Bentaven the bard provides a charming foil for any adventuring group. Written so that his schemes can be inserted into almost any adventure, the bard is always just a little too witty to get caught and a little to full of himself to get away without taking the opportunity to tip the party off to brilliance of his schemes.
Each of Bentaven's appearances in written as a separate Tale, complete with a short story and the details of the bard's current scheme. These are fun little scenes that, sprinkled in over the course of a campaign, paint Bentaven as a minor villain who you almost end up cheering for, just to see what he might do next.
This book is a fun read and provides some great levity for any long-running campaign!
