i love the word "smote"
Through fire and water. From the lowest dungeon to the highest peak I fought...
Until at last I threw down my enemy and smote his ruin upon the mountain side.
Darkness took me and I strayed away through thought and time. Stars wheeled overhead and every day was as long as a life age of the earth.
But it was not the end. I felt life in me again. I've been sent back until my task is done.
