Manawydan was one of the finest bards, a true friend to elder bards, and a paragon for younger ones to aspire to. He was one of the first bards I knew that I felt could wear the troubadour title truly.
Manawydan and Larisah were one of the greatest bardic couples Elanthia has ever seen. I'm not sure if they were together longer than Klinara and I have been, but if not, it's about as close as any couple I've met really comes.
Perhaps one of his best remembered lyrics is Roll the Die, a tale of gambling and adventure with a little lechery thrown in for spice...
This was another of the songs I recently performed at the "Old Bards' Night" concert.
