Glissando is a reknowned and mischievious bard from Talador.


Appearance recorded prior to the Baronial Coronation on 2/8/2014.

You see Wandering Minstrel Glissando.
He appears to be a Human from Talador.
He is taller than average and appears to be middle-aged.  He has mirthful cobalt blue eyes and tanned weather-beaten skin.  He has naturally sun-bleached, finger-combed dark blonde hair that falls to his broad shoulders.  He has a square-jawed face, a straight nose and a healthy amount of greying stubble on his chin.  His eyes are framed by deep laugh lines.
He is in good shape.
He is holding a birds-eye maple mandolin with an ivory-fretted rosewood neck in his right hand.
He is wearing an ivory shark tooth pendant suspended from a leather thong, an ecru cotton instrument back-sling slung over his shoulder, a tight-fitting brown leather vest over an open-necked muslin shirt, and some roan horse-hide trousers tucked into scuffed leather knee-boots.


A traveling minstrel who rooted himself in the Bitter Bite in Talador for many months, enjoying drinks and lasses and tales of old. He left Talador before they went to war with Wehnimer's Landing, as he did not want to get caught up in the political affairs in the area. It is said his journey took him far south into the Turamzzyrian Empire.
