Knight of the Middle Circle - General Prestige Class
This is a general Prestige class that may be applicable to the Forgotten Realms Campaign
These knights are members of the Stargazers organization. Once ordained, knights of the Middle Circle accept strict demands for their allegiance and obedience and undertake many important duties. They provide security for Stargazer chapterhouses and may be called upon for similar service for allies of the Stargazers. Since the Stargazers welcome members of any class to their ranks, the knights of the Middle Circle often deliver membership invitations to honorable, good adventurers or expert astronomers who have served the Outer Circle for several years. The knights often offer missions and quests to Outer Circle adventurers, and occasionally lead such adventures. If a mission is too important for those not sworn to the Stargazers to know of, knights of the Middle Circle may be assigned to work on it secretly under the cover of some more obvious activity.
Knights of the Middle Circle receive messages and instructions from the Inner Circle via secret communications and carrier pigeons. Thus, they're comfortable working either with animals or with messages that carry hidden meaning. Because of their exposure to prophecy and various ways of divining the future, knights of the Middle Circle develop extraordinary powers of intuition and prediction.
NPC knights of the Middle Circle may deliver invitations to undertake quests. They're generally friendly and warm, but evasive when questioned closely about their order. When asked how the Stargazers decided to undertake a quest, they say that they observe the movements of the stars in the night sky and interpret those movements. When knights undertake a quest without members of the Outer Circle, they never discuss it openly.
