    Class Features
    All of the following are Class Features of the Warsinger prestige class.

    Weapon and Armor Proficiency
    War Singers gain weapon proficiency with all martial weapons and medium armor.

    Bardic Music (Su)
    A War Singer adds their class level to their bard level, if any, to determine what bardic music abilities they can use and how often they can use them. A war singer with no bard levels gains bardic music abilities as a bard of their class level.

    Battle Caster (Ex)
    A war singer can cast spells while wearing medium armor or wielding shields without incurring the normal arcane spell failure chance. However, like any other arcane spellcaster, a war singer still incurs the normal arcane spell failure chance when wearing heavy armor. A multiclass war singer still incurs the normal arcane spell failure chance for spells received from other classes.
    Starting at 8th level, they gain heavy armor proficiency and the ability to cast in heavy armor and with shields without incurring the normal arcane spell failure chance. A multiclass war singer still incurs the normal arcane spell failure chance for spells received from other classes.

    Spellcasting
    Starting at 2nd level and every level thereafter an war singer gains new spells per day and spells known as if they had also gained a level in an arcane spellcasting class they belonged to before taking war singer. They do not, however, gain any other benefit a character of that class would have gained, except for an increased effective level of spellcasting. If a character had more than one spellcasting class before becoming an war singer, they must decide to which class he adds the new level for purposes of determining spells per day.

    Bonus Feats (Ex)
    At 2nd level and every even numbered level thereafter a war singer gains fighter bonus feats. They must still meet all prerequisites for a bonus feat, including ability score and base attack bonus minimums.

    War Song (Su)
    At 2nd level a war singer can, as an additional bardic music affect, sing a fearsome song to empower themselves or any single ally in combat. For every 3 levels the war singer gains beyond 2nd, they can target an additional ally with this. This grants a +1 moral bonus to BAB and a moral bonus to AC equal to the war singerís charisma modifier. This effect lasts as long the ally hears the bard sing, and 5 rounds thereafter.

    Battle Shriek (Su)
    At 3rd level a war sing can let out an ear splitting screech to damage and daze their enemies. To do this the singer make a special Perform (Sing) check. The result of this check is the fortitude save DC for this effect. The war singer targets a single person within 30-ft and if they fail the save, they take 3d6 points of sonic damage and are dazed for 1 round. Using this ability is a swift action, and they can do it a number of times per day equal to their charisma modifier.

    Weapon Aptitude (Ex)
    At 3rd level a war singerís training with a wide range of weaponry and tactics gives them great skill with particular weapons. They qualify for feats that usually require a minimum number of fighter levels (such as Weapon Specialization) as if they had a fighter level equal to their war singer level.

    Melodic Attack (Su)
    Starting at 4th level a war singer can, in place of their final iterative attack, start a bardic music effect.

    Singing Defense (Ex)
    Starting at 5th level a war singer distracts their opponents by singing and therefore gets their charisma bonus as a dodge bonus to AC.

    Spellbound Attack (Su)
    In exchange for giving up a spell slot a war singer of 7th level or higher can get a bonus on To hit and Damage rolls equal to the level of the spell slot given up.

    Singing Shout (Su)
    When a war singer of 9th level or higher engages in battle, they often let out a singing shout as a
    standard action. All allies (including themself) within a 60-foot radius who can hear the war singer gain a +4 enhancement bonus to Strength for a number of rounds equal to one-half the class level of the war singer. They can do this a number of times per day equal to their charisma modifier.

    Critical Song (Ex)
    Whenever a War Singer of 10th level or higher confirms a critical hit, they regain three daily uses of bardic music.

    Thumbs up Re: 3.5 Prestige Class: The War Singer [PEACH]

    Hey! Thank you so much for statting this out for people to use. I've been wanting to play this prestige class ever since I first started playing table top RPGs back in high school. The crew that I game with recently are more dedicated to playing Pathfinder as opposed to D&D, though, so the class didn't exist for me to use anymore. Point being, thank you so much!! We were gonna try to figure it out ourselves, but this makes life so much easier. You're the best! :D
