Last, but certainly not least, the glamorous bard is now modded into BG3.

Implementation Notes
Three Colleges are available: Valor, Lore and Glamour

You start with slick Bardic Garb, suitable for performing in the nicest of taverns with all the protective ability of padded armor. You also start with a Shawm.

Jack of All trades is implemented as a flat +1 bonus to all skill rolls since I cannot check if you are proficient in something.

Expertise is available for ANY skill and not just those you are proficient in, for same reason. It is also a flat +2 bonus rather than based on your proficiency bonus.

Song of Rest grants all those nearby a +50% to healing during short rest, since BG3 implements short rests quite differently a 1d6 bonus was pathetic.

Inspiration abilities required significant changes, considering it is not possible for me to prompt the user to use an inspiration die at random:
-Normal Inspiration lasts 3 rounds, but grants 1d6 bonus to all attack, skill and save rolls during those rounds
-With Combat Inpiration, they recieve their proficiency bonus to AC and Damage rolls
-Cutting Words lasts 1 round, but causes a -1d6 to ALL rolls during that round
-Mantle of Inspiration actually works more or less as RaW

The bard Tadpole ability is Rouse the Dead: "Perform such an inspiring ballad that you rouse your slumbering compatriots from their thoroughly deceased state, thus stealing their souls back the mortal realm with psionically infused music."

I can make no guarantee about compatibility with other mods, or with future updates to this mod.
