This is one of the many faction related side quests. House of Ballads is in Odarath in the top left section of the clearing above the "ra" in Odarath.

This is pretty straightforward. You get about 5-7 different missions and then it concludes in a boss fight. I have to say one of the more unique plotlines. If you ever played a table top fantasy RPG, you can appreciate it more.

This questline will eventually give you a Twist of Fatecard called "Iconoclast." It gives you a permanent +10% damage with Faeblades, +6% mana, and +3% chance to steal 5 health. It doesn't matter which side you choose in the final boss fight, the twist of fate card doesn't change for either option.

All of these faction quests are worth doing before you start the main quests because of the twist of fate cards that give you a good bonus.

The armor you get from this line of quests is a good beginner armor

One of the few questlines you can complete without needing to move to the next tier of zones to the East. I tried to maximize on levelling priotr to moving East as the mobs set at your level once you reach a new zone/area.

During the Quest "Ballad of Bloody Bones," I killed the Bloody Bones and had to resurrect Sir Farrara, but I only got the option to "Talk to Sir Farrara." I reloaded the game several times, but it kept glitching and not allowing me to resurrect him. In the end I left the cave, reentered it and the text had changed from "Talk to Sir Farrara" to "Resurrect Sir Farrara."

It anyone else encounters this glitch, just exit and reenter the cave - it might work for you as well.
