Wesnoth Rap Battle: Ardonna vs Mal-Keshar

Post by ForestDragon »

Me and Mirion decided to do a rap battle with two of wesnoth's necromancer main characters (he will be doing Ardonna's verses, while I do Keshar's). He and I will be posting our verses here as we write them

I am the one who began, who started it all
you are the one who ran, and was manipulated. lol.
We started much the same but with some stark differences.
I left on my own, I wasn't kicked out, but I tell you now that's not what the only difference is.
You couldn't keep quiet, couldn't be cautious.
You killed a man because his words made you nauseous.
What's more it was an accident, you didn't even know.
How can you compare yourself to me, is your brain really that slow?
I experimented in secret and found my own way.
I chose my own moves, was never just a pawn in play.
A puppet of Volk, twisted and corrupt,
meanwhile everything I discovered on my own, not like you, pup.
You were spoonfed it all and had your hand held.
At the same time I wrote a book unparalleled.
You read it yourself, you used what I found.
After in your own dispair, you drowned.
You killed all who meant something to you,
Your sister, your friend, all because of a necromancer out of the blue?
I had meaning, I had purpose! I would bring eternal life!
You couldn't live a single day without causing strife.
You never used your eyes to see more than your own concerns.
I never lost an ally, there weren't any friends that ever felt my spurns.
I left Tabahn in peace, we went our separate ways.
I found myself a cave where no heroes would search in craze.
Even in solitude you used deception as was your life.
I continue my experimentation, I do not live by use of knife.
One day I will return, when the people are ready to accept me.
I will not force their hands or treat their lives like mockery.
I plead you take the time, to look inside yourself.
And find a place of peace, put your anger on a shelf.
We have been given a gift, eternal life is in your hand.
Do not let it all slip through like a handful of mere sand.

Done with your cutesy little speech?
Hypocritically of peace and calm you preach
A pretentious white-haired witch
Is no match for a true legendary lich
Drop your innocent little angel act, fooling anyone you ain't
You fault me for the blood I spill, yet you yourself are hardly a saint
You boarded a ship with your ghouls, and, while you were having a nice nap on a voyage east
The ship's unsuspecting passengers became your pets' feast
You can't even keep your minions on a leash
Quite pathetic for a self-proclaimed genius inventor, sheesh
You kill any who stand in your way too, yet act like you're somehow better than I
Is this what your "I do not live by use of knife" looks like? Are you perhaps high?
Is this the "will not treat their lives like mockery" of which you spoke?
Your verses are a pathetic sham, mirrors and smoke
Didn't know the bar for pacifism these days is so low - a few honeyed words and that's it?
Miss, you are an absolute hypocrite
I set upon my path not for personal gain, but to protect Parthyn, my hometown once dear
To have revenge on the orcs terrorizing it to no end, to make the constant threat disappear
I tried my best to ensure those I held dear would be safe, but it was all in vain
For all I got in response to my valiant efforts was disgust and disdain
My patience for Drogan's BS ran out, I snapped in a burning rage there
I killed that ungrateful b*stard, yes, but despite that most of the villagers I spared
Regarding Dela, you must have read the wrong timeline
Unlike some other Malins I merely fled with the tome in hand and left her alive
It's true I was a puppet of Volk at first, but I cut the strings along with puppeteer
I may have been the gullible apprentice but now I am the master here
"I continue my experimentation" you said? Funny, cause after I saw you retire
All you did was "learn the applications of mountain fire"
For how much time you spent studying pyres I expected the quality of your roasts to be higher
To acquire rap skills like mine you can only desire

Ah, here we go about my hair. Didn't take you long to stoop to such a level,
Go on, tell me more. I'm sure you'll come up with something I've not yet heard
You seem to just be waving petty insults about looks in which you clearly revel.
Odd that you're considering me to be beneath you, when you needed my own book,
You consider yourself legendary, but how did you become a lich again?
You had the idea yourself right? Oh wait, that's right, it was to my writings you did look.
To think that you would have the gall to speak when you were no more than a pawn,
You talk of you controlling from the folds of your masters own cloak
You were taught and spoonfed every lesson. From life's own experience were my lessons drawn.
Even so you miss the point, about you lashing out in anger,
it's no wonder that the world isn't ready for the gift we bring.
There are too many blunders like what you've done, but I'm sure that story's a real banger.
There is no acting in the victories I've won. I know you wouldn't understand,
I am a genius though of no invention, but of discoveries you see.
In comparison to all I've accomplished do you think yourself so grand?
You defended your home, I'm proud of you, to be sure.
But had you not needed to be applauded you could have saved Parthyn from the shadows.
In the end you became the villain all because of your delusions of grandeur.
The knife you live on is of your own making, for you made all your enemies yourself
You could have easily forged your own path but you were feeling so alone
So in need of Daddy Darken's company you were, you put your logic on a shelf
Revenge and company is what you needed to help you sleep at night, but did you feel better?
After all was said and done, and the Whitefang clan destroyed
You stayed in your cave, rotting. You're showing yourself a real go-getter.
You call yourself the master, but you are obviously confused
For even you considered yourself to be the pawn of the author of the book
In case you forgot, that's me, I'm the one who wrote the book, so "master" is misused
Instead consider yourself an instrument in one of my many experiments
I have learned much from watching you. I know a lot of what not to do that is.
But sure, a "master", I'll give you a "council seat", I'll even give you some council cerements
It's obvious the world isn't ready for what I have to offer
If the best that's come along is you, I'll wait longer and longer.
And I'll continue waiting until the world produces one who is ready for the gifts I proffer.
