Bards: Brothers of the Dark Vision

Post by Havard » Mon Apr 08, 2019 10:18 pm

These are bards who are able to tell really scary stories (According to the BMPG). A pretty silly concept, or can something be done with it? Details are sparse so we can be a bit creative. Ideas?

Nightmares keep magic users from being able to memorize spells the next morning....

There’s quite a few fear effects that can be raided from different sources. Maybe they could summon a hag under the right circumstances?

Guys, this is great input! Now, how about making these into a type of bards with connections to the Far Realm/Dimension of Nightmares? :twisted:

Specific abilities will vary depending on edition ofcourse, but I am thinking replacing charm/inspiration with fear type powers. Summoning is also a really interesting idea! :cool:
