I have a friend of mine who will be joining a 3.5 campaign I'm hosting, and the character he's describing to me sounds an awful lot like the archer from Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance. I know that the game was based off of Forgotten Realms, so I was wondering if that was an actual class somewhere in the books, or if that was unique to the game.

I suppose I should word that as a question: is the Archer from Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance an actual, playable class in D&D 3.5, or was it specific to the game?

I've only played the game once, many years ago, so I had to do a bit of research to find out about the character... The IGN wiki calls him an Arcane Archer, which is a Prestige class in D&D 3.5 - this means you can't start as this class, you have to meet prerequisites by gaining levels in other (base) classes first.

And, as with most computer games, it doesn't exactly match the tabletop rules. He's kind of like the tabletop Arcane Archer, but not quite.
