From Your Subculture Soundtrack, the music encyclopedia

A ballad is a song focused more on being mellow.


The criteria is fairly subjective. But this kind of song form can vary by genre. However some genres focus more on ballads, such as country.

Ballads occasionally tell stories, but mainly they are high-end love songs.


Radio has a high tendency to play tracks in this form. Despite being the opposite of dance music and heavy metal in terms of tempo and tone, people often slow dance to slower songs that are otherwise not dance music.

The Ballad is used during the Spirits of the Elid quest. In order to obtain it, you must to speak to Ghaslor the Elder in the north-east building in in Nardah. The ballad tells the story of a man who tries to enter the dungeon far to the north of Nardah, and the obstacles he has to overcome. In the story he fails, but leaves vital clues to assist the player.

Here follows the text of that beautiful ballad:

The Ballad of Jareesh

Clad all in the robes for She we travelled north expediently.

Go beseech the guardians we were sent, so to the river's source we went.

Through the cave we had to travel. There was mystery to unravel.

We came upon a great stone door but our priestess knew the score.

She used the great ancestral key. We passed through very easily.

Three great men all hewn of rock, three small chambers they did block.

The first all made of rock quite black, our fighting men went to attack.

They went with arrow, blade and spell, but the man they could not fell

Many men did fall that day, while others turned and ran away

I had little hope at all, as I watched my kinsmen fall.

My warhammer I boldy heft and struck a blow which while was deft,

should give scant harm to one so strong or so I thought, nay I was wrong.

The rockman fell down with a crash, which sent up clouds of dust and ash.

Just myself left and alas, two more rockmen left to pass.

Still buoyed on by my first success onwards bravely I did press.

Next man was of rock hued grey and this one next I planned to slay

Crushing blows I rained on him, but things were looking very grim

Not a scratch could I make Anon my limbs began to ache.

The rockman gave a mighty roar so fierce I made fast for the door.

How to beat that second man to this day I have no plan.

My hammer never left a dent. I never reached whence I was sent.
