Description Edit | History

From the game box:

You are the Bard, a selfish rogue weary of pointless sub-quests and rat-infested cellars. Through magical song you summon characters to join you in battle-waging attacks, healing your party and taking damage on your behalf. Ready your weapon as you embark on a quest for coin and cleavage.

More Information Edit | History

Trivia:

Many of the games characters and names are from Celtic mythology and stories of the Orkney Islands.

The city of Dounby is only a few kilometers away from the ruins of Skara Brae where the original Bard's Tale trilogy takes place.

The towns of Kirkwall, Dounby, Finstown, Houton, and Stromness are the names of actual locations in the Orkney Islands. While Dún Ailinne, Ardagh, Carrowmore, Emain Macha, and Tara are the names of actual places in Ireland.
