Bard


A wandering performer and story-teller, colorful both in speech and appearance, their visit a welcome omen in most communities. They distinguish themselves from the common minstrel through their peerless knowledge of the land, its legends and its lore. The true purpose of their journey to amass the world's knowledge, it's retelling in story and song, a simple pretext.

PLAYING A BARD

At 1st-level:

  • A great candidate for the party's "face" that also doubles as a capable healer
  • Has access to several powerhouse spells from the get-go in Healing Word, Sleep and Bane
  • Very limited options for dealing damage, and is likely the most fragile support class

Later on:

  • 'Jack of all Trades' at 2nd level and 'Expertise' at 3rd level make the Bard incredibly competent in every skill
  • Bardic Inspiration is a great mechanic that grants the Bard good utility and tactical depth
