College of Death's Song[edit]


Is it really the end when the song of life has reached it's finale, or is it just a prelude for the next composition, produced note by note in the moment of the deceased's last breath, their Death Song as you will, only heard by those who know what to listen for. These bards travel the world/s searching and listening for the final notes left behind in order to create their masterpieces, the true music of the soul. Due to the power of the music passed on by their mentors and created by them.
