|Motto||With a song for our friends, and a blow to the skull for our enemies.|
It is said that members of this class will share a song from deep in their hearts to all in their Realm, while those from other Realms get a lute to the head! Minstrels use the power of song to aid fellow Arthurians in their travels, making the miles fall away faster and stiffening their spines during battle. The earliest Minstrels were known to wander the Realm, recording the hardships and triumphs, successes and failures, of all. Their songs spread stories of heroism among their fellow survivors, as well as stories of King Arthur himself.
