Bard (Stregari-Gestalt)
"A good Bard should be glib of tongue, light of heart, and fleet of foot (when all else fails)". A roguish storyteller, information gatherer, gadfly, roustabout, and/or general mischief maker, Bards are generalists par excellance. Bards often have a smattering of magic, a skillful dodge or three, and a trick or two with a blade up their sleeve. When the chips are down the Bard is rarely bereft of an option, and endlessly take their foes unawares with their multitudinous bag 'o tricks.
Bards tend to expand into whatever happens to interest them at the time, rarely bothering to follow an exacting regimine, a strict schedule, or a suggested course schedule. Bards with foresight tend to always be preparred for the next challenge, while more bon vivant Bards just hope that their skills will measure up when the time comes. Either way, Bards are often gap fillers in an adventuring group; taking the role of a thief, warrior, or spellcaster if the group lacks one. In a group with all the main niches filled, Bards tend to mold themselves into some arrangement which complements their fellows or which meets their fancy.

Stregaran (Gestalt)
The Stregari Magic System is detailed here.
This Package Deal is for Stregaran using the Gestalt Model
Stregarans practice an old form of Magic that is much feared in many areas of the world. Their Magic sometimes deals in dark forces and concentrates on subtle and insidious effects. They can be quite dangerous and often can accomplish things via threats alone for few wish to anger them or incite their wrath. In some areas their Magic is branded foul or "evil" and they are persecuted.
Stregarans are usually tight-nit and often form into groups called couvena (coo'VEN-nah). Couvena's are semi-democratic, with decisions being made by majority vote. Oddly, members of couvena tend to be cliqueish and don't have a lot of trust for members of other couvena, and typically a Stregaran will have to prove themselves to be accepted by a new couvena. Stregarans usually learn their Magic from an older relative or the members of their parents couvena.
NOTE: As indicated in the Stregari Magic System document, Stregarans do not have access to Spellcraft.
