Diablo 3 Blue Posts » "Diablo Went Down to Tristram"

I wasn't sure where to put this, so I hope this forum is okay. Inspired by a tweet from @Diablo on Twitter. Apologies for anachronisms and inconsistencies; I serve the music, not the lore. ;-)

Diablo went down to Tristram, he was looking for a world to steal
He was kinda grim, thanks to Horadrim, he was willing to make a deal
When he came across this warrior twirling his swords and twirling em hot
And Diablo said, “Forget Leoric, I want what this kid’s got.

“I guess you didn’t know it, but I have your brother too
“And if you care to take a dare, I’ll make a bet with you.
“Now you swing a pretty good weapon, boy, but give Diablo his due.
“I bet Mephisto’s hold against your soul, cause I’m clearly better than you.”
The boy said “My name’s Aidan, and it might be a sin,
“But I’ll take your bet, and Albrecht get; now why don’t we begin?”

Aidan sharpen up your sword and shine your shield up well
Diablo’s come to Tristram and you’re playing this on Hell
And if you win, there will begin an age that shines like gold
But if you lose, Diablo owns your soul.

Aidan gemmed his doublet and he said “I’ll start this show”
And fire flew from his fingertips (pretty poor as magicks go)
And he swung his sword while Diablo roared and fended off attacks
Then he backed away and drank a pot to get his health to max.
When Diablo was quite finished, Aidan thought that he was done
But in his head, Diablo said “Why we’ve only just begun!”

“Fire in Khanduras, run boy run
“Diablo’s made a mess of old Tristram
“Now you’ve got the stone that’s got my soul
“But it’s gonna cost you quite a toll.”

Aidan bowed his head because he knew it was his place
And jammed that evil soulstone right into his bloody face.
Diablo said, “Aidan, come on back if you ever want to try again
“But wait till 2012 or so, cause the lore will make sense by then.”

This is truly glorious. Thanks for sharing your creativity with us!

For those of you not on Twitter, we recently posed the following question on @Diablo:
“If a bard were to sing a tale about your hero’s courageous deeds, what would the song be titled?”

"Diablo Went Down to Tristram," "Whirling through Evil," and "You're Going to Lose That Goblin" were some of my favorites. ;)

Just as a heads up:

You're now all official and stuff. ;)
