Motto The power of words is greater than any instrument.

Though they are musicians, Skalds do not use musical instruments to power their abilities. Instead, they rely simply upon their words, amplified with certain magical accoutrements. With their Viking training, they are also the most adept at using weapons of any of the bard-like classes in the Realms. They also grow more powerful as the battle rages, trying to keep their emotions under control…most of the time.
