When a traveling bard stumbles into a dragon’s den, he is forced to tell stories to the fire-breathing menace or end up being eaten. Eventually running out of stories to tell, he makes a deal with the dragon: for his freedom, he will return with new tales of adventure, romance, and bravery. Tales of the Dragon’s Bard is the story of his quest to collect the most exciting stories he possibly can, and Eventide is the first town he encounters. With wish-women, gnomes, a centaur farmer, a resident Gossip Fairy, and a blacksmith dwarf, those living in Eventide have enough going on to keep the Dragon’s Bard busy collecting–especially if he can liven up those adventures a bit with his own ridiculous plots.– B&N
