It was the beginning...
Fresh from the creators hand...
All things were a blank page...
Empty but anticipating the deep structure to be written therein...

Thought...
Life flurished within the universe...
Each life striving to attain...


Action...
Life consumed the nothingness, demanding all things...
be alive, hearing its call...


Deeds of Renown...
the striving for supremacy...

The ring of ever expanding shadows,
searching for ears hearing its call...
gifts from Chaos lay fallow,
as light stands a beacon for all...


Soon the young races wake,
swiftly find a path,
ancients quickly overtake,
those within their grasp...


Heed not the shadow cry!
Look not the way of light!
Search your own hearts,
find deep meaning of ancient sight!

'ware the wormholes,
links through space,
gifts from shadows
spread the taste,
'ware deaths embrace...

Shadows gather while Lightness fades
shadows linger and destroy the day
shadows corrupt, empires grow at play


'ware the path
to the shadows lair
accept their gifts
too much to dare

Power you have, but what price to pay
What friends keep darkness at bay
Under their feet you twist and stay

'ware, Heed the call
soon you will not be there at all...
Band together, strength to find
against the darkness
power to bind...

Woe, the scattered fleets of darkness born,
raze the deep, theirs the searing scorn,
Masters of their way, terror their horn,
Woe to those who can see,



"Here are my gifts my sweet,"
"soon, me, you will beat,"
aber deep within agonies heart,
darkness grows, the uncontested start...
Woe to those who count the ways,



Woe, the unwatchful gaze,
anticipating glories praise,
never suspect the deceitful maze...
Woe to those words to the wise,



"Join the war, emerge supreme,"
"together the spoils split between,"
aber strength from anothers lean,
creates puppetry internally unseen
Woe, to the power two,



Woe, cancerous growths, the shadow lair,
woe, the unresistant neighbor fair,
woe, the unwatchful eye,
woe, its spread,
soon awaits your buried dread...
Woe to those who now know the enemies tune...

Eeriness of Silence,
Savage acts of violence?
Black Darkness,
Tech at harness?
Prey to Lure,
Predator’s seize for sure?
Whilst calm,
Races at harm?
Pacts Aloft,
Against evil, maybe to stop?
Races Old,
Thy ties unfold?
Peace; All;
Before you fall!!!

Bringers of Order and Celestial Majesty,

Heed now the Oracle's Tale,


Mighty Races,
empires farflung,
at-last departed,
past rim and beyond,
two remained,
assist the new,
Order and Chaos,
division grew...

All this you know of old for true,



Chaos spreads...
influence abounds
power grows
ideaology profound...

Order's accuracy
lost its grasp
unfocused purpose
knowledge lacks...

Ware, your charge, soon to your comrade pass...



Knowledge, combat, wisdom supreme,
Generals of Old, Held in highest esteem,
Counsel knowledge paramount
know yourself and the other
fear no conflict with your brother...

Do you know their strength of arms?
Do you know their influence new?
Do you know their number true?



Avoiding what is,
conceive your own version to be
foolish Vorlons! AWAKE and SEE!
Your Death, Destruction looms over THEE!

Woe to those who make themselves see nothing
when darkness from galactic corners loom.

The power of order knows not at all
Himself, much less the Enemy,
The Enemy spreads,
Unknown the Enemy's MIGHT...
or from where the Enemy fights...
More the Shadows in the NIGHT...


Search the truth, Spy all light,
pierce the veil of spreading night
Number their stars, know your fey
all preperations fail you on that day.

Through the wormhole fly with glee
Knowing not where you’ll be
Instantly cross great divides
Chaos rewards adventurous strides.


Danger lurks in orderly advance
Predictable travel for all to glance
Unseen forces are close at hand
Can you fight what you cannot scan?


Trade with aliens before they pass by
Trust that you’ll get needed supply
Do not plan for every necessity
Chaos plans for missing luxury


The course of order is easy to predict
All the answers are not in view
Chaos envelopes orderly the orderly passage
Destruction waits at the end of the voyage




No trees were harmed in the making of this sig. However, many electrons were terribly inconvenienced

"Between the idea
And the reality
Between the motion
And the act
Falls the Shadow
For Thine is the Kingdom
Between the conception
And the creation
Between the emotion
And the response
Falls the Shadow
Life is very long
Between the desire
And the spasm
Between the potency
And the existence
Between the essence
And the descent
Falls the Shadow
For Thine is the Kingdom
For Thine is the Nubian
Life is Chaos
For Thine is the true Ideology,

This is the way the world ends
This is the way the world ends
This is the way the world ends
Not with a bang but a whimper."

Preperations must be made
15yrs ends the charade
doom, gloom, shadows fly
unite together, or all will die

Spread throughout the galaxy far,
ships, fleets, planets mar
all the races feel the taint
order considered quite quaint

Shadow fleets assault Orders space
scorning, scoffing, expressing distaste
futile,futile, its embrace
ashamed all will see its face...

Twilight beckons as darkness envelops
Shadows vanish, but are they gone

Chaos waxes and Shadows are dancing
Order wanes and Vorlons are trembling
Chaos enraged with Shadows boxing
Order retreats and Vorlons are alone


Idle shipyards are idle no more
Plowshare are forged into weapons of war
Disruptors installed and Armageddon magazines
Loaded into battleships at a furious pace


Ships launching, battleships, frigates and bombers
Headed to where the Vorlons cringe
To the north they fly their path unseen
To the west they fly to the Vorlons home


Shadowy fleets Desolate bound
Bringing Vorlons eternal peace

Woe to you, Shadow,
foe of peace,
gathering for battle
Resplendent the feast...

Galactic dominion sure
Technology unsurpassed
The long struggles now blur
end in sight at last



Hark now proud one,
chaos within chaotic plan
what cause for servents to run
spreading fear, the fire to fan,

Five the number of races share
deep within the shadow lair
partake of technology old
long before emergence from mold




Five to via, yet shadows lie,
gifts to those who soon must die,
woe to those by shadows side,
once caused terror, now defied

Alliances gathered from every star,
shadows taint not even a bar,
masticate the malice, paramount,
concenter the shadow fount,



What is a shadow bared,
what impediment to lights glare,
much less galactic focus occlude
once hidden, now protrudes.

In summation, the proud cold heart,
dominion keeper of the dark,
far-flung planets, shadows teem,
amass armadas, stars have not seen,



Dark the goal, servants scream,
chaos served, alliance reem
In the end, all is told,
fools they'll be, Home worlds cold

Ships so powerful a century ago
Now parked in rows ignored
Once so bright and full of glory
Now are tattered and full of woe

Victors over Vorlons in battles of yore
With weapons unequaled in power those days
Newer ships are forged with strength unmatched
Now these ignored bound for scrap not war

Intelligent ships now doomed to destruction
To loss not in battle, but to abandon

Cry out to their brethren now so sleek and strong
“Do not let us die alone in our sleep
Send us out to one final task
Better to die fighting Vorlons than burned with the trash”

So one final mission is given to these condemned
Set forth to Speed Bump deep in Vorlon’s lair
A mere stones throw from Desolate so close
Evade the Vorlons on your forlorn errand.

Proudly the fleet sails through space
Scarred and patched from past glories
Gladly sailing to meet their doom
To the cannons of Vorlons home place

All you seekers of wisdom and light: Let us unite together against the dark. Let us unite against the opaque creatures for they are a common foe and see no more than to cause chaos and destruction.

Only together we can............

For the reason of life…....together we must....and together we will.....

Such is said....in the book of wisdom.....
So it will be........
