Spellsinger - Faerun Prestige Class
This is a Forgotten Realms Exclusive Class
Spellsingers (not to be confused with spelldancers), are rare practitioners of an ancient elven bardic tradition. Like bards, spellsingers work magic with song and poetics, but, whereas bards draw on the Weave through singing and poetry, spellsingers are truly part of the Weave. As such, spellsingers can work magic through music with greater effect and flexibility than other bards.
Most spellsingers are bards or wizard/bards, particularly enchanter/bards, although sorcerer/bards and cleric/bards (the latter known as circle dancers) are not unknown. Characters of other classes almost never become spellsingers. Likewise, most spellsingers are elves, or, more rarely, half-elves. At least one human with a trace of elven heritage, Danilo Thann, is known to have mastered the art as well.
NPC spellsingers are usually found in traditional elven homelands where they play a role not unlike bards in other cultures. They garner a great deal of respect among elves and half-elves raised among the Fair Folk, but their unique talents and abilities are little understood outside the ranks of the Tel-quessir.
