Cragtop Archer - General Prestige Class
This is a general Prestige class that may be applicable to the Forgotten Realms Campaign
In times of peace, the cragtop archer hunts across the deep mountain canyons, felling animals too canny for other hunters to approach. In times of war, the cragtop archer fights from a ridgeline, raining arrows down on her foes from hundreds of yards away and winning battles from seemingly impossible distances.
Cragtop archers train their eyes and minds to find targets at great distances, and to quickly compensate for wind, movement, and other factors that affect shots of such difficulty. Few warriors can match the cragtop archer's ability to hold higher ground against a group of enemies.
Human, goliath, and half-elf rangers comprise most of the small number of cragtop archers that patrol the northern ranges, but other races and classes occasionally join their ranks. Fighters, especially those with a level of rogue or ranger, make excellent cragtop archers. Rogues typically prefer to sneak close to their foes rather than train as cragtop archers, and spellcasters rarely have the martial expertise required for the class.
