You could even do animated screenshots for the battles and throw a few mp3 links around while your bard is making music. ;-)
I was already planning on including mp3s (or midi files) of the bard's music every so often. Showing the animation would be cool, but I've never done animated GIFs before, so it might be too much work.

And with everyone recommending different versions, maybe what version I play will be the first piece of audience interaction.

That's an awesome argument, though it is inaccurate about it being the last port since both the Mac and the NES versions came out later.
