The Fantasy Art of The Bard's Tale - Lever on the Wrong Side

The Fantasy Art of The Bard's Tale

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's commentary on how certain tasks are all too conveniently set up. In this particular case, in an implausible way. At the same time, in having a scene to make fun of other stories with similar setups, The Bard's Tale uses the very mechanic it derides for the same convenience to the protagonist and to move the story along. There was, however, a second gate with the lever this time properly behind it.
