I have a quest for anyone who might call themselves bard one day:

Whoever would be bold enough to accept this quest would filk a particular song I have encountered, which means change the lyrics, and perform it at winter court!

This might seem silly cause the song is from a computer game.... but i thought it was nice. If anyone chooses to accept this assignment you can do anything you like with the song.... Yuo can take the ummming out if you don't think you're up to it for example, add extra verses, etc.... total freedom.

Here's the song I want filked : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QzHXt6n1QhM

I think the connection to why I thought this song should get filked should be obvious "we'll drive out the empire" it's too perfect to pass up :-)

Filking is something I've done on occasion and other lions have already done....and it is that to which we owe most of our lions songs. It is a lot easier than composing a song from scratch, and isn't at all the same thing.... but makes you feel like you were creative and it lets you change the theme or words of a song.

That means that the whole lyrics must be written to sound more humour-like.

To me, and for the purposes of this quest you don't actually have to make it funny, you just change some or all of the words to suit your purposes, like I changed the "Boreal Army Muster" into the "Lion Knight Muster"

But if you want it to be funny I won't stop you :-)

So keep the tune, change the words.
