Strifeleader - Faerun Prestige Class
This is a Forgotten Realms Exclusive Class
The Prince of Lies demands control by any means necessary. Strifeleaders are the chief instruments of the Dark Sun, charged with spreading the One True Way of Cyric (as least the Prince of Lies whispers it in their minds) through force and deception. They spread strife and work murder everywhere in order to make folk fear and believe in Cyric.
Most strifeleaders are clerics, rogues, or bards. Particularly crafty fighters and barbarians may become strifeleaders, but characters of other classes rarely pursue this path.
Strifeleaders are often found supporting rulers with a taste for cruelty and empire-building. They indulge in intrigue in every land so as to spread strife everywhere without plunging realms into widespread war and thus give worship to Tempus the war deity. Most also spend their time scheming against each other in an endless struggle of cabal against cabal, with each strifeleader seeking to increase his personal power.
