    • The Ballad of Bulvyf

      9 years ago

      exniner

      This was a lot of work...let me know what you think!

      The forces met on a field of green
      within the Valley of Fayre
      the forests edge was burned and torn
      black smoke filled the air.

      The hills between the forces two
      were low and rolling on
      the grass was wet, the ground was soft
      the air hot from the sun.

      The force atop the western hill
      did goad their leader forth,
      innumerable men did stretch to the south
      as well as to the north.

      A man in armor boldly strode
      atop his ochre steed
      and with his sword held high o'erhead
      he spake, “This land we need!â€Â

      “Its fields are rich, its waters pure
      its mountains rich with ore,
      these people here are not as good
      as we, we need it more!â€Â

      The force upon the other side
      were farmers, merchants, priests
      They carried pitchforks, mattocks, scythes,
      they trembled in the heat.

      They were in numbers great like sand
      but warriors they were not
      the people of the land of Nod
      their warlike past they forgot.

      Their leader was a learned man
      upon an elder gray
      a sword he carried at his side
      his books were put away.

      His people looked to him in pride
      their leader he was strong
      but a warrior he was not,
      the weapon, it felt wrong.

      He trembled as he so stepped forth
      The man called Teacher John
      and though the foe was fierce
      he knew he must march on.
      “We of Nod,†he so began
      “are men of peace, not war
      But the greed of men, it has no bounds
      their hearts are tempted sore

      “So we will fight to keep our rights
      to hold the tide of greed,
      Heroes will be made this day
      in our time of great need!â€Â

      The men of Nod they cheered and shouted
      though fear it filled their heart
      for in the battle ere to be met
      blood and life would part.

      Then from the northeast came a horn
      the men of Nod did turn
      for down the road did a small troupe ride
      for battle they did burn.

      They bore a banner high and wide
      A field of green, a boar of black,
      the leader he was tall and strong,
      blade and axe across his back.

      “These brigands from the land Sarl
      the battle 'gainst must be won,
      and who better to fight at your side
      than Bulvyf Alricson!

      “My Savages may number few
      but vicious are we all,
      and for the land of Nod we'll fight
      'Till one by one they fall!

      “Our Lady gives us strength to fight
      our blades are sharp and strong
      For Nod is not the stronger here,
      And those of Sarl are wrong!

      “Us Savage few, we know the ways
      of battle tried and true
      And for Nod we'll kill and slay
      'Cause that's what Savages do!â€Â

      The men of Nod they stomped and shouted
      and for the Savages cheered
      But Teacher John found Bulvyf's side
      saying, “We've not battled in years!

      “We have not the numbers, nor the skill
      to fight this Sarlian horde!â€Â
      But Bulvyf just began to laugh
      saying, “That's why I have me sword!â€Â

      Not waiting for the men of Nod
      the twenty Savage's marched
      and like the grass before the wind
      the men of Nod did part.

      The Sarlian horde watched Savage few
      ride out to meet their fate
      and though their leader was sore afraid
      his mouth spoke only hate.

      “Bring twenty men to slay these dogs
      twenty for sure will do,
      for man for man we are as strong
      as these Savage few!â€Â

      The twenty men each drew their blades
      and charged to prove their worth,
      and twenty singing Savage greats
      were ready for the hurt.

      They met in battle on the field
      shouts of challenge made
      And Bulvyf's weapon ran steel on steel
      the first blood wet his blade.

      The warrior had been full run through
      And with a Savage yell
      Bulvyf's Savages fought on
      and twenty Sarlians fell.

      Not one of the Savage few
      had felt a Sarlian blade
      And the Sarlian host did shake
      at the challenge made.

      “I Bulvyf am the Savage King
      from a land so far and cold,
      we fight and make our Savage ways
      and raise our children bold.

      None will walk across this land,
      this place we now call home,
      that dare to trample o'er the weak
      for sake of wanted gold

      So come on then, come and fight
      we'll take you one and all,
      and know this, that if you charge,
      all of you will fall!â€Â

      The leader of the Sarlian host
      in anger did he cry
      The charge was ordered, the host did ride
      these Savages would die!

      And so the Savage warriors stood
      weapons in their hands,
      their twenty looking just as great
      as a pebble on the sand.

      But on they sang their Savage songs
      waiting for the charge
      and as the twenty waited still
      they seemed to grow more large

      Those of Nod watched Savage few
      admiration one and all
      and as the Sarlian host attacked
      no Savage did he fall

      The Sarlian host did ring the few
      and brought their warriors in
      But the Savages, they struck out
      before the Sarlians could begin!

      Soldiers fell before the might
      of the few of Savage Horde
      and twenty Savage warriors fought
      with hammer, axe and sword!

      Though numerous were the Sarlian soldiers
      the Savages were strong
      The Savage song grew louder still
      with each felled within the throng

      But the Savage skill, 'twas not enough
      even for the Horde
      and the first among the Savage kin
      fell to a Sarlian sword.

      Bulyf pulled his clansman back
      and with a mighty heave
      the axe he carried on his back
      did the enemy cleave

      But another fell by arrow shaft,
      another still by spear
      But on the seventeen Savages fought
      nothing did they fear.

      Horses screamed and soldiers wailed
      for 'twas a bloody fight
      But on both sides, both host and few
      fought on with all their might.

      The Sarlians fell unto the earth
      but so did Savage few
      and after many minutes passed
      there were only two

      Bulvyf and his standard bearer
      stood back to back with pride
      and Bulvy called out, “If I die,
      It will have been with pride,

      “For Sarlian soldiers lay around
      cast off by Savage blade,
      and though my men have all gone on,
      a message I have made!

      The Sarlian dead are piled high,
      their wounds are fierce and deep,
      and never will their living soldiers rest,
      for we will haunt their sleep!

      And when ever the horn does sound
      they'll feel a terrible fright,
      for Sarlian men will continue to fall
      as long as I can fight!â€Â

    • Two Gentlemen of Lebowski...

      9 years ago

      exniner

      I have to see this...

      Prologue

      [Enter CHORUS]

      CHORUS
      In wayfarer’s worlds out west was once a man,
      A man I come not to bury, but to praise.
      His name was Geoffrey Lebowski called, yet
      Not called, excepting by his kin.
      That which we call a knave by any other name
      Might bowl just as sweet. Lebowski, then,
      Did call himself ‘the Knave’, a name that I,
      Your humble chorus, would not self-apply
      In homelands mine; but, then, this Knave was one
      From whom sense was a burden to extract,
      And of the arid vale in which he dwelt,
      Also dislike in sensibility;
      Mayhap the very search for sense reveals
      The reason that it striketh me as most
      Int’resting, yea, inspiring me to odes.
      (In couplets first, and then a sonnet brave
      As prologue to the tale of this the Knave.
      Behold him, then, a-tumbling softly down
      To pledge his love immortal to the ground.)
      We stray now from fair Albion and from France
      And see no Queen of bawdy songs and cheers
      And in an angel's city take our chance
      For stupefying tales to take our ears.
      To war on Arab kings acoast we go,
      Needing a man of times, though hero not;
      Hear me call him not hero; what’s in a hero?
      Sometimes there’s a man, your prologue’s thought.
      The Knave, though scarcely man of honour’d grace,
      Nor hero Olympian, nor yet employ’d,
      Was nonetheless for all his time and place,
      The man befits the circle he’s enjoy’d.
      A man of lazy ways, of epic sloth;
      But, losing train of thought, I’ve spake enough!

      [He exits.]



      1.1

      [THE KNAVE's house. Enter THE KNAVE, carrying parcels, and two THUGS. They fight]

      BLANCHE
      Whither the money, Lebowski? Faith, we are servants of Bonnie; promised by the lady good that thou in turn were good for’t.

      WOO
      Bound in honour, we must have our bond; cursed be our tribe if we forgive thee.

      BLANCHE
      Let us soak him in the commode, so as to turn his head.

      WOO
      Aye, and see what vapourises; then he will see what is foul.

      [They insert his head into the commode]

      BLANCHE
      What dreadful noise of waters in thine ears! Thou hast cooled thine head; think now upon drier matters.

      WOO
      Speak now on ducats else again we’ll thee duckest; whither the money, Lebowski?

      THE KNAVE
      Faith, it awaits down there someplace; prithee let me glimpse again.

      WOO
      What, thou rash egg! Thus will we drown thine exclamations.

      [They again insert his head into the commode]

      BLANCHE
      Trifle not with the fury of two desperate men. Long has thy wife sealed a bond with Jaques Treehorn; as blood is to blood, surely thou owest to Jaques Treehorn in recompense.

      WOO
      Rise, and speak wisely, manâ€'but hark;
      I see thy rug, as woven i’the Orient,
      A treasure from abroad. I like it not.
      I’ll stain it thus; ever thus to deadbeats.

      [He stains the rug]

      THE KNAVE
      Sir, prithee nay!

      BLANCHE
      Now thou seest what happens, Lebowski, when the agreements of honourable business stand compromised. If thou wouldst treat money as water, flowing as the gentle rain from heaven, why, then thou knowest water begets water; it will be a watery grave your rug, drowned in the weeping brook. Pray remember, Lebowski.

      THE KNAVE
      Thou err’st; no man calls me Lebowski. Yet thou art man; neither spirit damned nor wandering shadow, thou art solid flesh, man of woman born. Hear rightly, man!â€'for thou hast got the wrong man. I am the Knave, man; Knave in nature as in name.

      BLANCHE
      Thy name is Lebowski. Thy wife is Bonnie.

      THE KNAVE
      Zounds, man. Look at these unworthiest hands; no gaudy gold profanes my little hand. I have no honour to contain the ring. I am a bachelor in a wilderness. Behold this place; are these the towers where one may glimpse Geoffrey, the married man? Is this a court where mistresses of common sense are hid? Not for me to hang my bugle in an invisible baldric, sir; I am loath to take a wife, or she to take me until men be made of some other mettle than earth. Hark, the seat of my commode be arisen!

      WOO
      Search his satchel! His words are a fantastical banquet to work confusion upon his enemies. There sits eight pounds of proof within; surely he hides his treasure on his person.

      BLANCHE
      Villainy! Why this confounded orb, such as men use to play at ninepins; what devilry, these holes in holy trinity?

      THE KNAVE
      Obviously thou art not a golfer.

      BLANCHE
      Then thou art a man to carry ball in his sack? Thou varlet, a plague upon your house; I shall return thy orb to earth.
      [He drops the ball]
      Thy floor cracks in haste, sir; thou art not a man of ample foundation. Woo?

      WOO
      Speak, friend; I am but of droplets.

      BLANCHE
      Was this not a man of moneys and repute? Did not Treehorn speak of chalcedony halls, and three chests of gold, as was hard food for Midas? What think’st thou?

      WOO
      O undistinguish’d man! We are deceived; this man has put not money in his purse.

      THE KNAVE
      Weep not for grief of my own sustaining, sir. At least I am house-broken, none to break the houses of others.

      WOO
      If dog you are, in time you’ll have your day;
      Waste time, but Jaques Treehorn will you pay.

      It's a theoretical illustration of a deinonychus. In the last ten years or so, there's been evidence found that a lot of members of the raptor family had at least some feathers, so it's becomea common opinion that all of them did. Deinonychus is the coolest of them all...Except possibly troödon, which was likely the most intelligent dinosaur to have existed.

      In the Mafia thread, you need state that you're in for this round, or they might skip over you in the player list...Actually, they already did. And it would be helpfull for you to vote on a Mod candidate for this coming round, the candidates are marked in the player list that's post on the latest page.

      Yeah, I think, because of that, my Apartment complex has forbidden any new cats or dogs.

      But caged animals are fine, and I did my research, and I think a tarantula will be easiest, for me to take care of, plus I've always been fascinated by spiders.

    • Green_knight

      10 years ago

      lol, I kinda figured you wouldn't. A snake, or even a homemade Ant colony is a little more responsibility than a puppy, but they're far more cooler, and not so messy ^_^

      Besides, why not get a pet she can learn more from? Heck, my Parents' neighbors kept chickens, although its fun watching the little chicks hatch, and grow up, they were really messy.

    • Green_knight

      Yeah, you're welcome, I can tell you more, if you ever need it. I'm planning to get a Chilean Rose Hair Tarantula, eventually, myself.

      10 years ago

      A beta? what?

      A snake, too? lol, I caught Garter snakes all the time, when I was 12.

      They're easy to take care of, too, just make sure to never give them a hole, or a chance to escape, always keep the lid closed, and let them have a dish, or small pool of water.

      As for what they eat, it depends on the size of the snake, but they almost never eat any dead meat, even fresh, but usually, its live crickets, or even rats.

    • Green_knight

Krypteria tends to take it to extremes and be either very syphonic and not very metal, or very metal and not very symphonic. Epica borders on Death metal in a lot of their work. They all have very different styles, so you basically have to listen to a wide range to decide exactly what you like best.

      Too late, I already decided. Make food, then eat food whilst watching Death Note.

      If you like Visions of atlantis then look up Nightwish. The two are quite similar, though Nightwish is doubtlessly the better. I listened to Nightwish for a good four months before it occured to me that there were probably other bands out there in the Symphonic Metal ganre. And then I facepalmed at not realizing that earlier.

      Ah, the neverending battle against boredom. Here, fight it with some music.

      Just jammin out over here. Trying to decide if I should watch some Death Note, or make some food. Or make some food and then watch Death Note.

      The Old dress is a bit bigger? Then maybe your mom(or a tailor), could resize it? I don't know, it sounds cheaper.
