JPS Posted February 4, 2004 Share Posted February 4, 2004 Here's a thought that struck me a couple of days ago. The bard class covers a fairly wide area, as concepts go. A bard can be a poet, an entertainer who sings in taverns for a living, a keeper of lore and traditions in a tribal society (hi, Delainy ), a storyteller, a juggler or even *shudder* a mime. Now, Haer'Dalis is clearly an actor more than anything else. Sure, he writes a poem or two for the ladies, and he can probably sing if it's required in a play, but the main thing he does, performance-wise, is act. So when he uses his bard song ability, exactly what happens? Does he actually pick up a harp that is never mentioned anywhere else and that doesn't really fit the concept, or could "singing bard song" be interpreted loosely as reciting a rousing speech from "The Great Modron March"? I've played with Haer in the party on and off for a couple of years, and more regularely since we started working on this mod, but I've never thought about this before, so I guess it isn't a big deal for anybody else either, but if you've thought about this yourself (or if you havenÃƒÂ¤t but want to say something anyway), feel free to comment. It probably won't be cruical to the romance in any way, though... ("The Great Modron March", by the way, is an old Planescape campaign. I don't think it has any rousing speeches in it, but the sketches in the marigin work as a marching Modron flipbook if you browse through the book quickly. That's surely enough to keep up the morale of any party) Link to comment
