War Chanter - General Prestige Class
This is a general Prestige class that may be applicable to the Forgotten Realms Campaign
The roar of battle, the screams of the dying, the howl of the warrior's cry . . . these are all notes in the music composed by the war chanter. His music flows across the battlefield like a raging torrent, catching friends and foes alike in its wake.
Bards of particularly militant mindsets become war chanters (giving up their spellcasting ability in the process), and among barbarians, war chanters are often the leaders or elite warriors of a tribe. The music of a war chanter inspires those around him and pushes them to greater heights of strength and deeds of valor.
Fighters and barbarians sometimes gain a few levels of bard in qualifying for this prestige class. Paladins and monks cannot join because of the alignment requirement, but members of both those classes respect the leadership and military qualities of the war chanter class.
