Berr's Big Battle
During GemStone III's Hot Summer Nights in August, 1995, there were many events,
contests, parties, etc. One of the contests was Rolton Skinning. This song
is about a true happening during the rolton skinning contest. (I've left in
Oghie's actions as they were performed for us).
He woke up at dawn, a grim smile on his face
Today was the day, so he began to lace
On his plate armor, and grabbed his greatsword
And stalked out in the morning without a word.
A great crowd had gathered, in silence they stood
Outside the arena, the men thirsted for blood!
The ladies that knew him began to weep
For they knew, too, his foe - the mighty war-sheep
(Oghier flails his arms about dramatically)
A vicious old rolton, its claws sharp and hard
And fangs, if an inch long, then nearly a yard!
A red gleam in its eyes, a look full of bale
It glared and it bleated, and waggled its tail!
(Oghier bleats and waggles his tail)
All was quiet as death as ge stood fore the pen
Then, howling a war-cry, Berr Zercker lept in!
None could see the battle, or witness his feats
But all heard the clash, the howls, and the bleats!
(Oghier bleats again)
No heat of battle could Berr's courage melt
He'd defeat the rolton, and tear off its pelt!
How could the sheep stand against his battle lust?
But then, seconds later ** Berr just bit the dust!
(Oghier sighs loudly)
Shocked and in silence, they dragged out the corpse
Both arms missing, legs gone, his voice hoarse
Berr cried for a cleric "It wassa stampede!
"But get me back up an' swingin' - I gotta lotta more deeds!
(Oghier howls loudly)
