An idea popped into my head today, if David Gemmell’s Druss had his Iron Code, then couldn’t Snaga his demon possessed axe have its own counter code. I give you The Yielding Code of Snaga.
The Iron Code of Druss the Legend
Never violate a woman, nor harm a child.
Do not lie, cheat or steal. These things are for lesser men.
Protect the weak against the evil strong.
And never allow thoughts of gain to lead you into the pursuit of evil.
The Yielding Code of Snaga
Despair and abuse, a spoil to mother and child.
Bittersweet edge, copper wet and crimson bloom.
Weak, feeble and lusting, all men fall to me.
Bone and blood, gold and ghosts I gather all under my blade.
Wanton, joyless, sovereign of the axe,
an end to flesh, each soul to reap.
