From publisher blurb:
This is the mantra of many fantasy RPG campaigns. But bards are characters of knowledge, magic, and skill all wrapped into one charismatic package. Clever and cunning heroes who travel the world, the stories bards tell bring hope to the fearful masses and urge them to forsake their insular traditions and seek more than day-to-day existance.
These Renaissance folk are not simply minstrels and entertainers; they are leaders, scoundrels, and true adventurers at heart!
