Epic Mythology: Halloween Special

Mystic K’Sandra peered into her ball
Seeing a figure, red-skinned and tall
Confused and bewildered, head-pecked and flapped
When upon her door a loud knocking rapped

She opened the door to see the red-skinned male
Demon with horns and long swishing tail
“Tell me dear stranger, why do you come”
As she shielded her eyes from the bright midday Sun

“I search for help, some sort of guide
I have travelled far and have travelled wide
Over mountainous lands and through portals galore
When suddenly I found myself outside your door

I search for six items which must be found
I know not the location I know how it sounds
This desperate quest has one month to complete
Or my partner and I will feel the heat”

Mystic K’Sandra welcomed the traveller in
Sensing the urgency of his quest within
“Tell me your name, and I can find you the truth
As befitting an unusual demonic sleuth”

He said “I’m a Kraa demon, with the name of Sinster”
That was enough, his truth had convinced her
To obtain the list of the items he sought
So she took from him the list that he’d brought

She laid out a parchment, ancient and curled,
And scattered tea leaves, which created the world,
Upon which lay spaces with red circular spots
Six of them scattered, not polka dots

“Here are the places of the items you seek
Touch the dots and the parchment will speak
The correct name of the item and actual time
Will enable you in turn for each item to find.”

Mr Sinster thanked K’Sandra for being so kind
Saying “This will save a great deal of time!”
K’Sandra smiled and wished him well as he went
Back through the portal whence Gabriel sent

So, they have their map and that is that. Where next on their quest will we find them at? The next part of the Sinster’s quest will be along soon…!
Part One here.
Part Two here.

Epic Mythology: Hidden Dreams

Locke collected the three Gifts of Time
And held aloft the Felteryme
She ran her finger across golden dials
And looked upon memories that made her smile

The Lover’s Stone came into view
With happy and painful memories too
She couldn’t bear to look away
As time presented her wedding day

In bright Moonlight shone clear blue eyes
From her lover’s face, young and wise
The gaze bore deep into her soul
And now as then she felt truly whole

Tears fall down Locke’s radiant cheeks
As she hears the words her husband speaks
“My dearest Locke, what wonders you bring
To make me, Kailan, feel like a king”

We’re taking another break from the Epic now, but remember, all previous parts are included in my Storylines Menu, if you’d like to read the story so far!

Epic Mythology: Prey


Flighty Pickanickl slipped down shale cliff
Grazed arms and legs and injured hip
Though Pickanickl knew she must still run
To escape Skaglad, intent on fun

Skaglad, Darkland’s demon guard
Practical joker upon those he barred
From Darkland’s dusty sooty place
With leer and lust upon his face

Pickanickl had served Ynayna well
Ynayna judge above the P’tor cave hell
Ynayna quickly tired of her pet
And decreed to the caves she must be sent

To Sound Village did Pickanickl flee
Desperate for her true love to see
But Skaglad knew where his prey would go
And where she went he followed so

Epic Mythology: Firstborn


Pol’tnorn sat on his throne and laughed
Pol’ana gurgled as she lay on his lap
Pol’suzo smiled at her husband’s glee
His happiness clear for all to see

Their firstborn child brought Elderwoods light
Much needed in the perpetual night
Inflicted upon the Shadowfolk’s land
By both the gods’ and demons’ battled hands

In times gone by a battle raged
With Elderwoods taking centre stage
The demons rained down a fiery foam
The lands protected by the gods’ shielding dome

Pol’tnorn rarely thought of those bygone days
Serving his people and their shaded ways
And with Princess Pol’ana breaking the curse
He knew that they’d been through the worst

Epic Mythology: Underlands


Drips of dank water echoed as they dropped
Into bottomless pools they constantly plopped
Speckles of light shone in through the rocks
Weathered by years of storm ravaged knocks

Damp moss carpeted the cavern’s floor
Edged by rust-eaten cages with broken doors
Prisoners shackled so they could not walk free
Not that there’s a way out to see

Food falls through from a chute above
Bones and leftovers unlovingly shoved
Discarded, wasted, by uncaring hands
To the dwellers of these dark Underlands

No guards visit so there is no escape
And heavy chains drag and clank and scrape
But where there’s a chain there is one weak link
One found by a prisoner permitted to think
