Normally don't post these here, but my group really liked this effort and though I should. Hope you enjoy. My character, a Vingan and Kallyr fan-girl, is walking to the Hill of Orlanth VIctorious to watch and cheer on Kallyr's great Heroquest of Sea Season 1626. She is an excellent singer, and composed this entirely original (not) song along the way. I came upon a Child of Wind He was flying along the road And I asked him, where are you going And this he told me I'm going on up to Orlanth's Hill I'm going to join in a Lightbringer's Quest follow steps of the great Harmast I'm going to try an' get my soul free She is Starbrow She is golden And we've got to get ourselves To our Queen's garden Then can I walk beside you I was searching for my lost hog And I feel to be a cog in something turning Well maybe it is just the time of year Or maybe it's the time of man I don't know who l am But you know life is for learning She is Starbrow She is golden And we've got to get ourselves To our Queen's garden By the time we reached Victorious We were half a million strong And everywhere there was song and celebration And I dreamed I saw the dragons Orlanth's Ring up in the sky And Bats were turning into butterflies Above our nation She is Starbrow Queen of Sartar and Kheldon She is golden Caught in the Spider's bargain And we've got to get ourselves To our Queen's garden
Gloranthans - Players arrive in the vicinity of the Sun Dome around twilight; Yelmalio's sacred time. From the dome, a masculine chorus chants the evening song; it is a somewhat melancholy chant, about duty, honor, and all those things so precious to Yelmalians. This is the evening chant, sacred to Yelmalio, and a reminder to his followers of their god's eternal watch. In some areas, it is then followed by a female song, praising the starts (Yelorna's chant). The chant is done a cappella. A yelmalian out in the field might sing it himself, as a way of reaffirming his faith while on the road. Now, my poets and authors: What are the words to the chant? Anybody here ready to take up the challenge to write some?
