Scribe's Contest XI - Winners! - Admiral - 09-04-2017 03:07 AM



Winners of Scribe's Contest XI: The True Nature of the Father of Darkness

"Smokin'!"




Just like all the other rounds, we had a neat turn-out of entries, with submissions spanning from bloodthirsty cult hymns to cheeky stuff. It was great to see such songs written upon dry parchment!

No doubt the texts were all written in spilt blood with trembling hands, or carved into the skulls of foes. Takes Hat off

And now, ladies and gentlemen, the winners!





Entry #4: Ikkred Pyrhelm (1st)

Lammasu

Darkling fire come smother me
Let shadows fill my mind
With your power I shall see
My soul to Hashut I bind

Bone!

Once splintered and smashed
Mended with artisan skill
Flame of furnace lashed
Sheathed in dark steel

Skin!

Once broken and shorn
Fused with fury and fire
In Hashut’s image reborn
Hardened and cracked by pyre

Soul!

Food for Hashut’s thirst
This I do gladly yield
And so become the First
Hooves beat the battlefield

I am Dawi no more
Gone the weakness within
Gone my outer flaws
His word I shall bring

Bone!

Once splintered and smashed
Mended with artisan skill
Flame of furnace lashed
Sheathed in dark steel

Skin!

Once broken and shorn
Fused with fury and fire
In Hashut’s image reborn
Hardened and cracked by pyre

Soul!

Food for Hashut’s thirst
This I do gladly yield
And so become the First
Hooves beat the battlefield

His word I shall bring!
His glory I shall sing!
I am Lammasu!






Entry #5: Carcearion (2nd tie)

(Chorus, softly): Lift the hammer!

There’s no earthly way of knowing
How many hours we’ve been moaning
There’s no knowing how long we’re going
Or how hot the bellows blowing

(Chorus, louder than before): Lift the hammer!

Not a spec of light is showing
So His hunger must be growing
Are the fires of hell a-glowing?
Are the temple daggers flowing?

(Chorus, yet louder than before): Lift the hammer!

Yes, His hunger must be growing
For the blood and steel keep flowing!
And they’re certainly not showing!
Any signs that they are slowing!

(Chorus, loud and boisterous): Lift the hammer and strike and again! That’s the Daemonsmith’s way!






Entry #6: Abecedar (2nd tie)

Temple Chant Number    7-11   

Clang         =         Large Bronze Gong being hit
Thump     =     Bass Drum beats    or    Staff Butts banged onto the floor

>HASHUT!<     Clang     >Aaaaaaaaaaah!<
>Saviour of the Dawi Zharr!<
Thump, … thump,    …    thump, thump, thump, thump, thump, thump, thump, thump.

>HASHUT!<     Clang     >Aaaaaaaaaaah!<
>He saved every one of us!<
Thump, … thump,    …    thump, thump, thump, thump, thump, thump, thump, thump.

>HASHUT!<     Clang     >Aaaaaaaaaaah!<
>He has blessed our noble race!<
Thump, … thump,    …    thump, thump, thump, thump, thump, thump, thump, thump.

>HASHUT!<     Clang     >Aaaaaaaaaaah!<
>He is our Father in Darkness!<
Thump, … thump,    …    thump, thump, thump, thump, thump, thump, thump, thump.

>HASHUT!<     Clang     >Aaaaaaaaaaah!<
>He owns every-one of us<
Thump!
>The souls of every-one of us!<
Thump!
>With a mighty hoof, he’ll crush the world<
>And the Dawi Zharr will rule . . all!<
Thump, … thump,    …    thump, thump, thump, thump, thump, thump, thump, thump. 






Entry #2: Admiral (3rd)

Break or Be Broken

See!
Hear!
Know!

We are the forsaken ones,
in the thrall of dread Dark God,
our dedication absolute...

Hearts of stone,
and fevered minds,
the Dark God's own,
the broken kind's.

Break!
Break!
Break or be broken!

See!
Hear!
Know!

We are the toiling ones,
cursed by ancestors and gods,
our damnation assured...

Wills of steel,
madness chained,
the master's heel,
the honour stained.

Break!
Break!
Break or be broken!

See!
Hear!
Know!

We are the chosen ones,
erecting greatest works,
to His dominion claim...

Souls on fire,
a world to scour,
the hardship dire,
the hunger for power.

Break!
Break!
Break or be broken!

Break!
Break!
Break or be broken!

Break!
Break!
Break or be broken!

Woo hoo... A second place.
Great contest and congrats to Ikred, the other place holders and the other entries.
And I did use basically one of the few songs I know almost by heart.

Congratulations to the people who won, some really nice entries here.

Congrats to all four winners!  So cool when a tie sneaks in!  Takes Hat offCheers! A great job on this one!  

Abecedar, it seems yours was bound to win a medal on this one.  Instant recognition and I found myself singing along almost immediately!  Though I am now sorely disappointed that your airship was lacking a B-50 Superfortress (edit: or perhaps a Dornier Do-31 cockpit exterior is closer) style cockpit and the mandatory pointed nose needle...

I may have loved #5 and #6 a little too much. Tongue

Wow, I wasn't sure how this one would pan out. Stunning songs all around and it felt that it could have gone any way.

Thirteen hundred thanks (and squeaking backstabs) to all those who voted for my little ditty (the whole Lammasu part kinda wrote itself in there), everyone else for entering such great song-things, and finally to the organiser-meats who make these compys possible! :bow:
