Black Blood Hunter - Faerun Prestige Class
This is a Forgotten Realms Exclusive Class
The People of the Black Blood are lycanthropes united only by their reverence for Malar, the Beastlord. The basic credo of Malar's church - survival of the fittest and winnowing of the weak - is evil in a dispassionate way, but the god grants exceptional power to those who supplement that bestial level of evil with torture, rape, and other truly vile acts.
Black blood hunters come from all classes, and both afflicted and natural lycanthropes are eligible for the prestige class. Rangers, druids, and barbarians are common among the hunters, but only because they are common among the People of the Black Blood. Clerics of Malar often choose this path as well because they enjoy having the ability to cast spells in animal form.
Black blood hunters have no organizational structure. Some bands of People of the Black Blood include hunters; others do not. Some of the hunters have risen to leadership of their packs, while others wish only to participate in the hunt.
