What's your favourite bard class from any edition of D&D, or other RPG? I'm a musician. If you want to check out my music just google my name. However, after a lifetime of music and gaming... I haven't played a game where what I know about music matches what the rules convey. That's cool. It is just a game. That being said, Music is such a big part of culture. It deserves something special, even magical, as part of a fantasy world.
So, help me out. I may have missed a game or you may have some houserules that will inspire me.
