Hand of the Adama - Faerun Prestige Class
This is a Forgotten Realms Exclusive Class
The hand of the Adama is a benign leader, judge and jury, and protector of the common folk all rolled into one. In a land where the faith of the people is intertwined with their day-to-day activities, the hand of the Adama is the presence that helps them remember the code of conduct, settles disputes, and assists those who require aid. A hand of the Adama understands better than anyone the truths of "The One" and serves as teacher for others to gain clarity in their actions.
Clerics and paladins most often turn to the role of spiritual advisor and peacekeeper that the hand of the Adama embodies. Very rarely, a druid or ranger accepts the mantle of a hand of the Adama. No other classes have the spiritual connection necessary to serve a temple and its flock in such a manner.
Hands of the Adama often work in small groups together, or with others who are devoted in their own way to furthering the tenets of the faith. Occasionally, a hand of the Adama leaves the Golden Water on some mission or purpose, but most are not often seen far from home. The companions of a hand of the Adama must be individuals of high moral character.
