Charean, I'm sure you will enjoy playing as a bard. I always find them great fun, as they have diverse talents, and are not so specialised in any one area. They never run out of uses in an adventuring party - if they get badly hurt and need to withdraw from the front line in battle, or if they run out of spells, their bardsong is a great tool which is IMHO underrated.

Especially jesters, their singing skills are their main weapon and can have several effects, more so than other bard kits.

Yorick, music is a fine profession indeed... the bard would suit!

It seems that we are all more comfortable playing characters that are like us, hmmmm?

Are you enjoying your travel? I really miss real food... can't get it here unless I hit the sushi places or specialty markets. You sound over 30 yourself, or are you mature for your age?

Epona - love your sig and totally agree with you... probably why the jester is the most appealing.. more fun to confuse!!

You aren't a Zelda fan, are you? Epona is the pony in the game...

... And Yorick's music is great, I must add, Charean. You can find some of his songs on Stealthy's site http://communities.msn.co.uk/StealthysSite

Now we count on you to write the Laughing Hyenas new hymn, Leader of the Jesters.

And Yorick, thank you for starting this clan! I knew there were a few bard fans here, but I had no idea how many.

I got so fed up with reading in BGI, BGII, IWD tips books "Pick one (bard) only if you want to properly role-play your characters" (IWD minihint booklet).

WTF does that mean?? It goes on about how important all the other classes are, then writes off the most interesting of them all! Of course I want to role-play, that's why I bought an RPG, isn't it?

I used to play a bard in PnP games too. It's good to finally have the merit of bards appreciated!

Agreed Epona, the Master Class indeed.

Charean, I'm 29. Thankyou.

Moiraine, I'll have to look into that.

Charean, I find it is more fun to play characters not at all like the real person - my favourite RPG character is the Thief, and I am the more honest person in the world (my friends say TOO honest sometimes ... ). Maybe that is why I so love playing the Thief with a vengeance ! Yep, I agree with you, Epona, what are RPGs about if not roleplaying ? I remember fondly all the jokes about his size that I directed to a friend in a AD&D PnP game, he played a Dwarf, and in real life he is 30 cm taller than me !

Sigh! No, I'm not a Zelda fan, never played it. Epona is the ancient Celtic/Gallic horse goddess. That's why the name was used for Zelda!

I guess I should be used to answering this by now, you're not the only one to have asked - I don't really mind though, and it helps people to remember me If you check out the General Discussions board I started a thread on nicknames 'cos a few people had asked me about it!!! Link below -
