[Note] Dibella's Bawdy Song

Post by Tristior »

[I think this would be best as a fairly rare, if not unique, scroll or piece of paper - rather than a book. Stash it in the Bards College or something]

Well the clan of ol’ Shor were sat ‘round looking glum
For in there between them Aldu-ey did stir
But then clever Dibella took up her two drums
And broke into song as they gaped up at her

Dib’la-delly, Dib’la-day
A dragon can fuck just so much, so they say
If a death without mead is a price you won’t pay
Then a life lived forever’s just a good fuck away

Wise Mara was first, o, a goddess in heat
She needed no urging to get under the drake
And Kyn, feeling hungry, went straight for the meat
The Queens of the Sky, what a sound they did make

Dib’la-delly, Dib’la-day
A dragon can fuck just so much, so they say
If a death without mead is a price you won’t pay
Then a life lived forever’s just a good fuck away

Now Pa Shor and Tun were not too dead to rise
One small like a fox, one big as a bear
They took an end each and they met with their eyes
And roasted Aldu-ey like a campfire hare

Dib’la-delly, Dib’la-day
A dragon can fuck just so much, so they say
If a death without mead is a price you won’t pay
Then a life lived forever’s just a god-fuck away

When all’s said and done, the gods did their job
Poor old Aldu-ey was too tired to burn
So take out your sheath or take out your knob
If for a world left uneaten your clansmen do yearn

I really like this. Bards College is exactly the kind of insouciant place to find these words.
<roerich> woah it's hot in here
<Lord Berandas> it must be Summer.
<Infragris> #hell is meant as a spam and off topic channel. Doing a great job already

I think that the "F" word shouldn't go to the final product. It could put off a lot of people, who would prefer their game to stay clean.

That said, I respect your work and love all the rest of the books!
There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear,
because fear has to do with punishment.
The one who fears is not made perfect in love. 1 John 4:18

I can appreciate that point, but at the same time I would argue more egregious language has already been included ("King of Rape" is canon, for instance, and "fuck" already crops up in T_D texts).

As a more general point, this text has been included in Sky_iRe_MK32 as a semi-hidden easter egg. No need to replicate it as a general text.

Throwing fuck around does stick out as an edgy inclusion that runs against Bethesdas use of profanity and the other uses in TD do stick out like a sore thumb.

Cheap and lazy it be.
