First Prolocutor Bard (Bard Archetype)

You are a master of the spoken word and your orations reflect this. While most bards sing and dance while casting spells, you simply Speak and the world rearranges itself to suit your needs.

Trained Speaker: The only perform that you consider a class skill is Perform (oratory). This ability alters class skills.

Spoken Performance: You gain the feat Cypherspeaker. Your performances must be auditory, in addition you lose access to the following performances: Countersong and Distraction. This ability alters Bardic Performance.

Oration of Creation: At 1st level you learn a Word of Foundation. Whenever you put a rank in Perform (oratory) or gain a level of this class, learn a Word of Foundation. You may now use each Word of Foundation once per day, with a caster level equal to three quarters of your bard level (minimum one). Learn the following Identifying Words at first level: All, Ally, Enemy, and Self. You may use them each a number of times per day equal to half your bard level (minimum one). Learn the following Identifying Words at twelfth level: Allies and Enemies. You may use them each a number of times per day equal to one quarter your bard level (minimum one). You may not learn Words that have a prerequisite of 18th level. This ability functions as the Words of Foundation class feature from Speaker, except you use Charisma instead of Intelligence. This ability replaces spellcasting.

Versatile Orator: At 2nd level, you may use your bonus to Perform (oratory) in place of your bonus for Diplomacy and Linguistics. At 6th level and every four levels thereafter, you may use your bonus to Perform (oratory) in place of your bonus for one of the following skills: Bluff, Handle Animal, Intimidate, Sense Motive, or Use Magic Device. This ability replaces Versatile Performance.
