Bard: College of Lore 3 - 2 =1 too generic
It is bitterly ironic that "not generic enough" is the reason most things failed to win in their respective individual class survivors, and now "too generic" is what makes something lose
in the final round. Particularly when the friggin Thief
is also on the list, and is literally the second-most-generic subclass ever written, just behind Champion.
Though I suppose I should take 3rd place as a surprisingly good show, all things considered. People kept pronouncing the Bard dead all throughout. It almost beat the one everyone expected to squeak out a victory.
Now I just have to decide whether I want the option I find incredibly, painfully generic and bland, or the one I dislike due to what options it excludes from consideration purely by existing. Decisions, decisions.
