Hospitaler - General Prestige Class
This is a general Prestige class that may be applicable to the Forgotten Realms Campaign
It is the duty of knights hospitaler to protect people traveling on religious pilgrimages. Over the years, this single duty has expanded to include the construction and administration of hospitals and refugee facilities.
Hospitalers are a fighting force of necessity, sworn to poverty, obedience, and the defense of those in their care. NPC hospitalers often travel in groups, usually with pilgrims on their way to or from a site of particular importance to their faith. Hospitalers maybe found running pilgrim hostels, defending temple hospitals, or standing vigil over religious relics and sites. They seldom go on quests or adventures except to rescue endangered pilgrims or to recover relics or sites from heretics and unbelievers.
