The Spellsong Remnant are currently Dissolved and the faction is closed until three players attempt to restart it.
Previously holding the title of ‘The Viridian’, the Spellsong Remnant were once part of the College of Whispers. Recent years have placed them as guardians, protectors, and occasionally ones who clean up after chaotic factions and unruly kingdoms within Erenel.
In recorded history, they first came into the public eye in 514 EoBO, spotlighted during the time of Elias Taggart, the famed Mad Magician. During the tenure of his onslaught, the once-Viridian directly contested the Mad Magician’s province in a bid to stop him from abusing ancient secrets and exacting forbidden arcanum upon the peasantry. In the Mad Magician’s home of the Lurien Citadel, the Viridian quickly cut a swath through his men, before confronting him on his throne directly. The battle between the Viridian, Elias, and his advisor Namyla Ashani never made it into the annals of history, but the end result saw the Mad Magician sacrificing himself to the Bond, calling down a fading star. The Mad Magician believed the star held a chained and forgotten deity that would reward him for its freedom. Which to the current date, the consequences of the ritual or this supposed ‘chained deity’ remain unknown. The now broken Viridian retreated from the province as the star fell from the heavens. The fallen star crashed into the ground, destroying the entirety of the Mad Magician’s structure and created a hole so deep and vast, many believe it may lead to the center of the world. When the remaining members returned to the College of Whispers, they officially seceded, allowing the College of Whispers to fade from memory. Now, a century later, the Spellsongs act as an independent faction. The treaties established during the rite were spread amongst several organizations in Erenel, for the remnant to return to their halls of old and perform jobs--this time, for reward and appropriate compensation.
Once the newly christened Spellsong reformed their numbers, a grand tournament of wit and mastery was held within their circle as to who would guide them in a new direction. From this number came the first Meister, a female Valthera named Kiarde. From her leadership, the Spellsong took for themselves a small fortress near the Tia’Kal Empire, close to Roh’Kor and the Forgotten Coast. The first tenets placed before the Spellsong were etched into stone by claw. Following old tradition, a drop of blood from every member would grace the stone as a silent pact between their members.
With these set in place, the green flag was exchanged for a long and flowing silver one with the profile of a lion on the side, outlined in blue color in Kiarde’s image. The remnant split into two different roles from then onward, directed by the first Meister herself, the Accordists, and the Scriveners. In the present day, the Meisters role is that of a figurehead, settling disputes which don’t directly come from the original tenants. Should the ancient treaties be invoked, a select group is sent to the home of the invocator to listen to the job and judge for themselves. Despite this transition into more of a political role, the Meister is looked upon with respect. Every thirty years would be Meisters perform the grand tournament of wit and mastery, with the champion becoming the Spellsongs new Meister.
- Do not directly interfere with the jobs that other Spellsong are involved in.
- Should you wrong someone, financial compensation is preferable. Indentured servitude to the wronged, if unable.
- Act on the ancient treaties, but be a judge of worth. Ask for the exact worth of the job to you, nothing more.
- When in a contest among brothers and sisters, assign one to mediate any bets and agree on the challenge.
