You cannot resist the allure of my music.

Prerequisite: Drow, Songweaver, Darksong

It is a tradition in some drow noble houses that females that show musical aptitude are trained in the arts of the bae'qeshel, the dark minstrels. The bae'qeshel are the drow songweavers, and specialise in using their musical powers to dominate the wills of their foes, controlling them in combat to turn battles considerably one-sided. You have learned these arts. Did you learn them before you fled from your dark home, turning them to your own ends, or did you show an aptitude for manipulation dispite your lack of training? Most importantly, does some part of Lolth reside within you still?

Bae'qeshel Path FeaturesEdit

Undeniable Will (11th Level): You gain a +1 bonus to attack rolls against Will.
Enthralling Action (11th Level): When you spend an Action Point to take an extra action, one enemy of your choice within 5 squares of you makes a melee attack against itself or another enemy of your choice. The attack uses your Charisma modifier, is treated as an attack using your implement, and is made against the target's AC. The attack deals 1d10 + your Charisma modifier damage.
Enthralling Will (16th Level): Enemies suffer a -2 penalty to saving throws against effects you cause that require a save to end.
