bards, rangers, and monks benefit most from the special abilities of the legendary weapons associated with this class.
Swift scions wield their weapons for a wide variety of purposes. A rogue may use it to supplement her income, while a monk might merely seek to master its use. A bard could draw upon the power of her weapon's rich history to enhance her music, while a ranger might use it as part of the hunt. Of all legendary Weapons, the ones associated with the swift scion class are the most focused in their application. Each tends to favor rogues, monks, rangers, or bards specifically, rather than a broad range of classes as the other legendary weapons do.
