Kindling Fortune

Firelight upon the wall
mortal shadows dance

The hand of Asgard
toys with the flame

Heroes made great
heroes cast down

The will of the Gods
ever ready to change

Safety traded for Freedom
Peace traded for Wealth

Wounds traded for Fame
Kin traded for Vengeance

Mortality becomes a song
in the mouths of Skalds

Asgard deals in Fates
Wyrd both cruel and kind

A crucible of gold and blood
in which our legends are forged
