It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Mordor  – Download the mp3 here
(Original Tune: “It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas” by Meredith Wilson)
Parody lyrics by Gordon McDonald & Jon Meek

 

It’s beginning to look a lot like Mordor
Everywhere we go
Takes a looks at that Mountain of Doomses, it’s looming and bringing us gloomses
With craggy peaks and lava river flows

It’s beginning to look a lot like Mordor
Orcses by the scoreses!
But a horrific sight to see is Sauron’s eye that will be
Searching for you (us!) once more

A pair of Uruk helmses and stinky clotheses
Is the wish of Master and the stupid, fat one!
Maggots get stuck and go on a ruck
Is the hope of Gorbag and Shag
And Aragorn can hardly wait for the Gate to open again
(Oh we don’t likes him do we Precious? No!)

It’s beginning to look a lot like Mordor
Everywhere you look around
There’s a spider in Cirith Ungol, a tricksy false Smé-a-gol (That’s us!)
He’s the sneaky one that doesn’t make a sound

It’s beginning to look a lot like Mordor
Soon the Wraithses will scream
And the thing that’ll make ‘em sing is by putting on the Precious
Haunts our every dream!

But a horrific sight to see is Sauron’s eye that will be
Searching for you (us!) once more!

Memories
By: Gordon McDonald

Memories go ever on and on
Over post and under tweet
In basements where ne’er sun has shone
By ‘casters on rare occasion meet
Over Winter Special’s song
Through Merry Pippin Christmas’ tune
Over quest and Discord throng
Against enemy card effect immune

Memories go ever on and on
Under tale of ice cream fav
Yet stories that wandering have gone
Turn at last ‘till point is made
Hands that decks have craft and hewn
And tested along the Anduin
Feel their last Burden and Boon
And come to rest at last, within

Memories go ever on and on,
From the ‘cast where it began
Now far ahead new memories dawn
And we must follow, if we can
Pursuing them with open hearts
Until we join again someday
Where many games and quests depart
And whither then? I cannot say

Episode 168.5 – LCG Con

Click here to download this episode!

Show Notes

This one is on us! In lieu of Gen Con this year Cardboard of the Rings participated in an online convention hosted on Discord called: League of Cooperative Gaming Convention. Or, LCG Con.

It was a smashing success and even though we were all apart, we still were mentally and physically exhausted from all the great times had by the end.

Join the hosts of CotR and Wandering Took (Mike) as we rehash the fun that was had.

Then Jon talks to members of the community Shellin (Eric), Vhalantru (Chris), Wandering Took (Mike again!), CavFan (Simon), RedSpiderr (Josh), and Jaywana (Jason) from all over the world about this great game we all love.

Thanks for being such a wonderful community to be a part of and please enjoy this non-Patreon supported episode.
