Something about this bloggie

Ok, I admit that I've failed somewhere before. But anyway welcome. Just a brief intro on what you should expect here:
1. Football. Not gonna post much of that any soon since season is over. :S
2. Anime, Games, etc. Just abt anything conceivable under the Japanese radar barring anything and everything Rule 34. Now that's illegal. Period. -.-;
3. Music. Everything to do with it is listed under the tab.
5. Unacceptable humour: Anything and everything is fair game here. As long as I don't get rounded up by the ISA. -.-'

6.
The Known World=Fantasy world building in process. I: Used to be glossary, now devoted to random rambling; II: Character Concepts; III: Lore.
7. der Wolf=my Fictionpress account under the moniker Tsumujikaze no Soujutsu. A Ranger's Tale is hosted under this page. :)
8. New section now upped. Maybe I should also gun for upping A Ranger's Tale here since I do have this funny feeling that traffic coming to here is way more than whatever I'll get in FP.

Statement of intent: Everything said here is a figment of personal opinion, be it me or anybody commenting. I try to be responsible, but my parents=/=parents of the world.

@Druid of Luhn: Crap. Should have remembered far earlier to give you the credit for your CSS text box code. :(

A/N: But sadly, it seems that your CSS text box code has now been halved efficiency wise. :(

That most important note I should have added: Any images posted in this blog are NOT my own stuff. I got them from Google image search, I don't earn any shit by being a thief and liar. Those responsible for the pictures, rest assured that you all are great artists in your own regards. Sadly, we all know what limited space means in terms of posting.

Latest Note: Changed alignment for my page widgets due to my worry that I can't centre align the thing.

Note on A Ranger's Tale: In case any complaining fella wants to have a legal case with me, let this be known that A Ranger's Tale is rated M by default. I've upped the swearing and somewhat a bit on the dark/gritty factor. You all have been warned, let no little boy and girl enter the forbidden realm.

Latest on ART: A Ranger's Tale now starting to kick back in gear. But I really hate the insanely fluctuating climate here in S'pore.

P.S: Oh, and one more thing. Vid below is yet another ideal OP for A Ranger's Tale.

So to commemorate National Day...

Even though it's already past midnight, let me pull this out of my ass.

Lore: Racial Mechanics within the Northern Continent

INTRO: The Northern Continent. A land where all Causaceans call home. Separated into three factions, namely the Kalaran Empire, the Kingdom of Teutonia and the Republic of Slarvea, it has seen its own fair share of immigrants due to exploration and the resultant reliance over time. Across the Great Gulf came the Cinha people equally fair and from the Southern Continent came those bearing dark features known as the Tamurians and Sudhlits. Histalonia was the only Human nation never having its own being seen as such, for business has been just that. Business.

Causaceans
Features: Well defined with high cheekbones, the men generally have square faces compared to their womenfolk who possess a far more delicate visage with a sharper chin. They are a people with fair complexion and most widely known across The Known World as well.

Build: They are generally taller than the other races ranging from stocky to a lean build. On an average basis, the men will reach between 1.7m to 1.8m with certain exceptions towering unto the 2m mark. The womenfolk would vary far more ranging between a petite 1.6m to 1.8m. But no more than 1.8m itself.

Cinha
Parallel

INTRO: Hailing from the Cinha Confederation, these are the people most well versed in politics and economy. Hence as such, a lot of their warfare are based on a defensive long term planning where siege warfare extending beyond two warring states has become a lynchpin within their military history. Within the Kalaran Empire, they are mostly seen as shrewd merchants and even rumoured as political advisers within the higher ends of the nobility. Within Teutonia, they are seen as stewards in charge of the everyday affairs in the respective noble houses. Slarvea itself however held an indifference for them apart from business associates.

Features: Having oval features with wider cheekbones, both genders have almond shaped eyes of varying sizes. Fair in complexion, yet different in nature to the Causaceans, their features are considered more delicate especially the women.

Build: Lean in build, the men are generally more athletic compared to the women who are slimmer in comparison. Both genders generally won't go beyond 1.8m with the average height being near 1.8m for men and no more than 1.7m for the women. In addition, the womenfolk are known to be curvaceous.

Sudhlits
Parallel

INTRO: The Southlands is generally an arid region with numerous oasis scattered throughout. Engaging in tribal conflicts, it is the tribes bordering Tamuria who have dealings with the North. For they have established a mutual peace agreement with the Tamurians, who have been known to feud against their far more belligerent cousins. Warfare wise, they were exceptional archers and charioteers. Culturally, the Sudhlits are great musicians, dancers and singers. Hence, they are seen as such within the three Causacean factions with the Slarveans having a far more insidious interpretation, which all know of.

Features: Sharp and well defined features are a common fixture for both genders with the womenfolk being far more delicate. The men are compelled to leave well trimmed moustaches upon the age of twenty and above while their women are renowned as being beautiful with their captivating eyes and petite figures. Complexion wise, they have the darkest colour out of the rest.

Build: The men are wiry with a height towering around 1.8m. The women, however are far more petite with an average height below 1.7m.

Tamurians
Parallel

INTRO: Situated within the Central Belt, the region of Tamuria is that of a total mountain terrain. Trained at birth to wield sword and axe, the Tamurians are unrivaled experts in hit-and-run tactics due to their constant history of war with the Sudhlits apart from those within the far more fertile region nestled at their kingdom's border. Within the Empire, they are often hired as mercenaries entrusted with scouting and assault duties. Teutonians tend to grant them a higher status of respect due to their needs being far more military-based. Hence, the noble houses will always allocate a portion of their men-at-arms for the duration of their contract. The Slarveans will always see them as brothers-in-arms due a similiar code of honour in war despite the Tamurians despising anything to do with ballistic weaponry that the Slarveans so pride their own cavalry tactics in.

Features: Long features with a square jawline. Such are their menfolk while their womenfolk have a heart shaped face with large eyes. Their complexion is a medium shade of brown. Incidentally, Aeranath has the same complexion.

Build: The Tamurians are more heavily built due to them being a mountain dwelling people. Yet, they are able to move swiftly and effortlessly across any mountain terrain even with forests as part of the equation. Such was their training at birth. The women are of a more delicate built with a height around post 1.7m, but seldom reaching 1.8m. The men on the other hand can reach a whopping 2m although they will be mostly 1.8m to 1.9m. Still a scary people to mess around with.
