Deep Diviner - Underdark Prestige Class
This Prestige class uses elements that may not be applicable to the Forgotten Realms Campaign
Deep diviners are intimates of the earth and all that it hides. A deep diviner knows the stones, structures, faults, hot spots, and mineral types of the Underdark, and they know her. She uses her earthborn power to locate fluxes of energy, especially earth nodes, with which she can recharge and augment her own arcane might. Some deep diviners can even call elemental spirits of the earth to do their bidding.
All deep diviners are skilled in some form of spellcasting - without that ability, node knowledge and other secret spells whispered by the stones would do her no good. Thus, wizards, sorcerers, clerics, and druids most commonly take up the deep diviner mantle.
Groups of deep diviners can often be found working together, protecting or shepherding particularly interesting (or node-rich) areas of the Underdark. On other occasions, a single deep diviner may strike out on her own in search of the perfect earth node to customize for herself. Lone deep diviners tend toward selfishness, though they are not necessarily evil. Deep diviners are rarely happy in groups that travel predominately on the surface of the earth, though some earth nodes near the upperworld do extend high enough to permit the occasional earthly communion so necessary to the deep diviner's soul.
