Bhajans are bards who have an occult rather than arcane origin. Brought up in a mystical tradition where music, recitation, and dance are central elements, the bhajan's power is a natural extension of being in tune with the universe.

Class Features

Spells (Psychic)

A bhajan casts occult spells, which are drawn from the bard spell list. As an occult spellcaster, the bhajan's ability to cast spells in armor is unrestricted. Unlike a normal bard, bhajan spells don't have a verbal or somatic component, verbal and somatic components are replaced with thought and emotion components respectively.
