Horizon Walker - General Prestige Class
This is a general Prestige class that may be applicable to the Forgotten Realms Campaign
The horizon walker is an unceasing traveler to the universes most dangerous places. As her journeys take her from place to place, she adapts to become one with her environment. In time, she develops a mystic connection with the ground beneath her. But she is by no means tied to a particular place; her restless feet are ever leading her toward the horizon, where new adventures await.
Horizon walkers tend to be hard to surprise or impress, because they've seen so many wonders during their travels. It's common for a horizon walker to have an outward attitude of "been there, done that." But horizon walkers are gripped by an unquenchable wanderlust, so they're always in the midst of a journey or planning their next one. As they travel, horizon walkers develop a magical resonance with the terrain that surrounds them, making them unparalleled guides and scouts. And they're formidable foes when their travels take them into danger, able to use the terrain they know so well to good advantage.
Rangers and bards take up the path of the horizon walker more often than other characters, but that's more because they appreciate the wanderer's life, not because the path of the horizon walker is particularly specialized. A fair number of horizon walkers were barbarians who strayed from their native lands or rogues who found their skills useful on the road. Occasionally a druid will adopt the prestige class, though most are loath to do so because they sacrifice their spellcasting advancement.
You'll find horizon walkers on the road, or in places so forbidding that roads don't exist. They rarely stay in one place for long, and they're eager to launch a new expedition - the more exotic and remote the destination, the better.
