Prestige Class

The design of Erenel prestige classes aims to provide exciting specialized class options by covering thematic concepts in a broader term outside of single feats or generalized subclasses. Prestige classes should have character investment leading up to gaining a level in prestige!
 
Prestige classes are designed to allow more in-depth customization of your 5th edition character and represent additional abilities and empowered features. They do not take the place of subclasses and instead build alongside the subclass choice. When using Prestige classes in your game, the dungeon master should consider using the prestige class as a reward or backstory goal.   Once the player has unlocked a prestige class, they can choose to prestige while leveling up, gaining all features up to their current level. However, choosing to prestige is not without its cons – the player gives up ASI (ability score improvements) at certain levels dependant upon the prestige class.   Once a prestige class is selected, it is locked in with any previous ASI slots lost retroactively, and replaced by the prestige class features at that level. If the prestige class does not provide a feature at a class level which would offer an ASI (ability score improvement), the player takes the ASI.   Example: If you’ve taken +2 in an ability score at 4th level but prestige at 7th level, you lose the +2 ability score and gain the prestige class feature at 4th level.
 

Prerequisites

Taking up a prestige class requires a minimum character level, a minimum score in at least one ability, as well as requiring the completion of a specific deed before being able to take up the prestige class.   You cannot have class levels in other classes when you take up a prestige class and cannot multi-class after you prestige.

All Classes

Whiplash

A master at controlling the battlefield, those trained as a Whiplash can turn a simple whip into a whirling weapon of death.
Available only for Gamingbrew Patrons. If you are a Patron the sub class will appear below.    

Barbarian

Hulk Hand

The remains of titanic beings are being discovered across Erenel, hidden in the Ethereal Plane for centuries as their bodies decompose. Thanks to their primal ferocity, Barbarians who plunge a hand into the preserved gore of a titan can harness a portion of the Titans remaining life force. Whichever hand is submerged becomes invulnerable and grows in size and strength while the Barbarian’s rage consumes them.
Available only for Gamingbrew Patrons. If you are a Patron the sub class will appear below.  

Warden

Wardens are barbarians who have learned to channel their rage intuitively, becoming vigilant guardians, and bastions for the weak. Warden’s possess extraordinary toughness to protect a particular cause related to the character. Barbarians who have become Wardens have likely faced severe hardships leading to their rage, but have learned to focus their strength to protect their tribe, a sacred grove or a loved one.
Available only for Gamingbrew Patrons. If you are a Patron the sub class will appear below.    

Bard

Jester

Bards who follow the Jester path are joking pranksters who spread joy and laughter with a sharp tongue. Jesters possess the unique ability to captivate an audience with their antics while never taking themselves too seriously.   The magic of the fey flows through them, thanks to either a deep fey connection or having studied under a fey tutor. That same whimsical, yet dangerous personality of the fey, also guides Jesters as they prance before an audience while remaining in control of their surroundings.
Available only for Gamingbrew Patrons. If you are a Patron the sub class will appear below.    

Cleric

Ever Eyes

Although the Architect's celestial form is gone, Al'Madoon's sacrifice is not forgotten. The Ever Eyes scour Erenel in search of remnants of an Era before, in hopes of reviving the Creator and learning more about life before the Great Sacrifice.
Available only for Gamingbrew Patrons. If you are a Patron the sub class will appear below.    

Druid

Summers Dream

Interactions with Fey creatures can be both exciting and dangerous. Druids who learn from Fey who inhabit the Summer's Dream draw on this knowledge to influence the minds of those around them.   While both illuminating and captivating, a Summers Dream Druid gradually takes a more Fey-like appearance, thanks to the resonating interaction required to cultivate an apprenticeship with such chaotic creatures.
Available only for Gamingbrew Patrons. If you are a Patron the sub class will appear below.    

Fighter

Coven Guardian

You've either willingly or unwillingly sworn to protect a Hag Coven. You serve the hags in whatever dark schemes they deem worthy of your time until they relinquish you from service. Unfortunately, death is not an escape from the clutches of a Hag Coven.
Available only for Gamingbrew Patrons. If you are a Patron the sub class will appear below.    

Valkyrie

Beautiful warriors full of majesty and might, Valkyrie stand triumphant with wide-spread wings and mithril armor ready to swing their angelic weapon in the name of the Primal Deity they’ve sworn allegiance to in death. Valkyrie resides in the chambers of their Primal, protecting the Primal’s interests and continuously searching for souls in the Ethereal Plane worthy of providing service.
Available only for Gamingbrew Patrons. If you are a Patron the sub class will appear below.    

Metalmancer

Grease Monkey

Metalmancers who have chosen to Augment their Ashard Golem into a mechanical construct are known across Erenel as Grease Monkeys. Using the Ashard alloy as a power infuser, the Grease Monkey further enhances their golem ally in powerful ways.
Available only for Gamingbrew Patrons. If you are a Patron the sub class will appear below.    

Monk

Rune Bearer

Primal runes in their raw form offer mysterious magics untouched by the Bond. These raw forms can be represented by chaotic shapes and activated with a continuous source of lifeblood.   Rune bearer monks have learned to withstand the pain of engraving runes onto their own body to provide the source needed to activate primal runes and master their power. Rune bearers now live a life of adventure in pursuit of other hidden runes in hopes of discovering true meaning behind their mysterious origin.
Available only for Gamingbrew Patrons. If you are a Patron the sub class will appear below.    

Paladin

Templar

As a knight of Rezmir and champion of Light and True Law, you understand there cannot be peace without justice. Rezmir's justice, not falsehoods championed by the Creed's false ideals.
Available only for Gamingbrew Patrons. If you are a Patron the sub class will appear below.    

Ranger

Dragon Rider

Many Rangers dream of soaring through the clouds atop a dragon steed, the wind on their face, and freedom before them. Those who become Dragon Riders do not dream of this life, they live it. Typically, guardians of a realm, Dragon Riders exert the might of their trained dragon to keep the peace and protect what they hold dear.   A Ranger who follows the path of a Dragon Rider will form a primal bond with an unhatched dragon egg, allowing the dragon to imprint onto them while raising the wyrmling from birth.
Available only for Gamingbrew Patrons. If you are a Patron the sub class will appear below.    

Rogue

Tide Captain

A true captain of the Crimson Shores needs both know-how and ruthlessness to lead a ship. Whether privateering, exploring, or pirating, the Tide Captain is precisely where they belong, a Captain’s wheel in hand, and the ocean’s horizon before them.
Available only for Gamingbrew Patrons. If you are a Patron the sub class will appear below.    

Shaman

Witch Doctor

Sorcerer

Siren

Unpredictable and often dangerous, Sorcerers who undergo a transformation into the Siren act on impulse. Most often associated with the Siren is the enchanting song they sing to attract “friends.” The captivating songs are likened to a magical melody, enchanting those who hear it, luring them into a false sense of security.
Available only for Gamingbrew Patrons. If you are a Patron the sub class will appear below.  

Warlock

Willing Host

You've allowed a strange being to dwell within you. Others would call your companion a parasite, but you welcome the compensation paid for powerful Eldritch knowledge.

Wizard

Clutch Master

Seeing a Wizard with a faithful familiar is not out of the ordinary as the find familiar spell is a popular spellbook addition taught in the many wizarding universities in Erenel. The Clutch Master takes this idea much further, raising a brood of dragon familiars. These loyal companions stand ready to tear enemies apart or to merely provide companionship on a relaxing rain-filled evening.
