Cayzle's Little Splat Book of 3E D&D Bards

So what's in here that's worth the free download? Over 13,000 words in 28 sweetly formatted pages! Two prestige classes, eight new magical musical instruments, and tons of advice to help you not only get the most bang out of your bard, but also to understand the theoretical underpinnings of the class.

Here are the chapter headings, to give you a feel for the contents:

Intro: A Note to Players and Dungeon Masters ... Fair warning to users of this book, with advice on how to use these rules wisely.
Chapter One: The Casting Bard ... How to get the most out of your bardic spell selection.
Chapter Two: The Maximized Bard ... A mathematical demonstration that bards are simply not as craptacular as they say.
Chapter Three: The Multiclassed Bard ... The best ways to mix your bard up with other classes and prestige classes.
Chapter Four: The Equipped Bard ... Pick the best magical instrument for your bard, or try new ones.
Chapter Five: The Prestigious Bard ... Here are two new options, fine for other classes, but for bards they really shine.
Endnotes: Credits, Notices, and Thanks

The core ideas in this ebook date way back to the second blog post I wrote on this site, in November 2004, so in a way this ebook has been 14 years in the making. Still, the prestige classes -- the Bullroarer and the Dance-Fighter -- and all the new magic items are brand new and unpublished (so far) anywhere else. Also, I do have planned a Pathfinder First Edition version of this book, and I promise it will take me less than 18 years to write.

Cayzle's Little Splat Book of Prestige & Class

So what's in here that's worth the free download? Over 30,000 words in 80+ sweetly formatted pages! Twelve prestige classes designed for the Pathfinder RPG, plus the liontaur race. Here are the names of the prestige classes, but just the names! You'll have to download the FREE PDF to find out more.
  • The Whisperer in Kind
  • The Adventuring Hero
  • The Improved Assassin
  • The Spellspinner
  • The Olde Tyme Bard
  • The Wingchild
  • The Wandslinger
  • The Fighting Trickster
  • The Mentalist
  • The Commander
  • The Flibbertigibbet
  • The Summerkin
The savvy reader of this site (you know who you are) will recognize some familiar names in the list above. In fact, most of these prestige classes got their start in screeds written up to 10 years ago. However, four of the twelve are brand new, and all have been (quite) extensively revamped.
