The Crystal Empire Trilogy
– Ponies with Battlelore
Blind Greed (Fall of the Empire)
Tower rose in the winter night
Traveler's beacon in the arctic fields
Once it shone from the northern land
Mellowing the coldest of winds
"No constraints of flesh

My day of return will come
From the deep ice I rise once more…"

Burden of memory relived once again
Where ends your greed If you'll turn them to ruins…

From the deeps I'll rise and take my own…"
