For those who do not know the Forgotten Realms, the Harpers are a group of people working together to oppose many evil groups. The Harpers use stealth and guile to protect the innocent, and because of this receive the blessings of many deities. Many longstanding members of the Harpers have spent so much time on missions for the society that they have developed similar skills to help them succeed on their missions. Also the Harpers are tasked with preserving the past by keeping old songs and tales alive.
Some may have noticed my presence on the board in the past weeks, but this is my first homebrew, so if there's any rule I'm not following, please tell me and I'll correct the situation as soon as possible. I would appreciate comments/criticism. For those who already know the Harper Agent, this is a redux and not a creation. The version I reworked can be found in the Player's Guide to Faerun
page 58. I would like to thank Harkone who already viewed this redux and helped me correct a few issues.

and Comprehend Languages

+2 sacred bonus on saving throws against compulsion and fear effects.
