Coiled Cabalist - Faerun Prestige Class
This is a Forgotten Realms Exclusive Class
Standing apart from the priests of Sseth but careful never to draw their collective ire by openly opposing them, the members of the Coiled Cabal pursue the arcane arts largely in secrecy. The creed of this shadowy organization holds that true power can be obtained through mastery of magic that has nothing to do with gods. After all, magic has worked well as a weapon for the puny humans, so there's no reason that it shouldn't also be part of the vrael olo arsenal.
Cabalists work in oumkathuss - small groups of no more than a dozen individuals. Each oumkathuss reports to up to three overhoods, who in turn report to higher-ranking overhoods within a hidden hierarchy. Rank in the Coiled Cabal is not closely tied to level or magical mastery, but it is linked to achievements. A typical member is a sorcerer or wizard with enough experience and prestige to have attracted half a dozen apprentices.
