The Day that 6.0 Died

To the Tune of American Pie, Written by Forest Evergreen

A long, long time ago,
(I can still remember how those loopholes used to make me smile.)
And I knew if I had my chance,
That I could keep you down like France,
And even hold off armies, for a while.
But 2004 it made me shiver,
With each revision they’d deliver.
Bad news for the old guard.
They’d have to re-learn Amtgard.
I can’t remember if I cried
On April 1st, 2005.
But something touched me deep inside
The day that 6-0 died.

So bye, bye all you rules raping guys.
No more sphere to stop the rezzin
When your enemies die.
And those rules lawyers,
Like Logan, Sparhawk, and I,
Saying, “Now there new things I’ll have to try.”
“Now there new things I’ll have to try.”

Did you write the Druid class?
Did they have to take it up the ass?
Summons get dispelled ya know.
Now do you believe the spell point cost?
All our fire power has been lost.
So, Can ya teach me how to use a bow?

Well I know you love the color change
Purple warriors seem so strange.
I’m gonna pay my dues.
And try to change it back to blue.
I was a lonely teenage Healing guy
With 4 stuns per game that I could buy
6th level just made me cry
The day, that 6-0 died.

We were singing bye, bye all you rules raping guys.
No more sphere to stop the rezzing
When your enemies die.
And those rules lawyers,
Like Logan, Sparhawk, and I,
Saying, “Now there new things I’ll have to try.”
“Now there new things I’ll have to try.”

Now for ten years, we played 6 point 0
Now Pally’s have pro death ya know
But that’s not how it used to be.
When Delphos talked to the kings and queens
About reanimates for all APs
And the vote they took made him pleased.
Oh and while the vote was going down
Someone stole poor Elder’s crown
The, meeting was adjourned
Then the crown returned
And while Larin took the book apart
The play test happened in the park
And we had bardics in the dark
The day, that 6-0 died.

So bye, bye all you rules raping guys.
No more sphere to stop the rezzing
When your enemies die.
And those rules lawyers,
Like Logan, Sparhawk, and I,
Saying, “Now there new things I’ll have to try.”
“Now there new things I’ll have to try.”

Oh hackin slashin in our summer passion
The raider class got a strong reaction
Four weeks long as a newbie class
Man I laughed off my ass
When they said that daggers couldn’t slash
Against armor cause the stick jocks died too fast.
Oh the mountain air was sweet perfume
While bagpipes played a fighting tune.
A bard tried casting dance,
Oh but he never got the chance.
Cause the bards all tried to take the field
The APs were immune to yield
Do you recall what was revealed
The day, that 6-0 died.

So bye, bye all you rules raping guys.
No more sphere to stop the rezzing
When your enemies die.
And those rules lawyers,
Like Logan, Sparhawk, and I,
Saying, “Now there new things I’ll have to try.”
“Now there new things I’ll have to try.”

Now in there we were all in one place
With our credits lost in space
And no one wants to start again.
So come on Kerb be nimble, Kerb be quick
Gotta half sec, to land your stick
Cause the hybrid was the devil’s only friend
And as we read page after page
The players went into a rage.
They all began to yell
We hate this stoneskin spell.
And as the belts were pulled that had some white
To appease the grouchy knights
I saw Tolken laughing with delight
The day, that 6-0 died.

So bye, bye all you rules raping guys.
No more sphere to stop the rezzing
When your enemies die.
And those rules lawyers,
Like Logan, Sparhawk, and I,
Saying, “Now there new things I’ll have to try.”
“Now there new things I’ll have to try.”

I met a bard who sang the blues
And I asked her for some happy news
But she said “light blue?” and turned away.
And I went to World Banner Wars
Where I’d used my weapons years before,
But the reeve there said my daggers couldn’t play.
And in the streets the old guard screamed
The whiners cried but the newbies dreamed
They saw past the bullshit
7-0 was a good fit.

And the three men I admire most
Brennon,Roger, and of course the Phoc.
They made just one last E-Sam post
The day, that 6-0 died.
