Vengeance Sworn - General Prestige Class
This is a general Prestige class that may be applicable to the Forgotten Realms Campaign
Born from the aftermath of dragon-wrought tragedy, death and destruction, the vengeance sworn focus their hatred of dragons and desire for revenge into a divinely sealed oath that drives them beyond the limits of mortal endurance. Battle-hardened and tested by the harsh environments in which they live, vengeance sword characters travel through rugged mountains and across trackless seas to sate their burning desire for dragon blood.
In battle, the vengeance sworn are relentless, implacable foes, hurling themselves against the gleaming scales of their draconic enemies armed only with steel weapons and their bitter fury. Among the close-knit brotherhood of warriors, vengeance sworn are given wide berth, as their often single-minded purpose sets them at odds with their more mercenary brethren. Still, their reputation for ferocity and true skill in battle wins them a place among many adventuring groups.
The vengeance sworn are far from common, but multi-classed characters with levels in barbarian and either cleric or druid from more primitive cultures are the most likely characters to become members of the prestige class. Rogues, monks, wizards, sorcerers, and other arcane spellcasters, however, rarely take the single-minded oath that fuels the hearts and limbs of the vengeance sworn.
