Not all who become Arcane casters choose to stay hidden away in towers and spires peering into the inky vastness of the universe. These are dark times, and anyone with the ability to lift the hearts of those around her will be a prized treasure. Bards come from many walks of life and backgrounds, but the one thing they have in common is the power to entrance others through their performances as well as their spells. It’s been thousands of years since anyone’s seen a movie or watched television, and yet there are bard celebrities. Some bards function as entertainers and hosts in palatial mansions, and others travel the roads spreading news and delivery letters. Some bards even enter the factional arena, fighting with words and wit instead of sword and steel.
Bards can be of any alignment of their choosing; though most, if not all, are Neutral.
