Hey all!

We've just implemented a new version of our old forum ranks!

The new "Idle Villager" rank has some slightly limited abilities here in the forums, and they cannot post discussions or do things like post links or set a signature on their posts. When you have commented 3 times you'll reach the rank of "Scout Cavalry" and gain all the usual posting abilities! This is to help combat spam, and should not affect most of you, as you have likely already posted more than 5 times and have a higher rank:)

Check out the list of ranks here: https://forums.ageofempires.com/discussion/15139/forum-rank-system/p1?new=1

    Finally something for me. Here is my Haiku; it is called:

    Definition of Love

    I'll find you where I'm,

    Thou my memories, & the air;

    your hint is shelter.

    Today I would like to share with you an epic piece called "Aetas de imperiis" that I have translated to English. It tells a tale of a poet who challenges a priest to a battle of poems. The poem details the events leading up to the battle and not the poems themselves.

    Translating their poems to English does not give the poems enough credit. So I have found an image of their poems inscribed into clay. I have also found images of the tapestry showing the event, it shows the tradition of having villagers of the state to gather around and witness the event as well as a high priest to judge their poems.

    Here is the Villagers poem:

    Here is the Priests poem:

    With both poems now spoken, the high priest must now judge. But it is clear who has won.

    The priest is victorious this day.

    @Epid I like both of your haiku, very good and funny.
    @CoolestGaia yours is romantic, very nice.

    My bad it appears I mistranslated the haiku.
    "We stand before the God(s)" should be "We stand before God(s)"
    and
    "To battle in poems" should be "To duel in poems" or "Battle in poems" depending on how you translate it.

    Sorry :D

    As the weary daimyo leaned against the trunk of the tree and watched the cherry blossoms falling around him, his thoughts turned to his recent string of military defeats. How could these be explained? It could not be his army or his skills as a general. No, there must be other explanations. Being a man of great artistic talent, his thoughts naturally took the form of poetry.

    I present:

    Excuses: A collection of Haiku


    A graceless hillock
    Near my Town Centre arose.
    I shall abdicate!


    All citizenry
    At the beginning were male.
    I shall abdicate!


    To hunt a fierce boar
    A peasant sent; it slew him.
    I shall abdicate!


    Far too many birds
    Over mine kingdom did fly.
    I shall abdicate!

    Sorry for that mistake and I think I posted the picture version of my Haiku in a wrong way, because it just shows as small file at the bottom. Sorry for that, I hope you still like it :blush:
