"Learn ye now the lore of The Doom that Came to Trito Craa Sertrob."

Trito Craa Sertrob Dominates the sea
A fortress of brutal majesty
Ancestral home, Twin Blades Tribe
On its walls invaders died.
Spires of Blackened steal stabbing toward the sky
Envied by the Kingdoms, the Urklud's pride
Lord of Fish Lanes, Marauder's Scourge
Never fell by siege
Or in war

One New Moon Night
A Black Ship came
Ambassadors of the Pallid King entered the bay.
With gifts in hand,
Brought drought relief
"An elixer sick stock," claimed the

Yellow-Robed Priests of the Pestilent Sign.
Black Ship's berth heralds demise
Hunch-backed wizards; green glass eyes
Chanting Lies - "Lloigor Rise!"
With Jaws of the Gold, those hideous Masks
Like insects buzz about their sinister tasks
Hissing, spraying, murderous mist
Alchemical Death,
Treachery's poisoned gift

For the once mighty orcs of the Twin Blades Tribe
The card is dealt -- the Black Ship!

Vomiting blood, brain sickening, black scabs on skin
Entrails rupturing
The Heaving Death, Necromancy, Dark Sorcery
Rhyme-construed enemy
Breeds in the Mind, spreads through the Mist
Unholy Disease
How can I fight...
...a foe...
...I can't see!?!?!?

Let the red dawn surmise
What we shall do
When this blue starlight dies
And all is through
-- R.W. Chambers
The Yellow Sign

Everywhere an eye turned to see
Brutal violence and infighting
Once united orcs come undone
By demons weaving spells with mist wands
Civil war, tribal suicide
Spellbinding words to conquer and divide
Tusk against Tusk, rising falling blades
Brother killing brother another orc tribe fades

That New Moon Night
When the Black Ship came
Ambassadors of the Pallid King
Whispered their say
With twisted words
Offering relief
But Madness reigned that night, whence came the

Yellow-Robed Priests of the Pestilent Sign
Black Ship's Berth heralds demise
Hunch-backed wizards, green glass eyes
Chanting lies - "Lloigor Rise!"
With jaws of gold, those hideous masks
Like insects buzz about their sinister tasks
Hissing, spraying, murderous mist
Alchemical Death
Treachery's poisoned gift

Vomiting blood, brain sickening, black scabs on skin
Entrails rupturing
The Heaving Death, Necromancy, Dark Sorcery
Invisible enemy
Breeds in the Mind, spreads through the Mist
Invades when we breathe
How can I fight a foe I cannot see?
