Otters please, if I may,
A suggestion for this game we play,
There are places that are hardly seen,
Tucked away and in-between,
Off the path we often travel,
Away from roads and trampled gravel,
Overgrown and sometimes forgot,
Where purple quests will lead them not,
Or once discovered we quickly find,
We have out leveled from our grind,
Beautiful, amazing sights,
Deserving attention and challenging fights,
Oh how amazing would it be?
To venture to Grogul at ninety?
To enter the troll cave and barely survive?
Or the tavern basement at ninety-five?
Would it be a simple change?
To adjust these zones, to rearrange?
To make them a challenge for the best in the realm?
To send them in groups and then overwhelm?
With a flip of a switch you could newly ensnare,
Fresh travelers to places in need of some care.

Were you aware that in the Swamps of Grogul,
Slithering and skittering in that hellhole,
Where you must wade through heat and slime,
Are millions of bugs biding their time.
Some are small, but most are quite big,
With pincers and spikes that could skewer a pig,
They are breeding...and waiting...and patiently watching,
And one day quite soon soon they'll be advancing,
A swarm, an onslaught, a cresting tidal-crush,
Of cracking...and hissing..it drowns out the hush,
Of a world unprepared for six-legged vermin,
That enter your home bringing wanton destruction.
But continue your day! Ignore this new threat,
After all, its far away, unseen, unheard...not here yet,
You'll be safe in your bed, you'll be safe in your villa,
I'm sure my tale is quite mad - is that an antennae?

Writing the first poem reminded me of one of my other favorite poems about Grogul. I find that area fascinating and I'm incredibly sad that it's just a place I visit to hit bounties while rebirthing. There was no reason to visit it during my first thirty levels. There is no natural progression to it. It's kind of a place you discover later and by the time you do it doesn't really matter.

Omg, I’ve had a crappy long week, and just realized the second post was a different poem 🤦‍♂️

I feel inclined to reply to this thread
I feel compelled to do so in prose.
Composing such fills me with dread,
So I'll spare you the doggerel and send you this rose.

Well done, my Impish friend.
Great suggestion. (y)
