And so Comes Change

Echoes From the Caverns

Hello Folks! This is Sir Stile Teckel with some official announcements!

I want to keep it short so let’s just do that,

As you are most likely aware by now, Lord Baldrith has left the Echoes From the Caverns, to take up other pursuits and needs.

That left the question out there, who will be taking over his spot on the show? Will anyone?

You may have heard through the rumor mill as I did not make a lot of attempts to keep it quit OR if you listened to our last show in whole, you would have heard it on there as well.

That would be me! Now that I work at home for a living I not only do not have time for many hobbies, I also don’t get a chance to talk very often. I’ve come to find I lose my voice rather quickly. So when the opportunity presented to pick up a hobby that doesn’t take a lot of time and I get to talk? No brainer!

Now after talking to the boss a little bit *points over at Asclepius*, he has agreed to try out a couple of ideas I have for the show, in the near future.

I’d rather leave them a surprise, for now, accept to say, expect not to lose anything we have or that you like about it, but do expect some new things to make it a bit more enjoyable for you (we hope)!

Finally, and I may get in trouble for this or even be told that I need to change it, as I hadn’t run it by the previously mentioned boss yet, that I wiped up some new artwork Here it is again so you can blow it up to full size if you’d like!

Xak’s song of Revenge – by Xarras

When I have you at my mercy
will I halt and my avenging hand stay
will I not think that justice an investment that day
mercy or murder just a moment away

you’ve trampled the innocent
you cheat and you lie
why should we spare
you lead others to die

Our weapons are sharpened
our potions are strong
our spells are full power
Our grievances long

Or stop to balance the thought that
you might repent your bad ways,
against the reward on your head
and the thought that it just might
make me feel just a bit better that day.

I would gladly give up the honour and the fame
to see you swiftly on your way
to the limbo that is the pay
for your wicked, wicked, wicked ways

You better not blink
You better be sharp
There’ll be no time to think
Cos in the beat of your heart
I will take it away
Take your skull away
I will take your jaw away
Take your bones away

Or stop to balance the thought
that you might repent your bad ways,
against the reward on your head
and the thought that it just help
make me feel a lot better that day.

With my friends and my guild mates
we’ll dance in a line
rejoicing your demise
time after time after time after time . .

Limericks – by Cock of the North

There was a man from Middle Downs,

He liked to wear short ladies gowns,

The bandits did frown,

As the sun struck his mound,

At the size of the jewels in his crown.

There was a man named Oakenvalley,

He strived and strived to be a Pally,

From elf jokes he triggered,

So one day he figured,

I’ll specialize in crafting instead!

There was a young warrior called Klank,

Who often Shock Monkeys did spank,

When noone was looking,

He levelled his cooking,

By basting a tender ham shank.
