The Black Blood Cultist is a prestige class of Faerûn. The evil barbarian hordes of The North and other uncivilized, wild regions of the Realms came to idolize the shapeshifting worshipers of Malar, the People of the Black Blood. These Cultists of the Black Blood draw power from this idolization, becoming increasingly bestial and imitating the corrupt nature of their masters.
Cultists of the Black Blood gain a variety of abilities that increase the power and frenzied ferocity upon their constant attacks on civilized beings of all races.
- Feral Rage
- A Cultist of the Black Blood strengthens the bones and muscles of his fingers and strengthens his nails in order to use them as viable weapons in battle. As the Cultist becomes more experienced in his ability to enter a bloodthirsty rage, he can use his teeth as another natural weapon, as well as rend his enemies with both clawed hands.
- A Cultist of the Black Blood can use his teeth to snap an enemy's neck as killing blow while in a rage.
- Feral Form
- An experienced Cultist of the Black Blood can use his natural weapons even while not raging.
