May all the Gods and Titans smile upon ye! My heart tells me you've come seeking music and song, but you look to learn them, not just to hear them. You've got a fine voice -- I hope your memory is fine to match it. Would you sway entire mobs with only a word, and have your words make or break the fame of kings? Listen then, and learn!

Around hearth and table Bards work their wonders, spinning tapestries of poetry and music, and keeping the memories of ancient days alive. Their ancient craft was born among the skalds of the Northmen, but now Bards can be found among all the peoples of the World. Every Bard must be a master of tale-telling and music, and must hone their memory to supreme heights: the great sagas and chronicles span thousands of rhymes, and can take three days to hear in full. A master Bard knows several great sagas, and can sing them through from end to end without missing a single word. They need no books or notes to keep the sagas: the weave of rhyme and kenning is their only guide, memory their only tool.
