The Song Book is an item in Dragon Age: Origins.
The book is inside a chest within the Dalish Camp, next to Lanaya. You cannot persuade the elf to give you the book before completing Nature of the Beast. She will warn you about not opening the chest or taking its contents upon trying to open the chest the first time.
- You can betray the trust of the clan by opening their sacred chest, despite Lanaya's warning. This will cause the Brecilian Forest's Dalish to react with distrust.
- If you use stealth [rogue] after successfully persuading Lanaya Zathrian needs her, this will not cause them to distrust you if you do not get caught [get normal dialogue after and not betrayal conversation]. Wait until you hear her start speaking to Zathrian before attempting to open the chest for best results. This will not trigger until you attempt to open it one time first.
- You can wait after the conflict with the werewolves and the elves is resolved to get the book.
- It is a trade item for the Mad Hermit.
