The Bard is one of the character classes available to players in the Wizardry series of games. It is an advanced class, introduced in Wizardry VI, which blends some of the features of the Thief and the Mage, while acquiring a unique skill with Music. The Bard is the equivalent in Wizardry of a fairly common archetype in fantasy games, the Bard, Minstrel or Troubadour.
