***** 2013 ***** Sometimes you are alone in UO - be it because you decide to be alone or because there just isn't anyone out there. Please imagine a bard that might not know everything about things that are new in 2013. --- Think of a bard with 2-4 bardic skills + something like Animal Taming or Mysticism. Or even Throwing or Archery if need be. Imagine a trained bard, not a bard in training. The bard will have enough gear to get by but gear won't be 'über'. The bard surely wants to take something home - gold, artifacts, valueables. The bard is not the greediest kind, though. The bard does not want to think of his / her adventure as a waste of time that would have been conducted better by a sampire. Where does the lonesome bard fight monsters for fun these days?
