A Cli lyre (pronounced: /kliklee[4]) was a masterwork magic lyre and one of the Instruments of the Bards.[2][1]

Description[edit | edit source]

Cli lyres were superior in every way to ordinary lyres.[1] Like other Instruments of the Bards, they could only be used properly by bards, and could be dangerous if anyone else attempted to play or even carry them.[2][1]

Powers[edit | edit source]

Bards wielding a Cli lyre had their charming abilities greatly amplified by their magic.[1]

Like all Instruments of the Bards, these lyres had the capability of storing spells. A bard playing a Cli lyre could invoke the spells fly, invisibility, levitate, protection from evil and good, stone shape, wall of fire and wind wall each once a day, until the instrument recharged its magic at the next dawn.[1]

History[edit | edit source]

The first Cli lyres were created by a legendary bard in the Moonshae Isles named Falataer. He used them to test and reward the students of the Cli level of his bardic college,[2] which came to be regarded individually as a legendary bard college in its own right.[1]

Over time, other bards have copied the original design, while retaining the original name in Falataer's honor.[2]
