Bards are a loose association of historians, story tellers, singers, and general entertainers that travel the Islands seeking to bring joy in an otherwise bleak life. They have a wide range of knowledge and skills but are most known for their utter lack of respect for the Council of Wind and the rules. This conflict stems from many sources, but the primary is that the Bards claim that the Aeromancers are altering historical records to make themselves look more heroic than the truth and to maintain their power over the people as an oligarchy.
The Bards are led by the mysterious Augustian Morrowhope whose disdain for the Council of Wind is legendary.
Bards spend a good portion of their time on Pulon Island and Epicurea. It is thought that their hidden base is on the latter.
