Want to apply for a prestige class that isn't open?
Please note a PrC that doesn't require an application must still fulfill the prerequisites and may need a permission token. If your character meets the requirements for a class below but cannot level up in that class ask any DM for a permission token.
In line with prestige class's description! For Arcane Archer that would mean using magic on arrows as often as you could. For weapon master single minded devotion to that one particular weapon. For divine PrC's acting in perfect accordance with dogma. It's useful to look up the PNP description of the Prestige Class for extra information over what NWN says. Some people like to support their PrC applications with Tales by the Fire or forum posts.
See Template below. This can be sent by PM to any active DM. Ideally when the application is received they'll say, "Ah, this PrC makes sense for that character."
After you submit your application, it is posted for all DMs to comment on. Some might be able to comment right away, others might have to make a point of watching your character to get to know them before they can say what they think.
The length of time it takes to get to get a decision is very variable. It could be fast if it is a well established character that a lot of DMs have seen a lot of (either yes OR no). If rejected, you can reapply at a later date.
The DM team might feel that the character has potential, but doesn't currently merit the PrC. If they haven't decided one way or the other the application will stay open until they can.
At any time you can ask your PGs to check on the application's progress for you, no more than once a week.
When a PrC application is approved, one DM MAY elect to run a PrC quest for the PC. The nature and difficulty of these quests depends on the PrC, the PC, and the DM. For some PrCs the quest might only take a couple of sessions. For one of the divine PrCs it is likely to be much longer, a real test of faith, grueling and possibly a life-changing experience for the PC. PrC Quest is no longer a part of earning PrC. It is presumed that you have been role playing towards the PrC from the point of character creation and thus generally is part of the approval process.
NB: when taking the Champion of Torm (read Divine Champion) PrC:
