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.

Lore: The High Realm of Teutonia (Part 4)

Cont'd from Part 3...




HENCE WE SWORE THE OATH OF OLD WAYS AND GLORY
Teutonia is arguably the only Causacean faction still remaining true to their ancestors' ways. While Kalarans are allowed absolute freedom in individual beliefs and the Slarveans subverting every word into nothing but military brutality, the Teutonians choose to stay their pride. Straying from even a single word constitutes to craven conduct, an offence tantamount to high treason.

There are three aspects of the Old Ways, namely the Common Way, Chaste Way, and Iron Way.

The Common Way
This is every commoner's duty to authority. As Teutonia is a realm ruled by feudal lords swearing fealty to Anglsax and the High Lord, this will always be a two fold system. Crown's Fealty demands all (including feudal lords) to bend the knee before the Seat of Kings, throne of the High Lord. For the commoners, this would be the Common Way. All without Deeds and Title are deemed commoners.

Hear ye, Fellows of mine!
Herein I proclaimest the Common Way.
Greed willn't claimest myselfe, merit be my path.
I shalt not shamest a lady, I shalt be honest true.
I am the wheat of Old Ways, my work hast begun.

The Chaste Way
This is every woman's obligation to traditional values. By this law, all womenfolk must get themselves married once they reach sixteen summers. Failure to do so will invite ridicule and humiliation to an entire family. There are two aspects to the Chaste Way, Fidelity and Piety.

Fidelity: Every wife must remain loyal to her husband, every maiden betrothed must prove herself a virgin once any word of question arises. Before that however, her parents must swear upon her life and their honour that their daughter is indeed one.

Piety: Every son owes his due to the Crown, every daughter to her father and mother. This is not to say sons have the right to disregard their parents, but rather correct priorities placed on the correct pair of shoulders.

Hear ye, Sistren of mine!
Herein I proclaimest the Chaste Way.
Fidelity is my shield, Piety my armour.
I shalt not shamest my bedchamber, my father and mother provest this.
I am the flower of Old Ways, my servitude hast begun.

The Iron Way
Iron, an element associated with steadfast loyalty and unmovable honour. This is every man's oath sworn once knighted. Since only male members of nobility can be knights, 'tis only right to expect a lot more.

Firstly, those subjected under the Iron Way must swear undying devotion to martial excellence. This is the Oath of Arms.

Second comes the Oath of Chivalry where protecting any woman's honour is the only acceptable way. While every Teutonian has to obey the unspoken rule of chivalry, only a knight can have the power to execute any offender on the spot. Indeed every knight is encouraged to do so, for 'tis part of their lofty station.

Last but not least, there is also the Oath of Honour. Every knight should never shirk from a challenge, for challenging a fellow noble means denying his family's ability and/or integrity. Every slight must be repaid, ten times more if necessary. The victor shall decide his terms, the vanquished awaiting his end.

Hear ye, Brethren of mine!
Herein I swearest the Iron Way.
I shalt fightest only the strong, 'tis my Oath of Arms.
I shalt protect all ladies, 'tis my Oath of Chivalry
Knowest no retreat nor be a craven madest, 'tis my Oath of Honour.
I am the Shield of Old Ways, my sword is keen.
My armour nigh unbreakable, 'tis my only fort.
Yea indeed my war hast begun and will never endeth.

To be cont'd....
