A Song Teller was a job and lifestyle often favored by Gelfling throughout the clans.[1]

They usually use a firca as main instrument[2][3], but other instruments such as lutes[4] and lyres[5] were also preferable choices.[6]

Often hired as bards or entertainment[7], they sang a range of fictional stories, legends, odes, common myths, stanzas, poems and non-fiction stories.[8][9][10][11]

Song Telling was an important part of society[12], and went as far as becoming an assigned job throughout the clans.[13]
