Song and Prayer
by Draginbeard

Howdy folks,

Spent the first half of the day helping a friend move. Got some work done on my car and got in a little story work for the comic. Ive gotten a little dwarven prayer, and a song that I want to add in to give a little depth to the character and the world. Never really did any kind of song writing before, it aint easy.

Here is what I came up with;

A Dwarven battle prayer.

Maker grant me strength of arm, and help me set  to grim purpose.

Let my aim cut deep, and my reach be long.

Help me rain fear and despair upon those that would do me harm.

Let me stand true against the darkest odds, and win pride and glory in your eyes.

When comes due the butchers bill, let it be paid in coin steeped in my enemies blood.

I sing the Makers song and accept my fate, only give me time to finish a mortals task, to leave a mound of life-fled foes upon the grass.

 

The Butchers Song.

For family, for glory, and anvils story.

We are the children of the builders worry.

We live for kin and warmth of clan.

We've joy for  gleaming treasure beneath the land.

We fight fierce and earn the iron in our beards.

From our heart  beats the might our enemy ever fears.

We march for Kin and fight for clan.

We set our blades and make our stand.

In times of dark and nights gone cold, let the deeds this day be ever told.

We live for kin and warmth of clan.

We've joy for  gleaming treasure beneath the land.

Grant us courage against our foes.

Guide our hand and clear our nose.

We march for Kin and fight for clan.

We set our blades and make our stand.

If I'm to expire out of bed,  grant me time before I'm dead.

To convey receipt of celestial debt, and offer up their servants bloody head!

 

It aint poetry, but I think it will pass.

 

Last update the colors were really shoddy looking. Honestly, at the time (and it was one of my first attempts to color) I thought it looked pretty good. Im doing much better than that now. This Friday is a way better job in the coloring aspect. At least I think so. Its also the end of a three-update week. Things go back to normal and hopefully I can build up my buffer a bit more.

Thats about all thats going on around here. I hope everyone has a great weekend!

See you next update!
