She, the moon looms her fullest bright Evoke her now, hail thine foul magicks Under the moon Beneath the seven spheres and spell seal Time washes away Plans are made, we summon forth She, named on the tablets We read out unbinding verses Unleash curses, unleash her hell I enter the ceremony I smash thine tablets I lash out, I lash out mortal fools Arcane hate and rage Vast is the priestess' gray tome Vast is the pain that shall endure here So here we tread without willfulness to submit To harness this arachnavillain Utter aloud to this mutant of blasphemy Only magicks so pure and spells unstoppable Here on the hilltop we show we are masters To she, the creature of webs and ice Uttered aloud to this mutant of blasphemy Magicks so pure and spells unstoppable Her escape from us means war We've enabled return She shrieks out, she shrieks out We don't fear her foul magicks I have dismissed your ceremony Under my guise of all sorcerous villainy

Terraqueous world of simple design There are plans for you yet I, pure mind for body do pine Still crept towards your domain Now soaring there Incorporeal A great thinker he may be Great white beard his badge of wisdom Ideas has he, great beyond what man should see So says me, heed my words or threaten balance Ideas has he, great beyond what man should see Follow smells of narcotic flowers And dryad's burning hair to the sorcerer's lair Here cosmic writs gaze all knowingly Upon the birth of this entity Still soaring there Incorporeal Testing him here Seeing end near Your scrolls that I seek are all I have come for Far ahead of the ages you'd be But I'll stop you premature, I am sure I'm raceless and faceless, these eons never age me Your somnolent conscious and puerile perceptions Must not be awakened No matter am I, I exist to survive What is known I must know and reap all that is sewn An end to power I have so incurred To slow the turn of your weakling world Now I leave on wings of cosmic rays Cold colored quasars' light guides my way Deep, deep space is where I go to learn Here I stay, intelligence for which I burn Deep, deep space is where I go to learn Keep this pace, intelligence for which I yearn

Could it be the halfling brew? No Could it have been the Elvin Wines? No, but now I'm drunk and pissed I sought the inn, a den of sin, to find some work or better, A pint, a gill, exotic swill, to me it does nto matter To sit among the henchmen and scum, it has me heavy drinking I toast my horn to anger adn scorn Ah, this mead is making me warlike Let the brawl begin Humanoids, laughter and noise, drinking together, slow service this tavern An easy fight by torchlight though I have a heart for battle To sit among the henchmen and scum, it has me heavy drinking I toast my horn to anger adn scorn Ah, this mead is making me warlike Yay to you who has teh honor to meet me in my challenge Yay to you who has the pride, the pride I have for combat Fill my cup or it shall be your neck Swift my axe, barrage of attacks Red with the blood of the melee Join the fun, there's nowhere to run, this mead is making me warlike To sit among the henchmen and scum, it has me heavy drinking Toast your horn to anger and scorn Ah, this mead is making me warlike

An unfathomed fate, Magicks to uncreate Now a mindslave, Death to humble the brave No escape from death, Words have been spoken Into the wizard's grin, never awoken Casting, soon you will die, it's your last mortal cry Eviscerating, arcanus is thrust Pound you to dust Spell has been cast, Your life won't last Unfathomed fate, Crushed through the spellgate Now role to save versus Deathmagick at minus two No escape from death, Words have been spoken Into the wizard's grin, never awoken Casting, soon you will die, it's your last mortal cry Eviscerating, arcanus is thrust Pound you to dust Spell has been cast, your life won't last Follow the other cringing cowards to death's cold embrace Life-killing deathfeast inside your rotted skeletal face Struggle you may but sixty hit points or less and you're dead Nothing is left but your magical items and what I have said: Power Word: Kill

Cold, ere his throne. Ere winter seers the flesh to stone. As ice upon his seat, His will black ice, his gaze blue heat. Giant, grand-ice tyrant, stoic king of these caves. Epic, ageless relic, A timeless axe of the brave. Terror, blue blade bearer, beast of his north. Power, he is tower, From mountains rocks thrown forth. He lobs, his rocks. Frost giant strength he proudly flaunts. "Hahaha, come to die, you so small?" No, none shall pass this way. Fresh corpses of those he's kept at bay. Life or death, we stay this path. Advance head on to meet his wrath. Giant, grand ice tyrant, stoic king of these caves. Epic, ageless relic, A timeless axe of the brave. Terror, blue blade bearer, beast of his north. Power, he is tower, From mountains rocks thrown forth. He lobs, his rocks. Frost giant strength he proudly flaunts. His voice bellows out over the peaks. "To you the gates are closed." But you defy until he speaks. "To me respect is owed. Many I've conquered and I've enslaved. My wars this realm has known. I stand guard these mountains and caves. I rule by beard and throne!" Charge towards the largeling and best him at his gates. Scream as we swing, "On!" We battle with the frozen king Charge towards the largeling and best him at his gates. "Woeful am I, My beard cut for your prize. Woeful I am, You reach the Underdark."

We descend into the Undermountain Underneath the icy northlands The keepers of crypts we seek Dungeoned cities stretch on for miles Built around the layers deep A dark world within the hollow peak Enter epicenter of the denizens to the Underdark Much here's ruled by evil Hold your weapons tightly Adventuring, what will the darkness bring? We seek ye, dread mistress Goblins, orcs and ogres ugly Charging forth, the gate's protectors Beasts in leather slow our hunt Hack and slash the way asunder Leaving behind the mutilated To groan their last, a final curse Enter epicenter of the denizens to the Underdark Much here's ruled by evil Hold your weapons tightly Adventuring, what will the darkness bring? We seek ye, dread mistress Face the captors of torture Meet the prefects of dark Gaze at dimly lit castles Below the world which you know You smell her, your nemesis is near Face this necropolis Caves of the cursed and canyons of worse Demons calling your name We descend into the Undermountain Underneath the icy northlands The keepers of crypts we seek Dungeoned cities stretch on for miles Built around the layers deep A dark world within the hollow peak A circle of tombs to the frost-hued criminals Noble they were from the womb of Lolth A circle of gems, a thousand precious minerals Open the gates to your dungeon

Her wails climb out from deepest Burial to beckon thine worship Our thirst be whetted only after Her head's upon our spear Fiends, they're fiends, guarding their queen Your abomination screams At the top of her lungs in tongues Under them, under the woods Under these skeletal woods, They have arrived to slave whoever comes to find "Back in to line!" A sacrifice for spiders Evil affiliation, there's simply too many to fight Under them, under the woods Under these skeletal woods, They have arrived to slave whoever comes to find "Back in to line!" A sacrifice for spiders Your abomination screams at the top of her lungs Some of us, will surely be killed But all of us will fight back to back All of them must be murdered Only one of them is the bitch we must seize The gnomes, they guide us further Further past Stygian seas The Lichen, it glows like the moonlight Bringing us back out the dark The driders cross their bone-bridge Defending what shouldn't exist A final fight before us, her slaughter-webs in sight Time its now to end this, "I've bested your dungeoncrawl!" A great trophy your bloated womb is to me Lascivious bitch-queen The gnomes, they guide us further Further past Stygian seas The Lichen, it glows like the moonlight Bringing us back out the dark Dark, her endless night

It's his addiction, the mindflayer's addiction Out from the cavern of before Comes an ancient being He damns his thirst; it's his genesis and his curse Arcane scrolls, dimensions he's crossed That bastard beast, he hunts Cast spells from worlds long lost That bastard beast, he preys It's his addiction, the mindflayer's addiction Somewhere in the shadows, He waits, waiting for his time to strike Insatiable thirst, violent taunts They're his needs not his wants No, no way, run, run far away "Oh no, not my brain!" "Yes, your brain! It shall be devoured!" A victim to sustain him Feed off the brain, drain the life juices Devour the intellect, flayer of the mind Flayer of the mind It's his addiction, the Illithid's addiction

So it has been, is now, shall be Learned we are in this thaumaturgy To cancel a life with words of strife Using magicks so old, magicks so cold To end your time, a spell of mine Steal your life and send you to the next Necromantic text Magicks so old, magicks so cold Deathmagick Soon hear the words who herald hatred Soon feel their grip Soon die by curse cast by black wizards Succumb to evil, death quench their awful thirsts Read they red, the glowing texts? Burn it red, the rhythmic hex? So it has been, is now, shall be Learned we are in this thaumaturgy To cancel a life with words of strife Using magicks so old, magicks so cold To end your time, a spell of mine Steal your life and send you to the next Necromantic text Magicks so old, magicks so cold Thsi black spell of death has meant to end you A raging mage has memorized to teach you just what deathmagick means

Beyond that door lies The greatest tyrant in the land Arrival has at last come, the coming of battle Our fate to unravel We storm into her throneroom, through a layer of web Littered with dead The fierceness of her fortress, a wintry chill She's craving the kill The enemy of good, an enemy to al The drowess must fall I'll see your blood on my steel Brave or dumb to follow this far Warm spray of blood on my face I'll be pleased to hand you demise No, your crimes are unnatural, You reek of treachery You are filth, you are all that is to be despised I'll see your blood on my steel Brave or dumb to follow this far Warm spray of blood on my skin I'll be pleased to hand you demise Dance in combat with teh Lich-queen It's your time to die Darkelf shrieks her witch-scream Hellslut and a bloodfiend Sending you to hell Arrival at last come, the coming of battle Our fate unraveled We stormed her throneroom through a layer of web And severed her head Our journey is done
