    In an upcoming chapter of our third book, we're going to visit the dwarven city of Kul Boldar, which is inside a hollow mountain and lit by bioluminescent fungi and plants. A river runs through it, driving the massive water wheels that power the city and, more importantly, its great forges.

    Along the riverside, down a main thoroughfare, are a long line of pubs and shops all competing with each other, with hawkers out front shouting rhyming advertisements for their respective businesses.

    I suck at rhyming.

    So, I turn to you guys for help. Our dwarves are pretty traditionally Tolkien-esque, hard working and hard fighting and hard partiers. Their pubs have names like The Pig and Pickle and the only jingle I've been able to come up with is for a fish stall. "Never doubt we have the best trout!"

    Any contributions will be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much!

    I quote the great Terry Pratchett:
    "Gold. Gold Gold. Gold. Gold. Gold Gold. Gold. Gold. Gold Gold. Gold. Gold. Gold Gold. Gold."

    Our stout is like our bread, the envy of the dead.

    Drinking songs should be simple enough to be sung by the least capable of folk, yet be interesting enough to remember if they’re to survive longer than a night. Simple, slightly raunchy or not normally acceptible behavior tends to do well. Here's a quick crack at it from me.


    Lord Logdonar

    Old lord Logdonar had a hoard of beer

    He kept it for him, and those he held dear

    Were he a good man, he might have held his

    But the lord was a cheat , who smelled bad as piss


    One day he went, to the haaaarborside

    To tell them who work, to work day and night

    They bled and they sweat, till together they said

    Oh sod off fat bastard, you should work instead


    With a rope for a whip, Logdonar was hit

    Whining and sniffling back to his pit,

    Where he then brought forth, the sum of his wealth

    Liters of laaaaaager,

    Ale, stouts and porters for health

    A golden stout,
    Better then a pig snout,
    Shall make you dance and shout,
    Before you fall around and about.

    Come rain or hail,
    You'll not miss our Ale,
    We bring it to you in pail,
    So you'll be quite Hale.
