The Stray Hellcats have initiated a revival of a slightly older musical form, to great acclaim.

In a long-lost island city destoyer by a volcano, there was a human-scaled statue of Kool Korran that someone turned into an intelligent, free-willed stone golem. Now known as Billy the Idol, it makes its way through the world as a bard of...acquired taste.

Job for a Minotaur is making a name for themselves with their guttural vocals.

There’s a few undead bardic groups that have been in the news: The Zombies, The Shadows, Wight Lion, The Revenant Horton Heat, Cherub Poppin’ Deadies, The Damned and many more. Rumors have it that Phil Spectre is behind their rise to fame.

Also, I remember* a 3e player commenting "I mean, 'Fiendish Dire Weasel' just sounds like a punk band, to me..."

* I'd say, "back in the day" but my day was further back than that, heck 2000-anything still feels like the effing future, to me, sometimes.


Lord of the Hidden Layer

During a church-hosted Super Bowl party a dozen years ago, somebody else's kid called me Old. I told him "I remember when the Word of the Lord came unto Abraham in the city of Ur in the land of the Chaldees." The look on his face was priceless.
