Game description

The Bard's Lore is one of the few user-made games created with Interplay's The Bard's Tale Construction Set that have been preserved to this day. It features a completely new plot, new art, new spells, new monsters and puzzles, and is pretty hard. The playing mechanics remain the same as in the original Bard's Tale.
