Bardic Performance

3rd-Level Lore Feature

You gain the following Bardic Performance option.

Bardic Performance: Ode to Heroes

You invoke songs and stories of legend to inspire your allies to new heights of heroism and to intimidate your foes. When you use your Bardic Performance feature, choose STR, DEX, CON, INT, WIS, or CHA. While your performance lasts, allies within range have advantage on ability checks that use that ability and enemies within range have disadvantage on ability checks that use that ability.

Expanded Talent List

3rd-Level Lore Feature

When you gain a new talent, you can select it from either the magic or the technical talents list.

Jack of All Trades

3rd-Level Lore Feature

You make it your business to collect lessons and practical guidance from the stories, songs, and cultures you encounter. You can add half your PB, rounded down, to any ability check you make that doesn’t already include your PB.

Swift Ritual

7th-Level Lore Feature

You can cast an Arcane ritual you know as an action, instead of using the ritual’s listed casting time. You must still provide all other components necessary for the casting. Once used, you can’t use this feature again until you finish a long rest.

Magical Rites

11th-Level Lore Feature

You learn two ritual spells of your choice from any source list. Each spell you choose must be of a circle for which you have spell slots, as shown in the Bard Progression table. The chosen rituals count as Arcane spells for you and aren’t included in the number in the Rituals Known column of the Bard Progression table.

Peerless Skill

15th-Level Lore Feature

When you make an ability check and have at least one use of your Bardic Inspiration feature available, you can use it to roll a Bardic Inspiration die and add the number rolled to your ability check. If you succeed on the check, you get to keep the Bardic Inspiration die, but if you fail the check, the die is expended.
