The bard does a little bit of everything; cast spells, heal, fight with a sword. He also brings a unique skills set and two special abilities to the table. He has all of the skills of a rogue and a wizard, with a broad range of knowledge. He also has a chance to know anything (represented by his bardic knowledge ability). Finally he can create some enchantment like effects using the power of his performance.
Here you will find a plethora of options for giving your bard that little bit of extra focus. From combat worthy bards to bards that are rogues to scholars with a creative flair you can make them all here.
