I received a literal orc-ton of great haikus (haikoes? haikues? Just haiku?) in my IGM. Unfortunately, there could be only, well, three. I decided to pick three winners instead of one. They each receive 50 prestige....

...that will be donated to their favorite charity. I kid. Check your balances, winners!

Here is the list of winners, in no particular order:

Rill's entry is just.... aww, you know. Pretty. Nice. Made me tear up. You know, orcs are sensitive.


Desert flame blossoms
Flower and fade in a day
Friends grow with the years


ajqtrz2's entry is hilarious. 


Jump the gun I did
"Illyriad Haiku?" oops,
I wrote of spring, sigh


Sir Edwin's is funny as well, but also uses the word "errors" which is our favorite word. Ever.


My build queue errors
Thankfully do not appear
On Global Rankings.


Grats winners!!

Here the ones we had to choose from:

Just Trying it Out:

A cat named Rikoo
Holds up a bag with prestige
Offers only bag

Mona Lisa:

Grow-ing my cow herds
Ma-king Sad-dles for Mar-shalls
Death rides swift-ly forth

Jane Darkmagic:

The cavalry charge
Ratlings die by the thousand
A beautiful day

Orxcis:

Gaming Crack is Illyriad
to the players who write
poem for 50 pretige

Heaper:

A storehouse too small
Veterans send caravans
Beware too much clay

Elias Knight:

Pondering the Orc,
A vision of brutal strength
crushing his hammer

Sir Edwin:

I send my cotters
Into legions of chargers
To relieve my stress

LaBeteVert:

Grand Illyriad!
Persistent, addictive game.
I love that you're free.

Kliingon:

Illy in Winter
donned with many new features
while some wait for gaffe

Knux:

Resources and Pop!
"Hold, ye" quoth the magic bear,
"Remember: have FUNN!!"

Alyrra:

Illyriad mystery game
Struggle, scheme, hunter, spies, assassins blade
Watchers Undying Flame

Knux:

Resources and Pop,
Hold, ye, quoth the magic bear,
Remember: have FUNN!!

Ser Taylonus: (2)

Seeking every day
Shy gypsy fortune teller
Where ever she lurks

Illyrians wait.
Winter winds in Westmarch blow,
Audrey slumbers on.

Marder:

the tears of king sigurd
brings on my fate
loose my head in illyria

ajqtrz2: (2)

(this one was his winner above)

Shimmered silver grass
wets our feet and comes back to
spring the morning dew

Grainne:

oh, Illyriad!
slow to build, quick to demo
ah....the prestige need!!!

LoupyLou:

We all love Illy
trading, diplomacy, war
Illy fun and friends

Delwyn:

Upgrading my mines
Friendly chat to pass the time
Eyes on an Empire!

Mahaut:

World of grid and tile
War machine, farmer and king
Growing endlessly

Corgak:

Sitting in the cold,
An Illyraid Haiku is told
By an Orc so Bold

Bresslyn:

Illyriad waits
Mammoths race for city walls
Rikoo doesn't code

Digioso:

Herbs Minerals Hides and Gold
found in the wide world of Illyriad
to keep in ones' vault

Berde:

Little lost Melder
     so long you have circled ‘round.
Beg the Devs for rest!

JodaMyth:

Illy is silly
The big orc Rikoo now knows
Where the prestige goes

Adrasteia:

Cornucopia
     Teaming with fetid rats
Skinners despise thee.

Alyrra: (2)

A love bruise
Wicked thought
Season of pain.

Cats are really soft,
Cats are really fluffy and playful.
Kittens are furry.

Duran:

It was Elgea,
A land of war and battle,
A land of promise, of hope.

TheDiva:

Illy is a game
of which none has been the same
On with Illy the game

Lagavulin:

Wake up, start Illy
Send harvesters across map
Note: drink coffee first
