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.
1 Bladesinger’s Defense, +4 mana
2 Lesser Spellsong, Ability Bonus
3 Song of Celerity, +4 mana
4 +4 mana, Ability Bonus
5 Song of Celerity, Song of Fury
Race: Any Fey
Base Attack Bonus: +3
(OR 15 in one, 10 in the other)
Ability to cast arcane spells of 1st level.
Proficiency with longsword or rapier.
Proficiency with Acrobatics
Character Level 5th: It requires training and commitment to become a Bladesinger.
As a bladesinger, you gain the following class features.
Hit Dice: 1d6 per bladesinger level
Hit Points per Level: 2d3 (or 4) + your Constitutional modifier per Bladesinger level.
Saving Throws: Dexterity
Skills: Gain expertise in Acrobatics
Armor: Light armor
Your levels of bladesinger stack with your main character class in determining when you acquire your archetype abilities
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.
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.
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.
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.
