Hey Gitp!

So I threw this together because I've been thinking about the idea of a Namer base class, but have a PC who's playing a Bard who is also into the idea of naming magic e.g. The Name of the Wind and Wizard of Earthsea. Hence the College of Names.

I haven't really hashed this out at all, or tried to make it too pretty, but I would love any feedback!

Light commentary: I have no idea if power of the voice is remotely balanced but I couldn't come up with much else that fit. I do think that 'burning' a bardic inspiration did is a clever mechanic, but I don't know if it's a *good* mechanic.

I know all other colleges including UA get proficiencies at 3rd - namers could get like... Arcana, or history, or social skills, or languages, but none of those fit the namer better than base bard.

I've messed around a bit with Runes and Names and I think it works, it's just a little unoriginal...

Name & Bind has issues.

For reference, since I was too lazy to copy the text or come up with my own true names: Rune Scribe (UA) (http://media.wizards.com/2015/downloads/dnd/UA_Rune_Magic_Prestige_Class.pdf)
