So due to a picture I found I now have a desire to play a bard (or other music related class) that uses music to summon/manipulate the elements (could be a single element, more would be nice), namely with the his/her instrument. Granted I could do this via Seeker of the Song or Sublime Chord fairly easily but I wanted to reach out to the community and see if someone might know of other builds and/or homebrew that would help with this concept. Another class combo that might make this work is bard/warlock with his powers stemming from an element rather than the usual source.
If someone would want to brew a new class/PrC I've got a few ideas related to that. Perchance making each element related to certain type of performances/instruments for instance.
