Beastmaster - General Prestige Class
This is a general Prestige class that may be applicable to the Forgotten Realms Campaign
A beastmaster feels more at home among the animals of nature than fellow sentient beings. Over time, these wanderers befriend a wide variety of animals, from mighty dire lions to tiny weasels. Eventually, a beastmaster takes on aspects of her animal companions, becoming almost as much animal as humanoid.
Druids and rangers are the most common beastmasters, thanks to those characters' natural link with the animal world. Some barbarians, fighters, or scouts also become beastmasters, particularly those with a strong affinity for nature (such as elves or halflings). Characters of other classes rarely pursue this path.
