Hey Im new here
« on: September 16, 2006, 09:42:42 AM »
hey guys Im new, ofcourse, and very interested to know how this site works.  I play many RPG's like Oblivivion, Morrowind, Final Fantasy etc......But I enjoy creating my own stories exactly the way I like them. My new interest is creating a story about a bard and his travels through unique countries with  the warriors from those countries. Everyone knows that there has to be a bard to tell the story in order for a warrior to be known.  I intend to use that as a plot for my story. Let me know what you think about it I really want to get started.

Ah, a CRPG player. Welcome Abock. Enjoy your stay!

As for what a Bard should carry:

All hail Abock of the CRPGs.

How about a lute?

A flute wouldn't help too much unless there was somebody else playing it for him while he sang is bard songs.

A lute, with a reinforced everything so that when he uses it as a club it won't break.
They were immediately and absolutely recognizable as adventurers... They were hardy and dangerous, lawless, stripped of allegiance or morality, living off their wits, stealing and killing, hiring themselves out to whoever and whatever came. They were inspired by dubious virtues.  China Mieville - Perdido Street Station

Bards, from what I've read, often use a lute and a short sword. Anyway! Well met!

There's a short article on [medieval music] over on the main site.  Get y'rself a Cittern!  With that and a back-up band, your fame is assured!

And don't club anyone with it!  You know how much a top-quality lute costs these days?

Peace. . . who says every bard has to follow the same logic as other bards? Make it an axe and a morraco...

I wasn't saying follow the lute/shortsword equips. He asked for help deciding. Thats a common (if over used) combination. Personally, I think a Lute with a dagger hidden in it would be different, and give the bard a bow for more originality
