A Khajit Bard of Courtesy

College of Courtesy

Courtly Manners

3rd-level College of Courtesy feature

You have been trained in the ways of court to understand the world around you and have an undeniable understanding of etiquette. You gain proficiency in the Insight or Persuasion skill (your choice), and you have advantage on Willpower (Insight) or Intelligence (History) checks to understand or recall cultures or social norms, and to gain insight in people’s agendas.

Battlefield Etiquette

3rd-level College of Courtesy feature

You learn how to manipulate the battlefield through the use of militaristic traditions and polite suggestions. As a bonus action, you can expend one of your Bardic Inspiration dice in order to produce one of the following options:

Parley. You cast calm emotions without expending magicka.

Duel. You force a number of hostile creatures up to your Personality attribute modifier (minimum of 1) that can hear and understand you to duel an ally of your choice. Each target must make a Willpower saving throw equal to your spell save DC. On a failed save, the target has disadvantage on attacks made against any creature that isn’t that ally for the next minute.

Discipline. You bestow your allies with temporary hit points equal to your bard level + your Personality modifier for the next minute.

Graceful Redress

6th-level College of Courtesy feature

When you or an ally that you can see and hear fails a Deception, Intimidation, or Persuasion skill check, you can use your reaction to expend one use of Bardic Inspiration. Roll a Bardic Inspiration die and add the number rolled to the skill check, using the new result in place of the failed one, possibly changing the result.

Additionally, you when you make any Personality skill check, you can add a Bardic Inspiration die to the roll without expending a use. Once you use this feature in this way, you can’t use it again until you finish a short or long rest.

Diplomatic Immunity

14th-level College of Courtesy feature

Your reputation will keep hostile humanoids reluctant from attacking you and your allies. If you or one of your allies hasn’t attacked yet, an enemy must succeed on a Personality saving throw equal to your spellcasting save DC to be able to attack you or your allies on that turn.
