|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 where the Bard can taunt one of the mini-bosses into fighting him alone. Ironically, there is no comment on the Bard ganging up on Cathbad with his own allies and conjurations.
