Famous Adventurer Here!
We are proud to announce another edition of Ars Heroica. This month, we focus on a true class act – the Bard. Yes, those premier performers have the spotlight on the Ars Heroica stage.
When the School for Heroes first opened its double doors to welcome all seekers of heroic education, we offered no sanctuary for those individuals whose hearts throbbed to the rhythm of the drumbeat. There was no place at our school for foolish frivolity or maudlin music. This was a place for serious education.
Even so, there joined a few students who were blessed by the muses with the gifts of melody and theatrical talent. Many of our Warriors also played musical instruments. The strains of arias sung by an operatic diva rang through the wizard walls. The very air vibrated with the voice of a classical violin.
It was obvious from our talented students that there is more to being a Hero than mere study and practice. Sometimes, it takes entertainment and inspiration to be a Hero.
The School for Heroes needs Bards.
I, the Famous Adventurer, am also a Bard. Nay, I do not sing and dance before an audience. My muses are those more serious symbols of history and epic writing, for I am the chronicler of heroic tales and guides. My stage is the book and my words inspire and enthrall the imagination of all who read them.
Most of us have a little Bard in our nature. We resonate with the beat of the band and sounds of a song. We are captivated by the cadence of a skilled communicator. We know that there is more to being a Hero than just doing good deeds. One person cannot change the world by himself. One person can inspire other people to change the world with him (or her).
We all need Bards.
