Yakuza - Orient Prestige Class
This Prestige class uses elements that may not be applicable to the Forgotten Realms Campaign
The yakuzas are many different things depending on who is asked. Some call them protectors of the common folk, others think of them as thugs and extortionists, still others rely on them as an unofficial police force. They are simultaneously despised and respected, sometimes even supported by the local authorities. On one hand, they represent the shadowy underworld, directing and controlling local activities. On the other hand, they provide protection for the helpless and watch over those in their care. Of course, such care has a price, and that is how the yakuzas make their living.
