College of Spies

Whether it be an iguaca mercenary who is fighting for both sides and passing along information as they do so, or a taínem or baracúden who betrayed their people to give information to the other side of the conflict in exchange for protection, bards known as spy trackers are experts in rooting out these traitors and exposing them for the liars they are.

Keen Eyes and Ears

At 3rd level, you gain advantage on all Wisdom (Insight) ability checks to determine a creature’s true allegiances and enemies. You also gain advantage on Wisdom (Perception) ability checks to see through disguises.

Pledge Allegiance

Also at 3rd level, as an action, you can form a bond with a number of willing creatures equal to your Charisma modifier. While under the effects of this bond, whenever you gain hit points, you can instead choose to heal a different bonded creature instead. As a reaction if you ever discover that one of these bonded creatures has lied to you, you may immediately revoke this bond from this creature and roll a Bardic Inspiration die. That creature has a penalty on attack rolls against all bonded creatures equal to the result of that roll for a number of rounds equal to your Charisma modifier.

Punish Lies

At 6th level, as a reaction whenever you are within 30 feet of a creature that tells a lie, and you detect it, you may cast vicious mockery against that creature. The creature automatically fails its Wisdom saving throw against this spell.

Deceptive Expression

At 14th level, you’ve learned many of the techniques that you have been trained to fight against. You gain advantage on Charisma (Deception) and Charisma (Persuasion) ability checks to convince a creature that you are their ally. If you successfully convince a creature that you are their ally using a Charisma (Deception) ability check, as an action at any point you may cast charm person on them without any signs of a spell being cast and when the spell ends, the creature does not know it has been charmed by you. Once you have used this ability, you must complete a short or long rest before doing so again.
