Warlord of Utterdark - Epic Prestige Class
This Prestige class uses elements that may not be applicable to the Forgotten Realms Campaign
The warlord of utterdark is the personification of evil. He may be cold and calculating or savage and brutal, but one fact remains crystal clear: He is evil incarnate and the sworn foe of all who hold good and mercy dear to their hearts.
The path of utterdark attracts fighters, barbarians, rangers, monks, and even fallen paladins. However, most warlords of utterdark come from the ranks of blackguards or warriors of darkness.
A warlord of utterdark can rule an army of like-minded individuals, or he may serve an even more powerful master of evil, whether mortal or divine. They care nothing for rank or personal honor - only the performance of vile deeds upon innocents interests them.
