Bard

Type-Two Persona: Explorer, Storyteller

Favourite play activities include:

  • Travel writing
  • Having new emotional experiences
  • Reading fantasy / science-fiction
  • Exploration (of culture as well as geography)

A Bard is a Type-Two Play Persona, combining Explorer and Storyteller. They are on an eternal search for new experiences and stories to tell about them. For a Bard, these two things cannot be separated - the journey is the story, and the story must be about the journey. You may hear tales of fantasy from a Bard, but they will be telling you about human experience and the condition of being alive. For a Bard unless they are constantly fed new ways of seeing the world they do not feel alive - so don't be surprised if they're up and off before they've finished telling you the current tale.

Combines traits of basic, type-one personas:

Explorer

Type-One Persona: Explorer

Favourite play activities include:

  • Treasure-hunts
  • Travel
  • Trying new cuisines

An Explorer is a basic, single-type Play Persona. Motivated by a sense of adventure, an explorer likes to discover new things. That could be new music, always looking for the latest (though not necessarily the greatest) band. They often love travel - and the more unusual and different from their normal experience the better.

Storyteller

Type-One Persona: Storyteller

Favourite play activities include:

  • Writing
  • Lecturing
  • Sharing experiences
  • Imagining
  • Role-Playing

A Storyteller is a basic, Type-One Play Persona. Enjoying sharing their experience (though not necessarily using words) a storyteller often uses play to form memories as much as for the experience itself. They love to imagine - and to share the product of their imaginings with their fellow travellers. On occasion this can tend towards storytellers seeming a little distant from the action, but be reassured that this is just them storing up information to relate back later!
