What kind of magic do I use? I use the magic of old tales, binding the energies of those exemplars to myself.

It is a very poor idea to disparage those old stories.

Weapon and Armor Proficiencies: A Glamour-Worker is proficient with all simple weapons and light armor.

Glamour-Tales: A Glamour-Worker is a person with a most intimate tie to certain ancient tales; they have developed this to the point where they are capable of pulling strength and wiles from ancient heroes and villains.

Each Glamour-Worker has access to Glamours, powers that emulate these most ancient of stories. At first level, a Glamour-Worker divides up the amount of Eagna listed in the above table amongst any number of Glamours on their list. After this is done, those Glamours are said to have a [Eagna] equal to the amount of Eagna apportioned to them. A Glamour that hasn't been apportioned Eagna by a Glamour-Worker is not usable by that Glamour-Worker.

At first level, only 3 Eagna may be apportioned to any given Glamour; at 4th level, that limit is increased to 4, and at 10th level, that limit is further increased to 5.

Eagna may only be apportioned when the Glamour-Worker gains a level; otherwise, choices made are immutable. Upon gaining a level in a Glamour-using class, the Glamour-Worker gains one additional Eagna to apportion. At 5th level, and every 4 levels thereafter, they gain an additional Eagna to apportion.

By default, a Glamour-Worker may only use the Apprentice level abilities of any Glamours they are capable of using; however, once they have at least 3 Glamours with [Eagna] 4, they are capable of using the Adept level abilities of their Glamours. If they ever have at least 4 Glamours with [Eagna] 5, they may use the Master-level abilities of their Glamours.

Almost all Glamours base their power around how much [Eagna] they have apportioned; however, they are also modified by the raw might of the Glamour-Worker, known as [Misneach], which is listed on the above table. When those two abilities, [Eagna] and [Misneach] are added together, the result is referred to as [Cumhacht].

All Glamour abilities are Supernatural abilities that cost 1 Lorekeeper's Song use to use unless otherwise stated.

Lorekeeper's Song (Ex): A Glamour-Worker knows a great deal, due to their resonance with stories. As long as they haven't exhausted their stores of lore, they are like well-stocked libraries.

A Glamour-Worker has a number of uses of this ability equal to half their level plus their Intelligence modifier. As long as they have at least one use of this ability remaining, they add their [Misneach] to any Knowledge or Perform checks they make as a Competence bonus, and may make Knowledge checks untrained.

Dance to Other Drums (Ex): A Glamour-Worker is so immersed in stories that it has affected their luck in a fundamental (and perhaps disturbing) manner.

A Glamour-Worker uses the Bell-Curve Rolls (http://dndsrd.net/unearthedRolls.html) variant.

Half-Remembered Tales (Ex): A storyteller can always scrape up some odd story with a moment's thought; otherwise, they wouldn't be a very good story-teller, would they?

At 3rd level, a Glamour-Worker gains a single "phantom" Eagna that they may apportion as normal, except that they may, over the course of 5 minutes spent mumbling under their breath, reapportion as much of this "phantom" Eagna as they wish. This "phantom" Eagna does not count towards whether or not you are capable of accessing Adept or Master level abilities, and does not count towards any other prerequisites.

At 7th level, and every 4 levels thereafter, they gain an additional "phantom" Eagna.

Stories Memorized (Ex): You have put quite a bit of yourself into the stories you reenact.

At 16th level, a Glamour-Worker may use the Apprentice level abilities of any Glamour that has at least an [Eagna] of 4 without spending a use of Lorekeeper's Song.

Stories Internalized (Ex): And they have put quite a bit into you.

At 19th level, a Glamour-Worker may use Apprentice level abilities of any Glamour that has at least an [Eagna] of 3 without spending a use of Lorekeeper's Song.

If a Glamour has an [Eagna] of at least 5, then they may use its Adept level ability without spending a use of Lorekeeper's Song.

One with Tales (Ex): You have become one with the tales that you so looked up to.

At 20th level, a Glamour-Worker... [TO BE CONTINUED.]

I really like the concept, but without knowing what Glamours these Skalds get I have no idea how to EAC.

Well, I had to go do something over the last two days; I'll have them up (or at least some of them) tonight.
