Canaith Lyrist

This class requires DM approval by submitting an application.

Warrior, thief, spy, poet, woodland champion: the Canaith lyrist is a legendary figure who serves as the herald and teacher to great kings, the champion of the common folk, and the keeper of lore long forgotten elsewhere. Only the best and brightest are invited to become Canaith lyrists, and those who eventually win the approval of the Canaith College's masters are remarkable individuals indeed, skilled in swordplay, magic, and diplomacy.

Class Abilities:

If you had more than one spellcasting class before becoming a Canaith lyrist, you must decide which class gains the increased casting ability.

- Bardic Music: A Canaith lyrist adds her lyrist level to her bard level to determine the number of times per day she can use her bardic music, which bard songs she knows, and the power of those abilities.
