3rd-level College of Hexes feature

You gain one cantrip of your choice from any spell list, which counts as a bard spell for you and doesn’t count against the number of cantrips you can know. Additionally, you can cast the find familiar spell without needing a material component once after finishing a long rest without expending a spell slot.

As long as your familiar is active, when you make an Intelligence, Wisdom, or Charisma check, you can do so with advantage. You can gain advantage this way a number of times equal to your Charisma modifier (minimum once).

You have learned to place hexes on others, cursing their luck or distracting them in some way. You have a new way to use your Bardic Inspiration dice; you can choose to give a foe one of your Bardic Inspiration dice. Anytime before you finish a long rest when the target of your hex makes an attack roll or ability check, you can force it to deduct the number rolled on the Bardic Inspiration die from its d20 roll. If this results in a failed roll, the hex ends, otherwise the target remains hexed, but you can’t force it to deduct the die again until after the end of your next turn.

You can only place one hex at a time, and if you use it on a different target, your hex ends on your previous target.

Wicked Tongue

You consort with dark spirits, gaining you the ability to converse with vermin and other small beasts of the swamp and forest.

in addition, you add the hex, pass without trace, and bestow curse spells to list of spell you know. Each spell counts as a bard spell for you, and it doesn’t count against the number of bard spells you can know. After you finish a long rest, you can cast each of the spells once without expending a spell slot.

Accursed Hex

14th-level College of Hexes feature

Your curses are more potent. You can place up to two hexes at once, but each must be placed on a different target. In addition, when a target of your Hex feature makes an attack roll, ability check, or saving throw, you can use your reaction to force it to reroll the d20, and you choose which roll it keeps. After using doing so, you can’t force the target to reroll again until it finishes a short or long rest.
