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. -.-'

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.

P.S: Any of the rest can wait for now b/c firstly, my head is feeling heavy atm. Secondly, a lot of things in terms of the actual A Ranger's Tale are still in planning/transition. However, there's such a thing called DLC, below characters are my ideal DLC characters (PCs ofc lah! DLC means playable, don't play play hor! Dearest Chan Ho-nam, I learn very fast one hor!)

Liao Yuanhuo/Zhao Yun
(Ravages of Time)
Kaim Argonar
(Lost Odyssey)
Seung Mina
(Soul Calibur 3)
Aozaki Aoko
(Mahou Tsukai no Yoru)

A/N: Yesh, you're all seeing direct mythological references here.
Vánagandr (Old Norse: "the monster of the river Ván") is another name for Fenrir, an infamous monstrous wolf in Norse mythology.
Die Schrei means The Howl in German. Or rather this is something patched up by this lobo obsessed in longzong minkia tan-boh-jiak.
Invictus is a short Victorian poem written by William Ernest Henley, an English poet.
Aurelius is a reference to Marcus Aurelius, last of the Five Good Emperors in Roman history.
Dolorous Stroke is an integral trope in Arthurian legends where an attack struck by Sir Balin against the Grail King, Pellam managed to maim him and doom his entire Grail kingdom into a Wasteland. The weapon used was incidentally the Spear of Longinus, better known as the lance piercing Jesus' side according to the Gospel of John (Note: the lance was basically an ordinary weapon, just that Arthurian legends enjoy playing tons of mystical tropes).
Brísingamen (from Old Norse brisinga "flaming, glowing" and men "jewellery, ornament") is the necklace owned by the Norse goddess, Freyja
Brynhildr is a shieldmaiden/valkyrie in Norse mythology playing a prominent role in the Völsungasaga (i.e. the tale which made Siegfried/Sigurd into a modern day icon for mythology)
Étaín is an important female character in Irish mythology best known as the heroine of Tochmarc Étaíne (English: The Wooing Of Étaín).
Scáthach is a female figure in the Ulster Cycle most famous for being Cú Chulainn's battle instructor. Incidentally, she is also the original owner of Cú Chulainn's famous spear, Gáe Bolg.
Mórrígan ("great queen") is another female icon in Irish mythology well known for her role in Cú Chulainn's life and his imminent death.

Might as well end this post with a song since I now got one in mind
