Great Rift Deep Defender - Faerun Prestige Class
This is a Forgotten Realms Exclusive Class
The Great Rift deep defender has a keen understanding of the importance of making a stand. He knows he must remain vigilant against the possibility of attack from the ancient enemies of the gold dwarves, and he has taken it upon himself to become an immovable bastion of protection at the edges of his subterranean home. He acts as a dam against the enemies that could invade his beloved Rift, and such a dwarf refuses to give way to any attacks, no matter how formidable.
Most Great Rift deep defenders are first fighters, paladins, rangers, or clerics. Rogues, bards, and monks depend too heavily on mobility to effectively use the abilities of the Great Rift deep defender, and the gold dwarves don't count many barbarians among their number. While sorcerers and druids might find the defensive capabilities of the Great Rift deep defender beneficial, such individuals usually have other goals.
Great Rift deep defenders serve as the main line of defense along the perimeter of the Deep Realm, that portion of the Great Rift below the surface and adjacent to the Underdark. They work well in units, guarding passages that lead deeper into uncontrolled territory. Occasionally, a Great Rift deep defender can be found on some special mission elsewhere in the Underdark or, more rarely, on the surface.
