So just for Nick I thought I would post this as he likes Bards apparently ;P
d20Monkey has just released the class sneak peek for Bards. Seems they are sticking with the playing instruments and inspiring people with their flouncy awesome.
What do you think? The only bard I ever liked was in Dark Sun but then they made them cool with poisons and an explanation. I am pretty sure if an orc was about to bite my face off that I would be more than a little annoyed to have a guy behind me with a lute playing music rather than actually helping
