Etherus’ Delight

(Categorization: Poems and Songs / Miscellaneous Poems)



This may be a poem; it may be a receipt; or it may be an incantation. Most likely, it is all of these things. The verses were written on a parchment that had been left stuck between the pages of a book in the library of Lorehold. An unsuspecting researcher happened to open the book at the right page, and out sailed the parchment, like a letter from a faerie, or from someone long since dead.

We warn the reader that the compendium’s editors have changed some of the ingredients mentioned in the verses, therewith preventing the wicked and the misguided from concocting “Etherus’ Delight”.



A kuatu’s spit is what you need,
And three big spoons of nightshade seed.
Add vilerat blood, and brew the mead
To make your loved one want you.

The boardrak’s tusk will melt his eyes,
The lýth’béls make his juices rise;
Stir in six hearts of dragonflies,
To make your loved one want you.

Boil it for three days and nights!
From the top the slime you scoop!
Watch how blood with moonlight fights
In your lush and wanton soup!

Don’t let it cool – but make him swallow.
First lure his tongue – his soul will follow.
Take heart and gut and hair and skin,
It won’t be long ‘til you can sing:

He’ll quiver, he’ll shiver,
This brew will deliver
His obstinate heart into my gentle fist!
He’ll drool like a fool,
When he’s been through my school:
He’ll kneel and he’ll squeal and he’ll beg for my kiss!

Kaa-baa-yaa-ssaa-rrakk. Rshee!

A little chill just went down my spine; I can see the gloating eyes and clenched fists of the one who stirs the cauldron, as she mutters the last verse again to herself...

Thanks, Judy!

This poem is a sneak preview of Nepris II in Santhworld, actually - so prepare to have your spine chilled properly once that's ready!

Another great one, and it will fit nicely in the game as well! I also like the note which reminds us that for the safety of the reader the ingredients were changed... *hehe* One never knows what could actually result if someone makes the perfect brew - we can't let that happen!  grin

The song also has a nice flow to it, very effective rhymes and is just damn good, Shab! Wonderful!

Shaba, what did you say only a week ago?

That's not better!  Big Grin

And I wonder how you come to know such things...  rolling

Huh? This is my contribution to the rehabilitation of Etherus! I do pity the vilerats and the dragonflies, but otherwise I don't see what's there to complain about.  cool
