So in all my musings about “IRL class” choices… I forgot the one that fits me best…
I play with words, weaving magic with them whenever possible.
Entertaining is something I delight in, it’s important to me that the people around me have a good time.
While a Sorceress would have a familiar, I don’t think Pixie gives me any distinct advantages (save for the sanity that having a cat brings me).
There’s something about me that loves and hates being the center of attention, but I think I like it more than I bristle at it.
And there’s even a 3.5/Pathfinder feat called “Bardic Knowledge” that addresses the diversity of tidbits that they acquire over time, much as I have a host of trivia floating in my brain space.
So while I can’t carry a tune unless you give me a bucket to keep it in… I think I’m a Bard!
