War Wizard of Cormyr - Faerun Prestige Class
This is a Forgotten Realms Exclusive Class
The Cormyrean war wizards are some of the most respected battle-mages in all Faerûn. Trained by experienced combat mages, they bring great power to the battlefield. In the war against the Tuigan horde, they were instrumental in protecting the outnumbered allied troops fighting against the horde. In the recent war in Cormyr against the dragon and her goblin minions, many war wizards lost their lives holding back the onslaught. Since their creation, they have been one of Cormyr's most effective tools against subversion by foreign or hostile powers. The road they must travel to achieve such ends is long, difficult, and often lonely, but the special people who follow this path are made of the stuff that can endure such hardships. Their reward? The respect of their peers and the people of Cormyr, and the gratitude of kings.
As expected, wizards make the best war wizards, but despite the name the class is not limited to wizards alone. Sorcerers often select this path, for their dedication to a specific area of magic can make them powerful servants of Cormyr's crown. Though bards can qualify, few find this path worthwhile.
Most war wizards serve the kingdom of Cormyr directly, and that duty rarely allows adventuring. Still, some war wizards work more proactively, - seeking out potential threats to Cormyr and rectifying them before the situation merits greater attention.
