NPC Prestige Classes
The following is a list of prestige classes that are represented in the world but will not be made available to the PCs. In most cases this is because the prestige class is villainous; the other cases either have a special restriction (such as a racial pre-requisite for beholder) or is a class that does not lend itself to adventuring in this world (thereby falling into a “support” category). While the DM hopes that the PCs are heroic as opposed to diabolical, the villainous restriction is not based on a morality enforcement but instead is based on the game world’s culture. Several presitge classes commonly thought of as “evil” are permitted to the PCs; the restricted ones just will not be available through the role-playing means that the others are.
