Sword of Righteousness - Exalted Prestige Class
This Prestige class uses elements that may not be applicable to the Forgotten Realms Campaign
The call of exalted deeds does not exclude the path of the warrior. Though few in number, warriors of every stripe devote themselves to good, choosing a higher calling than their fellows. Even among paladins, some pursue a commitment to righteousness and purity that exceeds the norm, truly exalting them above their peers. These men and women are called swords of righteousness.
The sword of righteousness prestige class is simply a way for a martially oriented character - typically a paladin, fighter, ranger, barbarian, monk, or even rogue - to gain more exalted feats at the cost of a slightly slower progression in his or her basic class. It is not intended as a lifelong career path, just a sidetrack allowing such a character to focus for a short while on the trappings of righteousness. Spellcasting characters (bards, clerics, druids, sorcerers, and wizards) tend toward the wonderworker prestige class to accomplish the same goal.
No organization binds swords of righteousness together, though they are often found operating in the churches of good deities, good-aligned knightly orders, and other existing organizations dedicated no virtuous causes.
