Modding a Bard?

ThacoBellThacoBell Member Posts: 10,031
I've been entertaining the idea of running a Bard that uses druidic magic, rather than arcane, to make it more inline with the original Bard class. Does anyone know of any mods that does so? Heck, if anyone knows some EEKeeper wizardry to jury rig one I'd be all ears. I've tried using EEKeeper to memorize divine spells, but it doesn't seem to work.

    Not exactly a 1E/Celtic-style bard, but in that direction:
    Component 480:

    Add the MEISTERSINGER bard kit

    MEISTERSINGER: These bards wander the woodlands, charming animals with their melodies and helping druids and rangers to protect nature. They are the enemies of ruthless hunters and trappers, striving against such activities with their animal allies, beguiling music, and nature-based magic.

    – May use the ranger's Animal Empathy ability.
    – May use the 'Summon Rabbit' innate ability.
    – May cast the following druid spells: Cure Light Wounds, Entangle, Sanctuary, Shillelagh, Barkskin, Charm Person/Mammal, Resist Fire/Cold, Slow Poison, Remove Paralysis, Cure Disease, Zone of Sweet Air, Summon Insects, Cure Serious Wounds, Call Woodland Being, Leser Restoration, Mass Cure, Chaotic Commands, Insect Plague, Animal Summoning III, and False Dawn.

    – May only gain proficiency in weapons appropriate for use by druids.

    @subtledoctor Is it possible to install kits from Might and Guile without the rule changes?

    Yes it is. M&G is one of my favorite mods and I never use the overhaul components.

    I think the best way of doing what you want is making a druid kit that uses some of the bards features. IDK if you would be able to use the Bard Song, but it worth a try.

    Actually, with a little patience, you can make a bard and use the GA_SPELL to give it the druid spells at the correct level. Also, you'll need to edit every single spell to change its flag from Divine to Arcane.

    They would show in your arcane spellbook if I'm imagining right.

    @subtledoctor probably knows an easier way.

    Yup. Some of the larger rule overhauls are at the beginning, but you can simply hit "[N]o" a few times and then you will be asked about individual kits.

    M&G looks really interesting. Thanks for the info!
