Question on Spells[edit]

The header says "Spells per Day/Spells Known" but under it at each level it says, "+1 bard caster level". Does this mean that the character only gets a caster level increase and not any new spells? —Sledged 14:51, 21 September 2006 (MDT)

I would say an increase with the spells only. Just my thoughts, and I see you already changed it so it is like that. Thanks. --Green Dragon 22:07, 21 September 2006 (MDT)
Actually, the only thing I changed was the format, the text is still the same. It should be noted in the class features whether new spells are gained (e.g. the archmage) or the character just gets a caster level increase (e.g. the hierophant). —Sledged 15:42, 22 September 2006 (MDT)
It gains a bard caster level. This means a Battle Heral both learns new spells and raises its caster level as if it had gained another level as a bard. This is to prevent wizards and sorcerers from multiclassing into the PrCs and receiving the benefit of extra spells. Yes, there is a precedent for this, there are a few PrCs around that only raise druid caster levels around, and while making a bard-oriented PrCs, I came to the conclussion that the reason there are so few, and so crappy PrCs for bards is because most of them just say "+1 caster level" and you could add it to wizards or sorcerers, giving them (most likely) d6`s HD, a decent BaB, better saves, etc. This problem is cleanly avoided by just saying "bard caster level". Done, end of the problem. --Maglad 12:07, 6 November 2008 (UTC)
