However, don't be surprised if one day you discover that you're a more poetic person than you thought—it wouldn't be the first time a Bard found a poetic voice he didn't even know he had.

Selene wrote:I haven't observed that to be the usual case, probably because there's much more to the Bardic course than just the basics, but each person experiences things differently so I wouldn't want to say you wouldn't. It takes a year, minimum, and I think most people, regardless of background, take from 18 months to two (and often more) years to work through the course to their satisfaction. But since it's the journey, not the destination , this isn't a bad thing!
