Lion of Talisid - Exalted Prestige Class
This Prestige class uses elements that may not be applicable to the Forgotten Realms Campaign
The undisputed ruler of the guardinals, Talisad the Celestial Lion is an enormously powerful force for good and good alone, undiluted by concerns of law or chaos. He is also a mighty druid, and his mortal and guardinal champions are druids and rangers who share both his fierce hatred of evil and his passionate love of the natural world and its creatures. Called the lions of Talisid, these protectors of nature and champions of good emulate their celestial patron in more concrete ways: adopting feline animal companions, assuming great cat forms with their wild shape ability, and eventually roaring like a leonal. Druids and rangers most commonly become lions of Talisid, and only a character with an animal companion can enter the class. Multiclass druid/rangers also commonly adopt the class, and less commonly, fighter/druids or cleric/rangers.
Like their guardinal patron, lions of Talisid usually work alone or in small groups of close companions, rarely with other lions. NPC lions of Talisid can be found wandering the wilderness, fighting any who would defile the natural world with evil. They are particularly concerned with areas where some evil presence corrupts nature itself, manifesting evil weather and vile corrupted creatures.
