    The Raven, Starfall Edition by Akitrie
    Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered, weak and weary,
    Over many a long and sleep-inducing post of Starfall lore—
    While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a bleeping,
    As of someone typing, messaging with his or her Discord.
    “’Tis some player,” I muttered, “messing around in global—
    Only this, and nothing more.”

    Ah, distinctly I remember it was in the warm September;
    And each separate excited player wrought its excitement upon their keyboards.
    Eagerly I wished the morrow;—no more would I have to sorrow
    From my gear that shrieked with sorrow—sorrow for the great Conversion—
    For the rare and epic drops that would succeed them—
    Nameless here for evermore.

    And the patchnotes put up by Ivar—
    Thrilled me—filled me with fantastic terrors never felt before;
    So that now, to still the beating of my toon’s heart, I stood repeating
    Calm down, calm down, there’s only a few hours left.

    Presently my soul grew stronger; hesitating then no longer,
    “Sarah,” said I, “or Otters, truly your forgiveness I implore;
    But the fact is I was preparing, and so majestically you pushed the date forward,
    And by so much time you let my vault organising time go to waste.
    That I scarce was sure I saw you ”—here I clicked on ‘New Posts’;—
    Emptiness there, and nothing more.

    Back into my server turning, all my soul within me burning,
    Soon again I saw a system message somewhat longer than before.
    “Surely,” said I, “surely that is something at server’s door;
    Let me see, then, what thereat is, and this mystery explore—
    Let my heart be still a moment and this mystery explore;—
    ’Tis the devs and nothing more!”

    Open here did the patcher, when, with many a forum post and stardust,
    In there stood a stately Star-child of the saintly days of yore;
    Not the least obeisance made she;
    But, with mien of lord or lady, stood regally in the crater—
    Brushing the dust off her blue, shining armour.
    Brushed, and stood, and nothing more.

    Then this Starchild beguiling my worried fancy into smiling,
    By the serious and stern decorum of the countenance she wore,
    “Though thy gnogpack be pretty,” I said, “art thou sure no bugs,
    Ghastly grim and ancient glitches wandering—
    Tell me what thy lordly name is on Starfall’s trademark zone!”
    Quoth the Starchild “The Starfall Zone.”

    Auf dem Rücken der Pferde... oder die Suche nach dem passenden Tier
    Phacs und Spinifex hatten gehört, es gäbe völlig neue Reittiere- endlich Abwechslung in
    den braunen Ackergäulen...Der junge Phacs hüpfte den ganzen Weg bis zur Pferdestation
    plappernd neben Spinifex her, beschrieb sein Wunschtier in glühenden Farben und
    fuchtelte und gestikulierte, dass er ein paarmal Spinifex fast den Hut vom Kopf riss.
    Als die beiden endlich beim Pferdehändler angekommen waren, fiel beiden erst mal der
    Unterkiefer herab- was es da alles zu sehen gab! Zebrapferde für Ost- und
    Westernreiten... (Google Translation: On the back of the horses ... or the search for the appropriate animal
    Phacs and Spinifex had heard that there were completely new equine animals - finally change in
    the brown horsepower ... The young Phacs bounced all the way to the horse station
    chattering beside Spinifex, described his desire animal in glowing colors and
    gesticulating and gesticulating that a few times Spinifex almost tore his hat from his head.
    When the two finally arrived at the horse dealer, both fell for the first time
    Lower jaw - what was there to see? Zebra horses for East and West
    Western riding …)

    Pferde die in 2 Richtungen gleichzeitig laufen können....(Horses that can run in 2 directions at the same time ....)

    und da war es auch schon, das ultimative Traumpferd für Phacs! (and there it was, the ultimate tramp for Phacs!)

    Mehr als einmal Probesitzen war leider nicht drin- dafür muss der junge Held noch
    ordentlich sparen...
    An der Tränke schien sich eine kleine Romanze zwischen Phacs Pferd Rosinante und
    einem gewitzten jungen Hengst zu ergeben... (More than once Probesitzen was unfortunately not in it, the young hero still has save money ...At the potions seemed a little romance between Phacs horse Rosinante and
    a smart young stallion ...)

    so dass die beiden schließlich so ins Dorf zurücktrabten...(so the two of them finally returned to the village …)

    Wie die Geschichte ausgeht- man weiß es nicht... Man munkelt, dass demnächst
    Wagenrennen nach antiker Art ins Spiel Einzug halten! (How the story goes - you do not know ... You rumblings that coming soon Antique car racing!)
