Luiren Marchwarden - Faerun Prestige Class
This is a Forgotten Realms Exclusive Class
The Luiren marchwarden is the defender of the frontier in the land of the halflings. In Luiren, much of the territory is still verdant and untamed. The hi rarely settle down for long stretches, but their communities are still threatened by encroaching monsters and would-be invaders from other lands. The halflings need protectors to watch over them and keep dangers from slipping past the borders unobserved. Such is the task of the Luiren marchwarden.
Rangers and druids are best suited to become marchwardens, but sometimes other classes choose this path. Of those classes, only wizards and sorcerers truly lack the defensive instincts necessary to carry out the tasks of the marchwarden effectively. Barbarians are unusual in Luiren, and thus they are also rare as marchwardens.
Marchwardens work alone and in small groups. Either way, they accept responsibility for a specific region of the countryside, and they consider it their duty to defend that plot of land - and the halflings who reside on it - from any and all threats. They seldom roam beyond their home territory, because many of their abilities and powers are tied to the region where they stand vigilant.
