Nest's Pest

A plan had been hatched when the green moon degressed,
for Prophet Neburak to seek fortune in far west.

Orc guts were read raw as altar's fires waned modest,
signs for an axeman whom Hashut power would vest.

Then two Dark Castellans kneeled down to Neburak at Bullfest,
and at his order they from scalemail undressed.

In front of his great harem they then in craft of death excessed,
in the arena they from black orc's fists did axes wrest.

The Dark Castellans then with axeswings all arena orcs processed,
in front of the Prophet they could not have done their least.

As per the Prophet Neburak's will they completed their contest,
when the weaker dwarf's skull by an axe was compressed.

Dark Castellan gory Urik as the lonely victor was adressed,
and high Neburak to Urik his plan then confessed.

His slaves toiled till they died as army's bagage was assessed,
for Neburak all his treasure in this venture did invest.

He set forth with a grand army whipped to never let it rest,
yet its aim the high council could only have guessed.

Before the host's advance all ugly orc and goblinkin was pressed,
as tribes in the mountains and Dark Lands could attest.

When Groog-Hoogla Khan to high Neburak spoke out of jest,
the Prophet drew dagger and stabbed him in the chest.

The foul Karaks of old locked gates and were greatly depressed,
as we marched through the pass without any request.

With our raids in Border Princes we found knights out on a quest,
who instead of lady found themselves most distressed.

Men were enslaved and children torn from mother's breast,
our march saw lesser peoples by Hashut suppressed.

At the ford of river Orco goblins did then our campaign arrest,
yet we conquered in blood and harshly oppresssed.

Thus bolstering our ranks with fresh green slave troops to detest,
we march round Blighted Marshes to reach the vile pest.

Then Neburak bridged swamps with raft walkways which he blessed,
and Dark Castellan Urik entered Skavenblight at his behest.

Grim Urik led but two thousand warriors into ratmen's giant nest,
then created blackest panic when he fearshards did digest.

Skaven climbed the walls and clawed their throats without bequest,
as Urik the Dreaded made himself the ratmen's guest.

In the darkest of all terrors rat killed rat as they egressed,
under cover of panic Urik's chosen thus progressed.

Skavenblight in chaos into wildest civil war disgressed,
and Urik violently heathen chambers now accessed.

The Stormvermin guards in chamber had in rusty armour dressed,
tall Fangleader shrieked that we had too far transgressed.

Dreaded Urik led our charge and cut off the Fangleader's crest,
frightening its minions as axeman the rat corpse messed.

In bloody pursuit of the mob we found among trampled unrest,
one Grey Seer in coma with his bloodshot rat eyes stressed.

Horned ratman gnawing all his warpstone had one nasty life regressed,
yet gave one Daemon life like the Skaven god made manifest.

In challenge to craven Verminlord Urik roared what he possessed,
raising darkforged axehead high to show the Daemon who's best.

In a hellish confrontation gaining the Dark Gods' interest,
dreaded Urik for Hashut and his Prophet passed the test.

Since back again in Zharr-Naggrund Neburak's might many impressed,
we suspect what from that chamber Urik for him did harvest.

- Chaos Dwarf rhyme song, to be sung to accompanying music

clapped my hands while reading, really good rhyme, great work with environment as always Happy got sucked in.

An arena would be a very cool display...

EDIT: We should find a musically gifted showbusiness man or woman and start a youtube channel!

Thank you! A Chaos Dwarf slave pit fight with opulent elite spectator seats would fit pretty well.

I've thought about searching for musicians, voice actors or just people on CDO with dark dwarfy voices, but they'd have to do it for free! Tongue

Thanks! The trick is generally this for every line: Go fast in the start, slow down toward the middle, then speed up again.

Awesome. It has great rhythm. As I read it, I envisaged a thousand ironshod boots and hooves stamping in time in a great hall.
