AN ORIGINAL SANTHARIAN SONG
In the far west of Manthria, a few strals outside the city walls of Ravenport, lies Shneerin, a farming community essential to the grain production of the surrounding area and beyond. The only building not completely made of wood - it's even partly constructed out of Griffin's Marble - is the Broken Wing, townhall, tavern and general gathering place.

In the evening, farmers from the nearby fields gather in the common room. If they're lucky, among the passing travelers are a few bards willing to perform, but more often than not a few of the local lads will grab their home-made instruments. Simple flutes, a crude harp and some sort of drum or other percussion instrument will usually complete the set. Listen how they begin an elegant dance, passing the melody from one flutist to another, finally culminating in a rhythmic quick form, with the crowd demanding an extra round at the end, speeding up the musicians with their clapping.

AN ORIGINAL SANTHARIAN SONG
At the end of the day, the Pig-and-Whistle is the tavern to be. Like every pub you've ever wanted to live in, it's the place where everybody knows your name, the fire is always roaring and the ale is always frothing. Yup, the benches and tables are made of heavy scarred wood, with generations of students and artists' carvings dug into them, and the big iron sconces hold the requisite dripping candles. There is a bountifully buxom barmaid, and the innkeep is a sturdy fellow with sharp but kindly eyes. Judith of Bardavos got her start here; neither she nor the tavern will ever forget that, so she is a regular performer on the Pig's stage, when she is in town. Today she sings the song "Santharian Ale" for you! Return to the top

AN ORIGINAL SANTHARIAN SONG
This particular song, ‘We heard what she said (but we knew what she meant)’ is one of those drinking songs which has been turned, as so many of them are, into a game which invariably leads to the players drinking themselves into unconsciousness. As is usual, each player takes a turn in singing a verse, and is penalised for forgetting or repeating a verse, usually by having to slug his drink in one, or take a drink from whatever concoction is placed before him. After each verse, the group give a hearty rendition of the chorus before the game moves on to the next player. The last player to pass out is deemed the winner.

As is common with these songs, dozens of new verses have been created and added over the years, until it becomes almost impossible to learn the whole song by heart. What I present to you here are the verses most commonly encountered, along with a smattering of newer lyrics which earned their inclusion by the fact of their very suggestiveness. Perhaps readers could be encouraged and inspired to create new verses of their own? Return to the top
