The Forgotten Realms: Cormyr DM team has determined that as of this announcement, the Red Dragon Disciple prestige class will require DM team approval to take. This will expand the list of prestige classes requiring application to Red Dragon Disciple, Purple Dragon Knight, Shadowdancer, Shifter, and Red Wizard.
Note that Dragon Disciples existing prior to this announcement will not be affected and need not submit an application. Characters that have not yet taken Dragon Disciple levels, but intended to in the future, will need to submit the Prestige Class Application found here:
Additional considerations are possible for characters who were actively pursuing, or close to achieving, the Dragon Disciple class prior to this announcement. Submit an application to a member of the team as soon as possible if you believe this pertains to your active character.

The DM Team has revisited FRC's Policy for clerics going through a change of faith.
The historic policy required clerics changing their faith and needing adjustments to domains and alignment to restart their characters at first level. This policy was found to be too strict and not consistently applied over time.
We have adopted the below revision to more appropriately reflect the severity of a specific cleric's change of faith and to be consistently applied going forward.
Clerics may change their faith but this is a significant choice. A cleric’s faith and their patron’s ethos are central aspects of the character. The differences between the old and new faiths will drive the severity of conversion.
The severity is measured by adjustments needed to minimally satisfy alignment and cleric domains required by the new faith plus additional cost for the toll taken by this fundamental change, as follows:
- 20% cleric levels to go through a change of faith conversion.
- 20% cleric levels if one Domain is required to change.
- 20% cleric levels if another Domain is required to change.
- 20% cleric levels if an alignment change on the good / evil axis is required.
- 20% cleric levels if an alignment change on the law / chaos axis is required.
The total percentage will be applied to the character’s cleric levels to reflect difficulty and cost of conversion, with any fractions rounded down in favor of the character.
Players of clerics changing faith will need to coordinate with a DM to adjust the character and reflect the conversion to the new faith.
Please ask a DM if there are any questions about a cleric's change of faith or share your question in the DM Q&A section here:
