College of the Troubadour

The finest courts in the Lost Lands employ troubadours to entertain and enlighten. These bards are more than just singers; they live to embody the highest virtues of chivalry, romance, and the heroics of legends. Their songs are meant to inspire, true, and entertain as well, but their greatest goal is to change the culture into one a bit more refined, a bit more humane, and maybe even a bit more beautiful.

Bonus Proficiencies

At 3rd level when you chose this college you gain proficiency in three skills or tools of your choice.

Courtly Love

Also at 3rd level, you may use your bardic inspiration to inspire courtly love. This is not something as simple as lust or the common bonds of marriage, but love on a higher plane. You may expend a use of bardic inspiration to cause two targets you can see to succeed at a Wisdom save or become charmed towards each other (you cannot be one of the targets). The two targets fall into courtly love towards each other, seeking to win the favor of their beloved and please them through grand gestures, composing songs, and winning victories in their name. This effect lasts 24 hours, and targets who succeed at their save do not know an attempt to charm them occurred.

A Night’s Entertainment

At 6th level, if you cast a spell with the ritual tag, you may perform a song during the casting. The ritual is hidden within the song, but can be discerned with an Intelligence (Arcana) check with a DC equal to your spell save DC. The ritual takes one hour longer to complete than normal, but does not consume any material components. You must have an audience of at least two living creatures to use this feature.

Questing Ballad

At 14th level you gain the geas spell. Targets who fail their save are under the effects for double the normal duration.
