And in our group there was a Dragons geek
His skin was white, and his body was weak
But what he lacked in strength and body mass
He made up for in knowledge of Wee Jas.
He warned the others about her powers
His truthful teaching went on for hours.
After he was done, the Pardoner said,
“You and I are brothers, my good friend!”
“Dear sir, are you accusing me of lies?
I swear to Vecna my words have no ties
They are free and true, Nerull strike me down.
You say we are brothers?  To that I frown.”
There is no loyal a man than the geek.
Just ask the elves, orcs, or dwarves: they’ll shriek
And talk of his goodness and vast wisdom
Surpassing that of a silver dragon.
Even Erythnul will show him pardon
For his path has been chosen by Fharlanghn.
He is destined to help those most in need,
To spread the word and sew the seed
Of Gods and Goddesses seated most high,
Which can be hard, since he hardly sees sky.
how i love them so :heart: this is not meant to be offensive to anyone, especially since i myself play dungeons and dragons when my brother and i are bored. we had to write a poem in english class using heroic couplets (sorry if its in the wrong category). the point was to portray a character the way chaucer would if they were in the canterbury tales. i, as you can tell, chose the D&D geek. if you get this assignment at your school too, be warned: this is on turnitin.com! beware, for Erythnul is always watching...

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

so my poem makes sense:

Wee Jas, goddess of magic, death, vanity, and law.
Vecna, god of destructive and evil secrets.
Nerull, god of death, darkness, murder and the underworld.
Erythnul, god of hate, envy, malice, panic, ugliness, and slaughter.
Fharlanghn, god of horizons, distance, travel, and roads.

Geeks are such lovely people. They are pale and gangly but are true paladins that are driven by justice.

If I'm right, and this is coming from a D&D Adept here, the part where the D&D Geek says 'I swear to Vecna' is more of a curse than a prayer. Not like a witches curse, but more like 'Damn it', or 'Fuck this'.

Pardon my language and my French there good sir.

Cool poem but the line "There is no loyal a man than the geek" is really unpleasant to read.
Reply
:iconnine-tailed-fox:
Nine-Tailed-Fox Featured By Owner Jul 29, 2009  Professional General Artist
do you mean it is unpleasant because it reads funny, or that it is offensive? if it reads funny, it might be because i needed to use heroic couplets / in iambic pentameter and sound like chaucer's voice.
regardless, i'm glad you like it :)
