Voice of the Gods
There are bards who walk on this plane who are beloved by all the gods. They're generally beloved by people, and can commune with their gods. Though they are beloved, a voice of the gods also have many enemies such as cult leaders and some clerics who deem them a threat to their own gods. A voice of the gods generally wears a mask to conceal their identity so that they can elude their enemies.

You learned how to channel the power of your spells by the sound of your voice and music.
You know three cantrips of your choice from the bard or sorcerer spell list. You learn additional bard cantrips of your choice at higher levels, as shown in the Cantrips Known column of the Voice of the Gods table.
- Preparing and Casting Spells
The Voice of the Gods table shows how many spell slots you have to cast your spells of 1st level and higher. To cast one of these spells, you must expend a slot of the spell's level or higher. You regain all expended spell slots when you finish a long or short rest.
- Spellcasting Ability
Charisma is your spellcasting ability for your Voice of the Gods spells. You use your Charisma whenever a spell refers to your spellcasting ability. You use your Charisma modifier when setting the saving throw DC for a bard/sorcerer spell you cast and when making an attack roll with one.
Spell save DC = 8 + your proficiency bonus + your Charisma modifier
Spell attack modifier = your proficiency bonus + your Charisma modifier
Beginning at 1st level, you can use an action to cast healing word at 1st level without expending a spell slot. You cannot use this feature again until you finish a short or a long rest.
Beginning at 2nd level, you can channel the power of your voice into your weapons. As an action, you can command two melee weapon that you are holding to levitate three to ten feet above the ground within one to five feet around you. As a bonus action, you can command your weapon to do one of the following, and only one per turn.
- Move with a flying speed of 60 feet
- Attack a creature within range
- Fly back to you, this cannot be done if the sword is more than 120 feet away
When the weapon attacks a creature, it must make a Dexterity saving throw against your spell save DC. If it fails, the weapon hits and deals it's normal damage + 1d6 of the same damage type.
A levitated weapon affected by this feature can be grabbed by a creature, however, if you use a command on a held levitated weapon, the creature must make a Dexterity saving throw. If it succeeds, then your command doesn't work on the weapon and you cannot command it again that turn. If the creature fails, then the weapon pulls itself from the creature's grip and follows your command. If a levitated weapon affected by this feature reaches 300 feet or more away from you, it no longer becomes affected by this feature and falls to the ground, unless held by another creature.
When you reach 6th level, the weapon deals an extra 2d6 of the same damage type. In addition, you can command three melee weapons that is on your body to levitate, and you can use a single bonus action to command each weapon. When you reach 10th level, you can command four melee weapons with a single bonus action, and the extra damage goes up to 3d6 of the same damage type. When you reach 17th level, you can command five melee weapons with a single bonus action, and the weapons do not have to be on your body for you to affect it. Additionally, the extra damage goes up to 4d6 of the same damage type.
Beginning at 2nd level, you have enough manipulation with your voice where you can copy a sound or voice made another creature. In order to do so, you must listen to and study the sound or voice that you want to mimic for at least a minute. When you have done so, you can mimic that sound or voice whenever you want, as much as you want.
Beginning at 3rd level, you receive the tongue of the angels and the power of the monstrous yells, described below.
- Tongue of the Angels
You can understand and speak any of the standard languages, though you cannot understand any exotic language. While talking to a humanoid, you may attempt to charm the humanoid. The humanoid must make a Wisdom saving throw or else become charmed by you. If the creature succeeds, it knows you attempted to charm it, and it has advantage on it's next Wisdom saving throw against this effect. Creatures that cannot hear or have the deafened condition are immune to this effect. When you use this feature, you cannot use it again until you finish a short or long rest. At level 10, you can understand and speak any language.
- Monstrous Yell
You can take an action to cause your voice to boom to a volume 10 times louder than normal for one minute, making the sound of any creature you desire while dealing thunder damage. Any creature within 120 feet of you must make a Wisdom saving throw. On a failure, they take 3d10 thunder damage. On a success, they take half the damage. Any creature that cannot hear or has the deafened condition is immune to this effect. You must complete a short rest before being able to use this feature again.
When you reach 5th level, you gain another of the Gods' Blessings; Muse Command.
- Muse Command

Beginning at 7th level, you are able to use your voice to call a magical steed to you. You can cast find steed with the celestial type, at will without expending a spell slot. When you do so, you cannot use this feature again until you finish a long rest
Beginning at 9th, you can use an action to turn some or all of the weapons or ammunition on your body and those affected by Blade Song invisible. Creatures cannot grab levitating weapons while they are invisible. These weapons stay invisible until you make an attack with them or dispel the effect, the latter you can do anytime. If the weapons have been invisible for one hour, they turn visible again and this feature will not work on that weapon again for 2d4 hours. When you make an attack with an invisible weapon or ammunition, you make the attack roll with advantage. When you make an attack with an invisible levitating weapon, the target has disadvantage on its saving throw. When you use this feature, you can't use it again until you finish a short or long rest.
