College of Choristers

Almost universally respected as the chroniclers of the world’s history, members of the Order of High Choristers are welcomed by all those who would seek to preserve favorable memories (and assiduously avoided by those who would rather their deeds go unnoticed). Choristers are able to tap directly into a shared collection of memories, passed down through the generations, ensuring an unbroken world story since the beginning of their order.

Bonus Proficiencies

When you join this college at 3rd level, you gain proficiency with two skills of your choice from among Arcana, History, Nature, and Religion.

You also learn to speak the old High Elvish tongue.

Mindvault

Also starting at 3rd level, you have advantage on any ability check you make that uses Arcana, History, Nature, or Religion to recall lore about a particular historical topic or area of study.

In addition, you can use a bonus action to expend one use of your Bardic Inspiration and tap into the collective mind of the choristers. When you do, choose any one skill or tool: For 10 minutes, you have proficiency with the chosen skill or tool.

Impose Doubt

At 6th level, you may use your knowledge of famed historical personages and events to make unfavorable comparisons to others, causing enemies to suffer misgivings regarding their own ability. You can use an action to expend one use of your Bardic Inspiration and impose doubt on a creature within 60 feet of you that you can see and that can hear you. The target must make a Charisma saving throw or be charmed by you for 1 minute. While it is charmed, the creature is also unable to take reactions and has disadvantage on all Charisma checks.

At the end of each of its turns, the target can make another Charisma saving throw. On a success, the effect ends on the target.

Groupthink

At 14th level, you add telepathic bond to your spells known.

It counts as a bard spell for you but doesn’t count against the number of bard spells you know. You can grant Bardic Inspiration dice via the link provided by your telepathic bond.
