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 🙂

If I remember correctly the 3.5 Drow splat book swapped out musical ability for poisons too.
The best bard I have seen was played by a guy in my group who ran a particularly uncharismatic motivational speaker. He had a lot of leaflets.August 4, 2014 at 7:34 am #646329Vaeron

The only time I’ve played a bard was in 4e. My character used a tambourine. It made giving bonuses on skill challenges fun, especially stealth checks. Ah, 4e, a system where the power mechanics work regardless of how little sense it makes. I tried to replicate the character in one of Telemergion’s maptools games, but my internet exploded. No surprises, it was Comcast.August 11, 2014 at 10:32 am #646330
What about the Pathfinder bard archetypes? There’s plenty to choose from that give up lute-plucking in exchange for other abilities. For example, how’s that Archaeologist GMPC coming along in the Shattered Star game, @[member=”Hal”] and @[member=”Lockhart”] and @[member=Thing]?

Leaflets, huh? His name wouldn’t happen to be @[member=ross], by any chance, would it? 😉August 11, 2014 at 11:26 pm #646331
I have liked bards since ADnD2e. I haven’t looked at the 5e Bard stuff too much yet but I hope to be having fun with bards in another edition. I like the idea of the aggressive leafletter. I have a few character ideas that I have created that would fit a bardy kind of character that I would like to give a bit of a road test to.August 18, 2014 at 12:07 am #646332Slartibartfast

I think that we need to encourage one off the groups here to take on the roles of a band of wandering minstrels. Then we can have all bards all the time. We just have to make sure people nearby don’t get too hungry or there will be much rejoicing.September 18, 2014 at 9:53 am #646334

Huh?! Are bards considered Soylent Green in 5E? :OSeptember 18, 2014 at 1:46 pm #646335
It’s not even a 5E thing. It goes back much furtherSeptember 18, 2014 at 2:57 pm #646336

As opposed to all the other bards, who much prefer a nice cup of chamomile tea before going to bed early? 😉
