I am in love with this product! From the new subclasses to the backgrounds and to the magic items and so much more. One of my players have been trying to figure out what type of bard to be and this was perfect!

Not only does this contain some of the most well-designed subclasses you are likely to find on the DMsGuild, it is also packed with information on how to contextualize a Bard following this college (from sample colleges to instrument varies, and more!). You are getting more than you money's worth by spending $5.95 on this.

Even if you're just a Dungeon Master who isn't as interested in the archetype, there is a lot of material here to aid you in world-building and NPC creation. I highly suggest at least checking out the preview before clicking away.

The Bard College of Percussion is much more than a subclass! It's a great supplement for any DM or player who wants to enhance the music of their world. Percussion instruments are deeply rooted in human history. We associate drums with our own beating hearts, and it makes me wonder how other creatures of the D&D multiverse relate to their hypnotic power.

The pitched and non-pitched colleges create soothing and commanding rhythms respectively, and the backgrounds provide specification for any musically-inclined characters. Particularly, I like the street musician's "Impromptu Performance" earnings table which saves DMs from having to improvise every time their bard tries to draw a crowd! Also the military drummer background provides an interesting story for how PCs may have been involved in war at a young age.

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.

Had a blast with this supplement this passed week. I have to say I don't see a lot of drum and thump style bards. this supplement really highlights the fun it can bring to the role playing in the game. Especially the war drummer background. Totaly rocked my sharpen drum sticks as daggers. Spinning and twirling in between my fingers. Was fantastic. The mechanics are creative and seem pretty well balanced. Clearly a lot of work and playtesting went into these archetypes. Well done.

Drums signifiy something that is innately part of humanity - the need for a beat, for a rhythm. Most bands who don't have drums suffer, in my opinion, as they do not have the steady backbone a full drum set supplies - and while a bass guitar might fill that voice, a drummer usually has the loudest personality. Enter Chad's Bard College of Percussion, and let me tell you this bad boy is LOADED! Chad fits so much into 32 pages that it is mind boggling it all stays put - "...2 New Bard Colleges, 3 New Backgrounds, 17 New Instruments, A Faction: Seekers of Kurtulmak, A Lair and Short Adventure, 3 NPC Percussionists, 12 Magical Percussion Instruments.." - it is chockerbock full of awesome content. I think one of my favorite pieces from this supplement is the Combat Drummer background, as that just opens up so much roleplay potential in mind. And I also really dig the amount of new ethnic instruments that Chad added - handpan and dholak for life. Overall, this is an amazing addition to any player's library, especially those who frequent bardic characters.

I'm biased because I play the drums, but this supplement seems really good, I recommend it!
