College of Demise
Bards of the College of Demise are peope who were struck down by grief, and they become obsessed with death. Channeling their sorrow they play music that chills the bones and causes pain in the soul.
When you join the College of Demise at 3rd level, you gain an advantage on all knowledge rolls about Death, Unlife, famous undead, and religious rites connected to death. Additionally when selecting your spells, you also have access to all necromancy spells.
Also at 3rd level, you learn how to demoralize your opponents by playing sorrowful music that fills their heart. When a creature that you can see within 60 feet of you makes an attack roll, an ability check, or a saving throw, you can use your reaction to expend one of your uses of Bardic Inspiration, rolling a Bardic Inspiration die and subtracting the number rolled from the creature's roll. YOu can choose to use this feature after the creature makes its roll, but before the DM determines whether the attack roll, or ability check, or saving throw succeeds or fails. The creature is immune if it can't hear you or if it's immune to being charmed.
Discord of Dread
Starting at 6th level, you can spend two uses of your Bardic Inspiration to fill your enemies with the fear of Death, by playing a terrifying chord. Each creature of your choice within 30 feet of you must make a wisdom saving throw if it can hear you. On a failed save the target is frightened for 1 minute. The creature is immune if it can't hear you or if it's immune to being frightened.
Dance of the Dead
Starting at 14th level, you can animate dead bodies around you within 30 feet (as per the spell animate dead) without using components. As long as you keep performing the bodies will do your bidding. If you stop performing the effect ends. You regain the use of this ability after finishing a short rest.
