So, I just finished the finders Stone trilogy and loved every second of it. I had a question about the nameless bard, what happened to him, and did any other novel pick up where his story left off?

Wasn't Finder the nameless bard?

If you mean Joel, the Rebel Bard, he received no further mention in any fiction or gaming products other than a write up in one of the Dragon Annual magazines. And sleyvas is right, the deity Finder was the Nameless Bard.

Assuming you're referring to Finder, you do see more of him in two of the three Lost Gods novels, Finder's Bane and Tymora's Luck.

The second novel in that trilogy is a Dragonlance one called Fistandantilus Returns; all that book does for the trilogy is introduce one character, a kender. I prefer to skip that book when reading the others; I really didn't care for it.

He became a god. Don't hear anything about him after the spellplague to my knowledge or during 4e.

My assumption there was that he, along with several other gods, were sent to Abeir (where he and the lesser gods of magic worked together to revitalize WHATEVER is the returned Mystra)... but that's my homebrew. I'd assume him to be back, as a servant of at least 3 greater powers (Sune for artistic purposes, Oghma as a bard, and Mystra in a role of serving to promote song magic).... but I'm favored of the idea that many gods now have multiple superiors (as a means of hedging bets).

Alavairthae, may your skill prevail

And the best follow up on him is in 2E Powers and Pantheons.

He's in at least one 5th edition book (now I can't remember which of Ed Greenwood presents Forgottne Realms or The Sword Coast Guide - but he was definitely listed in one of the two).

He is in Ed Greenwood Present's Elminister's Forgotten Realms, but there is no real lore of note there and it's not clear that this source is canon for the Realms. Most of it is just lore, but there are bits that counter the existing Realms because its more of Ed's campaign.
