Bard        Charlatan        Dancer        Jester        Minstrel       
Description: The Minstrel is the master of instruments and musical tools. So capable is a minstrel in this art that he or she is able to draw forth magical and wonderous powers from the instruments played. The Minstrel is able to craft and draw unique powers from any of dozens of different musical instruments, with the only drawback being how the chosen instrument impacts fighting or speaking ability while it is being played.

How to play: The Minstrel is as social of a bard as the others, but due to his many hours of lonely practice, the Minstrel also has an almost arcane like ability to use instrumental magic for more solitary or unique benefits than the simple Bard or Dancer. In the end, the Minstrel may become an orchestra of power unto himself, capable of bringing tremendous benefit and joy to his group, or terrible retribution to his foes. Therefore, if a player is looking for a bard to play when groups are not available, this is the one to pick.
