Game Description

The Bard's Tale is an action RPG in which the player takes on the role of the Bard, a sardonic and opportunistic musician and adventurer driven by carnal rather than noble pursuits! As the Bard you will choose responses towards other characters with either 'snarky' or 'nice' dialogue. Each choice changes the course of events in the game. The action takes place in medieval times in a land based on the Orkney Islands off the coast of Scotland, the inspiration for many classic fantasy stories. Driven by the next generation of Snowblind's Everquest: Champions of Norrath Engine, this modern update of the classic PC RPG was dreamed up by original Bard's Tale producer, Brian Fargo.
