    Question A very strange request.

    Does anyone know of a prestige class whose name starts with an 'H', gives independent casting based off wisdom, doesn't require a good alignment, and is at least ten levels long?

    This isn't a quiz, I'm not thinking of a particular class. I just want to know if such a class exists.

    Thanks for the help.

    Hunter of the Dead (Complete Warrior, pg. 42-44) fits all of those criteria.

    I'm guessing alliteration is involved...

    Or another player is doing very off things and he's trying to reverse engineer the build.

    Unlikely since it doesn't give any spellcasting (only progresses existing caster level).

    Funny, I actually once considered making an entire build around stuff that started with "war"... Warforged... Warblade... Warlock, warmage, warpriest... some of it goes together, some not so much...

    Sorry, that's actually an unofficial shortening of "ravenous murderhobo" so it doesn't start with H, and almost every character has levels of that anyway.

    Not sure why, though. It doesn't give any bonuses to saving throws, base attack bonus, or feats. It doesn't even progress spellcasting! About the only thing you get is a terrible class feature that requires you to steal/murder everything in sight.

    Ah, but when you roleplay that feature well, the DM rewards you with loot and experience!

    I guess Human and/or Half-something paragons are involved to compensate for the lack of base classes that start with "H"? Or is it me not recalling one?

And asking/answering questions about RPGs is a big part of why many of us are here, I know it's what I spend much of my time doing.

    I can get 75% of the way there pretty straightforwardly. Half-orc barbarian (which is even a fairly iconic combination). Now we just need a good martial prestige class that starts with O.
