Video description
"The Bard" is not only an essential class in any D&D party, but a byword for England's most famous writer. We've covered a bit of Shakespeare before on OSP — just a bit, really, nothing major, only a dozen — but today we'll look at how William got to Bard-ing, and how he accidentally became England's biggest Historian.
