From D&D Wiki
College of Repertoire
Bards of the College of Repertoire exercise a proficiency with mixing the arts of song and combat together. By singing of those since passed, they can bolster and embolden themselves and those around them to try and live up to the glorious heroes of eld, where each verse can lend itself to bringing out the power of a hero in each of us.
- Songs of the Ages
At 3rd level, you can use your action to start singing the verse of one of three songs that detail the trials and tribulations that heroes of old have faced to embolden yourself and your allies. Verses take 18 seconds (3 turns) to sing through, granting specific effects for as long as you are singing them, and ending at the end of your third turn.
|Ballad of the Ages||You and companions within 60 feet of you deal bonus thunder damage equal to your Charisma modifier during damage rolls.|
|Aria of the Ages||You and companions within 60 feet of you heal for an amount equal to your Charisma modifier during damage rolls.|
|Hymn of the Ages||You and companions within 60 feet of you gain a bonus to attack rolls equal to your Charisma modifier.|
You cannot sing a Song of the Ages if you are unable to sing or perform the somatic components of a spell, however singing a Song of the Ages doesn't require or break concentration, nor interrupt the somatic components of other spells. However, you do not add the bonuses granted by a Song of the Ages to spells you cast that have a somatic component. Additionally, the effects granted by your Songs of the Ages do not apply to creatures that cannot hear you sing.
At 6th level while singing a Song of the Ages, you can use your bonus action to make a ranged weapon attack against one creature within range. This attack does not include any bonuses to the damage roll such as your ability score modifier, excluding bonuses granted by a Song of the Ages. Additionally, when you land a Softbolt attack, roll 2d2.
- If you roll a total of 3, increase the bonus granted by a Song of the Ages by an additional +1 for as long as you are singing (maximum of +5).
- If you roll a total of 4 or more, increase the bonus granted by a Song of the Ages by an additional +2 for as long as you are singing (maximum of +5). Additionally, you regain one spent Bardic Inspiration.
- When making this roll, you can use your reaction to expend one Bardic Inspiration to roll an additional d2 (3d2 total).
The bonus granted by Softbolt continues between each Song of the Ages but is lost if you are unable to continue singing by any means, or you finish a turn without singing a Song of the Ages.
- Virtuous Finale
At 14th level, the bonus granted by Softbolt is doubled to +2 and +4 respectively, to a maximum Softbolt bonus equal to the die value of your Bardic Inspiration.
When you use your action to make a ranged weapon attack while singing a Song of the Ages, and you have a Softbolt bonus of at least +1, you can expend your Softbolt bonus as part of the same action to infuse your attack, reducing your Softbolt bonus to 0 after the attack roll is made. On a hit, the attack deals bonus thunder damage equal to the damage roll.
