    Firepeaks are Red
    Everwinter Glaciers are Blue
    The knights are mighty
    The swords are sharp and shinny
    With archers on the walls
    All other empire games will have a great fall
    To all the kings men just count to ten
    Goodgame Empire always wins

    You stole my idea! And yours is not even as good as mine!

    1.I have myself a wonderful kingdom
    2.with troops, swords, and arrows, that are all in England
    3.My enemies beware, I have lots of troops to spare
    4.Burn them down to the ground and cheer as victory approaches
    5.They'll be plenty of loot and gold even some for the coaches
    6.Warm up the Black smith fire and set out to sail we are traveling to other kingdoms without fail
    7.Once we arrive we shall raise our banner to let everyone know that we mean business
    8.We shall remain united, strong, and happy for everyone knows of our realness!

    There are 8 lines it's just the words at the end where long.
    So I numbered them, obviously the numbers aren't in the poem.

    This seems fun . . . I wanna have a go!

    Their violet flags raised,
    The Foreigners have came.
    A rush throughout the land,
    Things won't be the same.
    From a great laze,
    The Lords are awoken.
    A struggle to stay?
    Nay, their defenses are broken.

    Um . . . I don't have enough titles. I must brainstorm!

    One of those weird old players who became all sentimental after leaving the game before they could see dear old Empire rot away even more.

    A poem by Doom, there are 8 lines but the sentences are long but correct I think. Anyways, I call it

    Apparent Darkness

    As Twilight falls my Kingdom glows with the light of flames.

    My people are groaning with the pains of hunger, the soldiers are weary from another day of intense training, even I am starving.

    We’ve been attacked relentlessly, and there is another attack coming soon.

    I told my men to travel to the nearest outpost, Patches, there they would be safe till dawn and I’ll be able to recruit more men to join them.

    Though the times are dark, I know that someday my Kingdom will rise out of the ashes that bury it.

    There will be enough food for all again, and the fires will all be vanquished.

    I am their King, their selected sole leader, I give my people the hope they need, I am their light.

    For what kind of a King would I be if I let myself fall into Darkness?

    The Attack

    As we march towards the enemy our banners unfurl
    Many arrows and stones our men began to hurl
    Some of us fell, but we pushed on
    Ladders went up as we had planned and drawn
    We scaled the walls and took 2 of the flanks
    A second wave of men crushed the survivors like tanks
    The courtyard was easy, the battle already won
    And we left the castle burning, at the break of dawn

    The subtle wind of hate draws near
    The snow blasts the empire with fear
    The sands steal life with cruel irony
    The strange oil of the desert cooks bravery
    The mountains neither stand nor listen,
    The death clear by the bounty of the dragons.
    The least brave are the barons of the great empire
    They have nothing, no stone, no sand nor fire.

    Dawn Approaches
    Radiant Sun rising in the sky
    Battle results fill our thoughts
    The horns begin to wane
    A night of glory cheers the clan
    Friendships like branches of a tree shelter us
    Roots grow stronger and deeper
    Sleep Awaits.... Content..... Our best was given today

    The Mighty Enemy

    As the enemy marched on

    We stood our ground

    Even if they were the mighty KoN

    We got ready to pound

    As we saw their king

    Shining at the front

    We knew he would feel our sting

    As we made our reason blunt

    here i sit all broken hearted
    a foriegn lord has shortly departed
    the fires are raging , my temper flares,
    but never fear, in defeat i stare
    anew day dawns the fires are out
    an attack i plan was well thought out
    with a smile on my face i venture forth
    to bring the feel of defeat to another lord
