An orb of power has Xeoromir the explorer found
In the towers of Jarronal at sea so long abandoned
A mark upon the hand and a journey to land
A market and a meeting
An evil long hidden has returned its fear
Two horses lent Xeoromir and friend Immahyr to travel
A kilo mile and a half upon a road long unused
To take the orb to the hall of Lord Exxcelcis old and wise
And then to the depths of the deep halls below the earth
A journey of challenges and a room full of gold
An orb to its scepter and lightning does fly
A ghost of the night long hidden has returned
A battle afoot in a distant land
The lord of the orb defeated forever
A reward of gold for explorer Xeoromir and friend Immahyr
A banquet in a hall and new carts to ride
Years go by and the old king is gone
Behold Immahyr the new lord of the kingdom
And Xeoromir now master of the army
A new adventure for the explorer
Books long hidden returned
An earth-fairy so small and so joyous
Another unfortunate falls from high to doom
A fairy unlucky whose form shall live on
Another more lucky sings for joy each and every day
Later in time the explorer brings the fairy to a meadow so fair
A final expedition and a library to found
Knowledge long lost is returned
A journey at last complete
Where peace and prosperity can rule the kingdom
