4e bard image revealed!

I would be so happy. In 2e I tried to convince my GM that (at higher levels) my bard should be able to call his mariachi posse, just like fighters and clerics got all those followers.

What kind of name is Fafhrd anyway?
Sounds like you tried to create "Fred" in an MMO and that was as close as you could come.
Fritz Leiber, yes irony sarcasm

Is this that humor thing that the Intarwebs don't do so well? Maybe?

Just google "Gray Mouser"

He was sneaky and put a line in black text under the pretended ignorance of Fritz Leiber's books. Sneaky sarcasm. I was all set to make a reply about the ignorance of all these kids today, but caught the black text on the quote line in my reply. *BURNED*! :D

Sorry. I forgot that the encrusted layers of nonsense and meta-nonsense around here make it difficult to distinguish sarcastic jocularity from actual bitter nerd rage. I'll try to use sarcasm tags in the future.
Yeah, sorry -- I missed the sarcasm; I should have picked up on the video-game reference. I've been rendered cynical by the amount of ridiculous nerd rage that propagates the forums (overuse of the word 'cool', et al).

I assume this is the marketing strategy to bring more women into the game. It might work with some of the women I know. Of course it would probably work even better if the players looked that way.
I am afraid you'll have to wait for the 5th edition for that. Then the 3D Printing and Modelling will be advanced enough to allow you using the DDI character visualizer on yourself...

Scott, I hate to point this out, but soon after that image, two of the three of those bards were corpses (unless this is from Once Upon A Time In Mexico, which I have not yet seen, as opposed to a similar scene in Desperado), and the one that wasn't clearly had epic levels in the Total Badass prestige class.

Bard nerfed in 4e, except for the totally broken El Mariachi build which now makes all other classes look like roadies among a rockstar.

But, Oh Scott Rouse and others at WOTC, there is one thing you must do if you want to make me love 4e...

You MUST make the bard cool.

No doubt. If you were to release a bard preview that make my beloved class fun to play again, I would be in your court. I would swallow the kool-aid. I would sing the fan-praises.

Oh please, oh please, make my bard cool.

Einan said:
He can be as late as he needs to be, as long as he's cool. I get more grief from my gaming group when I play a bard than any time I DM and use any number of sad little D&D tropes. I love me the bard. I love his horrible singing and I love his random knowledge of strange and useless things. I just want him to be cool again.

Wow, you really over-used the word "cool." ;)

Hmm. Roadies ... among a rockstar ... El Mariachi build ...

Sorry! Just getting my notes together.

I knew it! And I know what will happen next too! Everyone will want to play the power gamer race (kobolds on steroids) and take bard to make the band:

Well kick those roadies in the *** and get the show on the road!

As you round a corner in the road you see the Monsters Of Rock approaching, they see you, the distance is 60 squares. Roll for initiative.

You say that like it's mutually exclusive. What, only one class per CS book?

Bard might be in PHB2 though. They said that PHB2 would introduce Primal and Psionic, not that there wouldn't be any more Arcane, Martial or Divine classes. You can have both.

Well that's what happens when an Epic Bard with Badass Destiny takes his "merely" Heroic colleagues on an Epic quest with an equally Epic Defender to protect them. Lesson learned, OK?
