|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 movies with the boss creature Herne that the Bard must defeat in the Forest Tower. At the tower, there is a very brief scene where Herne declares he will face the Bard at the top of the tower, if he manages to survive the foliage of the tower itself. At that point, the Bard expresses his frustration at the unnecessary drama, correctly pointing out that Herne was right there and they could have just cut to the chase and fought immediately.
