|The Bard's Tale is a fantasy computer role-playing game where the protagonist is a bard -- a type of adventurer-minstrel -- with a quintessential "rogue" stereotype and set in a Gaelic world. The game art is period and geographically appropriate, and characters are a mix of realistic and caricatured. The monsters are quite non-standard (no orcs and goblins, for a change) though not with art so outlandish as to make them look alien.
||This Bard's Tale fantasy game art gallery features the movie at the beginning of the game, as well as the actual in-game cutscene when the Bard reaches the event foreshadowed in the intro movie. In the game, the Bard is scripted to conjure exactly those companions pictured in the intro movie.
