- The Bard -

Spin the dagger, roll the dice!

Such a chance won't happen twice.

For a shelter from the cold,

I will tell you tales untold.

.

For the brave ones in the crowd,

I will sing of heroes proud,

Of the blades' unearthly call

And great kingdoms' rise and fall.

.

For the ladies sweet and fair,

I know tales beyond compare:

Of young love thwarted by knaves,

Strong and fierce until the grave.

.

For a bed and for a meal,

Mysteries I can reveal;

Gather round, both young and old,

Hear a story worth your gold.

.

Through my travels I have seen

Wonders wilder than your dreams:

Dragons fierce by archers killed

And their lairs with treasures filled.

.

Dwarves that built their spacious halls

Behind mountains' granite walls,

Guarded by a magic door

To protect their fathers' lore.

.

Those are sights for blessed eyes;

Yet elsewhere true magic lies:

Beyond borders of the land,

Far from home of dwarf and man.

.

I sought an ancient domain

Where the shadows long since reign.

Straying far from human roads,

Deep into the woods I rode,

.

And, beneath the silver light

Of a quiet summer night,

Hidden by the trees themselves,

I have found the path of elves.

.

I have watched, my heart entranced,

How they sung and how they danced

Until the first rays of dawn

Found me cold and all alone.

.

Gather round beside the fire!

Listen all your heart's desire.

I will sing 'til dawn is nigh,

'Til my throat is parched and dry.

.

Gather round, join those who fell,

For a night, under my spell.

Peasant, noble, thief or guard,

Buy a story from the bard!
