War Chanter

A Bard College

War Chanters look to the tales and legends of heroes of the past for inspiration. They use those tales to spur their companions in battle. As a war chanter, you embrace those tales and stories as a tool to guide your own life and blade. You lead your companions into battle with rhythmic chants that draw out the virtues of courage, endurance, and strength. The roar of battle, the clash of steel on steel, battle cries, the thunder of marching feet, are all notes you weave into the symphony of war, which flows across the field like a rolling thunder cloud.

Your chants inspire your allies to greater deeds of valor. Your bardic inspiration can be used to grant temporary hit points to you as well as to your allies, and your own battle prowess can bolster your allies against injury. The weapon of choice of many war chanter’s is the polearm. This stems from the idea of standard-bearers, carrying a visual representation of their beliefs. As such, the weapon often has a small standard with intricate designs or a coat of arms that hangs from the end. Not only can these sow discord among your enemies when fluttering around in combat, but when they are placed skyward, they create a rallying point for your comrades in arms.
