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:
A particularly heavy hangover, the burden of being father in more cities than one and several unpaid bar tabs.

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.

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?

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
