"All deep things are song. It seems somehow the very central essence of us, song; as if all the rest were but wrappages and hulls!"

Mage's Power Ballad
Tom Plets Final Fantasy XI | Mhaura
Author's Comments

Mhaura is a quiet little fishing village in the arid land of Kolshushu. The tranquillity is broken only by the occsional ship from the far off eastern city of Al Zahbi, or a fishing boat from Selbina hauling in it's catch. One can hardly see a party of bards playing heavy metal in such an enviroment! However, a softer "power ballad" mirrors the serene atmosphere while hinting at the subtle sense of adventure in the air.

Song was assembled in FL Studio 8, vocals by me, lyrics written by my brother Mark:

A voice floats in on the wind
Yet no one knows what it's saying
Secrets are told, stories unfold
Listen to it's healing words

Come and rest in our town
Time to lay your sword down
Come follow the breeze over the seas
it brings wisdom for you
