Status and Origins
Titles or honors granted:
CLASS DESCRIPTION By nature, a bard will learn many different skills throughout his travels. Thus, although his strength lies in other areas, he makes a proficient fighter. All bards are accomplished singers, chanters, or vocalists, and can play a musical instrument of their choice. The bard has the ability to influence reactions of groups (if they are not preparing to attack), altering the general mood of the listeners. He can try to soften their mood, or make it uglier. The means by which they attempt this, range from a fiery speech to a haunting melody. The music, poetry, and stories of a bard can also be inspirational, rallying friends and allies. Since bards learn a little bit of everything in their travels, they can read and write in their native tongue, and are certainly able to pick up a second language. Bards also have a good chance to be able to determine the general nature of a magical item, if given the chance to closely inspect it, though not necessarily handle it. However, these are not the main powers of the bard. Bards have an exceptional personality and soul, and thus their performances take on a semi-magical nature. The areas of Song, Music, Dramatics, and Voice of Command, are the bards equivalent of spells.
CLASS RESTRICTIONS/DISADVANTAGES Where armor is concerned, the bard's nature dictates that he must be able to move nimbly and fluidly. Thus he cannot wear armor heavier than studded leather and cannot use a shield. If he betrays either of these rules, than he cannot use his bardic powers while still wearing the extra armor.
CLASS ADVANTAGES He fights as a rouge, though he can use any weapon without restrictions on proficences. He receives the Thief abilities of Detect Noise and Read Languages. Any of his powers do not need to be memorized as mage spells; however, there is a limit on how many they know, dependent upon skill level. The Voice of Command is the most revered of all bardic abilities. Bards closely and jealously guard the Secrets of the Voice. To all others, it is an amazing power, whereby speaking a few simple words a bard can order another to do almost anything (at higher levels). Bards rarely reveal the secrets of their Voice, and doubtless their goodly nature would prohibit them from using such powers for this purpose, except for in the most dire circumstances, regardless.
