  1. New most favorite song EVER!

    Ensiferum - From Afar

    A raven came to me,
    Spoke to me in my dream.
    A long lost prophecy,
    A forgotten legacy.

    Echoes of yesterday,
    Won't let these dreams fade away.
    All the beauty I adored,
    At the edge of the world.

    Across the universe,
    Time is to be reversed.
    No shelter can be found,
    To this fate, we are bound!

    Behold the final hour,
    The last times will be dour.
    All life falls into gorge
    Of the end of the world!

    "Burning skies
    On the vengeances night.
    Devastating scythe,
    Of the ancient Light."

    I saw the might,
    Of the ancient Light!
    And the beauty of the perishing world,
    There's no tomorrow.
    We have been warned.

    "The sky's bird struck fire,
    Made a flame flare up.
    The north wind burnt the clearing.
    The north-east quite consumed it:
    It burnt all the trees to ash and reduced them to dust."

    In this frozen moment two powers stare down each other
    The wind begins to clamor against our backs, that is the -Sign-

    Cutting through the silence they clash
    Thunder!! Power Storm!
    All things are pulled into the vortex of destiny

    Piercing the darkness the light runs, faster than anyone
    Hotter, fiercer, higher, gracefully dance!
    Keep running down the road to victory!

    ※Rock Alright! We should
    Be able to fly higher than anyone in this eternal sky
    Rock Alright! Break through
    Even space and time with this Speed
    Light aflame our -Saga-

    At this cliff to an alternate dimension two powers fight each other
    A shadow sways at the edge of our breath

    This moment you raise your sword sparks fly
    Thunder! Power Sword!!
    Leave it all to fate

    When the moon is full become a beast and unleash the blade
    Powerfully, proudly and gracefully
    Soar high into this warring sky

    Rock Alright! Always, we want to protect this planet
    With endless love
    Rock Alright! Even the future
    Embrace it all and with Speed
    Break through -Saga-

  3. Once the portal deposited them in the snow near Bitter Ridge, Halathar picked himself up from the ground. He brushed away the clinging snow with his free hand, the other still in a sling. There had been other injuries in the caravan that had taken precedence for the limited healing they possessed at the moment and a broken arm had been low on their list of priorities. The bone had been set and splinted and he had been given a draught to take for when the pain became unmanageable but he had given it away. When the elves had fled Aerilas, it had been primarily with what they could carry, some only with what they had on their backs at the time. Their supplies of healing herbs had been exhausted.

    Sinaht's jest was met with a somewhat melancholy gaze. No, he was in no mood for levity. A mere hour before now he had been given the most dire news of his life. His sister's mind had been ravaged most cruelly, any hint of her brother's love burned until nothing, not even ashes, remained. He still blamed himself and that self-loathing was something he could not hide from his face.

    As was to be expected, they were soon approached, and greeted by citizens of Bitter Ridge. Questions surrounding the whereabouts of his twin elicited a pained look.

    Once they were settled within the Sable Bear, Halathar remained silent while Sinaht regaled them with his ridiculous tale about the Emerald Vale. His teeth ground, jaw clenching. Normally he found the mage's humour and lack of reverence amusing, refreshing even. But at the moment he wanted nothing more than kick out the legs of his chair.

    Eyes closing, his head shook as Sinaht finally finished. "Thank you Sinaht, for your rousing interpretation of events." He muttered.

    With a heavy exhale, he shifted back in his chair. Eyes opened to level his gaze upon those assembled. "But more or less, the last part is what happened. The Goddess Elaea came to my sister during our Reverie. She told my sister that the Fallen Saint was holding her captive and beseeched Alatariel to set her free. When we arrived in Caras Palatheon, the portal carrying us separated us. Raithe'Velen managed to convince King Rhimaethor to publicly urge the elves to fight, which started a riot in the Square during a public demonstration by the Betrayer's minions."

    He paused then, lowering his eyes to the surface of the table. "Meanwhile Alatariel made her way into the Temple of Elaea alone and confronted Undumenna himself to free the Lady Avatar. They battled...the Temple was brought to ruin around them. What happened there is not clear, but Alatariel succeeded in freeing the Goddess and they escaped. She and Raithe'Velen now lead the remaining elves who are not under Undumenna's control here, with the Avatar shielding their flight. There are several hundred of us, about a day's march from here. Sinaht and I were sent to...announce our impending arrival."

    They had succeeded in their task. Elaea free, those not yet under Undumenna's power evacuated. And yet the young ranger looked so profoundly sad. A stoic fatigue lingered in his expression, but it was the sorrow that was truly striking. "I must ask a favour of you and any other who might interact with my sister from here onward. Before they escaped from the Temple, Undumenna ravaged Alatariel's mind." His lips pursed together as he attempted to contain the bitterness that overwhelmed him. "Every memory she has of me is gone. In her mind, she..." It filled his mouth with the taste of ash to say the words. "...she has no brother. The Avatar says that if it were not for her strength of will and her connection to me, my sister would have gone mad from the violation. Alatariel hovers on the precipice of madness and sanity and it will take time for her to heal before she is ready to learn of what exactly was taken from her. Even then, she will never be the same."

    I felt the ground I felt the snow
    Thought of linen and of lace
    I never really saw his face
    I heard a grunt I heard a moan
    I felt the sun
    I saw the moon
    I saw the northern light above and the eclipse of the sun
    I am a breath I am a wish
    I am a rocket and a fish
    I felt his measures and his weight
    My own body as a scale
    I heard a whisper in my ear
    “You are not here. You are not here."
    I saw the northern light above and the eclipse of the sun
    My feet was hurt and heals were sore
    And I wondered why it burned
    And I wondered why it burned...

    Then I had to climb down
    I went down to see the sun rise
    And then I had to climb back up again
    I had to be there to see the sun rise
    All the air that you sent to guide me had a tone of elephant gray
    We were all there in the morning
    We were there and we wanted to stay
    We were there and we wanted to stay."

    Song - Rime Of The Ancient Mariner

    Vocals by the legendary Bruce Dickinson

    Hear the rime of the Ancient Mariner
    See his eye as he stops one of three
    Mesmerises one of the wedding guests
    Stay here and listen to the nightmares
    of the Sea

    And the music plays on, as the bride passes by
    Caught by his spell and
    the Mariner tells his tale.

    Driven south to the land of the snow and ice
    To a place where nobody's been
    Through the snow fog flies on the albatross
    Hailed in God's name,
    hoping good luck it brings.

    And the ship sails on, back to the North
    Through the fog and ice and
    the albatross follows on

    The mariner kills the bird of good omen
    His shipmates cry against what he's done
    But when the fog clears, they justify him
    And make themselves a part of the crime.

    Sailing on and on and North across the sea
    Sailing on and on and North 'till all is calm

    The albatross begins with its vengeance
    A terrible curse a thirst has begun
    His shipmates blame bad luck on the Mariner
    About his neck, the dead bird is hung.

    And the curse goes on and on and on at sea
    And the thirst goes on and on for them and me

    "Day after day, day after day,
    we stuck nor breath nor motion
    As idle as a painted ship upon a painted ocean
    Water, water everywhere and
    all the boards did shrink
    Water, water everywhere nor any drop to drink."


    There, calls the mariner
    there comes a ship over the line
    But how can she sail with no wind
    in her sails and no tide.

    See... onward she comes
    Onwards she nears, out of the sun
    See... she has no crew
    She has no life, wait but there's two

    Death and she Life in Death,
    they throw their dice for the crew
    She wins the Mariner and he belongs to her now.
    Then ... crew one by one
    They drop down dead, two hundred men
    She... She, Life in Death.
    She lets him live, her chosen one.

    "One after one by the star dogged moon,
    too quick for groan or sigh
    Each turned his face with a ghastly pang
    and cursed me with his eye
    Four times fifty living men
    (and I heard nor sigh nor groan),
    With heavy thump, a lifeless lump,
    they dropped down one by one."


    The curse it lives on in their eyes
    The Mariner he wished he'd die
    Along with the sea creatures
    But they lived on, so did he.

    And by the light of the moon
    He prays for their beauty not doom
    With heart he blesses them
    God's creatures all of them too.

    Then the spell starts to break
    The albatross falls from his neck
    Sinks down like lead into the Sea
    Then down in falls comes the rain.

    Hear the groans of the long dead seamen
    See them stir and they start to rise
    Bodies lifted by good spirits
    None of them speak
    and they're lifeless in their eyes

    And revenge is still sought, penance starts again
    Cast into a trance and the nightmare carries on.

    Now the curse is finally lifted
    And the Mariner sights his home
    Spirits go from the long dead bodies
    Form their own light and
    the Mariner's left alone

    And then a boat came sailing towards him
    It was a joy he could not believe
    The Pilot's boat, his son and the hermit
    Penance of life will fall onto Him.

    And the ship it sinks like lead into the sea
    And the hermit shrives the mariner of his sins

    The Mariner's bound to tell of his story
    To tell his tale wherever he goes
    To teach God's word by his own example
    That we must love all things that God made.

    And the wedding guest's a sad and wiser man
    And the tale goes on and on and on.
