I thought some of these really lacked flavour, so I decided to theme it around performance, more fitting for a bard. Also the title is what I kept misreading it as.


Resourceful Musician


As a master of stories, stage & sound, you see magic as a performance; telling a tale, and spell casters as playwrights and musicians. A natural performer, you have learned to dabble in theater, and your ability to help drive a narrative with your music extends to the battlefield.


To aid your ability in enabling a tale to enfold, you pursue new depths in your studiesl into the nature of perfomance, the arcane and how they reshape the world in which you live. You begin to hear the rhythms that direct the forces around you, that shape history and even reality itself.


You have a strong connection to planes such as the feywild where the arcane has a more profound influence on reality. While you draw from the old you are always looking to new and more fantastical things, remixing ideas to tell the best tale.



Theory & Notation (11th Level) -


Hearing songs and reading plays inspired by arcane heroes of old motivates further study into their exploits. Slowly, their tales start to become one with your own as the greater story of the arcane's influence is revealed to you, and you see the patterns and formulas behind each arcane path's existence.
 


Reprise (11th Level)


(as undaunted action)



Transposition (16th level)


Through advanced character study; you learn to assume the mindset and thus the powers of another type of spellcaster, replacing one of your own to better suit your needs and abilities.
