    • Haiku ...............is one of the most important forms of traditional Japanese poetry.
    • Lustria-Online is one of the most important forums of traditional war-gaming.
    This is too much of a coincidence to ignore.

    The Old Ones demand a L-O Haiku competition.
    Rules (made for breaking):
    • Haiku format - a 17-syllable verse form consisting of three metrical units of 5, 7, and 5 syllables.
    • Lustrian / Lizardmen / Seraphon Theme
    • Best Entries in as yet unspecified categories will be awarded prizes according to the whim of the judges (Son and Daughter of Bob)
    • Competition closes later. Or a bit after that

    Oh goody! This sounds like a lot of fun, and I happen to have a few L-O Haiku ready to go.


    our jungle swarms
    venom fangs strike at your feet
    they are evrywhere



    we kill in cold blood
    it is nothing personal
    it is the Great Plan



    The dark elves invade
    Lustrian jungle welcome
    who cleans up the mess?



    jungle package tour
    not as fun as expected
    I want a refund​

    The End Times cometh
    I listen to burning trees,
    watching doomful comets.

    Too much ixti grub
    Makes a Slann's belly potent;
    A cloud of regret.

    Slanputin responds
    Is it wisdom he provides?
    No. The usual.

    Age of Sigmar comes
    8th edition becomes nerfed
    Nightbringer's tears fall

    Bodies fall like leaves
    The heroes have all perished
    Darn you, Scalenex

    Words of ancient times
    Echos of a perfect plan
    it bids we listen

    Behold the pattern
    Heritage of the old ones
    Their will, our duty

    faithful we endure
    safeguard of the legacy
    Till the gods return​

    "Norse" is a one syllable word - one unit of sound.
    "Ignoramus" has four separate sounds.
    "Barbarian" is you.


    5. Here' is' a' hai'ku
    7. De'grad'ed' and' des'troyd
    5. By' a'pos'troph'ies


    You should be able to gøøgle the Dansk definition of Haiku. It will probably be spelt håïků. The best part is that you can mess with grammar and spelling to make the words fit and no one can correct you - because it is poetry.

    Vigilant saurus
    Waiting for the call to war
    No one calls for them

    Skink and troglodon
    Chosen of sotek, prophet
    Why don't we work right?

    Tiny and skittish
    Can't swing a sword very well
    This fight needs more skinks!

    A big sleepy frog
    Expensive elite saurus
    Oops! I just miscast!

    Fierce ripperdactyls
    Rip and tear their soft, white flesh
    "Lol, elves." Rippers die.

    Razordon unit
    Hand of glory, stand and shoot
    Never mind, snack time

    Saurus and cold ones
    Have lots of time to themselves
    Gold spears too pricy?

    Mounted scar vet charges
    "Fear my 1+ 4+ save!"
    Wait, how many ranks?

    Carnosaur: a noun
    Meaning "pricy death machine
    Wearing a bullseye"

    Fearsome kroxigor
    Horrible killing machines
    Babysat by skinks

    LawGnome has reviewed
    our mighty Lustrian force.
    Cynicism much?


    terradon takes flight
    flapping and squawking loudly
    spineburl is bad perch


    Above the treetops
    the temples cast long shadows
    cities of cold blood


    skaven prisoners
    dragged from their foetid tunnels
    offerings for Sotek​

    A heated debate
    echoes above Lustria:
    "Spear! No, Hand-weapon!"
