I was looking through the various songs we have from TESO literature and gameplay, since I have two bardic characters I thought it would be nice to find some named songs for them. I decided to rework both 'The Age of...' songs from Skyrim to suit the current times and reflect what is happening in Tamriel. Its meant to be sung in the same manner as the original, I kept the syllables per line the same (hopefully). I imagine that each version expresses which fight whomever singing it feels is most important. Let me know what you think.

This version reflects the Nords fight against Molag Bal.

'The Age of the Dark Prince'

We drink to our youth, and to days come and gone. For the age of the Dark Prince is now nearly done.
We'll unhook his Anchors from this land that we own. With our blood and our steel we will take back our home.
All hail to Jorunn! You are the Skald King! In your great honour we drink and we sing.
We're the children of Skyrim, and we fight all our lives. And when Sovngarde beckons, every one of us dies!
But this land is ours and we'll see it wiped clean. Of the scourge that has sullied our hopes and our dreams.



This one is more reflective of the Nords ambitions for the Empire and the view that theirs was the first Empire.

'The Age of the Empire'

We drink to our youth, to days come and gone. For the age of the Empire is just about done.
We'll drive out the Rape God and restore what we own. With our blood and our steel we'll take back our home.
Down with the Tharn’s, pawns of the Dark Prince. On the day of their death we'll drink and we'll sing.
We're the children of Skyrim, and we fight all our lives. And when Sovngarde beckons, every one of us dies!
But this land is ours and we'll see it wiped clean. Of the scourge that has sullied our hopes and our dreams.
