Brother of the Shadow Hand[edit]

Lord Gareth was in his prime, a young, strong ruler. But not kind, and certainly never generous. He was, to be blunt, hated by the people, and frankly I had that same opinion of the man myself. But I still wouldn't have wished such a death on him, not something as horrible as that. What was so terrible, you ask? Why, he was found one morning, dead, and when the healer was called for, we discovered that his heart had been taken. Right out of his chest, without no mark or shred of magic to show it had been removed.
—Domon Itira, Manservant of the late Lord Gareth Inisk

Brothers of the Shadow Hand are often confused for simple rogues - or assassins - of tremendous skill, but this is not the case. The Brothers have taken the art of thievery to a supernatural degree, not only blending into the shadows as a mere rogue would, but actually becoming one with the shadows. They are feared by the very few who even recognize their existence, and are objects of admiration for thieves the world over.

Becoming a Brother of the Shadow Hand[edit]

Rogues who wish to take their abilities of theft, swindling, and combat to a higher level and strive towards it will be approached by the enigmatic Brotherhood of the Shadow and taught their secret ways.

Entry Requirements
Alignment: Any Chaotic
Skills: bluff 35, climb 35, diplomacy 35, disguise 35, Jump 35, sleight of hand 35, tumble 35.

Special: you must perform a theft large enough to get a small kingdom after you(like stealing the crown jewels, or the Princess's heart, etc) and survive for one month. After that, the Brotherhood of the Shadow will approach you in a group of four and initiate you. Your character will be occupied with retraining for one month.

Class Features[edit]

<-fluff about class features; class features should be listed in the order which they are gained. Abilities gained at the same level should be listed alphabetically->. All of the following are class features of the <-class name->.

Spellcasting: At <-each level? each level after first? Xth and Yth levels?->, you gain new spells per day and an increase in caster level (and spells known, if applicable) as if you had also gained a level in a spellcasting class to which you belonged before adding the prestige class level. You do not, however, gain any other benefit a character of that class would have gained. If you had more than one <-divine? arcane? prepared? spontaneous?-> spellcasting class before becoming a <-class name->, you must decide to which class to add each level for the purpose of determining spells per day, caster level, and spells known.

Manifesting: At <-each level? each level after first? Xth and Yth levels?->, you gain power points per day, an increase in manifester level, and new powers as if you had also gained a level in a manifesting class to which you belonged before adding the prestige class level. You do not, however, gain any other benefit a character of that class would have gained. If you had more than one manifesting class before becoming a <-class name->, you must decide to which class to add each level for the purpose of determining powers, manifester level, and powers known.

Spells: To cast a particular spell, you must have an <-relevant ability-> score of at least 10 + the spell's level. Your bonus spells are based on your <- ability ->. Saves to avoid the effects of your spells have a DC of 10 + the spell's level + your <-abbreviated ability-> bonus (if any).

You cast spells as a <-similar spellcasting class-> does. Table: <-class name-> Spells Known, below, details how many spells you can learn at each level. An epic <-class name->’s number of spells per day does not increase after 10th level. Choose your spells from the following list:

0—<-this spell->, <-that spell->, <-and the other spell->.

1st—<-this spell->, <-that spell->, <-and the other spell->.

2nd—<-this spell->, <-that spell->, <-and the other spell->.

3rd—<-this spell->, <-that spell->, <-and the other spell->.

4th—<-this spell->, <-that spell->, <-and the other spell->.

5th—<-this spell->, <-that spell->, <-and the other spell->.

6th—<-this spell->, <-that spell->, <-and the other spell->.

7th—<-this spell->, <-that spell->, <-and the other spell->.

8th—<-this spell->, <-that spell->, <-and the other spell->.

9th—<-this spell->, <-that spell->, <-and the other spell->.

Power Points/Day: Your ability to manifest powers is limited by the power points you have available. Your base daily allotment of power points is given on Table: The <-class name->. In addition, you receive bonus power points per day if you have a high <-relevant ability-> score (see Table: Ability Modifiers and Bonus Power Points). Your race may also provide bonus power points per day, as may certain feats and items. Your power points and bonus power points at each level do not increase automatically after 10th level.

Powers Known: You begin play knowing X <-class name-> powers of your choice. Each time you achieve a new level, you unlock the power of a new power. You can manifest any power that has a power point cost equal to or lower than your manifester level.

The total number of powers you can manifest in a day is limited only by your daily power points.

You simply know your powers; they are ingrained in your mind. You do not need to prepare them (in the way that some spellcasters prepare their spells), though you must get a good night's sleep each day to regain all your spent power points.

The Difficulty Class for saving thows against <-class name-> powers is 10 + the power's level + your <-abreviated relevant ability-> modifier.

Your powers known at each level do not increase automatically after 10th level.

You choose your powers from the following list (Exception: The Expanded Knowledge and Epic Expanded Knowledge feats allow you to learn powers from the lists of other classes.):

1st—<-this power->, <-that power->, <-and the other power->.

2nd—<-this power->, <-that power->, <-and the other power->.

3rd—<-this power->, <-that power->, <-and the other power->.

4th—<-this power->, <-that power->, <-and the other power->.

5th—<-this power->, <-that power->, <-and the other power->.

6th—<-this power->, <-that power->, <-and the other power->.

7th—<-this power->, <-that power->, <-and the other power->.

8th—<-this power->, <-that power->, <-and the other power->.

9th—<-this power->, <-that power->, <-and the other power->.

Maximum Power Level Known: This column determines the highest level power you can learn at this level.

To learn or manifest a power, you must have an <-relevant ability-> score of at least 10 + the power’s level.
