Taking Back What’s Ours

Spoiler Warning: Spoilers for the Skull & Shackles adventure path are contained within this poem. If you don’t want your part of your campaign spoiled, don’t read this!

So, I’m making an effort to try and write one poem or song per story post. I think I’ll be able to manage, but I’m also trying to only release said poem or song after I’ve covered the events discussed in it, if any.


Taking Back What’s Ours

Two of our crew were stolen
Amidst a terrible storm
Two of our crew were taken from us
By the vile grindylow swarm

Below, below with the grindylow…
Below, they go, so far below
Let this not be a tale of woe
For the crew taken by the grindylow…

They used leaves of primal spellwork
To let our crewmen breathe the sea
Water embraced them in the murk
As they hurried away with glee

Below, below with the grindylow…
Below, they go, so far below
Let this not be a tale of woe
For the crew taken by the grindylow…

Most swiftly did we follow
To the caves of the isles near
And in their deepest hollow
Were our crewmen chained in fear

Below, below with the grindylow…
Below, they go, so far below
Let this not be a tale of woe
For the crew taken by the grindylow…

We took them while the tide was out
We fought them tooth and nail
And from their wounds their blood did spout
As we claimed our crewmen pale

Below, below with the grindylow…
Below, did they go, so far below
Perhaps this is a tale of woe
For no more do they live, the grindylow…
