    Here we find an old Human Ode from post-Deicide War.  Research shows popularity among the destitute or lower class, or in times of hardships like wartime or burials.

     

    Across The Sea

    (Sung to the popular lament of "Copper For Your Trouble.")

    Oh where will we;

    Oh where will we;

    Oh where will we away to?

    Off to meet the hammer’s call;

    There across the sea.

     

    What will come;

    What will come;

    What will come to meet us?

    Na’dor comes to greet us all;

    There across the sea.

     

    What is said;

    What is said;

    What is said about us?

    Na’dor sings a happy song;

    There across the sea.

     

    Who will come;

    Who will come;

    Who will come to take us?

    We will feel Korcera’s kiss;

    There across the sea.

     

    What of them;

    What of them;

    What of them we leave here?

    They will be along in time;

    There across the sea.

     

    May I go;

    May I go;

    May I go farewell them?

    ‘Tis too late, the ship is sailing;

    There across the sea.

    Hey Benonai, this is my first comment on the forum and your post was the first one I read here last night.

    I made a short audio inspired by your lyrics. It's the first time I tried to create something like this and I enjoyed the process a lot! :)

    Thanks for the inspiration.

    Welcome Squashy! And welcome to the forums. I love that the first place you came is the fan fic! This is actually the busiest fan fic page of any MMO I've ever played. I think you'll fit in nicely. And most people here had your same story; they were just inspired by the game. Thanks for doing the song justice! Love it.

    Loved the original lyrics, Benonai, and was totally thinking of putting something like this together, but SquashyHat! You beat me to it! And it's awesome!

    Great job dude, so happy to see this!

    You're not off the hook, Desryn!  You must compete to the death with Squashy and myself to be immortalized as writer for first bard song in Pantheon.  Heard you trying to pass the buck yesterday on Rewind!
