I know, not a real original title. This is a real quick one, and some of the rhymes may be forced....I'll be glad to take suggestions if you come up with something better (yes, you will get credit).

On second thought, 'Nucklelavee, foul sprite of the nether' would probably sound better.

Heh... my own creature is sort of obscure. I just found it in a little encyclopedia of creatures I have. N is for Nucklelavees, hostile sprites of the nether.

I like Amphisbanes... did you know that they give prophecies? "N" should be for N/A. Haha... That would be funny... teeheehee. Or none, cause no one love "N". I need a life. Hmmm... Do you know what a good book is? The painter knight... that book talks about Amphisbanes. PS: GO ROSARION!! and read the painter knight.

This is a very cool poem. I love the idea. And no, I have no ideas what N could be. 2

I think instead of
"N is for Naga, guardians of great treasures."
which it treasure doesn't rhyme with tether you should put...
"N is for Nerthus, a goddess of heather"
Other than that small detail its really good and keep up the good work.

How about, "N is for Nick, king of all! Bow down to me and worship!" I think that has a nice ring...
19 Sep 200445 Yea
