    I don't have any ideas at the moment, but it would be cool to think of some to be added into the BRCS-revised. If someone thinks of some, they should probably start a new thread for each one, so that we could more easily develop them. As far as theory goes, maybe they should be mostly 5-level prestige classes, since birthright is a low-level world.

    Well, this is not quite necessary: consider a prestige class that approaches the 5th-level character and has 10 levels... Such a prestige class would really be more than fine for Birthright in my opinion.

    Prestige Classes were originally going to go in the Atlas of Cerilia, going with the idea that they were designed to fit with certain regions or organisations that they then might as well be in the same document as the description of the organisation.

    I'm not particularly tied to that idea thought.

    What I might do is release all of the currently submitted prestige classes for discussion by the community so you can see where we stand and pick out those that you like and suggest changes for those that you don't. It will take a little while to put all that info together, but I'll see what I can do.

    Most until now created prestige classes are actually 10 level based ones, some few have 5 levels...

    But there is no need, requirement or even real reason for them to be.

    I must agree with the Jew as one of the problems I've been having with prestige classes is the low level theme of BR. For example, I wanted a prestige class for the Knights of Moonstrike Keep to give them a bit of flavour, but the entire fighting wing of the keep can't (shouldn't?) be 6th+ level, but if it's only the "command team" then much of the flavour I wanted is gone - result: a 5 level PrC with 3rd level minimum requirements.

    I just can't think of a better solution

    I have seen that in a few of the supplements that they have prestige classes that progress 3 levels,some that progress 5 levels most that progress 10 level and in the latest dragon magazine they even had some racial classes that proceeded to 9'th level so I do not see why we could not have some three level prestige classes that would require something like maybe 2 previous
    levels in another class to gain entry into them...Maybe I am totally off-base here but IMO that would probably be the best answer especially considering like a few of you have said that birthright is basically a low level world...

    Use the dojo theory of training certain feats. That is, an organization,

    like the Knights of Moonstrike, have their own feat (or series of feats),

    and you can only learn it from the KoM, and they don`t just teach anyone.

    After all, its a secret - praise Ruornil.

    The problem with PrC`s and all their cool flavor and BR`s low level setting

    caused me to abandon the idea that nearly everyone was below 10th level.

    I`ve bumped my ceiling up to 16th level. Too many neat feats, series of

    feats, PrC`s, and multi-class cominations require higher level characters.

    Much more then 2e, 3e/d20 flowers after the lower levels. So, it may be

    prudent to re-think the low level nature of BR, without allowing the

    pendulum to swing all the way to the other side. I used to generally cap

    CR`s at 5, now 10 is closer to my upper limit, but I am also a bit more

    flexible in higher level CR encounters.

    One could combine the concepts and have that feat be a prereq for the

    prestige class.
