The leaders of nelfyn society. Each nelfyn city was overseen by a godsinger, who was responsible for the cultural and spiritual well-being of his people. A godsinger would "rule" a city until death or abdication, unless the other godsingers declared they were no longer fit to lead. New godsingers were chosen by the people in their domain based on a combination of their wisdom, accomplishments, and the strength of their Voice.
Godsingers were not political leaders. They did not have power or authority over the people in their cities. Rather, they advised them on cultural and spiritual matters, and were in charge of maintaining the Song of Creation. The godsingers were also the first point of contact between cities when problems arose.
