Nightcloak - Faerun Prestige Class
This is a Forgotten Realms Exclusive Class
The Mistress of the Night is the twisted and perverse goddess of hatred, jealousy, and evil and the creator of the Shadow Weave. Nightcloaks are the apple of Shar's eye-devoted to her vision, preserving her secrets, practicing her magic, as twisted and bitter as she is. They are beings of iron will and determination, although that determination is perverse. They weave webs of intrigue, mental domination, blackmail, and control through the (ise of illusion, necromancy, and enchantment. Yet they are not afraid to smash their toys if it suits Shar's purposes. They are cruel and intelligent, and do not fear slipping away to return and grind their foes to dust at later time. Honor is of no consequence to them. They do as they please, as long as it furthers their - and Shar's - power.
Clerics most often become nightcloaks. Rangers are rare. Nightcloaks often have levels of wizard, sorcerer, bard, or rogue in addition to the class that grants them divine spellcasting ability.
Nightcloaks dwell in communities large and small, often worshiping in secret. Many work to overthrow governments, organize secret cabals, and create false cults to further their ends.
