Colds suck. At least this one waited till the war was over. I found this particular poem while digging around on my hard drive to consolidate all my DF writign in one spot, and realized I'd never published it. Without further ado, I present:
Lament of the Twins

Born to fight and born to die
Promised path and twisted spy
never having seen the sky
fated battle, final cry.

Trapped within the shifting weave
Where the Stranger did deceive,
us one and all. And so we grieve.

Unknowing chance. Twisting fate
The common tale forgets the hate,
The weary eyes or Death's dark Gate.
Form of dragon. Bone and plate.

Twins so fearsome, dark and bright
wing-beats echo in the night
Orbits, mirrors, form so slight
Hero who returned the light.

Another of my older DF poems that never got published.
Steel and time

It’s not that we scorn magic, (though we do)
We’ve differences with some who use it, true
but we would never dare deny what hold the world to life
magic pure and clear and true, a double sided knife.
It’s simply that we know another way did once exist
that bent steel and metal to fulfil all we could wish
so now we listen in the night to hammers in our blood,
and know we cannot be content with mining in the mud.
And so we found a relic of that long and ancient time,
and there we built a city that with light of work does shine.

Writeen for a contest called fractured fairy tales, and inspired by DF. I present:

Granny Wolftail

Walking down the darkened trail
Trees twisting black against the full moon pale
wolves at every turning.
Blade in hand the walker grips
‘seems familiar,’ he thinks, passing cowslips
and a light in a window is burning.

A wolf in a nightdress and cap lies in bed
and by the mantle hangs a cloak of bright red
sets the wanderer’s mind a churning.
He raises his blade, stands ready to fight
when suddenly from the next room comes light
And a voice. “Granny!” calls the girl returning.

“Take care,” calls the wolf, in an old woman’s voice
“There’s a man with an axe!” He makes a choice.
The classic tale a’ spurning.
He lowers the axe, leans on it, sighs
recognizes the love in those dark wolfen eyes
thinks of the moon and his learning.

Doffs his cap, bows his head, to the wolf in the bed
offers remorse and to leave with no bloodshed
her forgiveness he swiftly is earning.
Sometimes the tale’s not quite what you think.
For granny’s a werewolf in a nightgown of pink.
and the axe man’s not undiscerning.

I've never given the matter much thought. However, since you've prompted me to think about it, I'd have to say either Captain Signy Mallory, and Let there be Fire, or Dark Star and At the Place of the Decisive Battle.

You are rebirth by fire, so Haelon is an Human-Phoenix?
AQ DF MQ AQW  Post #: 31

Something like that. Haelon is at most 50% human, and has very close ties to the Realm of Fire. Her human heritage protected her when Wargoth came after fire creatures, but her hair is literally made of flames, and she can return to life like a phoenix. But, a phoenix is reborn as a young bird, over and over again, where she just sparks back into life exactly as she was when she was killed. Unlike a phoenix, she will die of old age eventually. Parts of her body are constructs of fire made solid, like the wings of flame, and she heals injuries by bursting into flame.

Child of Fire
Mortal blood and Fire’s claim, caught within a healing flame
felled cruelly, thought fair game. No conscience lack.
A heritage of purest fame, locks of fire down my back,
Skin like ashes, wrapped in silk, swift ever to attack.
Wings burn the skies, blade held in hand,
from fire I rise, a bonfire soul despising surmise
leaping in a fearful whole, betrayal I understand.

Fire never dies. Its glow lights the skies.
This is known by the wise as it’s smoke-banner flies
and it’s child sheds disguise. For caught in the flames now
that slayer swift dies. Such a prize for the lies paid in dark reprise.
When one of fire you despise, and swift devise and an end to cries
a dark demise simple to actualize, be sure all flesh you vaporize
lest vengeance flies soon as sunrise through all the allies
you’ve used, surmise that such betrayal’s most unwise
and so at length, agonize. For fire-born from fire rise.

And all fool enough to slay us dies.

Here's an art experiment: Caeternam in pencil and ink. I printed a screenshot and did my best to copy it but some details just dint come out, and one of the pairs of arms almost vanished. Still, I think it's pretty good. Fortunately, I've got practice drawing chains and braids so those were easy enough.

You're better at simpler things than I am, and much faster. I keep re-doing things until it looks finished and doesn't bother me. Yours look finished, where if I tried to draw like you, I'd never be happy. We've different styles.

Ok. I was experimenting with a new style, and now present a somewhat silly and disjointed work:

Artix von Kreiger, dark’s bane, paladin
Balteal, First Soulweaver, uncle of Sin

Celestia, Presitess, comrade from the start
Dragonslayer Demento’s death touched every heart

Ellial fortuneteller, a dweller in Ravenloss deep,
Fae, first in the beta, lady of Nature’s Keep

Gary, twice outcast, ghastly incompetent elf
Hawke, captain in Moonridge keeps watch by herself

Icemaster yeti, once foe turned to friend
Jdx, known as Key, works for unseen end

Katia, we don’t know, but she’s a friends sister
Lanrete’s a jerk, and her brother who misses her

Mae Pi, pirate innkeeper on Sho’Nuff Isle
Nythera actually killed Warlic for a while

Oyva, Soulsmith, Roirr’s child, Aunt of Sin
Pi Mae is the keeper of Wind Shadow Inn

Queen Pallor turned Moglins into flying Mogkeys
Rhubarb’s a captain, and Valntidus is pleased

Safira rises in Doomwood’s Dark Night
Tomix the Soulweaver put Evil to flight

Uaanta Fayt’s name speaks of her temper
Vilmor was betrayed and none knew her gender

Warlic’s half Infernal and called the Blue Mage
Xan really hates him and has for an Age

Yu Nohu’s name is a nightmare to say
Zorbak’s been here since the very first day.

I did use all those letters. Balteal, Demento, Fae, Hawke, Jdx... I was planning on Lim, but Lanrete actually made more sense. Every letter of the alphabet is accounted for. Check the second line of each couplet for B and the others.

It's not perfect, but it's not unsuited either. It would be a theme of hers, not her main theme.

This is in a style called braid-rhyming, in intricate and complicated one to work in. I have used braided verse before, but never attempted one on this scale. Please tell me what you hink of it:

Dragonlord's Reply

O Veritas, remember me! I hear your cries and almost see!
I cannot hate you, never shall, even from this dark locale
Dragon dear, my only son, I blame you not for what you’ve done
Bound to your flesh, to shadow slaved, its first and ancient claim.
As your name tells, you know this truth, as well I know the same.
Now alone you soar the skies of Lore: Emerald, Amethyst, and Turquoise
while the Shadowscythe’s malice to sorrow has turned all memory of joys.

Ours was a time of joy and love, of laughter and of life
of sword and knife and silken glove, of many forms of strife:
of battle, friendship, comrades dear, and sometimes, sacrifice
yet as we fought, we had one fear, your nature’s precipice.
We knew the dark and secret ways, and ways of light and love
Fought from the fearsome Erinyes below to moon and stars above
We knew them all, and also true, your nature, dearheart,
though you rue what now you are, and death keeps us apart.

Although for now I must stay dead, I still can hear your cries
Can you hear me? Can you see? This was always our destiny.
Our paths now far apart have led, for everything yet dies.
Oh I forgive you, always shall. I see you from this dark locale
I wait beyond the doors of death, this dark and lonesome keep
with other shades, whose rage at you replaces vanished breath.
O my dear one, my dragon son, eternal shall I wait, and weep
their hate is not my shibboleth, for well I know the work of fate.

I see your tormented mind writhe, held by avarice and hate
so long held by the shadowscythe, whose ire none can sate
Yet even in their madness dread, O dragon quick and lithe
with all that they’ve done to your head, they have not won the day.
You kill and kill in rage and pain, to drown out yet my well loved name
but light and earth and fire exist, the polluted world that they
seek nothing less than the unmaking of. And that you still resist.

Veritas, my son, my love, Telembor’s earth, and sky above!
Neso’s waves, Fiamme’s flames, are proof to me that you still fight
and stand against the endless night! Your battle waged within the mind
your body slays in rage so blind. By Haeos’s storms. Kyanos’ frost
Warlic and I know you’re not lost. Voidstar’s night gives way to dawn
Celeritas still lives on, though against you not one could stand
if now you answered the Stranger’s hand. Vandark and Zeuster
bring us news. I love that rooster! Arester, patron of war
has more power now than ever before
to bring against the shadowscythe.
Their use of you his bloody tithe.
Veritas, O hear me speak! I cry to you, though words are weak
although your life may never end, none living would your work defend
destroying truth, hear me, this is true! Even still you are my friend.

Yes, this accompanies my previous work "Destroying Truth"

The Crystal Blue Trident, a scythe class weapon/artifact of my own creation. Made in paint.net. It has two specials, one basic, one locked to Kathool Adepts

Special attack 1- the user drives the spiraling drill at the end of the shaft into the ground, which splits, bringing geysers gushing up to strike the enemy six times, dealing 130 % your basic attack damage of Melee/Magic/Ranged damage depending on your Stats.

Special attack 2, only activating if the player is a Kathool Adept. Instead of triggering the above, it sends out three tidal waves, each dealing 270% damage and stunning the enemy for one turn, with a four turn daze effect, leaving the enemy hallucinating, unable to find the player.

^ Popup text *the monster attacks a mirage and over extends.* This results in the next hit against it dealing 20% more damage.

@Gammacavy, Great New Artifact , But Since KAA is well, from Kathool i Think there should have an Skill that make an break at the enemy's Mind, Driving it Insane, Like, Making the enemy hit itself for 4 rounds or something, hehehehe

^ I thought about that, but decided it would be a bit much. Now, a Blind/Confuse effect however...
*wanders off to edit the stats.*
