I'll come in with a dissenting voice here. While there are certainly a
number of excellant bards in Oertha and a high level of bardic activity,
I've found Oerthan bardic circles to be very "closed" in feel. I.e., if
you aren't one of the regulars, or have one of the regulars promoting you,
or are comfortable competing for attention in an atmosphere where getting
heard necessarily means interrupting someone else, then chances are you
aren't going to get to perform. I've never had a particularly good
experience as a performer at an Oerthan-run bardic.
