Shadowbane Stalker - General Prestige Class
This is a general Prestige class that may be applicable to the Forgotten Realms Campaign
Those they name as heretics or servants of evil call them zealots. Those they protect from darkness call them saviors and defenders of the truth. Whatever their label, shadowbane stalkers rank as some of the most feared individuals wherever they go.
All shadowbane stalkers belong to the Order of Illumination, a fellowship of holy knights dedicated to finding and rooting our hidden evil. The Order of Illumination hunts evil-from liars and petty con artists to mind flayer cabals hidden in the heart of a decadent empire - in its most secret lair, and shadowbane stalkers lead the search.
Although many think it restrictive and insensitive, the Order of Illumination is a powerful force for good. Shadowbane stalkers do their part to find evil hidden within the midst of civilized areas so that the martial arm of the order, led by the shadowbane inquisitors (see the previous prestige class), can spearhead the attack against the corruption. Shadowbane stalkers usually work alone or with small groups of independent adventurers, but it is also common for a stalker and an inquisitor to adventure together as partners. Their skills and abilities complement each other, and they know that the other members of the order are some of the few beings they can trust implicitly.
