2021.09.21 02:46 BelgarathMTH Fantasy Inspiration for Those who Love Bards
Hello, I posted this same topic over on the Beamdog off-topic forums, in case there's any overlap of readers here. Hello, I've been playing Final Fantasy XIV recently, and I discovered how they do bards there. The whole class is the FFXIV equivalent of an Archer prestige class, and you automatically become a bard in that game if you start as an archer. There's a whole chain of quests and cutscenes that teach you the history and culture of bards in the setting, and it rewards you as you go through it.
The whole experience has gotten me very interested in revisiting old games where barding is possible (BG, NWN, and Pillars of Eternity are the only other ones that come immediately to mind), and continuing my bard fantasy over several games.
This thread is a place for bards to assemble and share lore and ideas. I'd like inspiration from famous bards in literature and games, TV and movies. (The only classic bards in history and literature that come to mind immediately are Alan-a-Dale from Robin Hood lore, and of course, "The Bard" from real life, Shakespeare.)
What do you think of FFXIV's idea of linking archery to the bard class, and building on that idea? For me, it opens up a lot of possibilities for my fantasy gaming as a bard. I've researched the pre-historic link between archery and musical bows, and only found a few interesting tidbits, most of which is speculation. Most musicians accept that bows and harps likely arose in pre-history from hunting bows, and the archers' noticing that the released bow string made a musical "twang" or "snap" that could be satisfying to the musical part of human consciousness.
I've found a lot of videos and references to two African musical bow instruments that are still in use today, and I think I remember but still need to research bowed instruments of India, and whether those have any connection to archery.
Thanks for any input and sharing of idea. It's what we bards do. :)

Pretty self explanatory, it’s the black chest and legs glitch. I did the archive invalidation thing I don’t even know how many times over and reinstalled it more times than I can count but it just doesn’t work. Does anyone have any ideas? I use Vortex btw.

2021.09.21 02:46 kdcnbwkq Absolute Hell; a series of events that almost ended in me losing a piercing
It all started when my piercer put in an adorable heart piece for my helix, it fit my ear perfectly so she said to be careful as my ear might be angry if it was the slightest bit too tight. Thankfully my ear was fine! and it stayed fine up until two days ago when I started getting a small irritation bump. I didn't worry too much and just took extra care of it, however, today my ear looked red and the irritation bump had gotten worse. I started to realize that the jewelry (specifically the pointy part of the heart) was poking my ear as well as putting pressure on the bump. I knew that I was going to have to change the bar to a longer one. So I started cleaning my ear, as I was getting ready, MY EAR STARTED SWALLOWING THE JEWELRY. I was panicking and fished out the jewelry and, after some effort, got the jewelry out. If I hadn't had the longer bar on hand, I would have probably lost the piercing for good.

Would you like it if people always treated you like a queen? Like if people did anything that you ask, called you Queen [X], and overall treated you as superior?

2021.09.21 02:46 amethystss im confused
sorry if this doesnt really make sense, i've just been thinking about this a lot and its hard to put it into words
so, basically, im 16 and ive been wondering whether or not im on the aro spectrum. ive thought about the possibility of me being ace before, but the concept of sexual attraction is a lot easier to define than romantic attraction. i know what sexual attraction is, even though ive never experienced it but i have no idea what romantic attraction is so i dont even know if i experience it or not.
i've only ever had one crush (kind of?) but even that crush was incredibly short lived, and i only developed it after hearing that she thought i was attractive. ive thought about the possibility of being in a relationship and the thought of it makes me incredibly uncomfortable. the thing is i have terrible social anxiety, and some trauma related to friendships ive had in the past that has left me having a very hard time trusting people. so im not sure if me being uncomfortable with the thought of a romantic relationship is because im aro or because im traumatized and not ready for that. i still want a relationship though, but i just dont know if i actual want a romantic relationship or if i just want companionship.
