Racial paragons represent the iconic members of their race. Their natural abilities are more developed than average members of their race, although they do not necessarily take part in the rigorous training as do most adventurers. Because paragon classes are tied to a particular race, a character may only take levels in the paragon class for his race. A maenad could not take levels in elan paragon, for example, because the maenad does not possess the same inherent abilities as the elan. Some of the paragon classes listed in this SRD represent the natural development of the psionic races on Rajrin, but it can easily be incorporated into any campaign setting with these races. Levels in racial paragon classes are not counted for XP penalties due to multiclassing.
