Default Re: Why the Bard Talent?

Ok. I guess what I wrote above wasn't entirely accurate. The Bard talent also has the "ability to ingratiate" oneself, that seems to extend to same-language verbal communication, as well. They know an instrument AND are an entertainer who also has that kind of social skill.

I take the mundane talent as the one to give people who have instrument skills that don't translate into social reaction effects. You can even take it at a master level, but that doesn't necessarily imply the social skill that comes with Bard.

What I meant my main point to be, was that the name of the talent isn't the main point. It's what it represents. The name "Bard" may now be unfortunate given all the other associations the word has taken on since 1980, especially in certain other RPGs.
