Sirens: Battle of the Bards comes from Apotheosis Studios and friend of Nerdist Satine Phoenix. Characters from the live stream series Sirens also make appearances in this 300-page tome. With a name like Battle of the Bards, you know there’s going to be some bard-tastic content behind the colorful cover, and this supplement absolutely delivers.

Over 10 new bard subclasses, over 20 adventures, new magical items, and a huge city to explore? You’re going to need a Mage Hand to help you carry this massive book of adventure around. (Just a little bard joke for you.) There’s also a complete soundtrack from Jason Charles Miller (Starter Kit) and a Syrinscape soundset to fill out the setting.
