Bard College of Percussion


Here is what some reviewers have to say!

"Between the faction, adventure, NPCs, magic items, and video links for each included instrument, this supplement is a fantastic DM resource. All that combined with beautiful imagery and a professional layout, I highly recommend this supplement."  

-Bob World Builder

"It's so close to being absolutely perfect! There's a wealth of stuff here!"

-All Things Lich

"The Bard College of Percussion is rated 5 stars and is Highly Recommended for anyone who wants more bardic options, either player or NPC, at their table. With well- designed archetypes, magic items, NPCs and more, there’s something here for everyone. 5/5 Stars"

- Table Top Level Up

"Chad has packed a lot into a relatively short product and at $3.95, it’s a steal. On a page-count basis, that price is about average. But the quality of the content is far above average."

- Nonzerosum Games

The Bard College of Percussion is a bard RESOURCE BOOK that includes the following:

  • 2 New Bard Colleges

  • 3 Unique Backgrounds 

  • 17 Percussion Instruments

  • A Unique Faction: Seekers of Kurtulmak

  • A Lair and Short Adventure

  • 3 NPC Percussionists

  • 12 Original Magical Percussion Instruments

Two Colleges With Their Own Flavor

The pitched-percussion bards are valued for their peaceful, hypnotic, and healing melodies, as well as their ability to confound and confuse enemies. The non-pitched-percussion bards play rousing beats that reach deep within the primitive parts of their listeners’ minds and hearts, causing a rise in furor, fear, and fury!

Gives You Options

There are plenty of percussion instruments to choose from! There is even a resource with links that show you video examples of what the instruments look and sound like!

Makes Your Game Better

The unique backgrounds and magical percussion instruments can add a lot of flair and immersion to your drumming bard! And, if you are a DM, the percussionist NPC’s, faction, and mini-adventure can easily add new content to your current game with a minimum of effort.

This to date is my favorite product that I have made. I tried to add flexibility to both mechanics while keeping roleplaying in mind. As with my other products, I also give the DM some treats in there too: a small adventure, some NPC's that have some hooks for their imaginative goodness. I hope that you consider supporting this product! Thank you!

Rules Edition(s)
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
