Pixel Mine Forums _ Ashen Empires Stories & Role-Playing _ Songs of the Bards

Posted by: Zem the Silvite Apr 25 2009, 12:33 AM

These are just a few of the songs I have heard sung throughout my travels across the lands of Dransik. I thought I'd share them with you so that you might enjoy them as much as I. If you have any tales or songs to relate, please share with the rest of us. Without further ado:

~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~

There once was a Priestess of Parian
Who never intended on marryin'.
Though many did court her,
And swore to support her,
She'd rather have been a librarian.

~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~

'Twas Valentine's Day
When I saw Morgan Fey
But, soon she had gave me the slip.
Yet, as I surmised,
I soon realized
She was headed for Kargoth's Crypt!

~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~

My good friend, Wassabi
Has a strange hobby
That truly makes me giggle.
When he takes off his pants
And starts to dance,
'Tis only his belly that wiggles!

~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~

I once knew a ranger named Corgan
Who had severed the head of the Gorgon.
Then, he hid the Old Hag
In a weather'd rune bag.
Now, here stands a statue of Morgan.

~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~

I once knew a sailor named Ferro
Who must have had steel in his marrow.
For, 'midst any gale,
His vessel prevail'd
As he travel'd the straits and the narrows.

~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~

Heh. Very nice Zemechubon smile.gif

I haven't seen you around in a while. Are you making a come back?

Indeed.

One day, while I chatted with Masha,
I heard someone cry "Halt! Inuyasha!"
When I'd saw that they'd caught him
T'was not guards that sought him,
But Trellin, and Grelond and Wassa!

~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~

More, I say. More!

~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~

There once was a gnoll named Ryke,
For whom life and death were alike.
His prey were his dinners,
His raiment, their innards,
His trophies, their heads on a pike!

~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~

T'was a sunless day when Sorella
Had noticed a poor lookin' fella.
Though tried she in vain,
When it started to rain,
She just couldn't craft him an umbrella.

~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~

There once lived a war'ior named Sparrowhawk
Who was highly disdainful of Pharoah-talk.
His scorn for most pleasures
Were shown by his treasures:
His quiver, his bow, and his arrow-chalk.

~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~

~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~

One day as I travelled to Chlera
I met a young lady named Zara,
Refreshing as water,
With passion that's hotter
Than spit from an angry chimera!

~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~

~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~

There once were tales of heroes brave who found in death their life,
Who lived their days by Isos' ways beset by greed and strife.
Though long they strove and errors righted by the light they shone,
The sacrifice of all but these were lain at darkness' throne.

~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~

I had spotted McWind
Coming up 'round the bend
When the creep had the nerve to accost me!
A half million gold,
And my Shield vs Cold
T'was the price our encounter had cost me.

~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~

There once was a demon named Khell
Who had spawned from the darkness of Hell.
From his island of sadness
His howling and madness
Would echo from Arda to Grell.

~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~

There once was a psycho named Nate
Whose saneness was up for debate.
As still as a ghost,
He was idler than most,
And yet is he idlest to date.

~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~

There once was a fella named Zem,
From his brain great prose would stem,
'til a twist of fate, an un-afk Nate,
Finally did him in.

Posted by: Burzy Aug 27 2012, 08:03 AM

lmfao, well done.

Posted by: Pbpredator Aug 27 2012, 08:33 AM

There once was a mage named Mana,
Some thought he may be GM Ohana,
Without a doubt, rejections he did spout,
And continued his crafting in Arda.

There once was a mistress named Hydra,
Who hunted wasps with passionate fire,
In the early hours of dawn, a Queen did spawn,
but sleep was all Hydra desired. The Queen unamused
finished hydra soon and left her body to rot.
To Hydra's luck Pb had stuck,
Around to loot all the drops she'd got.

There once was a killer
Whose surname was Miller.
His weapon of choice was his breath.

For, whilst hunting his prey,
He'd discovered a way
Of talking his victims to death!

When Zem awoke, His armor was broke,
So he visited a blacksmith for repair.
Upon his return, he soon did learn.
The armor was too broken to wear.


hehe

Here's one I just wrote based on a true story! lmfao
I'd like to dedicate this to you GM Quan-Yin

"There was once an Orc who called himself Burz,
Whose outbursts were ragged, much like his Furs.
He ranted this morning about his post being deleted
Poor GM Quan-Yin May thought him conceited
When pointing out that his post was not poofed, no instead,
It remained at the bottom of an unlocked thread.

Burz laughed at himself and then shook his head,
Logged off the forms, took his pills, went to bed."

All festivites ceased
As Ken the Beast
Awoke from his den with a shout!

He cursed and he swore
With a deafening roar
'Til we found him a Parian Stout.

Tempester the sage
Earned an adequate wage
By selling the things that he knew.

So, I begged him in earnest,
"What all hast thou learnest?"
He kindly replied to me, "Moo!"

~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~

~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~

Listen, devils! Hark!
Great servants of the dark,
Remember well,
Ye spawn of hell,
And fear the name of Sark!

~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~

As they are told,
The stories of old
Say only this much of Prince Marth:

He was feuled by his ire,
His pride and desire,
And wrent from his home and his hearth.

~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~

The flea-bitten bastard
Known as Lord Hazard
Had no use for castles or walls.

Though Hell were invaded
He'd not be dissuaded
From constantly licking his balls.

~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~

There once lived a general named Lavitz
Who was prone to peculiar habits
Like going to war
O'er a Demon's Eye score
While commanding an army of rabbits

~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~

~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~

I was utterly lost
When a fellow named Frost
Had shown me a map he had drawn.

And I soon found myself
Nowhere near New Korelth
But instead at the gate where I spawn.

~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~

There once lived a fair lady Leah
Who had the most noble idea.
She would offer her help
To both worthy and whelp
As the means to a true panacea.

There once was a man named Petro'
Who didn't know if he was het'ro
Though he struggled inside
He just couldn't decide
So, instead he just called himself metro'.

~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~

Posted by: Zem the Silvite Sep 2 2012, 05:42 PM

Any requests?

(Please provide a phonetic pronunciation if applicable...)

Posted by: Leah Sep 2 2012, 08:42 PM

Awesome one about me!!
I wrote my own too!!

Once was a bunny named Leah,
Who was as helpful as could be,
She was always in a dash,
To hide her carrot stash,
From anyone who would steal it you see!!

She was fond of throwing shoes,
At anyone who brought her bad news.
Now this ends my time,
Cause bunnies just dont rhyme,
Or they wind up in Nappi's stews!!

*hugs* Leah wub.gif

There once lived Norco, the King,
Who had mastered the sword and the sling,
Yet was highly attuned
To the ways of the rune.
For, you see, it was sort of his thing.

Long live the name
Of our dear Jesse James
Whose leaving has left us forlorn.

Though truly he's missed
We shall duly persist
And e'er in our hearts shall we mourn.

Fear ye the goddess Quan Yin
Who are scoundrels and scammers of men.
Upon crooks of all manner
She brings down the hammer,
Ensuring that justice shall win.

While serenely enjoying our victuals,
We were sudd'nly surrounded by triddles!
"Take heed," said Timaeus,
"Thy guile may allay us.
Forthwith, thou shalt answer three riddles."

~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~

Beware ye the one-eyed deity
Who be fairly unfond of impiety.
Lest thy impudence vanish,
Ye chance being banished
To the uttermost depths of the Pleiades.

There once lived a War'ior Princess
For whom many their love did confess.
She oft was bespoken
With each vow unbroken,
And always in full battle-dress.
