College of Mockery, Variant[edit]

Bards of the College of Mockery are most quick-witted and contemptuous Bards to have ever roamed the land. Always getting in the last word and roasting unfortunate souls to the point of literal death if they wish. While some may welcome such ludicrously brutal bards into their establishment there are others that would turn them away at the door and call the guard on them.
