"This document proposes rules for adding The College of Loathing as a subclass archetype for the Bard class. The College of Loathing makes no secret of the fact that their members exploit basic instincts and behaviors to manipulate others around them. If your character likes things to go their way, they would feel right at home with this time honored tradition. The College welcomes those bards that work with their hands, and aren't afraid to get them dirty. They might rob or accost you to make ends meet. They are not to be crossed, as they have their very own charismatic ways to spin a story their way. They have many tricks to share, so you never have to share with anybody else ever again."
