Perform

Bards are not the only ones that can perform. These are some ideas of what else you could do with the skill beyond the description in the player’s handbook:

  • Acrobatics
  • Act – stage performances, sock puppets
  • Comedy – joke telling to inspire courage in a dungeon (did you hear the one about the orc and the halfling???)
  • Dance – belly dancing to distract the bad guys, dancing for royalty, using perform to gain the attention of the audience while your compatriot’s pull off a heist
  • Juggling – balls or pins or even small torches (you better be good at that or burn thy fingers!)
  • Magic – a spellcaster with prestidigitation could earn a few coins this way
  • Oratory – a key ability of a bard is to weave a story to enthrall the listeners
  • Sing – a great way to be able to keep your hands free in a fight
  • Stilts – using wooden stilts to walk above the crowd in a parade would give you a crow’s eye view of things
