Anyone have some tips on role playing a minstrel? The idea that words and songs can "inspire" allies to do better I think can be justified, but I am having trouble reconciling the idea that a shout or or song could kill enemies in tolkien's middle earth during the third age from a "person" (be it human, dwarf, hobbit or elf). How do others reconcile the existence of such power and the fact that it is not really in existence during the war of the rings. I understand the the power of song comes from ideas from the Silmarillion. Im just curious how others role play this. ( Not finding an answer is not going to stop me from RP my hobbit minstrel).

But the idea that this power was still capable of "anyone" during the third age still gets to me.
