The Quintessential Bard II

Watermarked PDF

There is magic in poetry and in stories, the way they can inspire people to reach towards impossible goals. Music has its own brand of magic, the manner in which it can mix a mere twelve notes and create pure emotion, talking to the heart and mind without need of words. Such is the magic of the bard, a singer of songs and teller of tales, a jack of all trades who finds his knowledge and power not in the dusty halls of a library or the obscure heritage of a strange bloodline, but in the whim of inspiration and the freedom of the roads. The diversity with which he approaches life makes him capable of tackling almost any situation, not as well as a specialist but with sufficient expertise to come out on top.

With the help of this sourcebook, any character choosing the bard class will find many alternatives and options for expanding his range of abilities. With Career Paths, bards can customise their advancement with their chosen branch of training. The Legendary Bard offers an expansion of character features that elevates the bard to epic levels and beyond. Multiclassing gives advice on to how best integrate two classes, while Superior Tools ensure that his performance is unparalleled. The Magical Bard offers a new range of magical items while Tricks of the Trade provides new rules for Spellsongs, Scores and Metamusic feats. Power Performances broadens the bardic music ability even further, opening up a large number of new art forms and styles for a bard to pursue. Finally, Survival Tactics covers how best to build a bard character for a number of different roles.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
