Bard Songs


Guest Grim

Recommended Posts

I'm new to G3, but I love your ideas. I just had an idea myself - should Delainey, being seperated from society and therefore the popular tunes of the time, have her own unique self-written bard songs? Songs that reflect her condition or her surroundings?

Delainy and friends decide to camp on a hill as the sun is setting. A full moon is rising and they share a meal and drinks. Delainy gets caught up in the revelry and breaks out in a comical song... (sung to the rhythm of Weird Al's White and Nerdy)

 

They see me dancing under a full moon

I know they're all thinking I'm so wild and sexy

 

Think I'm just too wild and sexy

Think I'm just too wild and sexy

Can't you see I'm wild and sexy

Look at me I'm wild and sexy

 

I wanna roam with the nobles

But so far they all think I'm too wild and sexy

 

Think I'm just too wild and sexy

Think I'm just too wild and sexy

I'm just too wild and sexy

Really, really wild and sexy

 

Leaving Balduran Isle by sea

Thought nice, I'm a werewolf in BG

Charname, that's my favorite PC

He opens my eyes so I can see

My licks never infect, to the contrary

You'll find that they're quite sanitary

All of my songs are quite literary

Someday they'll be in a great library

 

Our party is completely decked out

We represent a few different races

I can smell you from a thousand paces

I'm no-frills but I do wear laces

I really enjoy an audience that stays

Once you see my performance, you'll be quite amazed

I dance so fast I set the floor ablaze

 

There's no creature from which I've run

As a werewolf, I'm number one

I chase Charname just for fun

Through the trees and under the sun

Late at night I'll sing him a song

After which he carries me along

We'll defeat any champion you bring on

We're fluent in Dwarvish as well as Common

 

They see me stroll on my long legs

I know in my heart they think I'm wild and sexy

 

Think I'm just too wild and sexy

Think I'm just too wild and sexy

Can't you see I'm wild and sexy

Look at me I'm wild and sexy

 

I'd like to roam with the nobles

Although it's apparent I'm too wild and sexy

 

Think I'm just too wild and sexy

Think I'm just too wild and sexy

I'm just too wild and sexy

How'd I get so wild and sexy

 

I've been examining, identifying magical items

You know we collect them

The gems in my bag, I must protect them

My Bhaalspawn lord never leaves me bored

We shop for scrolls and other media

I once read a book called an encyclopedia

Charname memorizes riddles really well

Aerie makes him recite them under a Charm spell

 

I got a part time job as a dancer

When taverns need songs, I'm the one they call

I do different things for them all

Even juggled swords once for Hendak

I store my scrolls in a magic sack

There was a sale at the Adventure Mart

Charname thinks I'm really smart

Quote this, quote that - hope he doesn't think me stuffy

 

I'm sexy in the extreme

I'm wilder than a gibberling's scream

I was in the Elfsong and Red Sheaf

And even the Burning Wizard

A question I asked for quite a while

"Do I follow Charname or stay on this isle?"

Spend every weekend at Waukeen's Promenade

Viconia thinks me a trifle odd

 

They see me posing, they're gasping

And covering their eyes because I'm so wild and sexy

 

Just because I'm wild and sexy

Just because I'm wild and sexy

All because I'm wild and sexy

Holy cow, I'm wild and sexy

 

I wanna dance for the nobles

But oh well, it's obvious I'm wild and sexy

 

Think I'm just too wild and sexy

Think I'm just too wild and sexy

I'm just too wild and sexy

Look at me I'm wild and sexy

After a stunned silence, everyone applauds, and the party goes on into the night.

 

 

Hope you like it. I'm drugged up to get rid of a bad cold and a headache, but that didnt stop me from trying my hand at a funny song for Delainy. I could see her singing this maybe after a few drinks and silliness sets in. Oh, and I know Delainy isn't conceited.

Thanks, KIrving. :)

 

Still sick as a dog; it's a shame I can't find such inspiration when I'm well. Here's another one, a bit darker and more melancholy, based on Sleeping Sun by Nightwish.

 

Delainy and Charname have gone to bed and the campfire is low. Charname is already asleep and Delainy is looking at him with tears in her eyes. In the distance, the moon is reflecting off the Sea of Swords. Delainy begins to sing in a soft voice...

The son is sleeping quietly

Resting upon my bed of leaves

Ancient dreams within his head

Crimson rivers of blood and death

His dark urges I'll help him fight

For wishes of a peaceful life

In truth, we're running out of time

Bhaal's evil taint, so sublime

 

I wish for this nighttime to last for a lifetime

His arms around me on the shores of Sword Sea

Oh how I wish to go down with the sun

Sleeping

Weeping

With You

 

This evil taint has no heart

From my love it must depart

I'll sing to him a thousand songs

Never daring to let go

Two-hundred twenty-two hours of life

Before my love dies to the strife

All his humanity falls away

Until there's no one left to slay

 

I wish for this nighttime to last for a lifetime

His arms around me on the shores of Sword Sea

Oh how I wish to go down with the sun

Sleeping

Weeping

With You

Nice reworking of Sleeping Sun there Smoketest.

 

 

We'll defeat any champion you bring on

We're fluent in Dwarvish as well as Common

Dwarvish ballads, the Barry White of Faerun?

 

 

Cold drugs are good for lots of things, apparently. :)

Thanks for the compliments. Just my way of showing that I haven't given up on this mod, and maybe I can restore some of Bri's inspiration with a bit of my own. I know she can write volumes when she's in the groove, and I'm looking forward to playing this mod.
