College of Time[edit]

Bard Subclass

The College of Time uses its music to shape time with their rhythm. The beat of their song becomes the beat of the world.

Astral Chords[edit]

At 3rd level you no longer need a physical instrument to play music. You are able to pluck, strum, or tap the space around you and cause sounds and faint trails of light from where the sound emanates. The air around you ripples when you do this, distorted by sound.

When you become a member of this college, haste, slow, and time stop are added to your spell list and are considered bard spells for you. You must learn them as you would any other spell on the bard spell list.


At 3rd level, when you repeat your turns, you gain a point called Tempo. Every repeated turn gives you 1 point of Tempo. To repeat a turn you must take the same action, the same bonus action and move the same distance as in your previous turn. You cannot return to the starting position of your last turn, with your movement, to gain a tempo point. If you are not able to repeat your turn, you will lose all your tempo points. You may have a number of tempo points equal to your proficiency bonus. You add a number equal to your tempo points to all your damage rolls.


At 6th level, you can, as a bonus action expend one Bardic Inspiration die to choose a willing creature that can hear you within 60 feet, including yourself. The chosen creature is under the effect of your Tempo feature, gaining a number of Tempo points equal to the number rolled on your inspiration die. The creature can get a number of tempo points equal to your maximum. In addition, your maximum number of tempo points is equal to 8 when you gain this feature, increasing to 10 on the 10th level and to 12 on the 15th level.


At 14th level, you can expend one use of your Bardic Inspiration as a reaction to rewind time. After a creature within 60 feet that can hear you makes an attack roll, skill check, saving throw or death saving throw, you can use your reaction to make the creature reroll the result. You can choose to either add or subtract the number rolled on your Bardic Inspiration die to the new result.
