At 3rd level you gain proficiency with thieves tools, Disguise Kit, and Poisoner’s Kit.
Athasian Minstrels seem to have an almost magical supply of poison. Often the targets dont even see the deadly pin prick that delivers the deadly venom.
At 3rd level as part of an attack the target of an attack must make a Constitution saving thrown vs the bard’s magic save DC. If they fail then the target gains the poisoned condition. They may make another Constitution saving throw at the end of their turn to overcome the effects. The Minstrel can’t use this ability again until after a short or long rest.
With each assassination the Minstrel’s strike become more and more deadly.
At 6th level you gain the rouge sneak attack at 1d6. As you gain bard levels this damage increases to 2d6 at 12th level, and 3d6 at 20th level. This doesn’t stack with any other sneak attack gained from other classes.
Killer of 1000 Faces
The best assassin is one that you never see or looks like your best friend.
Beginning at 14th the Minstrel gains Disguise Self and can cast it without spending a spell slot.
