Bards
Spheres: Arms, Elemental
Prime stats: Aura, Influence
Mana stats: Aura, Influence
Spell Circles: Minor Elemental, Bard Spellsongs
   
Bards are semi-spell users who combine skill at arms with elemental magic. Their song spells allow them to enhance not only their own skills in combat, but those of all in their party. Bards are also masters of lore, adept at revealing the secrets of magic items. Nearly as versatile as Rangers, Bards are somewhat more adept at using magical devices, but less so at physical skills, such as combat or maneuvering. Heavy armor will restrict their spellcasting abilities.

Special commands

LORESING <lyrics>
While holding an item in your right hand, sing a song whose lyrics inquire about the nature of the object. Use a semicolon (;) to separate lines. For example:

loresing Sparkling stone I found this night;Tell me why you shine so bright?;Do you by chance possess a spell,;Or sharpen weapons very well?;Are you worth much if I sell,;Or should I throw you in the well?

If you are skilled enough and use the appropriate keywords, something of the item's nature will be revealed to you.
