What could be better than a night at the inn, tankard in hand, listening to a bard tell tales of faraway lands and great heroes? His story has it all- brilliant wizards, beastly monsters, and buxom lasses always ready for a smile and a good time. Alright, so I made up the lasses, but the rest is true.

Mmmm very good! :D As what the others said, sensible and great rhymes, awesome story, and beautiful imagery (I mean, if you count spit flying out of mouths beautiful... It's the imagery!)

The only thing I have to say is that the rhymes and sentences weren't in sync, so where the stanzas would end, the sentence (thought) didn't - you changed rhyme scenes in the middle of a sentence. I know it's really hard to do that, and I see the work you put into this!

This is one of the more classical ballads, and it's one of the better ballads I've ever read. :D

The writing in this was pretty remarkable, and the pictures were a added bonus that certainly enhanced the reading experience.

Oh, and it had rhymes :) The effort and detail that was placed into this ballad was very impressive. I really found myself being drawn in by the imagery and writing.

Bravo on creating a very amazing ballad, pugpup! ^_^

I can't remember the last time I gave out an 8. Maybe I never have? But holy crap, this was fantastic. The framing story and the ballads meshed perfectly, and every path worked as an engaging story and ploy in its own right.

VERY well done, I'm seriously impressed. You should've bet more points, because you've got this contest in the bag.

This has definitely got to be one of the best stories in here!
The narrative is amazing and the fact that it is written in the form of a novel and a song is great!
The rhymes are on point and the endings are also amazing. Congratulations on this masterpiece!

I thoroughly enjoyed the Bard's Tale. Wish it could be longer just so I could enjoy it more.
