Poe is a bard who can be found in the Firewine Bridge area, midway across the bridge itself. If allowed, he will sing a legend about the souls of knights found in the Firewine Ruins.

Poe's poemEdit

I've a tale, a tale to tell
of knights so bold and dungeon hell and slumber broke upon the shore
of nightmare's reef when dawn no more.
A story true of courage lack, 
and footing lost on virtues track and trailing far but near to fear
a vengeance scream through night to ear.
The swordsmen came by two and four
to take their fight to evil's core with confidence in might and right
went bravely forward spreading light.
But light alone canst clear the path
when suffers all a hellish wrath from deep below whence fires came,
still none above dare speak the name.
Together fought, together fell
till good had won, though stories tell the cursed tale of treachery
when evil stole the victory.
Heroes bold betrayed behind
from friend made foe with gold in mind to take and plunder riches won.
'Twas evil new, though old undone.
In glory slept the hero knights
but knife to throat did snuff the lights behind their eyes, a simple deed.
'Twas honor dead as killed by greed.
Strong enough to break a vow,
alone with gold he struggled now to leave his dungeon deed and hide.
Alone he fell; alone he died. 
Widows weep and orphans cry 
and bards oft sing as maidens sigh for want of heroes lost below
that haunt in sleep with ghostly glow.
On guard the guard eternal stand
though neither see nor sense the land before their eyes beyond their age
they wait with unbelieving rage.
When one for all turns all for one
the injured souls take solace none in death's release so stand they will,
'til honor's need someone dost fill.
Together enter, together fall.
'Tis as the vow agreed by all and all must stand and wait in time
for one that ran to face the crime.
His epic done, he continues:
I have not been, but have been told of knights of days gone past so bold to warrant heartfelt prayers from thee, that rogue's return might set them free.
  • 1:-An interesting piece, young bard. Is there any truth behind it?
Ahh, but there is some truth in everything, is there not? I cannot attest to the validity of the tale itself, as I have only culled from hearsay. I only know for certain that it makes for good patronage when I pass my hat. Strikes a chord with many, it does.
  • 2:-A piece of tripe the likes of which I shall be grateful never to hear again!
  • 3:-A rousing tale! Please, take this 10 gold that I might finance your further travels.
(dialog continues, but too much is enough)


  • Despite claiming that Firewine was destroyed "some 300 years past," it was, in fact, destroyed around 1168 DR - 200 years before the events of the game.
