The mental manipulation of shadow and yes, this is very much an actuality. Since in our reality shadow exists only with some consistency of light, this ability is a brother to lumokinesis. Umbrakinesis is the manipulation of shadow by a means of emittion of a repulsive field and manipulation of obverse polarities causing the repulsion of photons from each other or from the individual. When this repulsion is induced the dispersal of light dims the area to shadow. Umbrakinesis can be linked in correlation to shadow travel, shadow + movement =’s a transference of energy or matter. Shadow travel is linked primarily to shamanic gifts, abilities that of a Shaman. Though this is not a law, many external to any form of shamanic path can acquire this ability. More information on this ability is to come in time.

In World News
A German airliner has crashed in the French Alps earlier this week, and as it turns out, the co-pilot is to blame. Yes, Andreas Lubitz, a German citizen, intentionally crashed the plane, killing all 150 people onboard. That's very sad, but I guess I understand his reasoning. I mean, I'd wanna kill myself too if I were a dude and I had a woman's name. But I digress. My prayers go out to those who have lost their loved ones.

The charge resulted from an assault on a female jogger on the Copeland Creek Trail on August 25, 2014. The young woman was wearing headphones and completing her jog at approximately noon when suddenly the defendant grabbed her from behind. The woman elbowed and fou

There are many things that an author will com across whilst writing, but not many beginners stop to think about the simple issues. I have come across three such simpl issues. I did not find these, however, until I had conquered my first struggles. Here are three more struggles that need to be overcome to make your writing better.
First is coherence. I never considered at first that what I was writing might not be understood by everyone, but that is infact the case. Not everyone will understand what you right if you do not put your complete thought. Such a simple lesson, right? It may be, but is still one of the most important lessons to learn. All authors had to or still have to learn this valuable lesson. If you do not put every sentence important to your thought, you may still be able to understand it, but others might not be able to. Coherence allows us to cover some of the most vague topics and it still be underst

Video games as 'games'I think we can safely say, and agree upon, that video-gaming is not a sport. Sports, in my opinion, require physical activity beyond twiddling your fingers and exercising the synapses in your brain. I believe that a game needs competition, and that competition must be an adversary of some type. This begs the question, is chess a game if you are playing against yourself? Well, I would argue, yes, because you are facing the adversary who just happens to be yourself. Fair game, I guess.Video games as 'games'3 days ago in Articles & Interviews More Like This
It's easy to view sport orientated videogames such as Wii Sports and Tekken or Street Fighter as games because they inherently take the forms of sport and apply them to the computerised world, thus taking out the 'sport' but retaining the game. So by that definition, game is form, not activity.
Any sports-modelled videogame still requires a competition-based form to involve yourself in the playing of: whether you are playing against your flatmate or
How to Pass All Your College ClassesI finished my Fall Term with a 4.0, and made it on the President’s List. How? I didn’t study for 20 hours a week like people told me I would have to do. I didn’t pull any all-nighters or cram anything. In fact, I studied less than I did last year!How to Pass All Your College Classes3 days ago in Articles & Interviews More Like This
So how in the world did I pull it off? Simple. I read the Bible. I kid you not. Here was my procedure:
Step 1: Wake up, go to bathroom if really needed, and start the day with a prayer.
Step 2: Spend at least 10 minutes reading/studying the Bible before doing anything else.
That's it. Before doing this, I was always stressed with my classes; always studying and hardly ever relaxed. In Math, I often got B’s and low A’s, but the workload was a killer.
When I started reading the Bible every morning, I had more energy; I absorbed the lessons better; and when I thought that I didn’t do well on tests (especially in Math), I aced them (ok, I got a 90% on two quizzes). I didn’t have to do

Blog 1: My First Troubles in writing.
I have been writing for over a year now. I really thought at first that this was going to be an easy feat. I soon learned that writing is not such an easy task that anyone could do it, instead it is a hard task that takes much practice. I started sometime in November 2013 as an author. I was only fifteen at the time, but I had gotten inspiration nonetheless, and inspiration needs to be used. I began typing on a whim one day; that's when i decided to begin writing my idea. I had no idea what I was doing or how to make

1) Hello and Welcome here! Please introduce yourself!
Answer: Hello and greetings from Ireland. I'm Sohaib. I play Drums in my band Scylla, A Black/Viking Metal band from County Kerry, Ireland.
The other members of the band are Hassan, who plays guitar and does Lead Vocals and Jack, who plays Lead Guitar (and Bass as well
at the moment).
2) Scylla: It's a mythological name, "Scilla" and "Caribddi", a sort of monster/abyss. Why have you chosen this monicker?
Answer: Yes, the name Scylla comes from Greek Mythology, from Odysseus's Journey, where he encounters two Monsters,
One named Scylla and the other named Charybdis, both on opposite sides of a narrow channel of water.
If Odysseus tried to get away from Scylla, he would move closer to Charybdis, and vice versa.
I am a big fan of Mythology myself and the Odyssey is a powerful story, one of my favourites, so that's why the name was chosen.

You are very welcome, it is my pleasure.
My name is Árpád Takács, and I am the male vocalist in Tales of Dark… We are a doom/death metal band from Novi Sad (Serbia), active for almost 13 years. By now we have two albums out (the first on Solitude Prod. and the second on BadMoodMen, both from Moscow, Russia), and we’re currently working on the material which is hopefully about to become our third full length.
2) I think that your monicker describes very well your music. In fact, every single song can be considered as a single dark and gloomy tale. What others meanings has got your monicker?
It could mean anything, really. There is no specific meaning behind it. I guess it depends on the imagination of the listeners, and that is what truly matters. The same goes for the songs themselves. I am not a storytelling type of a writer, my lyrics are rather just my rando

The name means "Black Cloud Of Death" in Greek Language. It was an idea of Alessandro, our guitar player, and this name married perfectly with the lyrics; the Greek Language gave that air of "mystique" that intrigued

1) Hello Guyz and Welcome in Italy! Let's introduce yourself with a small bio of the band!
Hello! Greeting to the Italian metal-heads.
The story of the band goes long ago, when the founder of the band with the same name, Smargroth, started as a one-man band around 5 years ago. After being a member of some other black and death metal bands, he decided it was time to make own music. The first album, The Arrival of Necrotronian was made and released as a one-man band with session members, but after the release, full band was formed. We started to perform the concerts over Slovenia for a year, and after that we made a pause to record our second album, Empyreal Cycle. Unfortunately soon after the release, the drummer left the band, seeking other opportunities in his life, so we are in a search for the new drummer for quite a while. The drumming style is very difficult, and not many drummers can perform it. While waiting for the drummer, we are starting to make the third album.

Are you agree?
