The Faerie Bard
For commercial transactions, bards were the truth-tellers. As truth-tellers, the bards were feared because they were taken seriously when they called people heroes or villains. Bards were commonly believed to be able to look into a person's soul, and discover if there was any villainy there. And how could a person combat such a charge?
Faerie Fire | D&D 5th Edition on Roll20 Compendium
Killing a bard would be like burning down a newspaper office. It would only support the charge and confirm the villainy of the accused. This role of bards has been submerged in history, and they are remembered as a sort of wandering folk singer. Certainly they entertained people on cold winter nights before fires at inns, and before bonfires at holidays, and indeed for bards at the minor levels, this was all they knew how to do.
But there were classes and levels of bards, and the more advanced ones went through years of memory training. In cultures without writing, memory became extremely important, and those with the best memories rose to political heights. Ordinary bards, on the other hand, would simply remember hundreds of songs and act them out. Now the bards of the Fair Folk were more than singers. They were experts in transformation. If they sang about the hero Taliesin, they would take on his forms playing different roles.
They could also project mental images so if they sang, for instance, about the salmon of wisdom, all could see it splashing to climb to its heights. They became the heroes of the Fair Folk, took on the joy and modesty of princesses, and taught the secrets of sorcery by demonstrating self-transformation. A favorite topic of bards has been Oisin, a lost and wandering prince.
The lord of the forest, Cernumos, had many different adventures with animals. As time passes, he entices the world with a creation of his, which entrances the masses.
