I hadn't seen Tandem Tactician... improves the helps "group" angle or at least it increases it a bit on something you can do regularly not just one .... that is indeed pretty nice at two factors you are potentially being warlord like each turn yeh very slick.Tandem Tactician
Your presence in a scrap tends to elevate your comrades. You gain the following benefits:
• You can use the Help action as a bonus action.
• When you use the Help action to aid an ally in attacking a creature, increase the range of the Help action by 10 feet. Additionally, you can help two allies targeting the same creature within range when you use the Help action this way.
The Crown Paladin I had seen Smite combining with Bard seems a 5e optimization guideline from what I can seeFrom there, I suggest 7 levels in Crown Paladin, for all the usual Paladin goodies (including Charisma to saves aura), Bless, bonus action AoE healing from Turn the Tide, and the ability to take hits for your allies (Plus its thematic and fluffs AF).
The choice to smite or fuel spells brings some choice in to the play style.
And another something I hand not seen before... with intriguing elements. That broad inspiration again a factor for affecting more than one ally. Homebrew eh?Dirge Singer Archetype
Just noticed how open ended Command is => about as open ended as intimidate isn't it.Fluff your spells as 'Martial manoeuvres' or whatnot, and take thematic ones
Thanks for pointing out some interesting things.
