Knight of the Weave - Faerun Prestige Class
This is a Forgotten Realms Exclusive Class
Over a dozen deities have worshipers who are paladins, promoting law and good across Faerûn, but it is the Weave itself that empowers and strengthens the Knights of the Weave. Distinct from the worship of Mystra, members of this mystic order of sacred defenders cherish the Weave like a fine wine, knowing that its existence enriches all of Faerûn. They drink deeply of its power; use that energy to extend its reach, and utterly smash those who would hurt the object of their love. Their power comes from pure magic, and unlike typical paladins, their power is arcane rather than divine. Over time they become imbued with the power of the Weave, capable of unleashing magic in its raw form.
Most Knights of the Weave come from the ranks of the Guardians of the Weave. A few characters become knights on their own, usually after witnessing some event that reveals the beauty, power, and fragility of magic in the world. Fighters and paladins are the most likely to become knights, and some bards and sorcerers who are willing to sacrifice some of their spell power are also aspirants to the knighthood. Knights must have a basic understanding of magic whether or not they are spellcasters, and some knowledge of the history of the world and how magic shaped it is necessary as well. Strength (for melee attacks) and Charisma (for spellcasting) are key abilities for Knights of the Weave.
