      Technology or religion, the choice is mine,
      I will not follow Maelrawn, an evil divine.
      He is coming, not for peace, but for blight,
      And here you are, going down without a fight?

      You call Science a fraud, a bold claim in itself,
      Yet you insist on revering the evil himself?
      The destroyer of the Claddish fleet,
      Giving them not a chance for retreat.

      So I defy your master, the abyssal God,
      For he brings only destruction, the evil sod!
      I will not beg and I will not repent,
      I will not even consider to lament!

      We will fight the sea, with tooth and nail,
      Till our dikes and dams dwarf even a whale.
      Science and thought, for far too long ignored,
      Shall defend the lands, do not rely on the sword.

      The chosen of Maelrawn, the holy priest?
      The insanity is high, we know that atleast.
      Think this through, I ask from you,
      Surely you can see the evil from the blue?

      In this war of religion versus science,
      It is dependance versus self reliance!
      I have the intelligence to carve my path,
      Even if it invokes a god's wrath!

      However, before I leave, I will ask this too:
      Lamar? Is that you?
      To keep these forums clean and friendly, please read and follow the forum rules.
      Before making a new thread, be sure to have used search, as well as checking the stickies of the appropriate section.

        You speak of battles, you speak of attack,
        May I remind you of the Demons of the Cataract?
        Kunkka's fleet attempted to resist,
        The people of the Trembling Isle we will not miss.

        Is this the end that you seek?
        Has the Violet Plateu Incident left your mind weak?
        The only way to survive is to submit to his reach,
        Else you find yourself washed up on a beach.

        There need not be blight, there is hope for respite,
        Long the deep has seen peace, removed from the light.
        It is the surface and land that one must fear,
        For war rages and it is money people hold dear!

        All driven by greed, your science and thought,
        Your loyalties lie with those who bought!
        Unless you give up this farce, your soul I cannot save,
        Sadly I will hang a coral wreath on your grave.

        Before Lamar was once my name,
        A simple crustacean desiring heads to maim.
        I lived in your workshop, watched your science unfold,
        Which was used to carve out my beak while I was not a year old!

        Then I saw a chance, and made my escape,
        And found Maelrawn waiting, all for my sake!
        Look at me now, a hunter of tides!
        A kraken of which the Abyssal God confides!

        He desires only peace but to do so,
        We must join in worship to rid our woe.
        United we will be under the tentacles of he,
        A better world awaits, why can you not see?

        Follow the spirals down into Maelrawn's warm, loving, forgiving embrace,
        We await you here, just give up tinkering and the science you chase…

          This prattle doth bore me, this tantrum of mortals.
          "Victory" here; the thought deserves chortles.
          For naught save my mind contains what you seek:
          Power unknowable to you, the weak.

          Your dubious deity? No more than a flea to me.
          Your inane inventions don't deserve my attention.

          Fight if you must, it's of no consequence.
          But make no mistake, you petty peasants:
          Your lives, if on their ends I was intent,
          Would end as soon as my finger was bent.

          Ah, science and religion find common ground:
          The name of Garral; both fear the sound.

            Pitiful mortals, embrace the reality,
            For only Atropos holds immortality!
            Nightmares will be wrought upon you -
            All will worship the one god true!

            The dreams of scientists will crumble,
            All shall bow down or tremble!
            And Maelrawn, that fool
            Can't you realize you're just it's tool?
            That god is a lie, surely you must understand,
            It'll kill you right where you stand!
            War is the only thing the sea god wants,
            Atropos listened for ages to it's taunts!

            But not all is lost, Bane is the way
            Join us here, and leave Maelrawn's sway.
            Come to us and you will live
            Leave the sea god, and Atropos will forgive.

            While all the tinkers, you must repent!
            You must give up your foul intent!


            Garral is a fool - a wretch, a thief and a whelp!
            Atropos is everything and soon Garral will plead for help!

            AHAHAHAHAHAHA *Maniacal laugh*

              Aye, look, who's the topic starter
              My old abyssal partner
              The scurvy rat that is called Tidehunter
              Trying to set his boombomb

              Way-hay, well don't you raise it
              Way-hay, sink down and pace it
              Way-hay, not in the presence

              Of Admiral Kunkka.

              So-so, you may think you're skipper
              So-so, have you deep-pit see ya
              So-so, we are not at sea now

              You're not worth a coxswain.

              Way-hay, stole my anchor
              Way-hay, well nothing changed
              Way-hay, the tide is raging

              Not yours, but Tidebringer's.

              Call for your tentacle landlub
              See how I deal with this sandcrab
              Last time was just plain thin armor
              Now you're out of harbor

              So-so, spit it with bilgewater
              So-so, that is not a problem
              So-so, I've got the right rudder

              It's not even storming.

              Way-hay, have them banter
              Way-hay, see you later
              Way-hay, just remember

              See you there, at Dota.

              I have long crossed myself with intention
              To part you from an extension
              That is the old good anchor
              Soaked in your bilgebloo-ter.

              And I'll make sure that you will be prawned
              No matter which god claims you owned
              If you call him and he goes and answers
              He'll belay existance!

              Way-hay, there she blows and
              Way-hay, you're all washed up and
              Way-hay, not so safe harbor

              Yo-ho-ho, with booty!
              Heroes this user should seriously reconsider ever picking again.

                Accused in the past of designs that are tricky,
                You'll be glad of my powers when I make this thread sticky.

                  I never thought I'd see the day,
                  When all was rhyme
                  In this beta time,
                  But here I see you found the way.

                    A fool the one who claimed divinity of dreams,
                    Manipulations of nightmares, merely schemes.
                    Your scripture is what needs to evolve,
                    If you cannot capture your "God's" resolve.

                    For ignorant are you to claim Atropos as god,
                    A fool, a heretic, you are nothing but a fraud!
                    For all have heard of Nyctasha's blight,
                    The way she attacks dreams in the night.

                    Her power is barely larger than a mote,
                    Once day breaks and all wake, she is but a footnote.
                    Maelrawn gives reason to flee I say,
                    By night or day, you will not get away.

                    Therein lies the weakness of sleep,
                    When waking can save you from the torments you reap.
                    The spirals can claim you in dreams or awake,
                    So join with the tentacles for your children's sake.

                    No God can save you, be it nature, kings, or flayed,
                    If you believe their lies, you have all been played.

                        Atropos a god?
                        That's simply a fraud!

                        The violet plateau?
                        Black Mesa times-two!

                        We should worship tidebringer?
                        What a blind praise singer!

                        The combination of knowledge and magic isn't Garral!
                        Unless of course you're refering to the infamous, Carl.

                          And by the way Kunkka is bad.
                          Oh and in B 4: you're just mad.

                            The world will now collapse!:

                            Maelrawn is nothing! - you can't deny it
                            Not a lord, nor a god, not even a bit!
                            The sea can't reach out in the land -
                            All you do is splash water over the sand.
                            Nightmares are twisted and dark fears,
                            Curses upon you! May your nightmares last years!

                            Atropos already killed a divine,
                            And Maelrawn it shall tear from inside!
                            The beast will fall, and so will you
                            All the priests of that fraud will perish too.

                            In midsts of chaos, us knights will rise
                            To bring apocalypse before sunrise!
                            The horsemen will reign again once more
                            Atropos will guide and power us four!

                            The blood of your god will be spilled
                            The sea will turn black with the beast killed!
                            Then the four of us will ride the skies
                            And bring you to your pathetic demise!

                            Now go back home and have a sleep
                            For you shall not wake, in nightmares deep.
                            Everyone has the inexorable weakness of dreams
                            And in the nightmares all Atropos hears is screams!
                            You will fall asleep eventually
                            And once you do you will sleep for eternity!

                              A fool and his folly, that is all you are!
                              To think that Atropos's reach is far!
                              You fail to grasp the length of the tentacles,
                              Nothing can save you, not even dream's miracles!

                              A demon of the night you claim to be,
                              But fail to realize Night Stalker is he.
                              Who do you think created the first night?
                              It was the dark of the deep that spilled and blocked out the light!

                              Let your horsemen run as fast as they can,
                              You fail to realize you are fighting no man.
                              Maelrawn created first land when he cracked the shell,
                              Of the planet and the first whirlpool did swell,

                              Draining away the oceans of long ago,
                              Maelrawn now resides where none venture so.
                              He sits as the lurker in the whirlpool,
                              For moving would sink landmasses, it is true.

                              The Abyssal God was kind enough to give those of land life,
                              It is only just that he ends it without strife.
                              To take arms against him is foolish indeed,
                              Nothing will save you, not even a knight's steed.

                              You cannot hope to attack him in dreams,
                              For his mind is ancient with wisdom and sheens!
                              His inscrutable thoughts cannot be brought down with might,
                              So retreat to your home amongst those in the night.

                              Atropos, but a fragment of a true God,
                              Nothing more than some hopeless fraud.
                              Absence of evidence is not evidence of absence.

                                Beg no Maelwarn's mercy on you, mortal
                                Bend your knees at my Abysmal's portal
                                Fiercely shall my power rend
                                Your petty whirlpool that "has no end"

                                Tremble! Your souls are in my gaze
                                Crumble! Your lives under my Shadowraze

                                Death will not be your finale
                                Souls will be tormented at my Necromastery
                                What you so piously worship as the deity
                                Hides underwater as his tentacula see me

                                Rise! You ludicrous water!
                                Fall! You puny little falter!
