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.

Of Gods and Men (Part 3)

One rule tweak/upgrade: Terrain cards are considered neutral. By that, I mean any Terrain cards in play will NOT affect any players beyond whatever specified in the individual cards/Faction.

Factions define which part of actual mythology your cards hail from. At the same time, any deck can consist of more than one Faction. For now, I'll out only 4 factions, namely: Norse, Celtic, Mesopotamia, Goguryeo.

Faction bonus [plus a PC/diplomatic statement]
Every Faction will have a given bonus, be it based on whatever type of cards used or Terrain. Please note that any such bonus is only applicable to the respective Faction under a single player. On the contrary to what others might believe, I'm not gonna do some bogey system for OGaM.

This is due to racial issues=political correctness. tbh I don't have any problem with condemning racism, so please don't crucify me. Yet, whenever I think back on how Luis Aragonés managed to corrupt one entire nation unwittingly, shivers managed to conquer my spine. If even an innocuous monkey joke cracked by Roy Hodgson can become headline news, then we need to ask whether Andros Townsend was within earshot back then.

Fire and ice greeting all who dare, the northern ends of Europe is a treasure trove of bravery and strength. One of the earliest known seafarers, the Scandinavians had been much maligned due their abrupt invasion of Lindisfarne. If warfare is in every Norseman's blood, then surely heroism runs deep in his spine.

Notable traits: Highest number of Pantheon available; high Strength stat for Heroes.

Faction bonus
+1 Strength to all Units and Heroes if number of Mountains in play is equal or more than the number of friendly Units in play.

A lush green land beckons, a group of isles welcoming every intruding cur to his demise. The British Isles we are now so familiar with is nothing like its past. Populated by numerous tribes and clans, very little of their culture survive till this day. Yet, many a tale remains somewhat coherent, their show of valour and pride left intact.

Notable traits: Highest number of Heroes available; high Command stat for Heroes.

Faction bonus
+1 Strength to all Pantheon and Heroes if total number of enemy Units is higher than number of Forests in play.

Synonymous with the oldest empire known to man, the Akkadian Empire, Mesopotamia had long associated itself with certain famous civilisations. From the Akkadians and Sumerians to the Babylonians and Assyrians, this was a land rich in ancient culture predating the Bible. Euphrates was its head, the Tigris the torso. Now better known as Iraq, this was nevertheless the land which many still hail as a cradle of civilisation.

Notable traits: Strong Siege and Infantry Units; high Command stat for Pantheon.

Faction bonus
+1 Strength to all Units and +1 Command to all Heroes if Fort reaches below 50% life; +1 Strength all Heroes this way if number of friendly Units is below total number of Deserts and Marshes in play.

From the southern plains of East Asia hails a people fierce and proud, this was a civilisation believing every god to be equal just like how we now believe the same for all human beings. The term "Goguryeo" is the reason behind the term "Korea". Yet, not many outsiders actually understand why this is so. Founded by the great king, Jumong, Goguryeo managed to become the byword for Korean pride.

Notable traits: Strong Cavalry and Ranged Units; stats wise a jack of all trades, but master of none.

Faction bonus
+1 Command to all Heroes if number of Plains in play is higher than number of friendly Units in play.

To be cont'd...
