Mole - General Prestige Class
This is a general Prestige class that may be applicable to the Forgotten Realms Campaign
In underground communities where members dig their homes and livelihoods out of the living earth, a few diggers occasionally gain an unusual affinity for earth and digging. When combined with a warrior's spirit, these underground dwellers sometimes become moles.
Moles are patient and tenacious, like the stone from which they carve their livelihoods. As combatants, they live for the ambush. They can wait for hours in cramped space for quarry to come along, and they launch devastating blows from the safety of an alcove, or within solid rock.
As workers and miners, they are single-minded in their attempts to wring a few more gems out of the earth. Further, they can excavate amazing amounts of earth in a fraction of the time it would take a normal miner to dig out a vein of precious metal. In a mining operation, moles are usually given a passage to themselves and told to come back when they get hungry. Sometimes these individuals aren't seen for two or three shifts afterward.
