Bards of this college learned long ago that if you want more people to pay attention and listen, the easiest way to make that happen is to force them to listen. Using their voices or instruments they have learned to perfect the frequencies that they project. These frequencies creep into the mind of those that hear it and slowly chokes out all other thoughts.
It seems to be the debate of the ages. The argument between railroading and free choice. That difference between a linear adventure and an amazing open world campaign. The fact is that somewhere between these ideas is what we actually call Dungeons & Dragons or more widely, the RPG.
