Legend

“Some Librarians and Sages claim Skjalds are not the oldest of Organizations, but who cares about age of ones Organization. What matters is it’s importance for the World and in that I think the Skjalds are one of, if not the foremost of value.”

Skjald Yell'a'Beard

 

History

The Skjalds origin are unrecorded, but we know there was oral information being passed on long before we started making entries at our Library of Wisdom. One of the Humans that maybe could shed some light on this, is Kanziganthir which I have tried to meet and discuss this with since before The Great Invasion.

The initiative to write down gained knowledge and pass it to other Skjalds met at the dusty roads, taverns or courts. If this began as far back as the Dark Ages or very early in Second Age is uncertain, as Scribe experts are uncertain of writing styles, pronouncing, places and events mentioned. But this tradition allowed for far more separate travel and thus broader gathering of information, and less shared days at the same site or path.

 

Sho Sahanna and Huginn where two of the Skjalds that we can thank for our current status as the grandest Chroniclers amongst Humans. As they befriended Black Oak and the powerfull circle around him. Ensuring that they not only had local houses of their own at each of the Isles as well as the Library of Wisdom.

Luckily only Skjalds, a few Heroes and a small amount of important personalities, knew the location of our sacred library. So it survived The Great Invasion.

Organization

As such we all listen to everything and try to share it all with each other, but I must admit that there some sort of branches evolving in our ranks.

The Skjalds of the Coloured Circle has two arms of the organization: The travelling Skjalds led by the Eight Greater Ones, and the administration maintaining our now hidden library.

Gathering, are those preferring or with a talent for traveling all over and remembering eavesdropping as one walks by people talking.

Confirmation, are those with a fondness of sitting at our library plowing through hundreds of annals or travelling out to locations and people to confirm entries.

Telling, those who find great joy in acting for the crowds performing our tales, or those with great insight in state matters and who are good at staying neutral when uttering old facts.
