Asgard Arise!
Ronan Diego Tyrnhand, 1115 AF3

We venerate the ancestors
In many different ways
From elaborate incantations
To ritualistic displays

But do we really notice
The damage we can cause
Taking them for granted
Draining them without pause

We focus on wars on Erdreja
Because for most of us that’s all we see
But on every single other Plane
Wars are fought relentlessly

What we see of them on Erdreja
Is but a fraction of their power
And with that small amount they can bring
Any nation down to cower

Could you even imagine
A war fought on another Plane?
A war fought through the Ages
Over and over and over … and over … again

With the ancestors at full strength
With the power to rend the Weave
True Magic; True Song
And yet more powers you couldn’t believe

And we sit down here on Erdreja
And squabble over stolen land
Draining our ancestors power
Not realising what is at hand

...

The war in Asgard is real
And it’s more important than you and I
As Einherjar I will join the fight
Upon the day I die

As a mortal, my death is certain
But when my body is cold
I shall gaze into eyes of beauty
My Valkyrie to behold

As an incantor I am often guilty
Of casting without thought
Trusting in Tyr to be there
To grant the power that I sought

But what if one day he’s not there?
What if I’ve drained his power dry?
What if he turns his back on me
And leaves me here to die?

I want to be there when Heimdallr
Sounds Gjallarhorn’s call to war
It’s at Ragnarøkkr, the ancestors should die
And not a single day before

I want to see the fields
Of Vigriðr running red
But not through some craven thoughts
Or a sickness in my head

But because Ragnarøkkr is predestined
As only the Norns can understand
It’s the Twilight of the Ancestors
It’s when the hour-glass spills its sand

Our ancestors deserve that day
Because for all the power that they wield
Upon the fields of Vigriðr
Our enemies will not yield

We pray to them each morning
And we sing to them each night
They bring us comfort when we’re mourning
And fury as we fight

I feel my pattern changing
When I cast “By the power of Tyr”
His power courses through me
His raw strength so crystal clear

I am a dedicated follower
And proud of my ancestral claims
I’ll be damned if I have to watch
Asgard go down in flames

And so, I make a promise
To every ancestor that can hear
In my head I scream your names
Every time I call to Tyr

I pledge my life to you and yours
Every time I pray or cast
I give my strength for you to fight
Until Ragnarøkkr comes, at last.
