My current run - half elf Lavinia, an arcane trickster. And as someone asked (I don't find the thread anymore): yes you can get the performance feat (and a lute) without spending a feat at 4th level, by helping Alfira in a certain way - let her give you the lute and play along - after two performance checks, you have done it and can now play all instruments (and for Niara, who doesn't like 'The Weeping Dawn': it's entirely skipped that way). My arcane trickster is now a wannabe bard.

Very nice choices...she looks amazing!

I have two profiles active ATM and my active hasn't interacted with Alfira yet...I will defiantly get Bardified.
