Part 5

Sylph flipped three cards
She puzzled in her eyes
Flipping out more fates

She hummed ballads
And though paused sighs
She began to speak the mates

Do you know of Snow Bear
The Legion of Vale Fall
Or Mercenary Queen Tir Lyre

Sylph answered before trio dare
All hear forest heart call
Riches from which they desire

They will storm the three gate
With plans to slay guardians grand
Goblin is now chink in scheme

Antidote for Topaz’s fate
Amethyst will brothers band
Your three fates still in dream

Beyond this repast
I will be no help
So I shall use my magic

Wall of water iced blast
Will leave them like whelp
Till its fall tragic

No harm may I do
Yet in delay I may aid
Make haste to yonder slope

My fate worry not you
I will stand not afraid
For your future is only hope

Part 4

Second watch elf was wake
Thoughts of day in mind raced
Trust and doubt battle fought

Quiet morning sun did make
Eager to head out elf paced
On horizon Topaz signs sought

Onward to mountain cave
Goblin by Elf lead
Hope rising of quiet morning

Topaz would soon be save
Protecting glen from outer greed
Sudden arrow without warning

Arrow pierced goblin arm
Elf searched for archer
Before second volley fly

Elf fired arrow in alarm
From sound of army marcher
Amethyst passed overhead in sky

Dragon let lightning loose
Down fell archer from his roost
Elf to Goblin wound did tend

Scouts in distance use
Direction of army deduced
Reckless abandon no safety spend

As duo made their haste
At bridge new ally met
Hobgoblin friend of elf

Relaying tale of army chased
Hobgoblin agree onward to set
Toward river of one more sylph

No rest would trio bind
On travels to Topaz mine
One day more till mountain climb

Cross river sylph they find
On fish and apples she dine
Urging trio to join in her chime

Part 3

At gate Amethyst paced
Over ashen bodies he trod
Spying distant two in rush

At attention dragon braced
As approached foe with rod
Ogre spell cast and fell a hush

Silenced Amethyst clawed
While elf and goblin pierce
Victorious lizard smiled at ally’s return

Goblin offered healing and laud
Amethyst returned fierce
Ogre body now to burn

Elf and goblin on ward went
Topaz next they seek
In no less harmless land

Across meadows time was spent
Goblin trailed feeling meek
Elf in growing confidence planned

The two stopped at fountain ruin
To drink each their fill
When from sky assailant flew

Down from Sky stones were strewn
As harpy onslaught grew intent on kill
Elf from back javelin drew

Hurling pole toward nearest foe
Harpy cawed and mocked
Goblin search pack for aid

Stone met armor in each blow
Goblin hand around hatchet locked
Turned and flung at assailant blade

Hatchet hit harpy wing true
While stones continued to fly
Elf chanted sacred spell

Goblin bid fallen harpy swift adieu
And Elven flame came from the sky
Harpy menace it did quell

As night fell shelter the pair sought
Another day till Topaz be healed
Bitter root stew no sate did provide

Goblin watched first with trust bought
Quiet sentry with lantern and sword wield
First moon set was night’s divide
