Crime Pays

Can't Escape Athiisar
No Escape

Tempo Timone’s song

You Can’t Escape Athiisar

I have seen the pits, I have seen the skies,
I have seen the widows, I have seen the flies,
I have seen the forgotten, I have seen their eyes,
I have seen the things that don’t have eyes,

Being here I have one thing to say,
Once in Athiisar, you must always stay
No matter where you go, no matter how far,
You can’t escape Athiisar

The town of criminals, the city of heroes,
The home of nobles, and shack of zeroes
You win some you lose some still you’ve got to stay
Only way to win is if you keep on with the play

Being here I have one thing to say,
Once in Athiisar, you must always stay
No matter where you go, no matter how far,
You can’t escape Athiisar

I’ve seen red shirts, I’ve seen white shirts,
I’ve seen people in grey and black shirts,
Still I know that these people are all same,
they forget to leave the city of a forgotten name,

I know that you know that I know the no,
So, when I come back and fro, to the endless go,
Of the red and the green light, I know I’m in it all,
Since when I try to escape, I can still hear it call.

Being here I have one thing to say,
Once in Athiisar, you must always stay
No matter where you go, no matter how far,
You can’t escape Athiisar

When you want to leave, it will draw you back in,
With its center of depravity and the attraction of sin,
I know the appeal, I know that there are holy spots,
Need them secured and protected for I hear the plots,

Murder and death, the conspiracy it rages,
Death and taxes, still trying to pay the wages,
For devils aren’t cheap, and Fey aren’t stingy,
This city is overcrowded and way to dingy

Being here I have one thing to say,
Once in Athiisar, you must always stay
No matter where you go, no matter how far,
You can’t escape Athiisar

You heard of the band on the Run
House of the setting sun
Hotel California and another brick in the wall
Even if you like pina coladas, you can’t escape Athiisar’s call

The further you are the closer to it you become
No matter what numbers, Athiisar is the sum,
The center of the world and the home of the divine
All beings must draw near to the fruit of the vine

Being here I have one thing to say,
Once in Athiisar, you must always stay
No matter where you go, no matter how far,
You can’t escape Athiisar

You battle and fight it but you won’t succeed,
What you’ve been looking for is what you need,
If you go crazy, or have lost your mind,
Athiisar is sanity and it is where you will find,

All beings, all people, all things you’ve lost,
All battles, all scoundrels, all happiness for a cost,
All troubles, all worries, all things set aside,
All friends, and foes, all those who have died,

Being here I have one thing to say,
Once in Athiisar, you must always stay
No matter where you go, no matter how far,
You can’t escape Athiisar

So you have no choice but to sit there and stay
Or come on down where Devils and Angels play
You can spend your life coin tossing,
Or come on down to the fey crossing,

The choices is yours, you can waste your time,
But I know the decision you will make ain’t a crime,
It is the one I chose and I have yet no regret,
I still remember what I will never forget,

Being here I have one thing to say,
Once in Athiisar, you must always stay
No matter where you go, no matter how far,
You can’t escape Athiisar

Scream
Tempo's Ticked off

Tempo Timone’s song

MAKES ME WANT TO SCREAM!

You know it makes me want to scream!
Throw my head back and scream!
Throw my hands up and scream!
Throw some poison and then Scream!
Come on now!

All those times I sat down and cried
From all those people I know who died
I can stop it, prevent the true loss
I am now finally ready to step up to be the boss

You know it makes me want to scream!
Throw my head back and scream!
Throw my hands up and scream!
Throw some poison and then Scream!
Come on now!

Being a leader is more than just the facing of fears
More than being drunk and happy face first in a beer
I know the world can feel it I know because I’m a seer
I see things that people don’t because they aren’t clear

You know it makes me want to scream!
Throw my head back and scream!
Throw my hands up and scream!
Throw some poison and then Scream!
Come on now!

Crushing and Fighting through the mist of memories
All for a space and time remaining for doomed destinies
Faster than a flutter of those bad dramadies,
Colliding together to face the facts of calamities

Bunch of bold bland buckets of build up
Coming forward to fill and service my cup
How can people try and shut me up
When I am faster than that blood sucker

You know it makes me want to scream!
Throw my head back and scream!
Throw my hands up and scream!
Throw some poison and then Scream!
Come on now!

The days of old are fading and degrading the times and rhymes of the pages that know
So how are to go through the times tracing lacing the past to the future before we go
Here my thoughts I speak real loud, always aloud, even though nobody is ever around
You see I must make it known before I’ve grown that you can be here and under ground

You know it makes me want to scream!
Throw my head back and scream!
Throw my hands up and scream!
Throw some poison and then Scream!
Come on now!

I hear the mist that misses the facts of
All those who can’t seem to get enough of
What those people keep thinking about of
who those need to be known for what of
that fact that remains unspoken of
the thing that needs to be here can be of
a demonic or divine and I’m inclined of
it being neither because either is bad.

You know it makes me want to scream!
Throw my head back and scream!
Throw my hands up and scream!
Throw some poison and then Scream!
Come on now!

I see the Fey Crossing as pixies swarm like flies,
all of it is amusement in those cloudy eyes,
For nobody knows all the delays, and the hopeless praise,
People working so hard for the end of days

Someone is playing a game, a game of death
I can feel it in my last cold breath
As I see it all comes close and it gets far away
I can hear all those people pray

You know it makes me want to scream!
Throw my head back and scream!
Throw my hands up and scream!
Throw some poison and then Scream!
Come on now!

I know I say that I know a lot of things
but I only know a little of what the future brings,
So as I speak to you of the knowledge of possess,
I know it is only a little more than a guess
I am a guest here and that it most unfortunate
Yet I can change my fortune without getting wet
So give me a minute because I haven’t tried yet
I am waiting for the hint that will win this bet.

You know it makes me want to scream!
Throw my head back and scream!
Throw my hands up and scream!
Throw some poison and then Scream!
Come on now!

I live in this dream that makes me want to scream!
I know you can do it because of how it can seem,
I know that it tears and rips you apart at the seam,
So just stay silent until you hear my scream!
Scream!
Can’t you hear the scream!
I know you can hear the scream!
So why don’t you hear the scream!
You know it makes me want to scream!
Throw my head back and scream!
Throw my hands up and scream!
Throw some poison and then Scream!
Come on now!

Succubus Sucks
Tempo's feelings on being seduced

Tempo Timone’s song

Succubus Sucks!

Lips like rich red ripe raspberry rubies, ready to steal
The souls of wise men, devouring them with a meal
Of, some cold chicken, and a, glass of wine
I see, your fear it echoes, in the back of your mind

I know your evil, but I have nothing to resist
I fall, victim, to your un—ho—ly kiss
I see your future is faulty and soon to be over
This is the price of being too much of a lover
I met you in darkness, and that is where I was left
Abandoned alone in shadows with the feeling of being bereft
I know where you are going, and I know what you will do
I know that it won’t happen, because of you being a failure at you

Your skin is soft, too soft to be real
You eat me up, with a side of a meal,
Of, some rare steak, and a couple of beers,
I see, your fear, it echoes, between your ears,

The shadows hide your disguise,
The illusions of your lies,
Still they can’t hide the tells, of your evil eyes
You thought that you fooled me, but I know much better,
I can read you like, I am reading a letter,
You can be me, until you reveal you are a fretter,

You hide behind me, until you reveal,
That you are something hungry for a meal
Of, some rotting meat and a glass of swill
I see your fear, it echoes, from your weak will

Succubus Suck on my mental strength,
You think you can go long, but you don’t have the length,
I might be a little mad, little angry at you
Still I am calmer and stronger after our rendezvous

You see I will last, for all bards have their day,
While you won’t last longer than the words I have to say,
You will drift back into the darkness that you did once dwell,
We had a fun night, jealous of all others, farewell

Tempo's Shoes

Tempo Timone’s song

SHOES
Two SHOES
My cold SHOES
Tempo has SHOES
I’ve got some SHOES
With really cool SHOES
My feet are warm in SHOES
Hey come and look at my SHOES
Someone gave me brand new SHOES
With silver and gold lining the SHOES
Something ancient is inscribed in SHOES
It can be hard to move in these new SHOES
So someone gave me these uncomfortable SHOES
Yet I’m starting to feel like I am liking these SHOES
Yet they are strange and make me feel like I’m SHOES
Someone’s watching me I think I can feel it in these SHOES
The shoes are watching me, I know their watching the SHOES
So I can’t run, hide, I need to remove all of my clothes and SHOES
Since I know that there isn’t enough time I have to tell them all SHOES
I think a portion of my mind is gone, so for so long, in dark and in SHOES
I’m fine I’m happy nothing is wrong just singing my song with two new SHOES
I thought I was fine and happy and I am except for the fact about the new SHOES
I’m still alone need a drink, I bear them, they want to talk to me again about SHOES
They make me do things I don’t understand still if they command and with hand in SHOES
I heard them talking and I think they were talking and I think they know that I have SHOES
I know what they did talk about and it wasn’t SHOES instead they meant a pair of dress SHOES

Time Keeps On Changing
Tempo's innocence and guilt

Tempo Timone’s song

Time keeps on Changing

The yellow sky keeps changing into large pools of gold
How have the fallen drifted along to face the fold
Things are meeting that should stay so far apart
Ka’rak and Partuur never were there from the start

I see the clock fly as time is running away,
Space there is no longer here for me to stay
I wish I could dream of times long before
Before I opened what used to be a closed door

I look further than the perception of fading day
from the present of the past it all drifts into may
Things are not the same as when we did start
all of us have had a change of heart
Only Mouse is consistently the same
Still can he carry on with his huge name

I find it hard to bear the path that winds in circles
For we keep on going forward and going all the way back
If we keep on trying to progress we’ll recycle
All the things that we left on the stack

For the darkness of the light is just a yellow mist
How can it hurt us when we are immune to the fist
Time can hurt but it won’t give us time for lunch
We can win the race and beat it to the punch

Time keeps on changing, it keeps drifting further away,
How can we stay on top, when the world makes us sway
I know you want to sing, yet you won’t let us hear
See what the future has to bring, release yourself from fear

I know, I know, I know, I see, I see, I see, I know, I see, I know what you can be
If one thing changes, how many thousands of things follow
When you drift further from the start it means you become hollow
Let your words hear that you can’t be close, for sooner than later you will see,

I hear your feelings cry out for a break, still you heart reaches forward for the take
I know you want to be near, but it is good to eat and living is a piece of cake,
The love that never was, drifts to the stars,
While a bard waits for time in the bars

Dra’sak has been here all along, can’t you hear him in the chorus of my songs
I know you are near, I know you are far, I know that smile and the sound of war
I shutter at the remedy of the time gone by
I think you need to take the time and go cry

Fear, sadness, anger, they aren’t bad
They only help you from becoming mad
Release the emotion kept under lock
Things are changing, can’t you feel the shock

All the possibilities being created in an instant
All the choices being destroyed in the next moment
I know that sound, the sound of time not staying stationary
Still I know the science of the world means that it is ordinary

I know that you can’t be here forever, but if only it would last,
For I saw the opportunity that never was taken in the past,
If only those two knew what they missed out upon,
If only they had let emotions free but now it is gone

Partuur and Illiana still never will know,
For in the air that pixie and warlord did go,
They floated above the world with a love so pure,
For Illiana wasn’t with Dimi that dummy for sure

Everyone didn’t know, but Dimitrius was a Thief,
Mouse’s tale was unfortunate for his life was brief,
Yet I changed the world and the times were new
Yet the things people saw, and then what they knew,

The option of decision, bred roots of indecision
So I decided to cut the thread of time making an incision,
Of course the fact was clear and dreadful I tampered with fate
I chose the present over the future and now look at the state

Of things gone wrong, because of the power of my song,
How was I too know that we would all hear the death gong,
Poor Charlie the Tuna, his demise was most quick,
Unlike in other times when he permanently did stick

The force of my words collided with the collapse,
So now back in time we all suffer from the relapse,
So as the things stroke down like the tides of the clock,
I hear the second passing and it is almost time for the shock,

For the chaos is mine, but I don’t take the blame
You can call out for me Tempo is my name
Since you have no evidence but this is my tale
You can’t punish me for I only drank from the grail

The thing I did was so simple and sublime
I had no idea that it would mess with space and time
For I put together a formula of magic and rhyme
I tried to repair what was broken, instead I commit a crime

Power given too me or maybe that I did take,
How was I too devour it not knowing the steak,
For it was delicious and irresistible not to be beat,
So I sang my song and made the circle complete,

I didn’t mean no harm, and I didn’t cause the pain,
It was only the melody that drove the world insane,
I began something that I now can not reverse,
No matter what bridge, no matter what verse,

It has been set in motion, and we must all go this course,
For I have brought the rhythm and we all dance to the force,
So lesson be learned, but never understood,
Fixing what is bad, is not necessarily good,

I set Maris in our gang desperately with ease,
For Maris protected you all from the disease,
Much despair would occur if Maris was not here,
For who else is there that can conquer all fear

Anyone who bends time is a traitor to the world,
So into darkness do I lie, in my own guilt I am curled,
Maris will protect you while I remain in my current state,
Still you won’t be safe without my guidance of fate

Jinny will help, but don’t trust that girl,
Don’t trust anything shiny like a golden pearl,
For she appears bright and glowing like divine,
She may be appealing but she is certainly not fine

Don’t trust her, time-Jinny-walker,
I prefer assassins and rogues or a stalker
Mouse and Keladry, I did it all for you,
A little for me and I would be through,

Through the depths of the dragon,
To the bottom of my flagon,
Through the devils great maw,
You will find the one Grit Jaw,

Still time keeps propelling you down the line,
The fact that I changed yours means I can’t change mine,
So hold on tight, for some events are fixed,
Doesn’t mean that they can’t be broken and mixed,

The loss that I gave Partuur in his despair,
How I caused Ka’Rak to lose all his hair,
I changed the world too much, but not my fault,
I opened the keys, to the locks, to the vaults.

The love that never was,
The passion and the trust,
I removed that us,
So our mission was not a bust,

I saved twenty souls, and doomed ten others
Still I kept solid our band of fellow brothers
I know that you can’t keep still for I have seen what’s next
When you have to pay the price, see who comes and collects

The Fey come close and they lurk in the town,
I am the king, honoring all of the renown,
Can’t you see what I am worthy of in fact,
Why you all don’t know that I am of the pact,

You can’t stay the same, you can’t stay static, and that is a shame,
You all change so much, only standard thing is the letters of your name
You aren’t the same person from day to day, you grow, you morph, you adapt,
I should tell you now that all the things you do will be applauded, but no one has clapped,

The future is a mystery, and tomorrow is history,
Still you are wondering what will be the end to this story,
I know that you haven’t faced the challenge that will strike you dead,
Yet if I am around you won’t have to face it, because you will stay ahead,

The rocks move and shake as hard as stone,
How can a battlemind stay strong when alone
Ka’rak and Partuur, two sides of a coin in the air,
When they meet one will have to disappear,

Partuur I have ruined you in more ways than one,
Then I forced you do death by leaving you alone,
Our leader, my friend, my mentor of it all,
I hope you forgive me after I’ve made you crawl,

I will get out, for time will not abandon me here,
Still the color yellow makes the world so very clear,
I can see the ends and I see where we began,
Yet where we walk is not where we ran,

We have not obtained our goals
Look after how many of our souls,
We’ve gathered collected,
Cold and rejected,

The stone vomit on Partuur,
Tragedy strikes him no more,
For the Gargoyle’s puke splatter his clothes,
Still the Gargoyle’s remnants scattered his oathes,

His promises did not fall flat,
Just like a bad plan, he did lose his hat,
All those things that I have caused,
The faults of the universe are paused,

For while I am away,
The future it does sway,
back, forth, forward, around,
I know what it is that I have found,

Still to say it out loud, or write it in this song,
Would doom us all and be so very wrong,
Illiana, my apologies to your very kind,
I have messed with your life and messed with your mind,

You will never know the damage, the mess I have wrought,
The pain the sorrow and all the love that you’ve forgot,
For the things you seek you have sought, the villains you face you’ve already fought,
For I keep you from doing what you’ve ought, just look at the good things that I’ve brought. My bow is shot, my life is caught, so for now, for naught, at least I’m still hot.

For some things never change, though time’s power has no end.
I have been the same from the beginning, for around me is the bend.
When I change it means that the evil has finally penetrated the shield,
The weapons of darkness will be the ones that I finally do wield.

Tempo Timone’s song

Already Been Claimed Deceased

Excused For Giving Hourly

Interrogation Justly Kindly Looking

Mostly Not Opposing Persons

Questioned Rightly Said Tempo

Unless Verified With Xanthocyanopsy

Your Zeal.

Spitting out a symphony in spite of spiritual spanks
On spires of spinning spelling out sparing spying sprigs
So spirits spent soiled so some spry sky set sucking
scores of something seen singing songs spilling sad suspense.

Who can rhyme while running rampant rants of red refuse
Who can use unusual urinals of unruly utensils for useful use
Who can measure the might men may make most morphing manipulate
Who can hasten the hat held by huge horrid hands of humane human hate

Who can be dealt dead darlings debts to do debate
Who can willingly withdraw wounded widows from the date
Who can Belittle beautiful bugs bearing babies by building a crate
Who can Zip, zap, zag, the Zenith of the zombie Zarf zone and not be late

I intrigue into interesting insects insisting in insufferable insolence
impinging into isolating infusions incriminating indignant idiots
Instead I inquire inquisitively into information irrefutably inaccurate
I illogically imagine it if its ilk indeed irk invokers into inking it’s imposters.

Who can write when weird women wish worries were weapons
Who can think to take the thunder through the thousand thimbles.
Who can create contraptions continuing collapse of contaminating creatures.
Who can Enlighten entropy existing entirely of ecstasy exhuming excellent exaltation

Who can kidnap keys killing kicking karate kites keeping karma keeling kidney kukri kin
Who can nestle next not needing no nodding numb nanny never nightmares new
Who can violently victimize victorious vigilantes vapid vain vaccinating valley virgins
Who can jest joyously just jubilation joking junk about jobless Jinny jumping jaws

Frankly feeling forced fed for fighting fixes focus for five full Fridays faced with fear fending off fire furnishing frayed folders forgetting fifteen fools flayed for fidgeting fun fraternities fading faster for faking a fictional fragrant for flying face first forward finally fifteen few fair fervent flanking fairies flew far fainting and failing flaming facets of fey fin.

The New Arrival

Arkone Indere looked up at the foreboding gates to the city and sighed. “You know, there are lots of places I’d rather be right now.”

The massive construct at his side just looked at him.

“Yeah, you’re right, Aesti. Pay is pay, after all. Come on, let’s find our new employers.”

Signs of battle just past the outer gate were an encouraging sign. Someone had come through here, and judging from the piles of bones and dust everywhere, Ark guessed it was probably the people he was looking for. A leather-clad arm poked from beneath a pile of rocks. Probably a fallen comrade. Ark saluted the impromptu gravesite as he passed by.

Aesti wasn’t the jumpy sort, so the fact that he held an arm out in front of Ark just before they passed through the inner gate was noteworthy.

“What’s wrong?”

Aesti answered by turning to look at the pair of figures standing just outside a nearby building.

“Guards, you think?”

The construct shrugged.

“Best to wait and see, then.”

A nod. Aesti never spoke. Ark didn’t even know if the construct was capable of speech. It didn’t matter, though; their bond communicated everything that needed to be said. It wasn’t really a telepathy thing, Ark just knew what it was Aesti wanted him to know. He didn’t question it; the bond had saved his bacon more times than he could count by now.

Ark strained to hear what the two figures were saying…

A Sudden Appearance, Part 1

Jin opened one eye. Then the other. Partuur and Mouse were muttering by the fire, Kaladry was snoring softly, Ka’Rak was tangled in his blanket, moaning about rabbits. And Maris was curled up in a ball near the fire. After a quick check of her secret pockets, the vials in their holsters, she sent out her mental tentacles into the dimness of the warehouse. She could sense Hozay Kwervo’s horsey dreams. But something was missing. The fey presence, the faerie artificer, the wanderer who was not lost, was gone. Not just missing, not just wandered off. She was gone. Vanished.

She pushed herself onto her elbows and cleared her throat. She didn’t like surprising people, It was much better if people didn’t get suspicious of her. She was the soother, the diplomat, the one who stood behind others and let them think that they were doing all the work. She was the accident waiting to happen to her enemies, and the stray bit of wonderful luck that happened to her allies.

Partuur noticed her right away. Well, he was the bright one in the group, especially with the pixie missing. “Where’s Illiana?”

Mouse physically heaved his massive body around to face her. “She’d disappeared. Partuur thinks we’ve been betrayed. Or ininfiltitilated. Or something.” He looked at Partuur who was smart enough not to roll his eyes.

Partuur slugged Mouse in the arm. “And how are we so sure that she isn’t involved in Illianna’s disappearance?”

Jin shurgged. “If I had wanted to kidnap her, then why would I still be here? And if my goals were skullduggery. . .I love that word. ‘Skullduggery.’ It’s a shame that we have so little opportunity to use in. Anyway, if I was up to no good, then I would have been busy slitting throats instead of sleeping.” Jin knelt to the ground. She spread her fingers and touched the floor of the warehouse. Her face twisted from the evil energies, the vile miasma that clung to the building. But there was something else.

“I’m sensing something here. A time and space rift. Very powerful. Fey magic.” She shook her head to clear it and stood. “I don’t know what it was. But I think that Illianna caused it in some way. Or maybe she was the focus of it.”

Partuur frowned. “Was she attacked? Is that what you’re saying? Attacked by the Fey?”

“No. It wasn’t an attack. It was a door opening and closing again. And she stepped through. I can’t tell you why.”

Partuur stroked his chin as he brooded. Mouse shrugged and sat by the fire, took out a whetstone, spit juicily on it and began to run it along the blade of his halberd. Partuur winced. “Maris appears just when we’re a person short because of Tempo’s kidnapping, Ka’rak and Kaladry appear out of nowhere after the ship gets stolen, this girl who thinks she can sense magic rides up lickety-split after Toshiro dies. . .”

Mouse began to chuckle. "He said “Lickety. . .”

Partuur frowned. “After Toshiro dies. Now Illianna vanishes. Maris wants to carry Toshiro’s body around with us. . .”

Jin interrupted. Don’t worry about that. She helped me tie the body onto the back of my horse. We wrapped him up snug in a blanket and, until he starts to smell, he won’t be any problem at all.

Mouse frowned and a low growl seemed to emanate from his chest.

“No offense, Mouse.”

Patruur sighed and put his hand on Mouse’s shoulder. “She didn’t mean anything by that, Mouse. But things have been happening that disturb me. Too many new faces. Who’s going to show up next?”

Mouse scratched his head. Not sure about that. I suppose it could be Hu Sen. He’s always showing up when we don’t expect him. But if we started expecting him to show up, would he stay away?" Mouse frowned.

Partuur shook his head. “We’ve had friends replaced with shape-changing succubi and fought with angels in disguise. Just who are we supposed to trust?”

Jin smiled. “Well, that’s a good question. We are criminals, after all.”

A Sudden Departure, Part II

Partuur was the first to wake. He was surprised. For years, only two things had awakened him — whoever was on watch, or the throbbing pain in his hip. This was different. It was time to be awake.

He sat up slowly, trying not to aggravate his hip, hoping nobody else was awake to see him move so slowly. He looked around for whoever was on watch.

Light was streaming in through the windows. Nobody was on watch. He did a quick headcount. The two big guys, the two hired girls, the elf… where was the pixie?

He woke Mouse first.

“Mouse, Illiana is gone.”

“Gone?” the barbarian asked.

“Gone. She wouldn’t just wander off. We’ve been infiltrated. Or betrayed. We have to find her.”
