I, on the other hand, have never known a College of Bards, and I very much do consider myself a bard. While I've never known a College of Bards, I have known a fair number of well-known and talented bards, who have inspired, encouraged, and educated me on the bardic arts. I have also had the pleasure to know very supportive patrons of bardic arts (who are not bards themselves), who have likewise encouraged me.
While I encourage a more structured community for bards, I haven't lacked for the want of one. College or no, I'll continue to strive to become a better bard. Having a College might serve to help me become a better bard faster. I think it will also help me become a better bardic teacher.

The year was 1981 or so, and he was Lord Robin of Gilwell. The College is why I'm a bard. Without the College, I would be a fencer and a fighter and a herald and lots of other things, but I would not be a bard. How many Robins have we missed because there was no official group at events to welcome them in?
