Do you want to win cool prizes? Write an song about Alyria set to the tune of an existing song and you could win!
If you sing the song yourself and upload it you could win a better prize.

Examples:

To the tune of do you want to build a snowman
https://soundcloud.c...lete-boss-kills

To the tune of call me maybe:

I killed Floyd in the keep
webbed him then cast sleep
he pktalked it was cheap
and now he's emo quit

Minus told him to suck it
didn't like it one bit
threw a paddy fit
now he's emo quit.

Floyds going crazy
acting like a baby
waa waa quittin maybe
postin moanin on the forum.

Hey, do some boss kills
kill the pit beast
I know abacax
just don't go east

Was killin manticore
In a form more than four
bolted, corpse hit the floor
Now I'm cpked

Alliance standing root
tooth game down to loot
why couldn't they just keep mute
now I'm cpked

Cost me 300 ru
my eq was brand new
shitty clan 52
Xbox one don't care

Hey I'm Gunbladee
Think I'm a boss
killed at manti
now I'm at a loss

Every good entry will get something.

To the tune of Neil Young's "Heart of Gold":

I want to kill,
I want the thrill,
I trade the hunter for a pouch of gold.
It's the obsession,
Of severed limbs,
That keeps me hunting for a frog so cold.

And I'm getting gold.
Keep me hunting for a frog so cold...
And I'm getting gold.

I came from Lasler,
I went to Rune,
I slaughter frogs for a pouch of gold.
I've lost all my mind,
At the command line,
Yet I keep on hunting for a frog so cold.

And I'm getting gold.
Keeps me hunting for a frog so cold...
And I'm getting gold.

Keep me hunting for a frog so cold.
He keeps me hunting and I'm getting gold.
Keep me hunting for a frog so cold.
I trade the hunter for a pouch of gold.

End of competition. Katran wins. Period. Gunbladee and Floyd get honorable mention. Perem has second place by default.

All of us should receive nice things. Alyce, open up dem dur trunks baby!

Omnis, Katran just earned honorary archon and legendary status. This better be in before the next reboot. Else I will make a song that no one likes. Mwuahahahaha

'Nuff said.

To the tune of DIO's "Rainbow in the Dark":

When I cast lightning,
You know it doesn't make a sound...
Cause it's text, not a hex,
You're perplexed,
as your body hits the ground.

You cry out to Mordrid,
You see him floating in the air,
Drink the vial, and for a while,
You'll be lost without a care.

There's no sign of the respawn approaching,
Routinely sent to the Void,
Like the Merdraco...
Like the Merdraco to a dock!

Will the Powers...
Will they grant you one more try?
But you're weak, and you're meek,
Can't compete,
You're class level's twenty five.

You're just a noobie,
And you exist only to fall...
I confess, you'd die less,
If you learned to 'equip all'.

No sign of the respawn approaching,
You sigh in dismay,
Routinely sent to the Void,
Like the Merdraco...
Like the Merdraco to a dock!

This is actually really cute! I wouldn't have really read through it but Kayuki linked me the original (which since I live under a rock I'd never heard before). You should sing it!! :D

I'm not especially good at this sort of thing but here we go.

Oh.My.Gath. Katran, look at her trunks.
She looks like one of those PK-er guys girlfriends.
But you know, who understands those PKer guys?
They only talk to her because she runs around like a total fullgear.
I mean her trunks are so big.
They're just so ebony and out there.
They're just so...black.

I LIKE BIG TRUNKS AND I CANNOT LIE.
YOU OTHER BROTHER CAN'T DENY...
WHEN A GIRL WALKS IN WITH A 4-COUNT TRUNK AND A TANBLUCK ON HER WAIST
YOU GET SPRUNG!

OK, last one for me... :whistle:

To the tune of R.E.M.'s "It's The End Of The World As We Know It (And I Feel Fine)":

It's late, I can't sleep-- wide awake,
Twinkie cakes, an Excedrin, and a ice cold orange Gatorade.

Eye of the storm cast telekinetic slash,
Bag lady, mangy dog, maniacally depress-ed frog,
Merdraco is at the dock, Sigil, Rune, too soon,
The network starts to lag with a rush of one, zero, one,
Breathing forth a cone of fire, reconnect, resume the game,
Band together, quest forever, (or at least all night),
Left her, wasn't forming a group with a noobie sponging off our pack,

Screen by screen, NPCs battered, beaten, bloodied, dropped,
Avros, Sepharia, Auryn, Beltane,
Uh-oh, Speghetti-O's, or microwave some ramen soup,
Battle on, but save yourself, preserve your health,
Flee to north then go to sleep, 'drink; drink' if you're thirsty,
Tellerium, Pirate's Cove and nothing really there to prove, right?
PK zone is chaotic, grind all night, Bud Light,
Still feeling pretty psyched...

Is there no end to this world as we know it?
Is there no end to this world as we know it?
Will there be an end to this world as we know it, Ingenii?

Six A.M., zero hour, sacrifice it to the Powers,
Slash and burn, hit [return], listen to your stomach churn,
Locker rental, lottery, too much coffee, gotta pee,
Every command aliased, automatic triggers, Wheee!!
Light a feather, light a lantern, climb up, climb down,
Watch your health, bash, lash, death blow,
Barbarian, cavalier, leather skin, training spear,
A tourmaline, a tourmaline, a tourmaline, you die,
Mordrid floats amidst the Void to help you bide your time...

Is there an end to this world as we know it? (I had some time alone...)
Is there an end to this world as we know it? (I had some time alone...)
Will there be an end to this world as we know it, Ingenii? (It's time I had a shower...)
Ingenii? (I feel tired...)

Is there an end to this world as we know it? (It's time I had some time alone...)
Is there an end to this world as we know it? (It's time I had some time alone...)
Will there be an end to this world as we know it, Ingenii? (It's time for work in half an hour...)

We all like morrissey right?




Sidhe blood, Alyrian heart, this I'm made of
There is no player I'm afraid of
and no abjure can get rid of me

I've been dreaming of a time when
queen tirona is at peace with Sandoval
Sidhe and feys standing together not feeling shameful, racist or partial

Sidhe blood, Alyrian heart, this I'm made of
There is no immortal I'm afraid of
and I will quest with my head held high

I've been dreaming of a time when
The Alyrians live in peace with fairys
and Agrippa, and spit upon the name of Duende
and denounce this administration that support him
and will support him forever

This game is dying.
Everyone on the forum a crying.
Duende came back; keeps on trying.
Omnis here... keeps lying.

Woah, where be we
Can't we see...
Ooh... he got the best of me...

Donation dollars
Poppin collars
Still nobody hollars

Perem building hope
That the game will float
This is a short rope
Kayde cut the throat

Blood is running thin
Everyone sees within
The lies keep coming in
Nobody will ever win

Rarcyn got busted
Trust me
He was a cheatin
Keep on beatin
Though he was trusted
He aint nuthin

This world is down
To the flames and dregs
Bottom of the kegs
Nobody left
Hope floats

Keep sailin'
On those lies in the skies.
Alyce keeps thanking
Everyone who pays in
Then turns around...
To break their hope.
Isn't this song dope
Doper than his fat sack
Redolent fumes
Horrid tunes

Game over man game over
If you didn't notice...
We just got our arses handed to us.

A blues song

In the years I have seen
Woah, the places I've been
Told what to want
What I can't

Wishing a world for some RU
Couldn't buy a thing Boohoo
The immortals want to keep me down
So tired of that sigil town

Oh I'm getting old
Woah it's getting old
My bones are growing cold
This realm is growing cold

Watched the years go by
Never even heard them cry
Wooohooo....
A booohooo...

Payed for a world in RU
Gave for a world in RU
Them immortals keeping me down
Never been a fan of the Rigel town

I had a pocket that jangled
Wore a few things that dangled
Never been a friend of mine
Gonna have to be a death fine

Woah my bones are getting old
Woah this game has gotten old
Now my bed has grown cold
How her grave is deathly cold

Hoping for all that time back
Dreaming for all my dollars back
The changes that never stack
This game has always been wack.

The envy was a bond
Between the hopeful and damned
In a quickness
It all crumbles like sand.

To the tune of "I Dreamed a Dream" from Les Mis:


There was a time when guides were toggled / When their tells were prompt and their words were helpful
There was a time when newbs were boggled / But they used their brains and they had potential
There was a time / Then it all went wrong


I dreamed a dream in time gone by / When Rune was teeming full of newbies
I dreamed admin would never lie / Used to get zots for yelling "boobies"

Then I was still in secondary school / Questing until 2 in the morning
Watching Zakainen break the rules / And get a freeze or just a warning


But the MUDStats tell the truth / Game is getting awful lonely
Gone the Vassago of our youth / Is it Duende we should bla-a-a-a-ame?

Alyce bought the game for tree-fiddy k / And gave immortals to his cronies
How can we get more folks to play? / In social you'll find half the game


And still I keep on logging in / But no one will join my formation
Is Alyce player or admin? / Does he profit from our donations?

I had a dream Alyria thrived / And I'd keep playing on forever
But I have no fucks left to give / Apathy killed the dream I dreamed


Edit: Gave up on some rhymes. :|

Edit: No audio for now. :|

:(

Floyd, stop crying. In the words of Minus: 'suck it'. Haha... just kidding. You blue person.

Katran has two good entries. I liked her never archon audio. The last one is good too.

Perem it has been 23 hours and change. Who won?! Zero hour is upon us.

OK, I predict Katran won... but still. More results!

Katran, I remember when I was a drow cavalier, being zotted while levelling in Sigil for being part of the "weeble" "deez nutz" yells. Then the whole place had yells disabled. Those days were fun. Your last song brought back those memories and some.

Before results are posted, thank you to all the participants. Really enjoyed this forum fun.

Without further ado - Katran wins!!!! Oh... eh... maybe a little early. *blush*
