  • Another way to enjoy your time in Erinn is by learning the Composing skill and writing your own songs with it.
    If you ever find yourself playing someone else's Music Score, please make sure to give them their due.
    It's really difficult to write music...

    Well, composing certainly is quite a bit difficult,

  • Did you hear about the Composing skill from Bebhinn at the Bank? To be honest, Bebhinn is kind of tone deaf! She just wants to compose so badly, but she doesn't have the musical talent.*Sometimes, I get the feeling that she pushes people to learn that skill, just so one of them will write her a song! But that's besides the point... Have you talked to Priestess Endelyon at the Church? She composes beautiful music.
    If you ever learn how to compose, would you please write a song not just for Bebhinn, but for me, too?

  • Composing skill, you said? Bebhinn told you about it, didn't she? It's common knowledge that Bebhinn likes to talk to travelers about her knowledge regarding the Composing skill.
    I can't figure out why she does that, though... Who knows? I don't think she herself knows why.
    Listen carefully, CharacterName. People often tend to blend their ideas with what other people do. In other words, it is very dangerous to believe everything someone says about others.
    I am not trying to say that those who do believe are wrong. I'm just saying that if you have a selective ear for what to listen to and what not to, then you will be able to make better and wiser decisions later on.

  • You must be interested in composition. Then open the Shop window. There it is - Introduction to Composing Tunes! Everything you need to know about composing is written in it. Read it carefully and you'll learn the Composing skill in no time.
    And, after acquiring the Composing Skill, you'll need Music Scores. You can write your own music on blank Music Scores!
    Buy it! Come on, buy it! That's right, press 'Shop'!

  • Bebhinn must have told you about that skill. She really wants to learn it, but it's a little too difficult for her.
    She's not really the musical type, but don't tell her I said that! She'd be very upset.
    Anyway, have you talked to Priestess Endelyon at the Church? Go talk to her about it.

  • Do you wish to compose a tune? Hmm... the Composing skill is usually more complicated than you think and requires some effort.
    You can't compose with only the melody that pops into your head. The critical part is to put all your musical ideas onto a sheet of paper.
    I remember seeing a book explaining how to do that somewhere.
    Oh right, It's Malcom's General Shop. Go to the General Shop and find the book titled "Introduction to Composing Tunes'written by Baird.
    The book is an excellent guide on what you need to know. It would help immensely if you wish to exhibit your creativity and compose music.

  • You're interested in the Composing skill? Hmm... today's a strange day. Most of the questions people are asking are about petty skills that have nothing to do with combat. Quite disappointing, indeed...
    You look like a prototypical warrior to me. For you to ask me about skills like that... I feel like you're straying away from the path to becoming a great warrior...
    But anyway, about the Composing skill... Endelyon knows a lot about it. Make sure you talk with her first.
    Once you get her advice, make sure to follow her instructions. Don't even think about getting something out of me without listening to her first.

    I've always wanted to learn, and thought the Composing skill would come in handy.
    The one thing I would really like to do is express my feelings for her with music.
    Yes, I'm talking about Dilys...

    To tell you the truth, I'm very interested in composing myself. Not that I compose any music myself... *Giggle*
    I do carry some score paper used for composing music, so please let me know if you need any.
    It would be an honor to have your music, CharacterName, scored on the very paper that I sold to you. *Giggle*.

    Critics interpreted my insistence on using 3 chords as my compositional style that was full of restraint and purity.
    I can tell you this now, because so much time as passed since then but honestly... the reason I'd always insisted on writing songs with just those 3 chords was... because those were the only 3 chords I knew how to play. Haha.
