The Dwarven Rifleman's Creed

Post by Ringo Flinthammer » 27 Apr 2008 04:41 pm

This is my rifle. There are many like it but this one is mine. My rifle is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I master my life. My rifle, without me is useless. Without my rifle, I am useless. I must fire my rifle true. I must shoot straighter than any enemy who is trying to kill me. I must shoot him before he shoots me. I will.

My rifle and myself know that what counts in this war is not the rounds we fire, the noise of our burst, nor the smoke we make. We know that it is the hits that count. We will hit.

My rifle is dwarven, even as I, because it is my life. Thus, I will learn it as a brother. I will learn its weakness, its strength, its parts, its accessories, its sights and its barrel. I will keep my rifle clean and ready, even as I am clean and ready. We will become part of each other. We will.

Before Khaz'goroth, I swear this creed. My rifle and myself are the defenders of my country. We are the masters of our enemy. We are the saviors of my life. So be it, until victory is Khaz Modan's and there is no enemy, but peace.

This is sort of a note to myself, much like the prayer is, so I can use it at some later date. (The wedding vows were used by Beli for an in-game wedding.)

I am new to this site, but I must post on this older topic. I am a former active duty Marine and I remember reciting the original creed. This is good and fits well. Roarithaar Swiftaxe, Hunter of the Horde, would love this and also resite it often!
