Verdant Lord - General Prestige Class
This is a general Prestige class that may be applicable to the Forgotten Realms Campaign
Saying the verdant lord has a green thumb is like calling a red dragon a creature with a slight affinity for fire. The verdant lord is the final defender of the forest. He has left behind the druid's search for global understanding of nature's secrets to focus all his energies on the world's plant life.
Elven and half-elven druids are the most likely characters to embrace the role of the verdant lord. Druids of other races, rangers, and the occasional priest of Obad-Hai or Ehlonna have also been known to adopt this prestige class. It's almost impossible for characters without such ties to become verdant lords because they have neither the interest in not the required understanding of seeds, saplings, and trees.
Since most verdant lords have little use for civilization, they tend to be loners, watching the years pass by from their groves. Adventuring verdant lords are rare, but those who do exist are marvelous to behold. They tend to take their gardens with them, often bringing several plant creatures, such as animated trees and treants, along on adventures. Verdant lords tend to be soft-spoken, easygoing individuals - right up until someone lights a torch and threatens living plants.
