|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 scene when the Bard first acquires the singing Ego Sword from the firbolg miners. It is an awesome weapon, but the actual singing (when the Bard wanted to conjure a companion) was somewhat boring "la la la la..." fitted to tune.
