|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 a cutscene of the Bard finding and drawing the magic sword Casgair, the Sword in the Stone in a classic "sword in the stone" scene. Predictably, there is a scripted mishap meant to be humourous.
