Talk Like Shakespeare Day 2016
Did thou knowest William Shakespeare would arriveth at the ripe olde age of 452 years old today, April 23, 2016?
Mayhaps in celebration of Talk Like Shakespeare Day, thou may enjoyest this ode to the Spiral.
To be a Wizard, or to be a Pirate
To be a Wizard, or to be a Pirate – that is the question:
Whether ‘tis nobler in the Spiral to sail
The skyways in search of fortune
Or to cast spells against a world of monsters,
And by opposing end them. To fizzle – to dodge-
No more; and by a spell to say the best
The battle board, and a thousand spark shooters
That game is heir to. ‘Tis a conundrum
Devoutly to be chosen. To fizzle – to dodge.
To dodge- perchance to riposte; ay there’s the rub!
For in that dodge or fizzle what spells may come
When we have shuffled our cards,
Must give us levels. There’s the respec
That makes Jane Canary have so much agility.
For who would bear the critical attacks in PVP,
Th’ opponent’s wrong, the proud use of Open Chat,
The pangs of Bad Juju, the stun’s delay,
The inside of Ambrose’s office, and the spams
That patient merit of th’ newbie takes,
When he himself might his Menu Chat make
With a crafting quest? Who would these mistwood bear,
To fail to defeat under a weary quest,
But that the dread of “did not collect”-
The undiscover’d Spiral, from whose bourn
No traveller spins in circles- puzzles the Wizards,
And makes us rather complete those quests we have
Than take side quests that we know not of?
Thus choice does make newbies of us all,
And thus the native hue of our sails
Is matched with the pale pink of our companions,
And enterprises of great quests and battles
With this regard their companions turn awry
And lose the name of action. – Fizzle now!
The fair Ophelia Moonreach!- Vendor of Wysteria
Be all my friends rememb’red.
Parody of “To be, or not to be” from Hamlet.
