Athar - General Prestige Class
This is a general Prestige class that may be applicable to the Forgotten Realms Campaign
The Athar work tirelessly to discredit the gods, interfering with their clerics and attempting to sway the faith of their congregations. They preach the supremacy of a force they call the Great Unknown, which transcends the gods and grants athars the ability to resist divine magic. Ex-paladins and disillusioned clerics are obvious choices for this prestige class, but self-reliant classes like the monk and rogue, as well as those that worship natural forces, like the druid and ranger, are also attracted to the philosophy.
Hit Die: d8
To qualify to become an Athar, a character must fulfill all the following criteria:
- Skills: Knowledge (religion) 10 ranks.
- Base Attack: +7.
- Base Will Save: +3.
- Spellcasting: Ability to cast divine spells.
- Special: The character must abandon the worship of gods and refuse to acknowledge them as beings worthy of praise. Clerics devoted to a god who join the Athar become ex-clerics, lose all cleric spells and class features, and cannot gain levels as clerics. Athars who pray to or call upon a deity for aid become ex-athars and lose all spells and class features provided by the athar prestige class.
