The best of the best.
Making a Perfect Performer
There are Bards, and then there are Perfect Performers.
The best performers do so under great stress. Although their music is better than that of a bard, it has a chance of failure due to the reputation that precedes the performer. However, a wide range of effects are represented by his music.
The most important attributes for this class are charisma and dexterity. The spellcasting of his class derives its bonuses from charisma and dexterity is needed for skills and abilities.
Any race may become a candidate for this class, although races with high charisma tend to be more successful.
