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

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

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
How Sequels Took Away From ALIEN's MysteryHow Sequels Took Away From ALIEN's Mystery3 years ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This
What is the Alien?
I love science-fiction.
The fact that I love science-fiction is a defining aspect of my character. The genre has influenced all my creative works whether what I write is of the same genre or not. Novels such as George Orwell's Nineteen Eighty-Four and movies such as Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey have played a large part in defining my views of fiction and film. Orwell's novel presented a terrifying look into an alternate history where a totalitarian government had taken control of every aspect of life. That was science-fiction as a platform for a message. Stanley Kubrick's film is art in motion, using science-fiction for an abstract study of man's intelligence, evolution, and what lay in the future. These proved that science-fiction could be more than the space operas of Star Wars and Star Trek which, while entertaining, didn't touch me on a psychologica

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

Love PoemsDo you love me?Love Poems9 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
Or do you not?
you told me once, but i forgot.
So tell me now, and tell me true, so I can say that I love you.
Of all the guys I've ever met, you're the one, I won't forget.
And if I die before you do, I go to heaven and wait for you.
From the moment I saw you i knew this was true
So damn beautiful my eyes fixated on you.
I wanted to hug you, hold you so tight,
I wanted to tell you this feels so right.
Now i have a voice, my feelings out loud,
A smile on my face so happy and proud.
A girl with a dream and a dream come true,
A girl who has found the one, the one is you!
When I first saw you I was afraid to meet you,
When I first met you i was afraid to kiss you,
When I first kissed you I was afraid to love you,
and now that i love you i am afraid to loose you.
Love is like a river, or maybe a deep blue sea.
Love flows on forever, always and endlessly.
Love is something special, something you can't touch or see.
Love is amazing, this thing I feel for you and you for me.

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
