Council of Tea-Leaves

Scary Monsters
...and as he waited on the lower deck, he hummed and old tune ....

It was a horror of rooms
and we tired
of this sky high sea.
When I searched the lower deck, it was gloomy with nobody home.

We were looking for a killer
and we didn’t like the way that he do
and he do.
We opened strange doors
that we’d never close again.

We bagan to wail terrible screams
Killer in the boiler room know what I mean.

Scary monsters, super creeps
Keep me running, running scared.
Scary monsters, super creeps
Keep me running, running scared.

Whispered words to Desna

Undead_Medusa.jpg


No rest for the wicked, they say….. Well, let me tell you, no rest for the Chaotic Good either! After a hard time adventuring, I took my rest, as both my body and your worship demands. They say I snored loudly while blade clashed against elemental beast, but I know nothing of this. It seemed my awakening was sharp and sudden, and who in his right mind would wish to wake up next to a Xorn?

Actually, who would wish to wake up and start the morning with a battle against an undead Medusa. The Evil gods must be testing us, oh Goddess of Dreams. Throw in evil soulblades, rascally halfings and re-awakened treants and you will see most clearly that we struggle ever in your honour, oh Queen.

But many thanks be due, for you have lifted the veil from our eyes and shown us the wiles of Drumvoro and the wicked ways of that rude and obnoxious servant, Roddenai. Roddenai! Aye! And an Eye for an Eye! What goes around, comes around, I say.

Desna, give us strength!

Red Blades and Dark Shadows
Whispered words to Desna

Shadow_Demon_by_PreciousNothin.jpg

With the wind of the wings of the butterfly behind us, we strode into the evil domain of he that is named The Red Blade. Countless were his minions, untold his mirror images.
From within the fog of dreams I was able to keep my friends and I alive as they battled bravely against all manner of beasts. In the end, it was not enough to save that valiant ranger of the Sable Company and we were forced to enter even darker tunnels.

Here there was not a flutter and I felt my eyesight dim, hardly believing such a thing possible. But through the HOLY power of Cayden Cailaen we pushed through, past the Demon of Darkness, to claim our prizes. Hard won they were and in the end that demon of dread remained unscathed; but at least we made it out, and our noble ranger lives. We had to reach out deftly to save the halfling, but luckily his love handles provide good grip and we were able to avert his certain death.

Your amulet I will wear with honour and pride throughout all my life, oh greatest Desna, Queen of Dreams!

A prayer to Desna

Desna_Holy_Symbol.jpg

Desna, you are the light and the way!
Show us the great spires of Tamavar but keep us from its dark alleys where evil breeds.
Enlighten us with your butterflies of awakening,
but keep hidden those purveyors of slavery and perversion that cover its darkest places.
Wrap your wings around Davok, Davril and Aaron and keep me ever on your path;
For you are the ever wondrous Holy Night Sky!

“Praise be to Desna for The Sable Company!
Your inspiration in their training is worthy of reverence,
as evinced by your loyal soldier in action!
All Hail, Aaron Glaw!
(Now, we just have to work on the faith of that halfling!)”

A Song for Desna

Glass_Golem.jpg

Most Noble Desna, Giver of Dreams,
Guardian of Butterflies, Controller of Memes.
You restoreth our faith with protection from charm,
You deliver us from evil, and keep us from harm.
No Daemon from Hades can darken your power,
No Golem of Glass in its guardian tower
Can reflect your magnificence in your triumphant hour.

A Song for Desna

Monastery.jpg


Hairy great gnolls who howl with hyenas
Now rest in the ground and wish they’d not seen us.
Harpy who lies at the foot of a cliff
Is smelly and silent and lies rather stiff.
Discovered shrine robber with not much to say
Takes stock of his life after running away.
Now as the dragon son demon approaches
Dwarves scurry around in a city like roaches.

The very earth shakes with anticipation
But the spirit of Desna sings with elation.

A prayer to Desna

Undead_Tree_Creature.jpg

Joyous Desna
Away from your pale shelter
Deep in darkest tree
We ride the helter skelter
Smite undeath to be free
A deeper darkness bites
The hand that prays is offered
amidst the dearth of light
I worship dreams you proferred
A butterfly’s wing stills all the world’s air
And breath of Goddess Desna
Turns all that’s foul to fair.

The Ever Changing Light
A poem for Desna

Rausmal.jpg

That veil of swirling darkness
that clouds the eyes of Gods
is lifted.
Shafts of time seep in,
visions wrought
by dreams distilled,
and sifted.
Images of future bright
are let through casual dreams…
imprinted,
deep in faithful soul.
New futures
by these very dreams
are hinted.
