Mask of Johydee - Greyhawk Prestige Class
This Prestige class uses elements that may not be applicable to the Forgotten Realms Campaign
The faith of Johydee is an ancient one, and her followers are scattered across the Flanaess. Many sages speculate that members of the masks of Johydee can be found in lands far from the Iron League, but certainly the greatest concentration inhabits the southeastern Flanaess.
Adopting many different guises, masks serve as the hidden guardians of the Oeridian people. They prefer to use the weapons of their foes against them, following the ancient example of Johydee. (In ancient times, the Hidden Empress tricked the Lords of Evil to fashion for her a mask that allowed her to take any shape, which she then used to rescue her people from thralldom.) Given then-very nature, it is unknown whether the masks represent a vast network spanning the Flanaess or merely isolated individuals quietly fighting their own private wars against the enemies of all things Oeridian.
Masks of Johydee often serve as spies for armies or the nobility, capitalizing on their dedication to subterfuge and disguise while quietly pushing a pro-Oeridian agenda. Most believe that their daring exploits, secret missions, and narrow escapes please Johydee. Prized by their benefactors as peerless agents, those who know of the cult know enough to respect their ability and fear their reach. Rogues, fighters, are rangers dominate the rank and file of the cult, with the somewhat more rare clerics serving in positions of authority.
