Oh Fortuna! The mercilessness of probability [Poem, Art]

#1

So many of us seem upset today with ‘nerfed’ loot. I’ve penned a merry verse to cheer you…

From Rathwood up to Shaguadin, I searched for luscious loot
Some blades, a cape, a ring or two?
Even a tall boot…
I raided once, I raided twice, I tried my very best
To daily bask in the emerald glow of overflowing chests

And even then I craved more loot
So with heroes at the fore
I joined a great alliance
And we went to bloody war

But what was this? Foul treachery!
Our army all depleted.
As arrows fell from darkened skies
I read the word ‘defeated’.

But I will not cower, or be afraid,
I do not easy frighten
My mighty heroes reassemble
To down the brutal titan!

And now I see, the beast is slain
What treasure does it yeild?
Rotten ham, a dagger and a measly WOODEN SHIELD???

So to the forum, off I march
And vent my anger to the fandom.
The truth, cold and hard, dear friend.

The loot you get is random
