    Default And now, in Christmas carols!

    Rudolf the ghostbane raindeer,
    had a very shiny knife
    and if you ever saw it (saw it)
    you would surely lose your life.

    All off the other reindeer (reindeer)
    used to laugh and call him names.
    They never let poor Rudolf (Rudolf)
    join in any ghostbane games.

    Then one scary, foggy night,
    Santa fled his way,
    "Rudolf with your knife so bright,
    won't you slay that ghost tonight?"

    Then all the Reindeer loved him (loved him)
    and they shouted out with glee
    Rudolf with your knife so bright,
    you'll go down in his~tor~y
    (like Fea~ther~of~suuuun)

    City sidewalks busy sidewalks .
    Dressed in riposte style
    In the air
    There's a feeling of Ghostbane
    Children laughing
    People passing
    Meeting smile after smile
    And on every street corner you'll hear

    Deadly bells deadly bells
    It's Ghostbane time in the city
    Ring a ling hear them ring
    Soon it will be Ghostbane day

    Strings of street lights
    Even stop lights
    Blink a bright red and green
    As the shoppers rush
    home with their treasures

    Hear the snow crunch
    See the kids bunch
    This is Santa's big scene
    And above all this bustle
    You'll hear

    Deadly bells, deadly bells
    It's Ghostbane time in the city
    Ring-a-ling, hear them ring
    Soon it will be Ghostbane day

    Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
    And never brought to mind?
    Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
    And auld ghost byne?

    For auld ghost byne, my dear,
    For auld ghost byne,
    We'll tak a cup o' kindness yet,
    For auld ghost byne.

    And surely ye'll be your pint-stowp,
    And surely I'll be mine!
    And we'll tak a cup o' kindness yet,
    For auld ghost byne.

    For auld ghost byne, my dear,
    For auld ghost byne,
    We'll tak a cup o' kindness yet,
    For auld ghost byne.

    We twa hae run about the braes,
    And pu'd the gowans fine;
    But we've wandered mony a weary fit
    Sin' auld ghost byne.

    For auld ghost byne, my dear,
    For auld ghost byne,
    We'll tak a cup o' kindness yet,
    For auld ghost byne.

    We twa hae paidled i' the burn,
    Frae morning sun till dine;
    But seas between us braid hae roared
    Sin' auld ghost byne.

    For auld ghost byne, my dear,
    For auld ghost byne,
    We'll tak a cup o' kindness yet,
    For auld ghost byne.

    And there's a hand, my trusty fiere,
    And gie's a hand o' thine!
    And we'll tak a right guid-willie waught

    For auld ghost byne.

    For auld ghost byne, my dear,
    For auld ghost byne,
    We'll tak a cup o' kindness yet,
    For auld ghost byne.

    Default Ghostbane Ye Merry Gentlemen

    Ghostbane ye merry, gentlemen
    Let nothing you dismay,
    Remember it's our Saviour
    And made to work that way,
    To save us all from Undead power
    When we are new at play:
    O deadly of riposte again,
    Riposte again
    O deadly of riposte again.

    From Dev our heavenly Feather
    A blessed suffix came,
    And unto every player
    Brought items all the same,
    How that in DDO was born
    The Bane of Ghosts by name:
    O deadly of riposte again,
    Riposte again
    O deadly of riposte again.

    The players found those items
    Not what they had in mind,
    And left them in the chests a-laying,
    Not worthy of to vend,
    And came to Forum straightway,
    To curse Ghostbane unkind:
    O deadly of riposte again,
    Riposte again
    O deadly of riposte again.

    But when to Forum players came,
    With words this Bane to flay,
    They found it filled of kindred
    Posts conveying the dismay;
    They typed, they fumed, they pleaded,
    But Ghostbane was to stay:
    O deadly of riposte again,
    Riposte again
    O deadly of riposte again.

    Now to Ghostbane sing praises,
    All you within this game,
    For all of us, from newb to vet,
    Each Undead can we maime;
    This holy tide of Ghostbane
    All other doth defame:
    O deadly of riposte again,
    Riposte again
    O deadly of riposte again.
    The newest computer can merely compound, at speed, the oldest problem in the relations between human beings, and in the end the communicator will be confronted with the old problem, of what to say and how to say it. - Edward R. Murrow (1964)

    O Ghostbane! O Ghostbane!
    Thy blades are so unchanging;
    O Ghostbane! O Ghostbane!
    Thy blades are so unchanging;
    Not only when shadows are here,
    But also when skellies draw near.
    O Ghostbane! O Ghostbane!
    Thy blades are so unchanging.
    Once upon a time, I was part of a team, and we saved some children. What have you done with your life?

    Oh come all ye Ghostbanes
    Shocking and riposte-ful
    Oh come ye, oh come ye
    to loot ta-ables
    Come and behold them
    Copi-ed and pa-asted
    Oh come let us adore them
    Oh come let us adore them
    Oh come let us adore them
    Gho-o-ost banes

    Oh the treasure inside is frightful,
    but the chest is so delightful.
    And since we’ve no other place to remain.
    Let it Ghost! Let it Ghost! Let it Bane!

    It doesn’t show signs of stopping,
    And I’ve brought some swords for chopping.
    We must end the undead-reign.
    Let it Ghost! Let it Ghost! Let it Bane!

    When we finally fight tonight,
    How I’ll hate going out of the storm-
    reach, but if you really swing it right,
    all the way home I’ll be warm.

    The mobs are slowly dying,
    and, my dear, we’re still ghost-byning.
    As long as we could gain.
    More of Ghost! More of Ghost! More of Bane!

    Go, tell it to the players,
    over the hills and everywhere.
    Go, tell to the players
    that Ghostbane loot is worn.

    While Turbine kept their patching
    over silent flocks by night,
    behold throughout the future,
    there's more we have to fight.

    Go, tell it to the players,
    over the hills and everywhere.
    Go, tell it to the players
    that Ghostbane loot is worn.

    We always fear and tremble
    when chests beneath the earth
    won't offer other treasure
    than Ghostbane - it's not worth.

    Go, tell it to the players,
    over the hills and everywhere.
    Go, tell it to the players
    that Ghostbane loot is worn.

    It was not a banger
    when our humble loot was born,
    but Turbine sent salvation:
    Ghostbane for everyone.

    Go, tell it to the players,
    over the hills and everywhere.
    Go, tell it to the players
    that Ghostbane loot is worn.

    When I am a seeker,
    I seek both night and day.
    I seek Ghostbane to help me,
    and it shows me the way.

    Go, tell it to the players,
    over the hills and everywhere.
    Go, tell it to the players
    that Ghostbane loot is worn.

    It made me a watchman
    upon the Stormreach wall,
    and 'cause I am a Hero,
    I take Ghostbane for all.

    Go, tell it to the players,
    over the hills and everywhere.
    Go, tell it to the players
    that Ghostbane loot is worn.

    Default Parody of a classic parody?

    Jingle bells, Turbine smells,
    Ghostbane laid an egg;
    The hamster wheel lost appeal,
    Yet still I grind away...
    I would still like to see... Something that tests character versatility and player adaptability rather than character focus strength and quest knowledge.
    I play the quests for the content of the quests not just as an XP/min merry-go-round.
    Actual play experience is worth infinitely more than theorycrafting...

    Default If the Droaam had carols...

    Dashing all their hopes,
    Gonna sack their village today;
    Through the gates we go,
    Slaying all the way! (mwa-ha-ha-ha)
    Alarm bells through the town ring,
    Giving people fright;
    It's so fun when they writhe and scream,
    Instead of putting up a fight!

    -OH!-

    Ring those bells, ring those bells;
    Death has come today!
    You better run, you better hide,
    Or you'll become our slaves!

    From the walls and eaves,
    We stretched the people's hides;
    When Sorra Katra came,
    To see that we'd done right;
    The carnage was, so immense;
    That she seemed satisfied!

    -OH!-

    Ring those bells, ring those bells;
    Death has come today!
    You better run, you better hide,
    Or you'll become our slaves!

    So now we're moving on,
    Having pillaged our fill this day;
    On the horizon next,
    Is Stormreach in dismay;
    For they know the Droaam march,
    AND
    THEY
    HAVE
    COME
    TO
    SLAYYYYYY!
