Yesterday, I didn’t post a compendium class in the Bardic Compendium Class Contest, as I was too exhausted. Sorry ’bout that. I’ll post two today then! I’ll post the second in an other thread
The winner of yesterday was Wynand Louw with his suggestion of “Alpen Horn and Yodeling”. This should prove interesting…
When you have acquired a horn from an Ibex and fashioned it into an instrument you may take this move the next time you level:
Horn of the Mountain
When you blow the horn of the Ibex as a part of your Arcane Performance, the spirits of the mountains awakens. Instead of choosing one from the list of Arcane Perfomance, you may ask the spirits to protect an ally, giving them +1 forward to defy danger.
Once you’ve taken “Horn of the Mountain,” the following moves count as class moves for you. In addition to your normal list of moves, you may choose from this list when you gain a level.
Long Distance Communications
When you sing a message with repeated changes of pitch in every note say what the message contains and who you wish to hear it, then roll+CHA. On a hit your target receives the message. On a 10+ the target may also respond in kind. On a 7-9 choose 1:
– The target cannot respond to your message.
– You attract unwanted attention.
Charge of the Ibex
When you blow your ibex horn and then throw it at an enemy it temporarily turns into a charging ibex. On a 7-9 it has the forceful tag and deals your damage the enemy, after which it reverts to a horn. On a 10+ it also comes back to you before it reverts to a horn.
Call of the Eagle
When you blow your horn and cry out to the skies a Giant Golden Eagle will come to your aid. It is large enough to carry two riders and will serve loyally as a mount. It will leave for its nest when dismissed.
Links for inspiration
As can be seen, I went with a mountain theme here. The entry move was partly inspired by a conversation with Tim Franzke.
