This lesson is going to focus on adjectives and adverbs, because I've only been tossing in descriptive words occasionally throughout these lessons. (And it was harder to create that I realized it would be. Forget learning new languages, I may have to go back to school to relearn my English!)
Like the lesson on verbs, the lesson will be in regular text, round brackets will surround notes from me, and square brackets will be around direct "lesson quotes" from Karen Traviss' Grammar Guide. (Which can be found on her webpage, and I highly recommend downloading it for personal use.)
(Working from a list of common English adjectives and adverbs, I have compiled these lists I will have obviously missed words in the dictionary, please just bear with me.)
[Adjectives and adverbs are formed by the addition of the suffix -la or -yc, depending on which makes pronunciation easier. There is only one form of the adjecti

I want to center this post around verbs (conjugating and tenses and the like) because I haven't focused on them the way I should have with the other lessons. Since I was learning myself, it was a lot easier to start with nouns, and learn to rattle those off first, instead of slowly building sentences and workable conversation.
The lesson will be in regular text, I will put round brackets around notes from me, and square brackets around direct "lesson quotes" from Karen Traviss' Grammar Guide. (Which of course, can be found on her webpage, and I highly recommend reading it.)
Similar to most European languages, Mando'a verbs end in either ar, er, ir, or, or ur. Removing the r from the verb produces the stem.
(This is something I think I was forgetting when I tried to conjugate my verbs in previous lessons. Oh, how fun it is to teach oneself. KT could probably make a fortune offering a cla

Seek the DarknessSeek the DarknessSeek the Darkness1 month ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Seek the darkness,
Fly from the light;
Find shelter in the shadows
In the backstreets and the wood.
The living dwell in the daytime hours,
They shun and fear the night;
They believe that the darkness
Holds some things that are not good.
But they will never know.
Into the darkness, they never go;
But we think they should.
Final BattleFinal Battle2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Stand on the fields of hell
Unleash your great roar
For the dark walls have fell,
We are at deaths door
Bring forth the light
Cast it upon the dammed
Ready your sword to fight
Destroy the foul thing,
That influences our once great land
Let the arrows fly,
Let them cast out the sun
Let them cover the sky
Until the battle is done
Set thy beasts upon thy foes
Let them herald blood
Watch the dammed flee like frightened does,
As they watch their kin die in mud
I once thought the darkness my savior,
But now I see clear why I must fight
It was only serving me for its favor
I will lead the forces of light!
So if you will fight by me,
If you will stand by my side
mount your horse,
And we will ride
Draw your sword
We set our course
For the death of the dammed is it's own reward
We will ride well!
Past thy foes who fell!
Savor your last breath!
For we ride now,
Into the jaws of death!
Into the mouth of hell!

Guardian at the GateGuardian at the Gate2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Where you fell,
Is where I stand
In this hell,
That was our land.
Thy dammed foes
From your high mound,
Deliver bloody blows.
Until I fall,
On this field,
Until I enter, god's holy hall
I will not yield.
You think you can best me?
Then draw your sword,
And we will see,
Who will meet thy lord.
I stand alone,
In your path
On sturdy stone,
Feel my wraith!
I stand ready
I stand steady
You leave threats at my ear
But at the end, of this mountain hall
When you draw near
Only you, will fall.
So come to me, under this darkened sky
Filled by anger, driven by hate
March to me, meet your fate
A bloody death from the Guardian, at the Gate.

CIS vs GAR WarshipsCIS Warships vs. Republic warshipsCIS vs GAR Warships7 years ago in Philosophy & Perspectives More Like This
The Republic seems to have the advantage in capital ship combat, but the CIS has some equalizing advantages.
Many of the CIS warships are designed for mass production, and were designed for business scores not a full scale war. Many of the CIS leaders were cheap, and wouldnt spend the money for a traditional fleet. Only the Providences seem to be specifically designed for combat. The Lukrehulks are simply converted freighters with VERY strong shields and some turbolaser offensive capability., but with the sheer number of Turbolasers and the shield power added, with the fighter and troop compliment, a Lucrehulk is much a more battle-worthy ship than a carrier like a Venator (why it takes a flotilla to take them down). That's not bad at all for a converted ship, isn't it The Recusants are mass-produced destroyers. The Munificents are originally used to harass worlds heavily in debt, guard treasure vaults, and transfer finan

would you lay down your life?would you lay down your life?2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Battle fields ahead; this war was not meant to be.
A sudden surge of anger though released all liberty.
Standing before the anger; an icy, cold stare.
Will you lay down your life, into deaths angry lair?
Bitterness and sorrow flow, mingled in the blood.
Screams of pain escape and through the air they flood.
Cold and merciless foe’s; they fight just as hard.
Will you lay down your life, under the sword’s shard?
The clash of sides in disagreement; fear hangs nearby.
The wounded drop to the ground; some, a deathly sigh.
The battle is long, it wears people hard and through.
Will you lay down your life, as others did for you?
Reaching down a hand, soldiers grasp this chance.
Healing can be done though most get no second glance.
Back to the battle; smoke and loss fill the air.
Will you lay down your life, as others have done there.
The fight is drawing nigh, many people are gone.
There is no time though to gather dead or sing song.
A victory is to be decided now; the battle conti

MASS EFFECT 3 ALTERNATE ENDING *SPOILERS OBVIOUSLY*
**EDIT** Holy crap this got way more attention than I was expecting. The comments and support have been amazing everyone!
A few points: Credit where credit is due; this ending, as much as everyone seems to love it, was only created because the amazing team at Bioware created a universe that was so rich and full of life and detail. As much as I know a lot of fans are hurt by what they did, we need to remember that Bioware still created an incredible trilogy, one of the best ever. So hats off to them all round.
Also, this was written really fast and so the ending (specifically the last part on how you actually win using TIM's signal) isn't very fleshed out. I know there are holes, and they can actually be fixed quite easily. This isn't perfect. Also, this doesn't deal with a 'happy' ending. If there were to be one, or you were to even CONSIDER taking the fourth option, you'd need to be damn ready. I'm talking ALL war assets e
