===Bard===
Description: Bards are traveling singers, whose "songs" can possess powerful magic. They are highly desired group members for the inspiration they bring to their team members, and the great stings they provide to their enemies. They possess the same weapon and armor restrictions as thieves, but also qualify for many thief skills.

Bard is the basis for numerous sub-classes which the player may choose to gain levels in at any time. These sub-classes include the Charlatan, Dancer, Minstrel, and the Jester.

How to play: The great strength of the bard is in his wide assortment of skills, and in his powerful songs. The bard may try his hand as the lonesome traveler, but will find his skills still put him behind his peers. It is in the company of other, more powerful classes, that the bard will flourish. And because of the unique nature of his magic, and how his skills will always affect groups, that groups will always want to have a bard along.

Bards are as weak as thieves in combat, and lack their general sneakiness, so in the company of others must the bard find his path to greatness, filling any skill gaps in almost any group with the appropriate magic or ability.
