More Information About Bards on Dark Castle

Bards are the ancient storytellers and singers of
Sorpigal. They keep alive the legends and history
of the realms through song and dance.
 
Their voices, when focused through the power of KI
can at times become enchanting, summoning,
confusing, or even lethal.  Woven with spiritual
ki powers, bards have a multitude of songs at
their disposal for various occasions ranging from
a soothing and healing tune to a rousing call to
battle!
 
The bard's music is often exceptionally powerful
when employed as a support for groups of
adventurers travelling the most dangerous of
roads.  Be they a TROUBADOUR or
MINSTREL, a bard always has a quick wit
and merry tune for any occasion!
