Goldeye - Faerun Prestige Class
This is a Forgotten Realms Exclusive Class
The Merchant's Friend is the patron of trade, money, and wealth. Goldeyes are agents and promulgators of commercial intercourse, seeking to increase the wealth of their communities and realms by promoting the exchange of coins in trade. Some spend their younger years as adventurers, seeking to acquire sizable stakes on which to build a fortune. Others view themselves as "liberators" of unused coins, lying forgotten in dusty crypts or unused in miserly hoards where they do nothing to build ever-increasing wealth. Conversely, others act as defenders of hoards, making sure that wealth (particularly their own and the church's) stays in the proper hands.
Most goldeyes have backgrounds as clerics or cleric/rogues, although other class combinations, particularly those including bard, fighter, sorcerer, or wizard, are not unknown.
Goldeyes are typically found in large cities, heading up merchant consortiums, running trading costers, or working to remove political, religious, and cultural impediments to trade. Many are extremely wealthy members of the merchant nobility, wielding power from behind the scenes through careful application of their coins.
