Music and song can invoke a special magic which supports other archetypes as well as being a potent force in itself. This is the type of magic that every bard taps into. Indeed, bards compose their own songs, imbuing them with certain magical powers. They can be found throughout Lusternia, both in cities and communes. Bard use Music and must maintain a musical instrument, and they develop strong bonds to their chosen instrument. They then specialize in the particular form of Music used by their class. All bards keep in top physical condition through a study in Acrobatics. City bards choose a third skill from Dramaturgy, Illusions, or Tarot. Commune bards maintain a close affinity to nature and choose between Dramaturgy, Illusions, or Hunting with a specialization of Ecology.
