Bard: changes to song duration



  • I suggest this change to bardsong duration. If possible, make this not apply to curse song, but if it is impossible to seperate the two, then i suggest it regardless. This will make lingering song a very good feat instead of being mandatory to the already feat starved bard class.

    I like this. We would have to discuss the math as a team though.

    I extra round for each level over 5 make perfect sense and is a nice little perk.

    Lvl 6 “average” bard that has invested in performance needs 12 skill total to achieve lvl 6 song benefits.

    would get 4 or 5 extra rounds

    • skill ranks- 9
    • Cha 12-14 - 1-2
    • Item/Feat 2-6 (call it 4 for average)

    Lvl 8 “average” bard that has invested in performance needs 15 skill total to achieve lvl 8 song benefits

    Would get 6 extra rounds.
    Skill ranks- 11
    Cha 16- 3 (Magic items, eagles splendor, lvl up etc)
    Item/fear 2-6 ( call it 4 for average)

    Pure class bard only and I am sold. We can adjust the performance up or down from per 3 as needed.

    All this assumes:

    • scripting is possible @Strife-and-Discord
    • the team agrees
    • we would get to it when we can so prepare to be patient


  • Yes, i would NOT want this for anything but pure class personally, way too open to multiclassing benefits that way.

    Hash out a clear writeup and agree on it and I will script it.
    Mind that if it becomes complex I can still do it but it will take abit more time as I am focused on a bigger system.

    I mean, if noone disagrees with this, i don't see anything against it going in the way it is suggested.

    I'll put together exactly what it should be with all the parameters and exclusions needed on the DM forum. Need to have a team discussion for this stuff.

    Also, I just realized the when we first talked the we would want to exclude this from Curse Bard songs. Something I forgot to include in my original "this is a fine idea" post.

    I'll close this topic off now and re-open the convo for the Team.

    Cheers
