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!
