Planesinger (Bard/Skald Class Template)
The City of 7 Seraphs

The tales of material realm are numerous and fascinating, although in the minds of some they are trite and ineffectual. These artists see the grand tapestry of the multiverse as extending far beyond the whims of mortals, and so harness their artistic talents to find and relay the stories of gods, angels, devils, and the many other mysterious beings which wander the expanse.

Planesinger is a class template suitable for the bard and skald classes. When converting a character to a planesinger, the character loses or changes the following class features:

  • Bard: A bard loses inspire competence, inspire greatness, inspire heroics, and deadly performance
  • Skald: A skald loses marching song. A skald does not gain rage powers at 9th and 15th levels. A skald does not gain the master skald class feature.

Planar Repertoire: The planesinger adds the following spells of the listed levels to his spell list.

  • 1st—protection from chaos/evil/good/law
  • 2nd—align weapon, communal protection from chaos/evil/good/law
  • 3rd—communal align weapon, magic circle against chaos/evil/good/law
  • 4th—chaos hammer, dimensional anchor, dismissal, holy smite, lesser planar binding, order’s wrath, unholy blight
  • 5th—commune, contact other plane, dispel chaos/evil/ good/law, planar adaptation
  • 6th—blasphemy, dictum, holy word, mass planar adaptation, planar binding, plane shift, word of chaos

Planar Performance: A planesinger gains the following bardic performance or raging song options.

  • Tamer of Realms: At 3rd level, a planesinger can use their performance to facilitate travel through strange and dangerous realms or deal with equally strange and dangerous denizens. An affected ally gains a +1 bonus on saving throws against environmental hazards and on caster level checks made to overcome spell resistance. This bonus increases by 1 at 7th level and every 4 levels thereafter, to a maximum of +5 at level 19.
  • Planar Infusion: At 9th level, the planesinger can call upon the powers of other realms to infuse his environment with extraplanar energies. So long as they continue to perform, they may apply or negate any of the following planar traits in a 30-foot radius around them: mildly aligned, strongly aligned, enhanced magic, impeded magic, limited magic, wild magic, air-dominant, earth-dominant, fire-dominant, water-dominant, negative dominant, and positive-dominant.
  • Essential Melody: At 15th level, the planesinger learns to harness and control the true essence of a being so as to bend it to their will. For a mortal, this may mean attacking their soul. For an outsider, this may involve warping the planar energies which hold them together. Any creature affected by this ability takes a -6 penalty on all of their ability scores so long as this performance continues. At 18th level, the planesinger can affect one additional creature with this performance.

Music of the Gods: At 20th level, the planesinger’s music proves able to charm the divine powers of the planes themselves, allowing him to work untold miracles. Once per day, the planesinger may cast miracle as a spell-like ability. In addition, the planesinger ignores any immunity to mind-affecting effects that creatures may possess.
