Fellow bards of the realms. Pray listen to my simple plea.
Our spell lists grow at a tremendous rate, many o' incantation need verbal utterance to initiate. What say you! What literally doth thou speak to cause Dancing Lights to flit, spark, and bleep? What words of spite do you spit and yell when asking thine blade to True Strike? Share with us young bardlings your secret refrain, those lyrics that causes souls to get lost in your Hallucinatory Terrain! What thrill, dark laced secrets spill- from your learned voice when you end an enemy with Power Word Kill?

She asked the group as we approached if we were alive and Reako pulled his best zombie walk and said "Noooooo." in a zombie moan. She then blew a signal whistle that caused the halflings guard of the village to charge forth.)
The Dwarves are coming to battle, hear them shake and rattle. It's safe to assume, that they will be your doom. - Spirit Gaurdians (poem by Reako Swah'Vay, his spirit guardians took on the form of Darvish battle ragers in their spiked armor.)
