I finished delivering all 18 pieces of mail tonight and was so excited to talk to Postmaster Aric Songfairer after getting the yellow message to see him. But I have been standing here for an hour waiting for him to get off stage and he won't move. He just keeps playing his concert. I tried being rude and interrupting him but I get the message telling me to wait until he is done with his performance. How long is his performance and how long do I need to wait? Is he bugged and doesn't move now making it impossible to finish the quest?

He eventually stopped singing for me so the quest still works. It was a long time maybe an hour or more but when you are waiting to get your quest completed it seemed like forever.
so now the big question

I know that you can mail stuff to an owner from a house-- but how do you mail stuff to individuals ingame? i so far haven't found anything written up on this one.

found it: How to send parcels

Simply go to a parcel merchant, and click on them just as you would a vendor. Some parcel merchants it should be noted, double as merchants, and if this is the case, you'll want to click the "Parcels" tab in their inventory window to get started.

In the Parcel window:

Click on the item in your inventory that you wish to send. It will become highlighted in your inventory window, and the item's icon will appear in the little box in the lower section of your parcel window.
Please note, No-Trade and Temporary items cannot be mailed, as well as Lore items that the intended recipient already owns.
Also, you can send either an item or coin, however, you cannot send both in the same parcel.
Only one (1) item can be sent for each transaction, so if you wish to send several items, you'll have to send each individually.
Type in the name of the player you wish to mail your item to in the "To:" field.
Optional: type a note in the "Note" field if you like.
Click the button marked, "Send" to send your parcel.

Do illusions work for Dark Elves and other "evil" races to get this quest? My 91 Dark Elf Necro isn't able to get it apparently...

The saddest thing about all the housing quests is that my dark elves, and my iksar get left out. Since they are kos in qeynos, they don't get the pretty statues, the 20-slot bags, the nice illusion mask or the postal bard. nor do they get the shield. NOT FAIR-- if you are going to make these quests available, then please put them somewhere neutral so that everyone can enjoy them -- not just the "good" races. After all, we pay to play all our toons, not just the good ones.

Well, you picked an evil race, what did you expect...a brass band, a parade and flowers?
You just got to get a bit more creative to do the tasks.
got it right this time

Like the other Sunrise quests, this is an "old school" style quest...so there's nothing that shows up in your task window.

While he's playing you will see him make emote the following message occasionally
Postmaster Aric Songfairer radiates with pride as he sings of the 'League of Antonican Bards'.

Talking to him about it yields the following
You say, 'Who are the League of Antonican Bards?'
Postmaster Aric Songfairer says 'The League of Antonican Bards, the heart of communication within our world! Without The League I am sure Norrathians would find themselves wandering through an age without knowledge of any current events. Why we can just look to the good people of Sanctus Seru for an example of mass ignorance...' He sighs, 'Better than bore you with anecdotes, how about I put you to the test? Are you up for a simple [challenge]?'
You say, 'I am up for the challenge.'
Postmaster Aric Songfairer says 'Excellent, a simple but effective test of your dedication to the free exchange of information. Scattered among Antonica and Faydwer are a number of couriers and their respective informants. Travel through these lands and deliver, let's say, 18 unique pieces of mail. If you can complete this challenge, return to me and I shall bestow upon you a reward fitting of one who would undertake such an arduous task.'

If he's not on stage and you've just started the task, hailing him yields (he tells you how many deliveries you've made)
You say, 'Hail, Postmaster Aric Songfairer'
Postmaster Aric Songfairer says 'Hail Zeurallius! Still working on the challenge? It looks like you have delivered 0 out of 18 pieces of mail so far...'

There are 18 delivers to be made, there are 2 zones that give you 2 deliveries each to send (so 16 zones to get the deliveries from).

The deliveries are as follows
West Karana to Qeynos - http://everquest.allakhazam.com/db/quest.html?quest=452
Highpass to Qeynos - http://everquest.allakhazam.com/db/quest.html?quest=444
Surefall Glade to Qeynos - http://everquest.allakhazam.com/db/quest.html?quest=451
Erudin to Qeynos - http://everquest.allakhazam.com/db/quest.html?quest=439
Halas to Qeynos - http://everquest.allakhazam.com/db/quest.html?quest=443

Qeynos to Highpass - http://everquest.allakhazam.com/db/quest.html?quest=449
Freeport to Highpass - http://everquest.allakhazam.com/db/quest.html?quest=442

Nektulos to Freeport - http://everquest.allakhazam.com/db/quest.html?quest=448
Rivervale to Freeport - http://everquest.allakhazam.com/db/quest.html?quest=450
Highpass to Freeport - http://everquest.allakhazam.com/db/quest.html?quest=444
Feerrott to Freeport - http://everquest.allakhazam.com/db/quest.html?quest=440
Kelethin to Freeport - http://everquest.allakhazam.com/db/quest.html?quest=446
Innothule to Freeport - http://everquest.allakhazam.com/db/quest.html?quest=445

Freeport to Kelethin - http://everquest.allakhazam.com/db/quest.html?quest=442
Kaladim to Kelethin - http://everquest.allakhazam.com/db/quest.html?quest=447
Felwithe to Kelethin - http://everquest.allakhazam.com/db/quest.html?quest=441
Butcherblock to Kelethin - http://everquest.allakhazam.com/db/quest.html?quest=438
Ak'Anon to Kelethin - http://everquest.allakhazam.com/db/quest.html?quest=437

After completing the first delivery you get the message (the message will increment each time you complete a different delivery) in yellow
Mail Delivery Challenge: You are one step closer to earning the respect of the League of Antonican Bards! You have delivered 1 out of 18 pieces of mail!

If you go and complete the same one again, you will get the following message instead, in red
Mail Delivery Challenge: You have already delivered this bit of mail.

One you finish all 18 delivers, you'll get the following message
Mail Delivery Challenge: You have successfully delivered 18 pieces of mail! Return to Sunrise Hills and speak with Postmaster Aric Songfairer.

When you return to Postmaster Aric Songfairer, he will say the following:
You say, 'Hail, Postmaster Aric Songfairer
Postmaster Aric Songfairer looks at you curiously before reviewing the small scroll in his hand, 'Well, I did not think it possible, but you have completed the challenge set out before you! As such, you have earned the respect if not the admiration of the League of Antonican Bards and I shall now bestow upon you the title of Courier. You may wish to talk to some of my associates now.' He nods toward Celtreus before continuing, 'You have my congratulations and unquestionably earned respect. Carry on, Courier!

The quest reward from this quest
This gives you access to a new prefix title "Courier".

This basically flags you to be able to talk with Lysric and Celteus as well, and get their rewards, assuming you've done the required tasks of course.

Because some people whined to me about not knowing what to do after this, and I don't feel like dealing with anymore of that...after you finish this...visit http://eqbeastiary.allakhazam.com/search.shtml?id=38577 (Lysric Loresinger page) and http://eqbeastiary.allakhazam.com/search.shtml?id=38578 (Celtreus Arwell page) for the next set of "quests".

I separated them because this quest's reward is basically the title and a flag. Everything else is more stuff that's unlocked via that flag. Combine them in the quest entry if you want, I don't really care.

I would be happy to assist you with the delivery of reception of any parcels.'
