During the recent cascade of Sansha incursions, I have given thought to the matter of maintaining morale amongst the Caldari crewmen who fly with me into battle on nearly daily basis. I have observed a decline in morale, with each successive battle we take losses, old friends in fleet die daily, and thus in an effort to raise spirits with round of singing, my Wuos crewman sang this song, and downed a tot of Airaken sake in honour of the dead. Wous V is an oceanic island world, and this song is based on an old sea shanty.

I offer this to my fellow Caldari commanders, in the hope that the loss of morale on so many Caldari ships can be stalled with a high morale and fighting spirit for which we Civire and Deteis are known.

------------------------------------------------------------

Cloaked in light we swim and swim,
Through rampant ocean dark and dim,
We swim to fight we swim to show,
It matters not the world below,
Forever roam the open black,
Ever onward tho' they attack,
And if thou ask the mighty swarm,
What began the ocean storm?
Kuvakei's path of betrayal,
Make him fear Civire miss'le.

------------------------------------------------------------

I hope you will take this, or indeed use it as inspiration for your own. Please forgive the Aulari slang.

Stop putting small guns and 100mn afterburners on navy omens and morale might improve ugh

(( Quite frankly I don't see what me flying and exploring the game like a normal player has anything to do with a) incursions b) a sea shanty or c) the thousands of caldari ships lost in the first few weeks of incursions. OOC comment not welcome. ))

"The Brutor"


Well a Brutor clad in kilt left a bar on evening fair
And one could tell by how we walked that he drunk more than his share
He fumbled round until he could no longer keep his feet
Then he stumbled off into the grass to sleep beside the street
Ring ding diddle diddle I de oh ring di diddly I oh
He stumbled off into the grass to sleep beside the street

About that time two young and lovely girls just happend by
And one says to the other with a twinkle in her eye
See yon sleeping Brutor so strong and handsome built
I wonder if it's true what they don't wear beneath the kilt
Ring ding diddle diddle I de oh ring di diddly I oh
I wonder if it's true what they don't wear beneath the kilt

They crept up on that sleeping Brutor quiet as could be
Lifted up his kilt about an inch so they could see
And there behold, for them to see, beneath his Brutor skirt
Was nothing more than Gods had graced him with upon his birth
Ring ding diddle diddle I de oh ring di diddly I oh
Was nothing more than Gods had graced him with upon his birth

They marveled for a moment, then one said we must be gone
Let's leave a present for our friend, before we move along
As a gift they left a blue silk ribbon, tied into a bow
Around the bonnie star, the Brutor kilt did lift and show
Ring ding diddle diddle I de oh ring di diddly I oh
Around the bonnie star, the Brutor kilt did lift and show

Now the Brutor woke to nature's call and stumbled towards a tree
Behind a bush, he lift his kilt and gawks at what he sees
And in a startled voice he says to what's before his eyes.
O lad I don't know where you been but I see you won first prize
Ring ding diddle diddle I de oh ring di diddly I oh
O lad I don't know where you been but I see you won first prize!


...saw it and couldn't resist. Wink

Bother. You'd gotten quiet, so I made the mistake of getting hopes up that you'd gone and died. Humph.

I made a copy of me singing the poem and played it in my ship; the crew celebrated and doubled the reloading speed of my guns!

Heres a Oldie I first heard durian the battle for Aset.

((To This ))

Men of Auga stop your dreaming
Can't you see their Hull plates gleaming
See their Ion trails streaming
To this battlefield

Men of Auga stand ye steady
It cannot be ever said ye
For the battle were not ready
Stand and never yield

From the hills rebounding
Let this song be sounding
Summon all at Sasa's call
The mighty force surrounding

Men of Auga on to glory
This will ever be your story
Keep these burning words before ye
Matari will not yield

come with you,
you shall see,
you and I,
will make three.

Take the bait,
Its your fate,
walk with me,
reach the gate.

We are the one,
Your all no fun,
all shall see,
when it's all done.

Walk along my dusted walls,
Traverse the end of great halls,
for you to see that i am here,
While all abound this place falls.

Taking the fight to sansha invaders
Slow tanking tubs harried freighters
Drones they go like dogs to doom
Queue up a fifth loss makes room
Nanites spalling armor to space
Microwarp with torps shoot them in the face
Snipers keeping safer spaces
Logis to center hold forsaken places
Structure burning crew punches out
Scrammed and jammed podder shouts
Survivors warp off a safer day
FCs thinking a new and better way

* it helps to mix one part spirits to two parts Quafe with a green citrus fruit called "lime" on some worlds. The more the better.
