      Guardians - Poem for a roleplay setting

      This is something I wrote as a setting for a roleplay I wanted to create, which is based on a world I created for one of my (attempts at) novels. It is meant to be a (slightly creepy) nursery rhyme that gives an inkling for what the Guardians are like. What do you think? I don't usually write rhyming poetry, so this was both challenging and fun, but also excruciating to write, and I can't decide if I am happy with it or not.


      Children, heed ye this warning song!

      Have you ever looked into a lake
      to find it acting as if awake
      Did the forest follow your every turn
      although how, you could not discern

      Those have been the Guardians’ eyes
      for all they govern act as their spies

      Unseen they walk and unknown they stay

      but there is a Guardian for every strand of hay,
      
every drop of water, every forest tree

      every deer and badger, bear and bee


      Upset them not, or what ye shall find

      is that a Guardian's nature can be unkind
      For there is but one rule in their creed;
      to punish those that act out of greed

      So never take more than what you require
      keep true the difference of need and desire;
      You may gather and hunt so that you can live -
      but any excess the Guardians do not forgive

      For ye are not the Masters of this land
      or Ladies of the forest lush and grand;
      you dwell here but at the Guardians’ grace
      so be wise and always respect their ways

      So remember to ever be aware
      when you walk in nature, everywhere
      the sapphire eyes and gazes of gold
      that are not bothered by heat nor cold

      in those eyes, you are measured and weighed

      and bad children ought to be afraid.

      Thank your Jouro <3

      Carue: I think Noirres a bit of a legend
      Noirre (Mod): In what way, pray tell?
      Carue: well you're a rather good writer, pleasant, friendly and good looking
      Noirre (Mod): <3 you silver-tongued devil
      Shadicara: Silver? Carue can I have your tongue?
      Carue: if you like
      Carue: its licked Noirre's bum just now
      Carue: but you can have it

      Re: Guardians - Poem for a roleplay setting

      This poem was really fun to read, and I imagined it as a medieval troubadour playing a song :3 I think you should be proud! It definitely has good roleplay potential, for I can imagine many a thief or crook, or even chaotic neutral wish to escape the strict ruling of the guardians.

      Re: Guardians - Poem for a roleplay setting

      I really love this poem, would make an amazing RP but as a poem its just so mysterious and I feel like children would just love to hear it over and over and over again!

      I'm glad it reminds you of a troubadour, I wanted to go for something like that. A story-poem where the last lines are delivered with a creepy whisper. I still have some work to do for the roleplay setting, I need to write some stuff down properly. I hope it'll be a world people enjoy playing in. c:
