1
This is a pre-made human bard for you to use, levels 1 - 7. This spreadsheet is designed to be printed
2
The only books used to make this Bard are the Players Handbook and the Dungeon Master's Guide
3
This character has strong social skills, a pretty good selection of spells, and can fight in combat using melee or ranged weapons effectively
4
Tripping with the Whip is a big action for this character, especially in low and mid levels. Look for opportunities
5
Sleep can be really good at low levels, but it gets weak after level 5 or 6. I don't want to be stuck with it until the level 8 swap, so I didn't take it.
6
There is lack of clarity whether you can take more than LVL+3 ranks in "Speak Languages". This character is built assuming you can take more than LVL + 3
7
We pump speak langauges because a lot of the bard's most powerful abilities depend on verbal communication to be effective.
8
We are carrying one weapon of each type of damage. Make sure you use the right weapon vs the right bad guy.
9
This build uses Alter Self. Please refer to the New Bard Handbook for a good summary on how to use this spell effectively
10
At level 4 we buy a "Ring of Prestidigitation" which doesn't technically exist in the DMG, but it's virtually identical to the "Hand of the Mage" item, so your DM should allow it
11
You could take Feather Fall or Summon Monster I (for suicide missions, like trap detection) instead of Charm Person at level 5. There's not a great choice here.
12
At level 6 we take a headband of Charisma, which isn't listed, but seems reasonable under the "creating wondrous items" section of the DMG
