Christmas carol by Lexie

I'm dreaming of an idle Christmas
With every advents gift I get
While I log in multies
And try to gull these
Shopkeepers into giving me more jobs
I"m dreaming of an idle Christmas
Just like the ones I used to know
Where the bots cast spell ups
And groups of fellas
Would retrieve corpses in the snow
I'm dreaming of an idle Christmas
With every board post that I write
May your gifts be useful and bright
And may you idle both Christmas day and night 

Christmas carol by Athlonstore

In the Bleak Nightmare Plane
In the bleak nightmare plane,
Blood bears roamed around.
A fortress stood obsidian,
None could hear a sound.
Blood Ravens flew, they pecked and pecked,
pe-ecked a-and pecked
In the bleak nightmare plane,
Madness reigned unchecked.
    Then some players showed up,
At the fortress gate,
Sander the Barbarian
Asked them "could you waiit?"
A sneaky thief backstabbed him,
blood began to spill,
Sander's friends rescued him,
The fighters joined the kill.
Some mages casted fireball,
Warriors berserked,
The clerics casted breath of life,
The druids did their work.
They casted control weather
and made the weather hot
They solar lanced the giant
and the necros casted rot.
The bodies hit the ground with
Exaggerated thumps.
Those inside the fortress
were down in the dumps.
The players crashed into the gate
Splintering it whole!
Visiting the garrison,
They took a dreadful toll.
Tanis makal screamed for help, and
Lance ironhand fled.
Lady Patience sobbed in grief
She began to count the dead.
The Crimson dragon heard the fight
Her wings began to flap.
Soaring to the combat,
The players screamed "OH crap!"
She breathed a blast of fire
some skin began to burn.
The fighters got their lances
The tables began to turn.
They stabbed in desperation
At the dragon's heart.
She weakly tried to fight back
but she just wasn't smart.
Finally a lance point
penetrated her.
Dancing round in vict'ry
The players skinned her fur.
They sold it on the auction block
For twenty million gold,
And that is how the dragon
was slain in days of old!

The Little Warrior Boy by Colonel

Come, they told me, pah rum pum pum pum,

You'll take the hits for me, pah rum pum pum pum, rum pum pum pum, rum pum pum pum.
Then we'll heal for  you, pah rum pum pum pum, when you come.



Lyrics to Alter Aeon favorite things by Shryth:-

Helping the farmers and swallowing kittens
Killing some moles to get magical mittens
Pondering the horrors that Archais brings
These are a few of my favorite things
The dwarves' magic bracer, it's so legendary
I just read about it in the dreams' monastery
Sensei that load a nice breath saving ring
These are a few of my favorite things.
Dragon that slashes and midnight blue sashes
Quicklings that hide behind bushes and thatches
Silverwind freezing even though it is spring
These are a few of my favorite things
When I'm playing, Alter Aeon
Around Christmas Eve
I go to the north and to wastelands beyond
And set all the evils free
