For the location, see Bards College (Location).

The Bards College is a joinable faction that appears in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. The guild consists of bards, poets, and public speakers. Joining the college requires completing a quest for the guild's headmaster, Viarmo. Located in Solitude, the quest "Visit the Bards College" can be initiated by asking any bard in any tavern where they learned to play and sing.

History

The Bards College was first formed during the Second Era as part of the Guilds Act.[1][2]

Upon entering the Bards College, admission can be requested from Viarmo. He will ask you to go to Dead Men's Respite to retrieve the missing verses from a poem about King Olaf One-Eye, called King Olaf's Verse. However, some of the verses are missing, so the player and Viarmo will have to make up their own lines for the poem, so that it can be read to Solitude's Jarl. The player must then attend the burning of Olaf's effigy, and speak to Viarmo to join the Bards College.

Advantages and disadvantages

After becoming a member of the guild,  items can be freely used or taken from the college. Contrastingly, the College contains no loot of immense value, but does contain many, many books. Book collectors and lore-enthusiasts may value this. Also, the eletric guitar easter-egg is an advantage to others, but it does not offer any real benefits.

  • Only Viarmo is labeled as essential.
  • Despite joining the college and becoming a full-fledged bard by completing all the available quests, there is still no way as of yet to play any instrument in-game.
