Thrall of Baphomet - Evil/Dead Prestige Class
This Prestige class uses elements that may not be applicable to the Forgotten Realms Campaign
Thralls of Baphomet are brutal warriors who serve the Prince of Beasts as unholy champions. They often act as leaders for groups of minotaurs, ogres, giants, and other monstrous worshipers of Baphomet. In humanoid society, a thrall of Baphomet is more likely a notorious and feared mercenary or bodyguard in the service of a high-ranking cleric. A thrall who manages to attain the bestial blessing (10th level) often travels to the Endless Maze on the Abyss to pledge his services directly to Baphomet. Those who displease the Prince of Beasts are eaten, but those he approves of are generally given large areas of the maze as personal domains to guard and patrol.
Most thralls of Baphomet are barbarians, fighters or rangers. Some of them multiclass as rogues, although typically only for a few levels. Spellcasting classes generally don't take levels in this prestige class since it doesn't advance spellcasting, although it's not unheard of for particularly brutal cleric/rangers of Baphomet to make the sacrifice of spellcasting capabilities to take levels of this prestige class.

To qualify to become a Thrall of Baphomet, a character must fulfill all the following criteria:
- Alignment: Chaotic evil
- Skills: Handle Animal 9 ranks, Intimidate 9 ranks, Knowledge (religion) 4 ranks.
- Feats: Great Fortitude, Improved Bull Rush, Power Attack, Thrall To Demon (Baphomet),
- Special: The character must possess a natural attack. Characters who do not possess natural attacks as a racial benefit often take the Willing Deformity and Deformity (Clawed Hands) feats. In extreme cases, prospective thralls of Baphomet have even committed suicide so an ally or paid spellcaster can cast reincarnation on them, hopefully bringing them back in a body more suited to thralldom.
