Hey guys,

When Dar-Wynn leveled to 4 she got 2 level 2 spells (and I found out that in the advanced race guide human bards can choose to know another spell instead of the extra hp or extra skill for favored class).  I'm thinking of choosing Chord of Shards for that spell. During a bardic performance can do 2d6 to all creatures in effected area.  It's either that or Detect Magic.

The real quandry is the 2nd level spells.  I'm not sure whether to go offensive or healing.  There is Cure Medium Wounds... but there is also a Delay Poison spell and we seem to encounter poison A LOT!

Offensively I like glitterdust because it blinds a large group and makes hidden people visible.
There is soundburst which does 1d8 to a large group of people.
And Hold person/Hypnotic Pattern keep them from acting.

So I'm of mixed emotions.  Which do you guys think would serve the party better... healing or offensive spells?

I would take the cure medium wounds since we seemed to be smacked down a lot.  We'll be running out of that wand soon enough and have a renewable source would make it last longer.  I wouldn't worry about the poison so much since as long as we have healing we'll be good and it's only useful in those particular circumstances.  The others sound useful and I don't have much of an opinion on.  I'd just take whatever has your fancy and go offensive.  Defiantly take the Cure Medium Wounds though, in my opinion.

I will point out that glitterdust IS one of the nicest second level spells around. It's an AoE blinding spell if they fail their save, that also turns off all forms of invisibility and stealth. Which is not to say Cure Moderate isn't also hella useful. It is. But never discount a good glitterdust.

I've got 2 2nd level spells.  I'm probably go with Glitterdust and Cure Med Wounds.

Hey Rob... Bards are limited to short bows.  Is there a way via feats or training to expand that to include long bows?  Or is Dar-Wynn hosed unless she takes a level of fighter?

The feat you are looking for is Martial Weapon Proficiency (Longbow).

Cool!  I didn't know if the bard could take that one or if there was a reason that bards were restricted from the longbow.
