Divine Oracle - General Prestige Class
This is a general Prestige class that may be applicable to the Forgotten Realms Campaign
Some people call them mad, and certainly some divine oracles are driven mad by the visions they see. Some people doubt their words; indeed, some divine oracles are cursed never to be believed. Wherever the deities are known to speak to mortals, some mortals hear their voices with a unique clarity and gain insight into the past, the present, and the future by virtue of their unusual status. Divine oracles are such mortals, blessed - or cursed - by visions from their deities.
All divine oracles are spellcasters, and most were clerics or druids before adopting the divine oracle prestige class. Whatever their other classes, all divine oracles share a particular devotion to the Divination school of magic, having mastered all available means to catch glimpses of the future.
NPC divine oracles often live in out-of-the-way places, though usually close enough to civilization that people with pressing questions about the future can seek them out to have their questions answered. They frequently inhabit sacred shrines or ancient temples and rarely take an active part in world affairs.
