OverMortal's New Single: The Life of a Pilot Update ID

OverMortal is currently on hiatus from the Forums and has channeled his energy into something more constructive. He's recorded a song for us. It's obvious quite a bit of effort went into this one. The lyrics are below so you can follow along.
Have you ever flown a fighter
Going 500 kps
With the turrets aiming at you
And your heart racing in your chest
Have you ever dropped a dumbfire
In a fralthi's first nacelle
Did you live to fly another day
Oh, the stories we could tell

The life of a pilot

Have you ever tailed a vaktoth
With your armor close to nill
Or got caught up in a furball
Where you racked up tons of kills

Chorus 1:
The life of a pilot, oh
The Kilrathi in your gunsights
The life of a pilot, oh
When your wingman saved your life
The life of a pilot

Did you ever fly a mission
With the autopilot off
Have you ever wondered if
A Kilrathis' fur is soft?
It's the things besides the killing
That keep insanity at bay
But the numbers are ten to one out there
And I like it fine that way

Chorus 2:
The life of a pilot, oh
Your next flight could be your last
The life of a pilot, oh
No mercy given; no mercy asked
The life of a pilot

Have you come back from a mission
With your wingman not in tow
Did you mourne them as a loved one
Did you hang your head down low
But for all the ones around us
And the ones we love back home
We will take it to the kittens
Cause it's up to us alone

Repeat Chorus 1&2

RPS Highlights Origin Fandom

Rock Paper Shotgun has run a neat article on longtime Origin collector Joe Garrity. There's a really interesting Q&A that delves into how Joe got started many years ago buying up spare copies of Ultima games and meeting with their creators. It also highlights some of the good work that fans have done to preserve historic material, such as our 2008 trip to archive Origin source documents at Mythic or the assistance Wingnuts gave Raylight to develop Prophecy for the Game Boy Advance.
