I tried really hard to kill Even tonight. I mean, really, REALLY hard. But it took a loooooong time.

Blame a shield with a chance to hjeal you if you're hit, good PRR and AC, and a little thing called Eternal Defender, which basically brings you back from the brink of death.

After spending a fair amount of time watching two dragons and their many minions attempt - unsuccessfully - to kill Even even when she stopped hjealing herself and took off her armor and shield, I got the bright idea to start a video capture. And then I got the even brighter idea to write a parody song to go with it.

Sorry, Dolores O'Riordan and the Cranberries, your song "Zombie" just worked. You can watch my version here (https://ddoeven.wordpress.com/2016/03/28/filkin-around-pally/)!

Do you have your own words in there somewhere? I couldn't hear them. If you put that music together though Im very impressed, my efforts are always... lacking. And I have no idea how to do videos at all, not that I'm ever doing anything exciting enough to be worth filming.

Also... why are all the musicians I could actually collaborate with always miles and miles away?

N-n-n-necro!

Shameless plug (not that I'm making any money) and side effect of bump for the OP's effort.

I posted some stuff online this week, not DDO related, but folk might like it anyway:

I have officially dubbed my musical style as 'prog-folk'. I'm not having this "if it relates to fantasy it must be filk" nonsense. Filk is taking an existing song and doing stuff with it. It's hard to do well, and so I steer clear of it. I do my own thing... it just doesn't fit with any genre that music platforms have a name for :)
