Brief update and a 5e PrC

Wow, I haven’t posted anything in a while. I’ve been REALLY busy with school. Anyway, after the D&D 5th edition Prestige Class UA came out, I worked up a conversion of the Bladesinger PrC. Probably not that awesome, but maybe, I dunno. It’s not playtested yet, but it’s at the end of the post.

So, we had another D&D session earlier. I’ll have the Session Five transcript up soon. Also, I’m gonna make another Linguistics post sometime this month, I’ve got some ideas rolling around in my head.

Anyway. The Bladesinger

Bladesingers are those of Fey origin (usually elves or half-elves) who have woven together arcane magic and swordplay to create a fluid and majestic fighting style. While the majority are Eldritch Knights or multiclass fighter/spellcasters, any elf, half-elf, or other fey who meets the prerequisites can become one. Bard/rogues and even witch/barbarians are just as possible.

Archetype advancement

Your levels of bladesinger stack with your main character class in determining when you acquire your archetype abilities

Spellcasting

If you have a spellcasting class, your levels of bladesinger and your main spellcasting level stack in terms of how many spells per day you can cast, and what level of spell you can cast. If you have more than one spellcasting class, choose one of them to stack with your bladesinger levels.

Bladesinger’s Defense

While wielding a longsword or rapier in one hand (and nothing else) and wearing light or no armor, a bladesinger gets a Reflex bonus to AC equal to their class level, not exceeding their Intelligence bonus.

Lesser Spellsong

When wielding a longsword or rapier in one hand (and nothing in the other), a Bladesinger of level 2 or above can take 10 when making a concentration check to maintain a spell.

Song of Celerity

Once per day, while wielding only a longsword or rapier in one hand (and nothing in the other), a bladesinger of 3rd level or higher may quicken a single spell of up to 2nd level with a casting time of 1 action as if he had used the Quicken Spell Metamagic ability. At 5th level, he can quicken a single spell of up to 4th level.

Ability Bonus

As one becomes a bladesinger, one cannot help but become smarter and more agile. At 2nd and 4th levels add +1 to both your Dexterity and Intelligence scores.

Song of Fury

When a fifth-level bladesinger chooses the attack action with a longsword or rapier in one hand, (and nothing in the other), he can use his bonus action to make one extra attack in a round, but this attack and each other attack made in the round have disadvantage. This also affects attacks of opportunity he might make before his next turn.
