[Forgotten Realms] Ilmater needs some lovin'


3.5/d20/OGL


So I was looking through Faiths & Pantheons the other day because one of the members of my group is a cleric of Ilmater. I noticed this book had a lot of prestige classes that were based on a deity, but was lacking one for Ilmater.

Now if I'm blind and/or illiterate and someone can give a page number, lovely. Otherwise I was wondering if someone who's a little more versed in FR cosmology had already taken a crack at this puppy.

Either way, I wouldn't mind some help putting the class together. I like to think myself plenty savvy on the mechanics, I just might need some inspiration and fluffy bits.


Well, the Risen Martyr from the Book of Exalted Deeds sounds like something Ilmater would endorse, but you'd have to make sure your player was okay with it. Besides the religious connotations, it has somewhat harsh entry requirements... and the same goes for it's final ability.

*Party levels up*

Fighter: I got a new feat!

Wizard: I got another spell level!

Rogue: I got more sneak attack!

Martyr: I got- WOAH! (as he's wooshed off to Heaven, never to return)

*Later on*

Fighter: Wow, look at all this loot! Bet Jim would have loved this.

Wizard: Well, I'm sure he's happy up in Celestia.

Martyr: No! It sucks up here! There's no combat, no treasure, no XP; it's boring!


Hm . . . this sounds familiar . . .

Martyred Champion of Ilmater appears on page 184 of the Player's Guide to Faerun, the main drawback of the class being that I'd have to die in order to take it.

Its not Ilmater or Forgotten Realms specific, but the Sacred Fist on page 59 of Complete Divine is very much in the spirit of the FR Monk class from 2e.


Ah, the Martyred Champion of Ilmater is full of rich ideas for me to use. I'll probably get rid of that pesky 'being dead once or twice' requirement so it'll be easier to take. I think this will turn out just nicely...yes...

Thanks KnightErrantJR for giving me the idea for Nystar's prestige class. And don't worry, even though I might dump the dead prereq, I'll make sure he gets his fair share of suffering and whining the way he likes it.

"Thank you sir, may I have another," ?
