  • After writing some Hobbit Poetry, I was in a poem mood, and tried to write some for evil factions. This may get expanded later, but here are the few I have so far:


    #title:Off to Barad-dûr
    #author:{Orc Name}
    #types:mordor,angmar, dol_guldur,gundabad
    #
    #by Campinator
    #A marching chant
    #
    The night is long and the day is bright
    but we, the orcs, don't need a light.
    We scatter enemies in fright
    on our way to Barad-dûr.
    #
    Work, work, work, lads!
    We're off to Barad-dûr.
    #
    Our enemies they run in fear
    when our tramping footsteps gather near
    and so we march and march and march and march.
    For we're off to Barad-dûr.
    #
    Work, work, work, lads!
    We're off to Barad-dûr.
    #
    Over the mountains tall and cold
    we venture everywhere, so bold!
    And then we turn to that stronghold
    the mighty Barad-dûr.
    #
    Work, work, work, lads!
    We're off to Barad-dûr.
    

    Note: if mentions of pixelated Nurn slavery has the potential to offend you, don't read this. Shouldn't be necessary but it's 2017...

    #title:A Slave's Lament
    #author:Nurn Slave
    #types:mordor
    #
    #by Campinator
    #
    The master's whip makes fearful slaves
    But still we work among the wheat.
    For what is left but fearful knaves
    after we've been harshly beat?
    

    If you're not a maggot, step up and throw some advice at me.

    • It's great. But would Orcs be off to Barad-dûr? They'd be more likely to be off to somewhere else, seemingly, but poetic license excuses you. Also, would Gundabad or Angmar Orcs ever be 'off to Barad-dûr'?

      This is a marching chant, as the comments reveal, so for the orcs, Barad-dur represents the center of battle and command, as well as the actual capital of Mordor for the Mordor Orcs. For the others, it symbolized their getting ready for war. Who knows, maybe a lost skirmish of Mordorians even found their way into Angmar? As long as there's a little bit of defense I'll keep it in there for poetic effect.

    • Very Nice!

      I've included both of those.

      Thank you for taking the time to put it in the format and include types. A couple of things for the future: #author should be lowercase (you got it right in the second one) and make sure you preface all lines not in the text with #, even empty lines for spacing.
