When you advance beyond level 10, 20, 30 and 40 you will be given the option to multi-class. To do so, simply type <advance NEW_CLASS> in an area that allows advancement and you will become a “multi-classed character”. When you reach the new bracket, you may choose to advance in your new or old class or even pick up a third. Some classes have multi-class restrictions noted in their help-files. Note that you must meet the requirements of all of your classes.

Prestige classes are similar to standard classes, but their abilities are more specialized and often more powerful. Some prestige classes have steep requirements, such a minimum amount of levels in a base class, a certain feat, skill or similar.
To acquire a prestige class when you advance, simply type <advance CLASS>. You can choose only one prestige class to multiclass into.
If you were to type <advance shadow_adept> for example, you would become a 20th level mage/1st level shadow adept. The class feats listed for prestige classes at level 1, level 4 and level 7 are automatically granted when you attain the correct level in the prestige class. They are free feats and you don't need to add them yourself. In almost all cases, when you advance in a prestige class, you also gain spells per day and spells known as if you had advanced in the base class required for the prestige class.
Only one set of 10 levels in a single prestige class is allowed per character.
