This is the other one "Rudiments"

RUDIMENTS
-Rimesorrow
As if a searing bolt scorches the sun,
Promises made cannot be undone.
When one's days pass in gloom,
Darker shades all rise and loom.
The Wanderer travels without a soul,
To consume beings and their all as a whole.
He goes about alone in solace.
Moving anywhere in time and space.

Those he burns live a blood-curdling dream.
Bow down before him, for he reigns supreme.
Wherever he points, people cower in dread.
For they know that shall soon be dead.
Their souls shall be rent, before they do know.
Their very essence will leave them and go.
Only one who is truly sublime
Can salvage them before it is their time.

And there, on the hill alone he stands.
Having conquered waters and sands.
Unfazed he looks into the fiend's eyes.
They both collide as they utter war-cries.
This battle will ensue over hill and dale.
Through woods, through glades, through storm and hail.
Even though the Scourge generates in blight.
I believe we shall be redeemed from this plight.

Could these poems be used in a game, by any chance:
1) Oblivion [inspired by "Ex Oblivione" by H.P. Lovecraft]

Real life is too dreadful to live peacefully.
I like to dream in silentime; I live in dreams only.
I once beheld in my dreams, a gate loom in sight.
Beyond it stood contrasting scapes,
Some dark and some light.
In the dark, I saw terror, horror and fear untold.
The sky was perverted in a shade of green and gold.
Then I looked to the other side: I saw nothing but bliss.
I tried to force my eyes away,
but it was too tempting to miss.
I felt the gate drawing me
And as I nearned my goal,
I saw inscriptions on the gate,
Which made my mind roll.
Some inscriptions on the gate said,
"Beyond lie blissful dreams."
Others said, "Do not cross!
For ahead lie pain and screams."
My reason was being put to the test.
I knew not what to do.
Little did I know that time,
What my mind could construe.

I made my mind to go beyond.
To see just what was there.
I pushed open the gate and strode...
To look in shock and stare.

For there is naught but nothing beyond the gate.
Nothing to love and nothing to hate.
What I find is not solace,
It is not solitude.
The only thing I see here
Is oblivion absolute.
I now realised what the blissful inscriptions
On the gate had meant.
The peace and the solitude from the pain of life
Would seem God-sent.
But then I knew the other messages,
What they had meant when they said,
"Go not beyond! For there only lie-
Fear and Horror, Terror and Dread."

I knew by then that here I'd be;
Here I'd be till the end.
To walk the void bereft of senses,
I thought I was condemned.

I feel I am now
At the threshold of Madness,
Without pain or bliss,
Euphoria or sadness.
I thought then of a strange supposition.
The real world had gone. I now dwell in oblivion.

No one selected CoF? OK. But no vote for Judas Priest?! :-0

BTW, I get the most satisfaction on Hell's Arena listening to Battery or One. It suits the level. Quick, fast, raw, bloody. >;-)
Anyway, keep the votes coming in. We could compile an alternate list of music for DooM RL.

Another BTW, anyone seen or heard Mastertarium? It's awesome. If not heard, search on Youtube. It's good, if not great. The second transition is almost seamless...

Must have missed it. (Blasphemy! How can you miss an alien-shooting, beer-guzzler with one-liners? )

How about George Bush RL? Though his antics may furnish the case for a new comic series. ;)
Anyway. I think a Mummy RL would be quite interesting. How about tying it up with a Cthulhu RL by way of Nyarlathotep, the crawling chaos. I mean NT was a pharoah in one of his forms, right?

My sentiments in these two posts. Yes, I like shotguns - more gibs, decent damage. Also, using IM from the start has taken me to lvl 12 and above 10k pts on 6 occasions. This is what I usually do: IM -> IM -> IM -> then some other trait. I know, it is defensive, but when I tried any other traits to start off, I got wasted before 4k pts. That is what prompts me to stick to Ironman.

Hmm... Nice idea. Maybe a possible feature of the future?

I thank you. Ideas appreciated. Say, could another trait be unlocked after getting IM(2)? (in some future version?) And what should it be?

« on: October 11, 2007, 07:16 »
After reading some posts, I experimented a lot with various traits (IM, TaN, EE, SoaG  mainly) and I found that Ironman got me the farthest - lvl 12, 21370 pts. I used IM(3) and SoaG(2).  The next bests, above 10k pts, also had IM(3). Can anyone help clarify this? Is the bonus to HP slightly more beneficial than other traits?
