In case you haven't noticed, Genesis has awakened the muse in the heart of one excellent character named Zillian. Far and wide, travelling from town to town, she posts prose, poetry, and song of various forms to all the far corners of the donut. Some have suggested that her works be cataloged and kept together. I wasn't sure where such a thread might belong on the forum, so I've gone ahead and opted for this location.

If you see something of hers and feel it belongs here, post away! Because it is contextually valuable, I also suggest (as I have done below) including the information about where the original material was placed (e.g. on the Bree Board.)

Skunk Berry Blues                          79 Zillian      22 Apr 2018


As told to me by the legendary pirate John Lee Hook

-----------------

Wanna tell ya a story...
'bout the skunk-berry blues...
though purple in colour...
they got dangerous fumes...

Out I went one Friday...
armed lookin' for some fights...
diggin' Eriador...
I done found me some wights...

So there was my Pirate ass...
sword-wielding and sassy...
down in a barrow hole...
liquored-up and gassy...

I was reelin' and rockin'...
the berries went down easy...
and in the usual way...
I got to feelin' queasy...

Steppin' through the barrow...
it got to bein' dark...
fumblin' round with a torch...
I struck a mighty spark...

But I forgot 'bout skunk gas...
wights laughed "Fire in the hole"...
and outta the ground I popped...
like a bright burnin' mole...

A figure on fire, I ran through the Shire...

In Bree, I searched for water...
found the well dry and stony...
then all smoulderin' and smokin'...
I found the Prancin' Pony...

Asked for a water bucket...
barkeep laughed and shook his head...
so I took the Pirate Way...
and drank up to not be dead...

The bartender came down...
I said, listen to me...
one drink ain't enough...
man you better bring three...

I want: One bourbon, one scotch, one beer!
... One bourbon ... One Scotch ... and One Beer!

Barkeep saw the flames growin'...
he was concerned for my health...
and scooted down askin'...
Can I get you somethin' else?

I cried: One bourbon, one scotch, one beer!
... One bourbon ... One Scotch ... and One Beer!

My goose was smellin' cooked...
was burnin' up, no feignin'...
I drank like the Devil but...
on me Death was gainin'...

I mimed: One bourbon, one scotch, one beer!
... One bourbon ... One Scotch ... and One Beer!

In the end I ponder'd on...
all the drinks I've drunk in bars...
I punch'd the barkeep's face...
and went down to see old Lars...

carrying ... One bourbon ... One Scotch ... and One Beer!

(Cheers y'all)

First of all thank you Gorboth to honour her this way. Ive been reading a lot of her stories, always surpriced how fast and easy it seems to come to her.
Second, she already mentioned this before: Most of her stories about the realms are in the storytellersclub. She is also a librarian there, and so polite not to put her own stories on the shelf, but let me be the judge of if they fit there.
Zillian is funny, extremely creative and people like her make rp so much more fun.

Here is one of her stories she wrote, when she decided the Worshippers was not her place.
The [i]booms in a deep voice[/i] made me laugh out loud, since some of the conversations in this story was what she had with me.
After she left the worshippers training and became a pirate, we both had a drinking contest. Still waiting for a song about that :).

Goldbezie stands tall and declaims in a loud voice:
Seek you a new stone Temple! Deep in a vale!
Go! Open your heart and mind! Step from the trail!
Enlightenment is Dawning!
but heed this warning:
If Undead on Arrival, you'll not prevail!
Goldbezie pretends to search high and low, miming the putting of items in a pack:
To craft Pentacle, Dagger, Chalice and Wand,
'tis Your Quest, Seeker, of the type, We are fond!
Goldbezie continues:
So, fly with the Wind seeking for Aeria?
or hunt with a hammer for fossils of Gu?
both high and low, you'd best scour the area,
without wisdom nor luck and nary a clue!
Goldbezie continues in frustration:
What then? Trawl the depths for Lord Diabrecho?
Or rub sticks together? Hoping for Pyros?
Hark! Is that Laughter? Or just a fey Echo?
As you wander lost with a pack full of dross!
Goldbezie uses a deep otherworldly voice, asking:
What is your intention Seeker?
Goldbezie answers the question:
To be a Healer....
Goldbezie booms in the deep voice:
A Healer?
Goldbezie whispers of her vision:
quiet battlefield
rain falls on bloody bodies
beads run into rills
Goldbezie continues in a whisper:
quiet attendant
drifting between the wounded
tears lost to the rain
Goldbezie continues with determination:
quiet handiwork
staunch the flow, bind the wounds
dam mortal fluids
Goldbezie wipes her brow before finishing:
quiet reflection
amidst dark mud and puddles
unarmed, red handed
Goldbezie booms in a deep voice:
I see Seeker, then you must respect the Clerics
of the Temple, for we can show you the
Way of the Elementals!
Goldbezie ponders, searches through scrolls and searches her heart:
Ponder the quiet pool with silky mirror sheen,
that belies its depth filled with water crisp and clean,
then hawk and spit and see how the surface behaves,
ripple from the loogie -- the harbinger of waves.
Goldbezie booms:
Heretic! I discharge thee!
Goldbezie staggers with a cheeky grin, slurring her words:
A dark crisis of faith pushed me over the brink,
found no wisdom in scrolls, so perhaps then in drink?
I crawled from the Temple to old Orgula's Inn,
and sought out Lord Water in deep bottles of gin.
Goldbezie takes a deep draught from her favourite bottle, then moans:
Woe Diabrecho! You denied me your blessing,
and I was dead drunk when Pirates came pressing,
"Heed not mortal clerics!" so goes my Heresy,
now drunk on a black ship, I seek truth girt by sea.
Goldbezie lifts her bottle to you and shouts out:
Cheers Matey!
Goldbezie falls down

Forever Free                               21 Zillian      26 May 2018


Old smell of timber in the yard,
Free Mercenaries train so hard,
To go, to fight, to die for pay,
Over the seas and far away.

One hundred platinum on the stump,
Learn to cut, to crush, to thump,
To go, to fight, to die for pay,
Over the seas and far away.

We Mercenaries are all Free,
To seek out skills and company,
To go, to fight, to die for pay,
Over the seas and far away.

Over the seas and far away,
we go, we fight, we die for pay,
For golden coins we take the knee,
But beware! We're forever Free!


Semi-recently posted on the Mercenary guild board. Charming!
