Gaining The Bard ArchetypeEdit
First you must ally with an empire following this philosophy with a strength factor of 4 or 5, then you may request to become 'like' them from the mission interface. After paying §10,000,000, the mission given is to collect 25 rare artifacts. Upon completion return to claim your reward and you will change your philosophy and associated archetype, losing your old superpower and gaining the Bard's Soothing Song power.
Note that you may not collect 25 artifacts and then automatically complete the mission upon its acceptance. You must accept and pay for the mission first, THEN collect 25 artifacts.
