The Delver’s Rhyme – Part 4

May 26, 2024 | Uncategorized

Through shadows dark in this dungeon deep, Thirteen strong their treasures seek.

Buy torchlight’s flicker we’ll find our way , Until we see the light of day.

When I started developing the rhyme, I knew that I wanted to divide the sections into levels of the dungeon, more or less. I also knew that I wanted to progressively increase the sense of danger and discovery. What I didn’t realize initially was that I also wanted to ramp up a growing sense of despair for our reader regarding the plight of our fated hero.

It also needed a chorus that resonated. Something you could imagine a desperate group of dungeon delvers using as a mantra to bolster their courage and drive themselves forward into the deep dark. I couldn’t settle on one, so I came up with two.

The gold that glitters, the jewel, and crown, You’ll find your fortune beneath the ground.

Treasures lost and treasures found, We seek our fortune beneath the ground
