Slayer - Psion Prestige Class

This is a Psion Prestige class that may be applicable to the Forgotten Realms Campaign

Only the naive dismiss the illithid threat. Or so say those who have dedicated their lives to the eradication of the "mind flayer infection." Psionic beings know the real dangers illithids pose better than nonpsionic individuals, but even so, most are unwilling to honor the code of the slayer.

A primary slayer credo is "Do or die," where "do" means "find and slay illithids." A faltering heart does not a slayer make (another of their credos - which, truth be told, number in the hundreds). It is a poorly kept secret that while slayers are best at hunting and slaying illithids, many of their abilities make them deadly to any psionic creature.

Any character with some psionic ability can become a slayer: All it takes is hating illithids enough. Dwarves who take this prestige class are known as caradhaker, which loosely means "mindstalker." In fact, it may be that the slayers first originated among the dwarves, though they say they received their lore from another, secret source.

NPC slayers sometimes travel in bands of two or three and enjoy identifying their group with a grisly name. Such groups are often hired as mercenaries by wealthy folk who travel in illithid-infested areas. But between commissions, they are just as likely to strike out on their own, attempting to uncover the location of another mind flayer outpost, or better yet, a sunless city. Stories also exist of rogue slayers bands who have branched out and hunt any and all psionic creatures, not just illithids.
