(A poem Siegvard wrote following the Battle at the High Mages' Seat. I'll likely update this thread with other poems or stories he writes following in game events, or any others that I can think of that he may have written before. Feedback is always appriciated!)

The Climb

In the lands of the Fae,
Where magic and stories weave,
They trudged and they toiled,
To the Seat where the High Mage sits,
Their wits like springs, were coiled,

They knew their task,
Simple; it was not,
Their fear came to pass,
For many this battle might be their last.

The Daemons came in a sweeping tide,
Their claws and blades were sharp,
A cry went up from our Heroes' ranks,
"Stand fast my friends, stand fast!".

Faithful Tavian led the Healers' ranks,
Their magic and thread saved many a score,
And again many more,
Without their aid our Heroes would fall,
And the Dark would have won the day,

Lady Bedaline led the ritual magic,
The Mages weaving and channelling,
Their energy was drained, their bodies were weak,
Normal mortal would have fallen,
Yet these powerful mystics continued to fight,
Driving on through to first light,

Nimble Edward the Woodsman led the Skirmishers' ranks,
Driving the enemy from those at risk,
They danced betwixt the Daemons' blades,
Countless lives their speed did save,
Through the battlefield they roved taking their kills,
Like spirits of vengeance they fought
On the High Mages' Hill.

Noble Taurinil led the fighter's ranks,
Brave Warriors with Arms and Armour,
They formed their lines,
And held them fast,
Heroes of old would not have been calmer,
The Daemons washed against them,
As waves on the shore,
Yet yield they did not.
Like the sailors' knot,
They held,
They held.

Though lives were lost,
And our Heroes despaired,
Their victory was achieved,
This tale, dear friends, must be remembered
As the day from the Daemons we were freed. [/i][/b]

I walked alone through orchards empty,
Here, through the dark, my heart had sent me,
And though my heart had now grown cold,
A spark of light flared bright and bold.

A single Dove went floating by
A streak of white in the pale, night sky,
I heard its cry, a lilting whistle,
Clear, pure, perfect; crystal.

A second call split the night,
A Hawk it's wings ablaze with light,
From the clouds on high, down it spun,
With a blood chilling cry, two became one.

Talons flashed stained with red,
As the Hawk and Dove in battle, were wed.

Light flashed and thunder rolled,
Terror had my heart ahold.

Suddenly the thunder stopped,
Believe me please, no lies I concoct,
The Dove and Hawk were joined as one,
Its visage caught in a ray of sun,

Majestic feathers of brown and white,
With wings swept back in swift flight,
A perfect pairing; Predator and Prey,
It's purpose clear the light of day.

I watched the bird disappear,
The sky once stormy, now was clear,
The morning sun slowly rose
And brought the night to a close.

I walked alone through orchards empty,
Here, through the dark, my heart had sent me,
And where my heart had once been cold,
The Flame of Courage now shone, bright and bold.
