Lyrical Poet (L20 Bard)[edit]

The lyrical poet's strength is to be able to enthrall the mobs. Enchantment spells have an oomph due the use of enchantment focus feats. In addition to these feats, the spellsinger ability, spell penetration feats, bard capstone as well as heighten allows lyrical poets to stop mobs with a wave of their hands. In combat, the lyrical poet helps the party by softening up mobs by laying down crowd control spells such as Otto's dancing sphere to make a group of mobs dance, and then whipping out the trusty heavy repeater to cause some serious damage to the dancing mobs. A decent constitution score is given so that the poet can take some beating while fascinating mobs. The poet is also given good healing abilities to act as a support healer for the party. In short, the poet is often the "sixth" man in the party: While he does not have a specific function within the party, he is so versatile that any slot can be filled. Furthermore, the songs that he sings are able to elevate the martial prowess of the party.
