Your ties to the magic of song and story have granted you magic performance abilities.
Benefit: You gain the bardic performance abilities of countersong, distraction, fascinate, and inspire courage. Your bard level for these abilities is equal to your magister level –4. While you do gain additional rounds of performance per day, the ability to begin performances more easily, and the improved effect of fascinate and inspire courage based on your effective bard level, you never gain new forms of bardic performance (such as inspire competence, suggestion, or dirge of doom).
