|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 diaogues with the Bard's conjured companions at the end of the game. The final scenes in The Bard's Tale begin when the Bard enters Dounby Tower and confronts Fionnaoch. After battling his way to the top, he is presented with a choice of whether to side with Fionnaoch or Caleigh.
