What is Bardick Magick?
The Bards were poets, musicians and singers in the Celtic world, storytellers and a keepers of tradition. They were the custodians of the sacredness of the Word. They were required to master hundreds of verses or develop new one, without the use of writing. The bards passed their poems or songs, as oral tradition, to their apprentices, from generation to generation. Like the druids, the bards enjoyed special treatment in the normally warrior society. Music is so much a part of a Bard’s life that he weaves it through everything he does. Thus, it should come as no surprise that the Bards have discovered a way to blend music into the magical weave to create spell songs. Bardic magic is a highly specialized form of magic. Some Bards can produce magical effect by song whereas others utilize instruments or even a mixture of the two. Some of the powers are magical in nature, while others acquired the gift of divination or insight.
