Don't really know why, but with everyone writing seasonal FL songs, and with the sidebar showing me the songs of the L.B. first thing when I logged in, I felt it only appropriate to write The Song of the Seekers. There's a tune and everything, but until I manage to find a way to upload and share it, just now that it's meant to be slow and mournful - think eastern european dirge, or the kind of tune zailors sing when they're well down on their cups.


'round in a city, a hunger was broiling
Lights were a-flutter, candles aflame,
Out through my door, I stumbled, I tumbled,
Off to the darkness, to find out The Name

Shunned and reviled,
Cast out and broken,
Spat on, despised,
But still I maintain
For I never meant to go out a-Seeking,
Eaten and eating, the same old refrain

A Chain and a Stain, a Cat in my cradle,
favours called out, more favours still owed,
my life is devoured, my mind is in shambles,
but this a-reckoning will not be postponed

Seeing and dreaming,
In my mouth ashes,
The Surface, it calls me,
But here I remain,
For I've never meant to go out a-Seeking,
Seven and Seven, again and again

On now to the NORTH, to treason and hatred,
On now to fate ever-far worse than hell,
On now to find that which was forgotten,
Mayhaps I'll drown all my woes in a Well

A Torment is marked,
The last wick is burning
This journey's end
No man can now tell.
For I've always meant, to go out a-Seeking,
And all manner of things,
They shall be well

    Like a vision it comes to you. Lyrics, melody. A doleful expression of the maelstrom that your mind has become. You are inspired and fulfilled. This calls for another drink!

    It's then you notice that the tavern is sepulchral, all eyes warily on you. Were you... singing? Aloud? The barkeep gives you a baleful glance, and nods his head to the burly doorman. You pull yourself from the Stolen River a half hour later, bloodied but satisfied.

    Inspired... is increasing...
    Dangerous is dropping...
    Wounds is increasing...

    That was absolutely wonderful. Big Grin

    So... I just drew A Number of Candles again. Should I play it, and hope it lets me do 'yes, this is folly'?

    Well, I clicked it, and it said 'click yes, this is folly' to hasten the next step, but all I could do was Onwards. Also, more stat loss. Well, at least NiteBrite will be proud of me.

    Most all of those who participated in Ratmas got one. Or two.

    Ratmas?

    ...I wasn't aware this was an actual thing.

    It was, indeed. Twenty three hours of rats. Would have been twenty four, if not for the flagrant abuses of power wrought by Alexis. Really more like nineteen accounting for server outage. But whatever.

    Rats for the Rat God! Rats for the Rat Throne!

    Also, I'd like to say that my flagrant 'whoo why not' stat loss x2 combo earlier resulted in me getting Marsh-Mired dreams! Big Grin Very, very happy about this.

    You can now manufacture an Impossible Theorem at the University!
    It costs forty nine Searing Enigmas.

    It is also apparently available on expeditions, though we don't know what ones, or even if it's available on any of the current expeditions.


  • EDIT: Whoops, belay that, looks like I was looking at the searing enigma :P

    Hmm, at least i'll have something to spend my enigmas on if god's editors turn out not to be worth it. What is the progress on that front anyway?

    I have eighty enigmas, I'm just waiting until Friday because Candlecurious. I am fairly certain it'll turn out to be a hilarious possibly goldfish based prank, but you never know with that Alexis dude.

    The line in quotation marks wasn't there a few months ago, before the Cyriac option came along.

    St. Destin's Candle wrote:
    “I was hungry,” you say as you tear the page from the book, “and you gave me only the pelt of trees. I was thirsty, and you gave me only ink. I was mmff mff ff mm. Mmm hmm fm.” Your mouth is full of paper.[...]

    doublepostin' but a new thing has approached: "Give to the Church" on Restitution has another line added.
    "For they are hungry, and you have them no meat, they are thirsty, and you do not quench them."

    ...which suggests 25:42. even though in the Destin's option, it seems like you're about to go and say another thing but then you shove paper in your mouth. welp!

    there's a whole 7 passages between the two of those as well. hhh

    Wait, so does that support your theory, or do you think they're adding references to multiple verses as a deliberate misdirection?
