Monk of the Long Death - Faerun Prestige Class
This is a Forgotten Realms Exclusive Class
Scattered across Faerûn, the monks of the long death are members of a macabre, secretive order of scholars seeking to understand the true nature of death. They do not care about the soul or the afterlife - only about the actual process of death, specifically its effects on living tissue. Their organization is strongest in Thay, but outposts are scattered throughout Faerûn, even in the Silver Marches.
Monks make up the majority of the candidates for this prestige class, but clerics of the dark gods of death (such as Velsharoon, Kiaransalee, and even the dead god Myrkul) are fairly common as well. Necromancers, assassins, and other characters who are fascinated with death round out the order's numbers.
