Once more I must ask you to cross post this as the messengers I have left have 
begun calling me many horrible names, and eying weapons, for sending them 
running time and again through miles of zombie infested land.

Dear Brothers and Sisters at Arms

Many people have inquired of me, asking for the story of how Hrafn came to be 
the Zombie-king, and then be put into the role of leader of the Devil's army.
But alas the story is long and heartbreaking and I could not stand to tell of 
his infection with the foul (spelled right) humors that caused his metamorphosis 
into a creature of evil.  My heart being too heavy to tell the tale, my dearest, 
most magnificent  wife suggested I hire a bard to do it for me, and allocated me 
funding for the project.  


So here is the result, with some artistic license taken.

The Devil Went Down to Gothic

The devil went down to Gothic 
he was lookin for soul to steal
he was in a bind 
cause he was way behind 
and he was willing to make a deal

when he came upon this young Yarl
working with a hammer and fightin hard
and the devil jumped up on hay bail
and said boy let me tell you what

I bet you didn't know it
but I'm a hammer fighter too
and if you care to take a dare I'll make a bet with you
now you swing a pretty mean hammer boy 
but give the devil his due
I'll bet a hammer of gold 
against your soul
cause I think I'm better than you

that Yarl said my names Hrafn 
and it might be a sin
but I'll take your bet
and your gonna regret
cause I'm the best there's ever been

chorus

Hrafn tighten up your gear and and swing your hammer hard
cause hells broke loose at Gothic and the devil leads the charge
if you win you get the shiny hammer made of gold
but if you lose the devil gets your soul

the devil pulled his hammer 
and said boy lets start this show
and fire flew from his nostrils as he limbered up to throw
Then he through a shot
and it made an evil hiss
and a fist of zombies joined in
cause the devil swung a miss

when the first pass finished
Hrafn said your pretty good old son
just tighten up your d right there 
or this fights already done

he said form a shield wall run boys run
the devils on the border of toward the rising sun
zombies in the west lands crown should know
hammer and anvil 
go boys go

the devil cocked his head 
because he knew he'd be beat
so he heaved that golden hammer 
toward the ground and Hrafn's feet. 
Hrafn said "devil that was low, and ya hit me right in the shin.
I'll yank your card you son of a b#$%h, cause only losers cheat to win".

and he screamed form a shield wall run boys run 
the devils on the border of toward the rising sun
zombies in the west lands crown should know
hammer and anvil 
go boys go.

 Thus was Noble Hrafns soul taken and the legions of the doomed unleashed.( well 
kinda anyway)

Yours in Service
