Canaith Lyrist

PRESTIGE CLASS: This class is not available at character creation and must be unlocked by meeting special requirements, listed below. This class has 10 levels.

Only the best and brightest are invited to become Canaith lyrists, and those who eventually win the approval of the Canaith College's masters are remarkable individuals indeed, skilled in swordplay, magic, and diplomacy.

Class Abilities

Spellcasting: At each Canaith lyrist level, the character gains new spells per day (and spells known, if applicable) as if she had also gained a level in an arcane or divine class.

Bardic Music: A Canaith lyrist adds her lyrist level to her bard level to determine the number of times per day she can use her bardic music, which bard songs she knows, and the power of those abilities.

NWN2 Adaption: This class is based on the Fochlucan Lyrist and has been renamed to Canaith Lyrist. It does not require the Druid class to take and does not provide dual progression (one arcane, one divine). You simply choose which spellcasting progression you want.
