Lamentations of a General

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

John Blackham

This is one of my favourites...not one of my best, but it tells a story--There was a general who was cold, heartless, and not very popular among his soldiers...he fought this battle with every scrap of energy he could muster, sending every last one of his men to a quick and painful death. He wandered aimlessly when the enemy believed they had destroyed the attackers, and found among the many slain soldiers one man--his brother. The his brother's spirit clasping his arm, letting him know that never, in all of his life, would he truly be rid of the memory. It was done with a heavy ink pen and took about 2 hours.

This is one of my first ballads...i wrote it over a year ago...i personally think it's very weak in rhyme and rhythm, and doesn't make much sense...but it IS in a bit of background song for my Adzel series. I was going to make the Adzelian version of the Lord's Prayer...though first I have to design national religions...and the background of them...and...ya, you get the idea.

Adzel Chapter VI

In Which Some Character History Is Revealed, And Another Character Is Introduced And Yet Another Comes Back Into Play...

Adzel Chapter IV

I have, at long last, finished Chapter IV! In this chapter, the story line begins to become more intriguing, and the new character is fleshed out just a bit. Actually, it's in these next few chapters the plot really starts to unfold...I tried to avoid the classic 'LOTR-clone' cliche plot seen in the Shanarra and Sabriel series...but you can't really tell this early on. Enjoy! If you find it to your liking, that is.
