Frost Mage - Frostfell Prestige Class
This Prestige class uses elements that may not be applicable to the Forgotten Realms Campaign
Frost mages usually hail from lands of cold, snow, and ice tundra, glaciers, even outer planes perpetually shrouded in winter. Others become obsessed with the power of glacial cold and focus all their energy into discovering the mysteries of the frostfell and its magic. All frost mages, however, eventually become adapted to cold environments as their skin slowly turns to frost. They learn to take advantage of the natural or magically enhanced frostfell environment, harnessing the existing cold to further empower their own spells.
As members of this prestige class must have the ability to cast arcane spells, frost mages come from a narrow group, usually bards, sorcerers, and wizards. Some frost mage sorcerers believe silver dragon blood runs in their veins, while others feel they possess an innate talent for works of cold and ice magic. Most wizards who become frost mages see the frostfell as a mysterious and undiscovered frontier of arcane power, one from which they can draw strong magic for their own purposes.
