Strap in for a fiery ride across the skies in today's episode of Battle Bards! While Dragon's Prophet was not fated to last long -- at least in North America -- it did leave behind a treasure trove of music that we've only started to dig into. The bards get a little dragonish themselves for this show, perhaps of a different opinion of what constitutes the perfect score for giant flying lizards.
