Vengeance Knight - Faerun Prestige Class
This is a Forgotten Realms Exclusive Class
Vengeance knights roam the Lands of Intrigue in search of those who have committed acts of treachery against their employers, the Knights of the Shield. As a vengeance knight, you are a master of steel, as comfortable in your heavy plate armor as others are in courtly vestments or adventuring clothes. The sword is your weapon of choice, and you use it well to intimidate and eliminate the enemies of the Knights. Vengeance knights often wear fearsome helmets or emblazon their armor with symbols that strike fear into the hearts of their enemies before steel is even drawn.
Vengeance knights are specially trained warriors who have pledged their service to the Knights of the Shield, a group of politicians and merchants with influence in governments from Athkatla to Calimport. They are a special breed of enforcers used by the organization to cow their enemies into compliance. Fighters most often become vengeance knights, but blackguards and former paladins also make good fits because of their heavy armor use, horsemanship, and martial prowess. Strength (for melee combat), Constitution (for staying power), and Charisma (for intimidation) are key abilities for a vengeance knight.
