Hi Everyone: Lord Baldrith here with the first reading of a poem written by community member Houston Dragon. Very awesome poem!
-Edit from Stile – Adding the text version!
The Shards did Fall upon this land,
Vast mountains crumbled into sand,
Molten rain from dark skies above,
And Death took those we once loved.
From broken ruins of society’s few,
Came cankered birth, Obsidian hued,
Empire of Twilight’s envisioned Eye,
Doom’s approach draws closer nigh.
In Order’s grip twisted by Chaos’ hand,
Victims of evil’s Pride, left unfit to stand,
Once of Light, stolen from grace’s reign,
Enslaved by Darkness into monstrous pain.
But risen against these ensorcelled fiends,
Those that bring freedom by their means,
Rulers, nobles, lords, all come massed,
Council of Might, strong standing fast.
Through hardship’s struggle, born of pain,
Tempered by courage, forged by its flame,
Futures are weighed, fate’s balance hangs,
Waiting moment, turned on blade’s tang.
Britannia’s wounds fester, poisoned within,
Heroes and villains in battle’s great din,
Shattered moon, reminds of past paid tolls,
Divided, forsaken, all stand as lost souls.
(Inspired by events as told in Blade of the Avatar.)
