This concept combines a few main ideas:
added dps of the Bastard sword + the THF feats
stacking double strike % from the Inspire Recklessness + the Swashbuckler
the lessened Physical damage vulnerability (aka the shield feats) to take even less damage while keeping up this builds max dps and hate.

I got a rough hp total at about 538 = 20(hd) + 78 + 12 + 60 + 10(A) + 60(base con) + 20 (+2 tome) + 60 (+6 con item) + 20 (+2 exp con) + 45 (GS hp item) + 30(GFL) +10(SFL) + 20 (rage or stance) + 23(toughness) + 20 (Fighter Toughness II) + 30 (Racial Toughness III) 20 (toughness item)

Feel free to check my math, and/or add in things like Guild buffs and yugo pots…

Okay well that is my bard.
