Guardian of the Road - Prestige Class
This is a general Prestige class that may be applicable to the Forgotten Realms Campaign
The worshipers of Fharlanghn believe that every road, street, and path is a precious gift from their god. The Dweller on the Horizon, it is said, watches over those who travel for any reason and gives his blessings to every journey. What's more, his faithful often wander the world offering aid and comfort to any travelers they meet.
However, the devoted do not aid one excursion -- the quest to find Journey's End, which some also know as Fharlanghn's secret garden that has been hidden from the eyes of the world for centuries. In fact, an entire sect of Fharlanghn worshipers have made it their sworn duty to prevent anyone from ever reaching Journey's End. This sect calls itself the Guardians of the Road.
Guardians of the Road are fanatical worshipers of Fharlanghn. They give up or sell their homes and any other property they own and devote themselves completely to worshiping their deity, the god of roads. They permanently join the Eternal Pilgrimage and spend their lives walking the roads of the world and helping fellow travelers. But members of this order also have a second calling -- to protect the secret of Journey's End.
Journey's End is an idyllic garden created by Fharlanghn as the ultimate destination -- a literal paradise on earth. Guardians of the Road believe that it is the holiest spot in the world -- a place that ordinary folk have no business sullying with their worthless feet. The order is completely dedicated to preventing anyone other than high-ranking clerics of Fharlanghn from ever finding the location of Journey's End. To this end, they use deception and trickery first, but if those fail, they are willing to kill to keep their holiest site undisturbed.
