New Works and Words

....as seen through my heart and vision.
Pedro Sena, Associate Editor



The nature of a game called EverQuesT is an elusive one. Players come and go and rarely think of Michelangelo, and furthermore, some of them couldn't give a damn. But there are times, when a game is not a game, and its sumptuous surroundings can help define a terribly important moment, that rarely will anyone realize how valuable its lessons are. It took but one posting, by the honorable Bard "Korendel", to write one day, about a friend she had met, who fell to the curse of the modern plague, AIDS. I have made a decision to let each part speak on its own, and Korendel's words are exact with only minor English corrections.

When I read Korendel's note which is the first part of this piece of work, I was simply stunned. I wrote the poem that I revised and fitted to this piece of work here. The only changes from the original are the adaptation to the moment in time, in this case at the Temple of Solusek Ro, a particular location on the NorthEast side of the continent of Antonica in the game. The poem got a response.

A week later, a whole bunch of people at Verant (the company that owns this game), announced the very first event of its kind that I am aware of. Several "GM's" (leaders for each server in the game), decided to create a Service for Myristica. I wanted to be a major part of that, and figured that my poem should be read during its proceedings. I did not know how others were going to react, although I knew that in the Message Board where I posted the original, only a couple of folks actually said anything ... too many kids that did not know the difference, or what all that meant. After all, it was poetry! Korendel, was not adverse to it, and I think that she was much too over wrought by the whole thing, to read it, and allow it to sink in. I don't blame her really. I don't know that a poem like this one, or any Ode that could possibly be created, can jolt one back from the stupor of a major personal loss and survive it without being jolted.

I have always believed that inspiration is a funny thing. Lord Byron used to make fun of people by telling them that he created a lot of poems while in the bath. I have milked some nice inspiration via this game and its players. There are a lot of nice things in it. One might ask, what is a mature man, writer, doing fooling around in a game, and creating poetry off it? Well, if I knew I would tell you, but suffice it to say that many of the generic forms of inspiration in the world of writing, just do not satisfy me anymore. The so called "muse" is packed with bad smells and ugly visions, and I was not interested in another Sylvia Platt, or Rimbaud statements. I'm tired of writing senseless love poems that go by un-noticed or read.

The game, within its parameters, has a log of everything that takes place in it. This log allows one to due a few things, and I have found yet another good use for this file. The basis for the work is the log, which pretty much tells the whole story, and how it develops. I don't know if I could make it fit any better. Within the words from the many players that appeared, are mine on, and conversations with other members of my "Guild", our very own group of poets, and writers that have participated in several poetry "slams" ... we haven't won much yet because we are too serious and do not write too much cutesy stuff ... but that's not enough to quit on. Poetry is my slam, and I love writing it. I can only hope that it is meaningful, soulful and helpful to many others. I take special heart to Crystasia's fine words at the beginning of the event prior to my own poem.

I would like to thank Verant and its creators for this piece of work and a very special mention is to be made to the GM's in this game that performed the services:

Part 1

Moshkiae wonders



I sat by the fire, and stared at it,

was not sure what I wanted to see,

sights untold, maybe a new planet

that sets the stars apart, to be

said to mean certain things again

that we rarely discuss in refrain,

much less in words for any memory

lest we remind our inner faculty

of a fact or two, of a deed or two,

that helped us grow, older, and die

sometimes sooner, than 'ever desired

as a signal of a need for change to

a new life, a new goal, passing by

this earth, and our body's attire.

As I stared at the fire,

I felt a bit old,

teary eyed

I didn't even know this person,

I had met the Bard once before in my travels,

It didn't mean much to me


but it did MEAN much to me!

Even today, as I write this account

of my feeling, in this matter,

I still sulk, wet my eyes,

and wonder if I have enough words

to say anything

that matters ...

I had a young friend,

many years ago,

that also died

for the same reason,

he was a Bard, a different sort,

who drew a duck,

called "Zen Duck",

and his humor,

was unsurpassed ...

even today,

I laugh, and cry,

all in one breath.

Ollie was a Bard,

and, ...

you see, I'm a bard,

and not many of us have the privilege

of being heard,

in life,

much less in a game,

in a damn game,

just a fucking game,


but I could not get away

from the ever so romantic notion

that someone would spend a full moon

and look at the sky,

or share a moment in time

when all things stand still

and you can finally admire


I am not sure that it is nature,

I am not sure that it is humans,

I am not sure there are words

that can explicate a feeling

from our inner vision,

specially in a game,

that has little, if any,

respect for "life",

or living


makes me angry a lot,

and I always write about it,

falling on undead ears,

with only one comment once

as to the "weird guy"

that sat on the ledge of a theater

and read some poetry

made on the spur of the moment,

to anyone that wanted to hear it,

or not hear it.

Strange that an hour later,

there was not a single comment,

strange that an hour later.

everyone is still deaf,

strange that an hour later,

no one has passed by,

but a Guard


if words by a person

mean not a thing to another,

how is it that a death

will come to mean


I didn't care.

Wait a minute!

I was going to care,

come hell or high water,

be it deaf, mute or blind

I am gonna care!


I have been close to that plague


not a pleasant sight


it feels like such a waste


and I am not one of those

that goes to church on Sundays

that forgets the piety on Monday

and goes back to the hatred

all over again

for the next six days.

KILL, KILL, and some more KILL.

I've always asked for more,

even if the many trolls

that parent an area or two

will never understand

that which I am saying

or ever hope to bring across,


and my friends,

this is the only language I know,

the only words I can say

these things with


I did not have the luxury you did,

of living in one language,

one country,

one life,

only one sound of music,

only one ear

to tell you what is good,

or bad,

or right,


The fire felt warm,

but meaningless,

just a thought,

that someone can not share

during this moment of warmth

when words disappear

and all that is left

out of your pure heart

are some strains of color

that we all hope

means something worthwhile,


but I know

that there is more to this heart

and that some of us can, will part

one day, for ventures far and away

what we know now, at work and play,

so that we can all again yet meet

and share a feeling, behold the meek,

that loved and cared, and did share

everything they had, nothing to spare,

as a sign that there is much love

that hovers in our stead, and earth

not as god, but a very special seal

that comes from the innerly above

gained in a little heart at your birth

forever known, as one's special feel.




Part 2

Korendel speaks:


Most of you do not live, in the lands of Veeshan, so this name of Myristica probably means nothing to you. Even those of you who do frequent those lands, may not know the name, but I do.

Her real name was Samantha "Sam" Shultz and she was a major part of my life.

It was many eons ago, that I began playing a game,

EverQuest was its name,

and at that time I received an e-mail from Sam,

a friend who had moved away several years before

and whom I commonly received e-mails from several times a week.

She was ecstatic about a new adventure she had discovered.

Soon we met, yet again, in Veeshan

and hunted together for several seasons,

I playing my Bard, and she her Mage.

Soon Sam surpassed me in levels, and by the time I had reached 15 she was fighting her way into 40. How time flies and disappears in your eyes.

EverQuest wasn't the only thing Sam was fighting her way through.

Neither of us ever mentioned the fact that she was growing so much faster then I was.

We both knew she had much more time to play, though neither of us wanted to think about the reason.

When Sam moved away from home, it was because she had taken ill and her family disowned her because of it.

From that point on she simply introduced herself as "Sam," no surname, no family.

Things were rough for her, and EverQuest was, for her, an escape.

Sam had tested positive with HIV, a disease which she unknowingly contracted from Brayden Mackenzie, her long time boyfriend (or "soulmate" as everyone else saw them. Sam knew the risks she was taking when she joined with Bray. They used special precaution, but she still contracted the virus.).

She had been handling all her treatments well until April when her mate was taken by the virus.

After that everything went downhill.

Sam stopped playing EverQuest about a month after that, and Myristica sat down to sleep for the final time on the fire-tower in Lake Rathe.

Several weeks ago Sam and her four year old daughter Cantabaleigh (whom we call 'Leigh , and whose name is a play on a musical term) moved in with me.

Soon Sam underwent emergency surgery to remove her left lung which was beginning to deteriorate and plague the rest of her body. The surgery did not go well and Sam ended up staying in the hospital again, machines doing all the breathing for her.

During this time, I spent every day up at the hospital, sharing stories of silly things 'Leigh did, or telling the tails of my "heroics" during our EverQuest moments.

Sam was always eager to hear how all of her old hunting buddies were doing, and I was constantly delivering messages to them from her.

Even though she had so much to live for, it was plain to see that Sam was tired of hanging on.

The once glowing, ethereal being that I had come to love in friendship was no more, in her place was a veritable vegetable of a lifeform, a sick girl with no sparkle left in her eyes.

Friday night Sam died.

The time of death was noted at 8:23 pm, the cause: "complications due to advanced HIV."

Myristica will forever remain level 40, a brave Mage who loved to watch the sunset over Lake Rathe, and to dance in the rain in the Karanas. She was the one who helped me plan the first ever moonlit skinny-dip in Kithicor, and she was the only one who would take me to Everfrost,

just to see the snow.

She often dreamed of Dragon Raids and of going on Plane Runs,

but never made it.

EverQuest was, for her, a way of escape; a way to do all the things she couldn't in "real" life.

In this game she could run, she could jump, and she could swim. She could talk to her friends, go shopping, and visit far off places and lands. She could even meet all the fantastical creatures she had only read about in story books.

As a Bard, I am meant to record the happenings of Norrath and it's people. Myristica was one such person.

I also hope that by sharing her story with others, that Sam will not be forgotten, and also that mayhaps, it will cause people to think twice about what they are doing with their lives.

I am not going to sit here and preach about safe sex, clean needles, or any other such thing, because everyone has heard it a million times before.

I just hope that stories like this one will spark enough public interest that one day a cure will be found...

/em lowers her head and mourns the loss of a close friend.

/em pins a red ribbon onto her breastplate.



Part 3

Moshkiae records the Myristica Service on 7/17/2000


Today, I slept some,

and had a dreary, sleepy,

nothing kinda sleep,

maybe this is what death

will be all about



I have always thought

that we place too much


on this


why couldn't I,

just have,

a "nothing" kind of sleep?

The mind wondered right and left

at times flaky and totally bereft

of anything that had some value

that might give you some virtue,

some worth,

some heart,


maybe some meaning,



No sooner I had entered the lands of Veeshan

I came across our friend Cannelle.

She was dressed in a dark outfit,

more in keeping with the event,

than their role and anything else,

but somehow, in a strange sort of way

it seemed right, and proper.

[Fri Jul 07 17:29:19 2000] Cannelle waves at Moshkiae.
[Fri Jul 07 17:29:24 2000] Cannelle says, 'How are you Moshkiae?'
[Fri Jul 07 17:29:32 2000] You say, 'Good. Poem is ready'
[Fri Jul 07 17:29:41 2000] Cannelle says, 'I am glad'

We parted ways, as I was looking for the event

in the City of West Freeport where so many people

came and went looking for experience

to make their gaming worthwhile,



[Fri Jul 07 17:37:28 2000] You have entered West Freeport.

I set about looking for our friend, Korendel.

She was not here, as I had thought,

and this was going to take place,

somewhere else.


[Fri Jul 07 17:52:31 2000] [28 Bard] Korendel (Wood Elf) <Knights of Salvation> ZONE: soltemple
[Fri Jul 07 17:52:47 2000] You told korendel, 'Sol?'
[Fri Jul 07 17:52:56 2000] Korendel tells you, 'Didn't you get summoned ?'
[Fri Jul 07 17:53:01 2000] You told Korendel, 'No'

As I sat there in conversation

Poem in the pocket,

I have tried it three times,

I have read it 100 times,

I want to clean it out yet again

which line is good,

which line is weak,

how do I deliver this,


[Fri Jul 07 17:53:33 2000] You have been summoned by the gods!
[Fri Jul 07 17:53:34 2000] LOADING, PLEASE WAIT...

When I open my eyes, I am in a Temple

I had never seen before, even in pictures.

Funny thing,

is that I have seen

this temple once before.

In my dreams, many years ago.

Odd that I would meet,

of all places, in a game,

a place that I had dreamed about,


everything as it should,

the rise over the lava river

with the two guardians at each door.

The large room with a lookout view

from the 2nd floors covering all around,

with the small, flying red harpies,

ready to say hello,

if you did something you shouldn't,



that I had ever been a part of, in this game

could express the awe

and wonder that I felt at that moment.

Was this real?

Too real?


Is this a game?


Maybe I am crazy, and have forgotten

the difference,

ohh yes, the difference,

between what might one day be called life,

and the next is considered just a game,

where you might, some do meet even a wife

and then create a raucous for a little fame,

to help deter the depressing and boring

style of repeated play, levels soaring,


I have never thought of it as a game,

I know this is crazy,

and often strange,

but since I am a Bard,

to consider an alternate part of myself,

also a Bard,

not me


it can't be.

It is me.

[Fri Jul 07 17:58:33 2000] Karasham says, 'Asera told me about it, but can not make it. I figured I wold stand in place of. Thank you for coming as well friend!'
[Fri Jul 07 17:58:44 2000] Berrek weeps openly.
[Fri Jul 07 17:59:19 2000] You told Korendel, 'Say when and I will read poem in shout'
[Fri Jul 07 17:59:20 2000] Berrek rends his garments and pours ashes over his head.
[Fri Jul 07 17:59:39 2000] Tinytoes wonders if he should say a speech.
[Fri Jul 07 17:59:52 2000] Korendel tells you, 'Alright . I think the GMs plan to say something first . At least, I'm pretty sure . I'm rather overwhelmed right now .'
[Fri Jul 07 18:00:03 2000] You told Korendel, 'Thx'

[Fri Jul 07 18:01:46 2000] You say to your guild, 'My tribute to a caster'


Little will many outsiders know

that in this game you have to tow

a few oddities, that often become

your main weapons of defense and lore.

Some places a Caster has to get a Broom

and follow a Quest, where it will loom

into a nice, beautifll wand of power

for the casts, the critter to shower,

and hurt.


and similarly they will find a shovel

and then go quest the game to level

and turn it into a dangerous sceptre

that will carry power,


and help the caster

take out potent enemies and critters


[Fri Jul 07 18:01:56 2000] Evelyn thanks Kyrani heartily.
[Fri Jul 07 18:01:59 2000] Berrek tells the guild, 'Poetic.'

[Fri Jul 07 18:02:13 2000] Tinytoes wonders when service begins.
[Fri Jul 07 18:02:14 2000] Calistaah says, 'Ty' (Note: Short for Thank you)
[Fri Jul 07 18:02:23 2000] Tanndaina watches quietly.
[Fri Jul 07 18:02:26 2000] Cannelle waves at Tinket.
[Fri Jul 07 18:02:30 2000] Cannelle hugs Tinket.
[Fri Jul 07 18:02:41 2000] Vesta puts Tink up on the ledge.
[Fri Jul 07 18:02:53 2000] Peris hugs Tinket.

 Part 5

Moshkiae Wonders


Almost three months have passed

and to this day, I read these words

and their heart, words,are blessed

and I can not forget,

still I cry,

still I think,

still I wonder,


still I feel empty inside,

for lack of words,

for lack of feelings,

that can accurately






in a game.

But it was nice, even if a dream

that something's in the life stream

still come by your full screen vision

and show you that feeling, a division,

to your heart, mind, love and lore

will come around often heretofore

show us, that we have to be humble

and occasionally say, prey, stumble,

into various friends, lives and loves

that hardly teach you ...



but they touch your very heart soul

with strength that takes its toll


causing you to remember, or forget,

your daily troubles,

as your mind fogs

and your vision wonders,



is it an end,

is it a beginning,


and yet,

on this one day,

here we were,

next to Myristica


did it mean anything?

was it worth anything?


I was there,

I still remember,

and felt I had to write this,

as if it meant something,


it has, for me.

What is it, I sit here and wonder,

the meaning of the whole, sad event

that took place on that very somber

day, when in a hot temple, a moment

passed me by, and touched my shoulder

and let me know something far inside

that I can carry with me, rise bolder,

into another year of my life to abide

with myself, with my soul, and spirit

so I can learn to live, love, and prey

with the full heart, heaven near it,

Norrath's map, with a script gone astray,


nothing, I see nothing, but some respect,

or perhaps a hope that I won't face this

kind of demon, ever, forever, life or game,


and that I can once in a while, expect

that a few well placed feelings amiss,

with words and heart, any disease, tame.

And this, I wish to share, with many others,

and hope that it means something,

that can be used,


in a life,

even if it was,

just a game.


Part 6

Moshkiae receives a message

I've come to the end

of the great blue yonder


all the magic's,

seem so mundane,






I look back

at my resting love,

my so special friend


think of my own



how I miss her




and a quest,




that many spoke of,

some played,

and I lived with


and some

write about


strange that a Bard

who drinks, plays hard

is to write a memory

of a duet, a story


to make it live further on

and rest on a great pantheon


not just my memory


but many other hearts


a tale of a tragic story,

today, rests in all glory


as a new day long beckons,

and a mind rests, eyes flicker

jolting our own vision, I reckon


my portal has come,

and I will leave,



you and I




Moshkiae Soulmender


An Informational Journey Into A Creative Echonet [931001]
(C) Copyright "I Write, Therefore, I Develop" By Paul Lauda

Come one, come all! Welcome to the newsgroup alt.centipede. Established just for writers, poets, artists, and anyone who is creative. A place for anyone to participate in, to share their poems, and learn from everything and everyone. A place to share *your* dreams, and philosophies. Even a chance to be published in a magazine. The original Centipede Network was created on May 16, 1993. Created because there were no other networks dedicated to such an audience, and with the help of Klaus Gerken, Centipede soon started to grow, and become active on many world-wide Bulletin Board Systems. We consider Centipede to be a Public Network; however, its a specialized network, dealing with any type of creative thinking. Therefore, it makes us something quite exotic, since most nets are very general and have various topics, not of interest to a writer--which is where the Centipede steps in! No more fuss. A writer can now access, without phasing out any more conferences, since the whole net pertains to the writer's interests. This means that Centipede has all the active topics that any creative user seeks. And if we don't, then one shall be created. Feel free to drop by and take a look at Newsgroup alt.centipede

The year 2000, has given the Ygdrasil a measure of acceptance that was much beyond the vision that we had when things first started. The NATIONAL LIBRARY OF CANADA, has requested that we send them a copy each month, and has also undertaken to maintain a complete archive of all the work we do. I have always clamored for a little attention, and I suppose that I have always wanted to leave a mark on a thing or two, so I could prove my worth to my own peers and family. Other than Klaus and a few friends in this group, my work seems not to mean much, and I have always cried about this ... can words mean so little, to so many ... that they get left behind?

But for once, I can say, that I am proud to have added a small inch of a contribution, although Klaus deserves all the credit for this. I wish I could come up with a couple more issues per year ... but fates have been hard for the past three years, specially my vision ... making this alone will force me into bed for a couple of hours ... but I can't help it.

Ygdrasil is committed to making literature available, and uses the Internet as the main distribution channel. On the Net you can find all of Ygdrasil including the magazines and collections. You can find Ygdrasil on the Internet at:
