Oh, and Payne, I was 15 the first time I logged in here. I'm now 32.

So old.

Not to mention the time it takes to walk trough a city. Pretty sure you couldn't walk from one end from The watch to the other in 30 seconds.

Characters age at the speed of their story too. It isn't always perfect, I remember when Miggen had only aged like a couple years and met with a friend who went from ~30s to full blown "it's been 84 years..." old woman, so it was awkward navigating that RP but nothing that ruined my fun or character.

I started here in my 30's, I am approaching my 50's, I am reminded of time slipping away enough as it is.

I dont really want to have it in my make believe world.

Another reason I REALLY don't like anything beyond real-time.

If we followed in-game time, every NPC you like died long ago from old age, and any non-elves that are more than a year or two old are on their way to retirement.

Remember Them

How can an island be riddled with,
the wars and death that we see.
Statues of those who have died for all,
lives that were never meant to be.

Oh, do you remember them?
Those who once graced your company.
The heroes who often go nameless.
Are they lost in our own history…?

We know all the lore of the villain,
often down to every little part.
But the ones who died protecting us,
are often lost in translation from start.

There are the hero’s who all can remember,
the ones who’s life was a living good cause.
But some were soldiers, or peasants, or neighbors
..and some were innocent: taken without pause.

(Brief silence)

So, raise a glass and toast the departed.
Let us sing of them, speak of their tale!
Do not fail in our duty to remember,
may with us, their stories prevail!

(Instrumental)

Oh, do you remember them?
Those who once graced your company,
The heroes who often go nameless
are they lost in our own history…?

Criticism & Notes
-Soft ballad, instrumentals may vary.

Personal Hell

You want me to appease you:
With a song and story I’ll tell.
A story unlike any other you’ve heard!
A tale of personal hell.

My reputation as an artist had grown quickly
They’d heard of the daughter of Lau Mi Wen,
The girl who played like her father did--
She’d please the noble men and all of their kin.

And I did for many years, in fact..
Please the poor and the wealthy, all sorts.
I would play across the lands and sing!
My stories traded in taverns and noble courts.

You want me to appease you:
With a song and story I’ll tell.
A story unlike any other you’ve heard!
A tale of personal hell.

In a tavern is where I met him,
He was handsome; dark hair and brilliant green eyes.
An incubus in all of mortal creation,
His laugh enough to make any maiden’s heart rise.

He was a young girls first obsession
My muse was found in one single glance.
Five years of my life I gave to him
After accepting his offer to dance.

You want me to appease you:
With a song and story I’ll tell.
A story unlike any other you’ve heard!
A tale of personal hell.

My father never approved of him.
He told me I was too good for “that scum”.
But an artists obsession with a muse, you see
Overrides all sense and make you dumb.

His violent ways didn’t come the first year
Nor did it surface the second, or third, or fourth.
Five years it took him to secure all my heart.
Five years--it took him to take all I was worth.

You want me to appease you:
With a song and story I’ll tell.
A story unlike any other you’ve heard!
A tale of personal hell.

He proposed the twentieth day into winter
Not too long after my father had died.
Shortly after I accepted his offer-
I became a bruise he kept at his side

Now here is where it gets tricky,
You could call me both an idiot or fool
I married him, because I was empty.
I was a child, I knew not else what to do.

You want me to appease you:
With a song and story I’ll tell.
A story unlike any other you’ve heard!
A tale of personal hell.

I never had a chance to mend my heart
Before the dagger drove further into my spine.
He spread the rumor I was a harlot,
He rose to fame using music that was mine.

Reputation of a girl gone wrong, I earned.
My father’s legacy lost when I took his name.
No longer the one they applaud for anymore.
It took him five years to claim all my gain.

You wanted me to appease you:
With a song and story, you asked me to tell..
A story of all my secrets, I gave you..
Welcome to this storytellers' personal hell.


Criticism & Notes
-Inspiration awoke today--thanks to someone putting their hands on me. A man.
--I'd forgotten what fear felt like. I felt it then.
---When I played for her, she told me "that girl" could be a heroine. I wonder if that's true.
----Instrumental: Pair with a piano.
-----Oh, who am I kidding. I don't trust anyone to play this to...yet.
Private Piece.
