Bards are a profession of singers, dancers, and performers that specialize in the magic created by the sound of music. Bardic magic is elemental and mental in nature, and bards are considered a semi profession that makes them effective in both the use of magic and the use of weaponry.

Bards have the ability to perform loresinging, which can divine the special properties of items. In some cases, loresongs may bring out a story from a particular item, often called a loresong itself.
