Something that I have been mulling over somewhat: just what are Chanters. Are they performers, who use their performances to perform (heh) magic? Are they Historians, like Kana, who just recite historical phrases to perform magic? Are all Chanters good storytellers? Would an Animancer Chanter be a thing or are they just more interested in folktales? It says they come from cultures with a strong oral (heh) tradition, does this mean they are all good speakers? I mean, just how 'Bard' are Chanters?
Looking on the wiki (that source of up to date and accurate information...) I see that Lumdala (a certain performer) is a Chanter, supporting the concept that Chanters are performers, but then I see that Ranga Nui (the midwife) is a Chanter also, and I can't see her spending her time reciting Shakespeare (or whatever Pillars equivalent is). The ingame description is that they form groups of "performers and researchers", are they groups that do both or some that do one or another, and do they only research folktales, cultures and history or do they also research the sciences?
