A Chief Bard is a Herald of Epic Stories. They spin tales from the ancient past and bring them into the present. Myths and legends become literary realities for the listener to dwell upon and keep within their hearts.
A Chief Bard uses the same methods of his or her training, only to a greater extent, and using arcane and druidic magics to aid in the enhancement of their song and story telling. It is said that music has a special magic. Nowhere is this more true than in the hands, or on the lips, of a bard. The Chief Bard is often located in palaces and courts having attained such a refined ability to story tell, sing, or entertain that they are well sought after in the higher noble circles.
They can use any single handed weapon. Having attained the rank of Arch they can use a pole arm in place of the quarterstaff.
Able to use cloth or leather armor they can wear D1 on the meter for armor. For magical resistance they can wear M2 on the meter.
If they fill the spot of Arch Druid on the battle field they can get one resurrection. They can literally sing life back to the dead.
