Sons of Ironhold
Order of the Silver Song
This highly secretive organization of elite bards has developed an entirely new method of powering their magical effects. Their method is unknown to the Mage Towers and to all other bards.
They have no overt political agenda, but they operate in closed and secretive cells because they are pursued at all times by the Courtesans Guild.
Some speculate that the secret to their magical prowess has its origins in occult mysteries stolen from the Courtesans Guild.
