Over the years, I have witnessed amazing tales and feats of bardic.
One night a Crusading Knight came to our bardic fire. He told of how
important it was to go on the Crusades. Then he slowly pulled out his
sword, knelt beside it and prayed in Latin.
A man traveling with merchants along the silk road told of a silver
smith that was ordered by the Empire to make a bell with perfect pitch
and tone. The problem was to make such a bell required a blood sacrifice.
I remember songs sang that made you cry and laugh. Once a man played a
bagpipe outside the circle in the shadows. The eerie sound was
heard drifting on the wind.
At the bardic camp, the surrounding area is dark, you only see faces of
people sitting around a circle focusing on different travelers near the
soft light of the fire. Here characters come to life and are real in
this place and time.
I invite all characters come tell us of your travels and minstrels to
make us laugh and cry. Come to the Bardic Circle at the Bryn Gwlad Fall
Event Celebration of Virtue on October 30th.
