Master of the Secret Sound - General Prestige Class
This is a general Prestige class that may be applicable to the Forgotten Realms Campaign
There are words of power - magical words so potent that simply speaking them can cause one to become blind or even die. At the base of these words are sounds. Sounds and all that they comprise - vibration, modulation, frequency, volume - carry with them power, and for those who know the proper sounds, this power can be wielded as surely as a sword or a spell. The masters of the secret sound are a loosely organized secret society who studies sound and uses its power to further its members' own ends. With their knowledge of the powers of sound, they can strike down foes, protect themselves, and even alter their spells.
