I'm new to G3, but I love your ideas. I just had an idea myself - should Delainey, being seperated from society and therefore the popular tunes of the time, have her own unique self-written bard songs? Songs that reflect her condition or her surroundings?

Actually yes, Del does have some songs that will be uniquely hers.
"I read about the evils of drinking, so I gave it up." "You gave up drinking?" "No, I gave up reading..."

Hm... will the songs be voiced, then? :)

Hard to say. I really don't have a definitive answer at the moment.

Delainy and friends decide to camp on a hill as the sun is setting. A full moon is rising and they share a meal and drinks. Delainy gets caught up in the revelry and breaks out in a comical song... (sung to the rhythm of Weird Al's White and Nerdy)

They see me dancing under a full moon
I know they're all thinking I'm so wild and sexy

Think I'm just too wild and sexy
Think I'm just too wild and sexy
Can't you see I'm wild and sexy
Look at me I'm wild and sexy

I wanna roam with the nobles
But so far they all think I'm too wild and sexy

Think I'm just too wild and sexy
Think I'm just too wild and sexy
I'm just too wild and sexy
Really, really wild and sexy

Leaving Balduran Isle by sea
Thought nice, I'm a werewolf in BG
Charname, that's my favorite PC
He opens my eyes so I can see
My licks never infect, to the contrary
You'll find that they're quite sanitary
All of my songs are quite literary
Someday they'll be in a great library

Our party is completely decked out
We represent a few different races
I can smell you from a thousand paces
I'm no-frills but I do wear laces
I really enjoy an audience that stays
Once you see my performance, you'll be quite amazed
I dance so fast I set the floor ablaze

There's no creature from which I've run
As a werewolf, I'm number one
I chase Charname just for fun
Through the trees and under the sun
Late at night I'll sing him a song
After which he carries me along
We'll defeat any champion you bring on
We're fluent in Dwarvish as well as Common

They see me stroll on my long legs
I know in my heart they think I'm wild and sexy

Think I'm just too wild and sexy
Think I'm just too wild and sexy
Can't you see I'm wild and sexy
Look at me I'm wild and sexy

I'd like to roam with the nobles
Although it's apparent I'm too wild and sexy

Think I'm just too wild and sexy
Think I'm just too wild and sexy
I'm just too wild and sexy
How'd I get so wild and sexy

I've been examining, identifying magical items
You know we collect them
The gems in my bag, I must protect them
My Bhaalspawn lord never leaves me bored
We shop for scrolls and other media
I once read a book called an encyclopedia
Charname memorizes riddles really well
Aerie makes him recite them under a Charm spell

I got a part time job as a dancer
When taverns need songs, I'm the one they call
I do different things for them all
Even juggled swords once for Hendak
I store my scrolls in a magic sack
There was a sale at the Adventure Mart
Charname thinks I'm really smart
Quote this, quote that - hope he doesn't think me stuffy

I'm sexy in the extreme
I'm wilder than a gibberling's scream
I was in the Elfsong and Red Sheaf
And even the Burning Wizard
A question I asked for quite a while
"Do I follow Charname or stay on this isle?"
Spend every weekend at Waukeen's Promenade
Viconia thinks me a trifle odd

They see me posing, they're gasping
And covering their eyes because I'm so wild and sexy

Just because I'm wild and sexy
Just because I'm wild and sexy
All because I'm wild and sexy
Holy cow, I'm wild and sexy

I wanna dance for the nobles
But oh well, it's obvious I'm wild and sexy

Think I'm just too wild and sexy
Think I'm just too wild and sexy
I'm just too wild and sexy
Look at me I'm wild and sexy

After a stunned silence, everyone applauds, and the party goes on into the night.


Hope you like it. I'm drugged up to get rid of a bad cold and a headache, but that didnt stop me from trying my hand at a funny song for Delainy. I could see her singing this maybe after a few drinks and silliness sets in. Oh, and I know Delainy isn't conceited.

*laughs* This is good.

I can really picture this! :)

wanted to hold on to the feeling

Thanks, KIrving. :)

Still sick as a dog; it's a shame I can't find such inspiration when I'm well. Here's another one, a bit darker and more melancholy, based on Sleeping Sun by Nightwish.

Delainy and Charname have gone to bed and the campfire is low. Charname is already asleep and Delainy is looking at him with tears in her eyes. In the distance, the moon is reflecting off the Sea of Swords. Delainy begins to sing in a soft voice...

The son is sleeping quietly
Resting upon my bed of leaves
Ancient dreams within his head
Crimson rivers of blood and death
His dark urges I'll help him fight
For wishes of a peaceful life
In truth, we're running out of time
Bhaal's evil taint, so sublime

I wish for this nighttime to last for a lifetime
His arms around me on the shores of Sword Sea
Oh how I wish to go down with the sun
Sleeping
Weeping
With You

This evil taint has no heart
From my love it must depart
I'll sing to him a thousand songs
Never daring to let go
Two-hundred twenty-two hours of life
Before my love dies to the strife
All his humanity falls away
Until there's no one left to slay

I wish for this nighttime to last for a lifetime
His arms around me on the shores of Sword Sea
Oh how I wish to go down with the sun
Sleeping
Weeping
With You

Thanks for the compliments. Just my way of showing that I haven't given up on this mod, and maybe I can restore some of Bri's inspiration with a bit of my own. I know she can write volumes when she's in the groove, and I'm looking forward to playing this mod.
