Bards have a bad wrap, man. Everyone thinks of them as namby-pambies with their lutes and silly songs, but there’s a lot more to my current favorite D&D class. Spice up your Bard with these underused perform skills.
Gettin’ Sassy With It
You are skilled at the insult so brazen and powerful that your enemies are shaken to the core. As your biting words cut through your enemy’s pride, your comrades’ spirits are bolstered. That Beholder’s mom IS kind of a skank.
Get your B-Boy On
Move your feet to the hip-hop in your head and breakdance while you break some skulls. Your fancy footwork empowers your pals to move in mysterious ways while it leaves your enemies thunderstruck.
You Wanna See Something?
Perform (Magic Tricks)
Baffle your opponents with your deftly executed magic tricks! From squirting flowers to seemingly-endless multicolored scarves, the magician can rally the spirits of her party while distracting their enemies. Besides, what foe can resist the simple question, “Pick a card. Any card?”
2 Words. Sounds Like…
Charades is so much more than a party game. True devotees to the art of charades have spent a lifetime or more perfecting their technique. And, unlike mimes, they don’t need silly berets or striped shirts to get their point across. Speak death to your enemies without uttering a single syllable.
Those are Some Phat Beats, Yo
You don’t have to be Justin Timberlake to beatbox like a mo’ fo’. Astound (and dumbfound) your assailants as you lay down some enviable beats using nothing more than your sweet, sweet lips. <drops mic> I’m out.
