The Carved Kingdom-

By:

A 100 word Location

 

Mountain easels for vanity of kings.
The precious stone squandered for pride of the unworthy.
The chip chip of centuries bringing down the bones of the earth.
Busts and Equestrians, Statues and Bas-reliefs.
All adorn the diminished mountains.
For power, deserved or not, emanates from these works.
Shaped as the stone was shaped, strengthened by the art of stone.
Princes undo the work of Kings - a cycle repeated.
Until now.
A new King. A new Rule. A circle Broken.
A Plan to arise the bones of the earth and make things anew.
The old must perish to nourish the new.

  My attempt at this style, with a bit of odd prose to boot.

They are going to make new mountains to replace the ones lost to ahem monumental erosion?

I really like it, I like the prose style as well.  So they are going tear down the statues and quarry new stone replace them.   

A brave man to show free verse poetry to crass obvious gamers

Rings and Things

       By: Spark

Pirates' many bejeweled rings and piercings actually had a practical purpose - when the pirate or sailor died, the rings could be taken off as payment for a proper burial, saving him from a watery grave. This could be tied into regional culture, or made into a quest (The Pirate's Lost Rings, etc.). Also gives treasure-seeking divers another thing to look for besides crusty old chests.
