Dean of the First Voice Glade
The Dean of the First Voice Glade is an Imperial title created by the Imperial Senate in Autumn 382YE.
The position of Dean is a sinecure, requiring minimal responsibility but offering a regular income of valuable herbs.
The Dean of the First Voice Glade is expected to uphold the musical and cultural traditions of the Navarr. These responsibilities include encouraging emerging and potential talent, ensuring Navarr musical traditions and history is honoured. They have little in the way of administrative responsibilities to the school, but will frequently lecture or run workshops and so should be familiar with Navarr musical traditions and be passionate about furthering Navarr culture. For this they are afforded a portion of the bounty from the accompanying herb garden. In addition, if the Glade were to be threatened in any way, it would be the responsibility of the Dean to deal with those threats.

First Voice Glade
First Voice Glade School stands in a glade in Oakways chosen to mark the memory of the exemplar Gerallt Brackensong, a Navarr bard who fell at Return. It quickly became a gathering place for members for several stridings. Splitroot Striding, The Twisted Tree Tradehouse, and Splinterspear funded and built a small school at the location to ensure that Gerallt continued to provide a lasting legacy for future generations. The music school trains its students in classical Navarr musical traditions, as well as other performing arts skills such as dancing, juggling, fire performance etc etc. The school is strictly focused on Navarr traditions. Courses range in duration and intensity from the prestigious three year musical degree, to weekend-long workshops for passing Stridings.
