Talontar Blightlord - Faerun Prestige Class
This is a Forgotten Realms Exclusive Class
Corrupt priests who revel in decay, the blightlords of Talona are feared and reviled throughout the Unapproachable East. Their plagues have transformed the western reaches of the Rawlinswood into a foul green hell of diseased monsters and deadly poisons. Worse yet, the blightlords seek to infect the healthy forests and lands nearby with the same sickness. Under the tutelage of the horrible Rotting Man, the Talontar blightlords marshal the Rawlinswood's black horde, leading their infected minions forth to scourge the nearby lands. (For more on the Rotting Man and his minions, see Chapter 9: The Great Dale, Unapproachable East.)
Most of the blightlords are drawn from evil clerics, druids, or rangers who venerate Talona, the Mother of All Plagues. A handful of fighters, barbarians, and sorcerers have become captains of the Rotting Man's armies, but since the prospective blightlord must have access to divine spells, any such candidate must have at least some levels in a divine spellcasting class to qualify.
Hit Die: d8
To qualify to become a Talontar Blightlord, a character must fulfill all the following criteria:
- Alignment: Any evil
- Feats: Great Fortitude,
- Spellcasting: Able to cast 4th-level divine spells.
- Patron Deity: Talona
- Proficiency: Glaive. A druid who wields a glaive is in violation of her spiritual oaths, but a character may take a Martial Weapon Proficiency feat with the weapon and simply refrain from wielding it until she qualifies for the blightlord class.
