Let's Get Started!

We have our own Flight Rising haiku to share with you:


Unscheduled downtime!
A sudden late night scramble!
Check if it's plugged in.


---

Bonding familiars,
one more click to awakened!
What?! Mistakes were made.


---

Quality of Life—
It's the little things that count:
filter lair by breed.


---

Spirited spirals
spin within a starry sky—
Space spaghetti!


---

Mirrors have four eyes,
readers of colors and heat.
Eyeburners abound!


---

Acquisitive Crim
collects baubles and trinkets.
Pinkerton's torment.


---

Frazzled Fiona,
True friend of familiars and—
Uh oh, Prudence, no!

This never happens to me.
Well, not normally

Brownie looks lovely-
With a hat, he looks better!
..Like all Mirrors, too.

Posting in the forums,
Oh, look! An interesting game!
I play, and get ninja'd.

It can't be - Tidelord is back?
Oh wait, it's just a plain old
Shadow in the sea

Grinding in the mire,
Was that an eliminate?
Just another scratch.

I may have messed up the syllables but I think this works?

Edit: I did mess up the syllables! Thanks to Milohilay for pointing it out to me and suggesting some alternative words!!

Flying through the sky
Fires burn the ground alive
The bane has returned

(Both one for dragons in general but also for banescale releasing.)

Glittering gold coins,
Light in the shadows, gripping,
Burning flame, ashes.
