Bear . Wolf, eagle. Always these beasts could turn the hunter into prey. Hurron knew this, it was a knowledge his father taught him well on his first bleeding of the snow.
Up in the cold you keep these three rulers in mind at all times, especially at the winters end, for wolf is still rabid with winters hunger. Bear awakens from its slumber sharing the same thought as the wolf, and northern eagles, they are always a threat. In time, they learned to wound their prey and watch it bleed to death. Yes, three ruled the mountains, but on the day of bleeding of the snow, they were all prey

Part I (1979 2024)
1979 - The Gydranics, race of tusked reptilian aliens, start working on their new plan to finally defeat their nemesis, the Mehrksis, peaceful metallic centipede-like creatures. Said plan is to create kaiju, which have been created in the past but were either forgotten/abandoned or dead. Despite some of them's warnings, they continue their project.
* The Gydranics and Mehrksis war, dubbed The Eternal War, has been going on for quite some time. The conflict is about the planet's resources, which are ironically getting exploited too much for the war. While the Mehrksis want to share the resources, thus live in harmony, the Gydranics want everything for themselves as they believe that they are stronger than the metallic centipedes and deserve it more than them.
* Supernatural events often occurred during the war, as if the planet itself was showing its sorrow. During a battle, it once started to rain blood which stopped th

#1: Repels are very important. Also, try to use a high lvl. pokemon so you can 1 hit KO the enemy.
#2: Keep radaring until you find the one you want as a shiny. Then Catch or KO it.
#3: The farthest patch away of the same type(Shaky or strongly shaking) grass gives the best % of continuing your chain. Talk to Dawn/Lucas for a few pieces of advice/hints.
#4: If you're chaining electric types, use a KO'd "static" pokemon in the 1st slot. Magnet pull works for Steel types. Also, a synchronising Poke is reccomended.
#5: If no good patches show up, walk 50 more steps and reuse the radar.
#6: Be careful at higher chains. Begin scanning br resetting the radar over and over. At 40-45 stop chaining and simply scan.
#7: You might want to only extend your chain off of shinies. This will net you lots of them and guarantee to keep you

Cybernetic Dreamin'_TextMy body may be deactivated and at rest, but my mind is wide awake. Finally I'm able to let my true thoughts manifest from what remains of my organic brain...my onboard computer programming (OCP) is busy downloading and encrypting new data and software. I don't see why Deuce hates it so much to have to undergo regularly scheduled maintenance and repairing such as this...I understand her point of view by her saying that it makes her feel even more like a machine being that we often have to watch the technicians remove various panels, wires, tubes, and even limbs from our bodies as we hang here suspended with even more wires and tube and such entering our bodies. Even worse for Deuce's sake, for some reason they often remove her head from her body completely moreso than they do for me...and that also gives me an eerie feeling, so I can see why she might hate that.Cybernetic Dreamin'_Text5 years ago in Science Fiction More Like This

There's pain like I've never felt before.
But when you feel pain – it just reminds you that you can feel.
Feeling equals life.
Something that I didn't think I had any longer – thanks to that bastard.
I would have gotten away with it too. Stealing from the museum was easy nowadays. I slipped in and slipped out with ease.
Granted, I had to kill a guard or two. But their blood against the walls looks so pretty as I jaunted through the hallways with my prize.
A glorious ruby. One that would fetch a good price on the Black Market.
Unfortunately for me, he met me outside.
A protector of this fair city. And my rival. He would constantly deter me from making any sort of profit whenever I managed to pull off a heist.
Sword in hand – he got in my way.
I drew my own and the battle commenced.
We are both very much equal when it comes to swordsmanship. A slash here – a slice t

Then nearly fourteen billion years ago expansion started. Wait...
The Earth began to cool,
The autotrophs began to drool,
Neanderthals developed tools,
We built a wall (we built the pyramids),
Math, science, history, unravelling the mystery,
That all started with the big bang! BANG!
Since the dawn of man is really not that long,
As every galaxy was formed in less time
than it takes to sing this song.
A fraction of a second and the elements were made.
The bipeds stood up straight,
The dinosaurs all met their fate,
They tried to leap but they were late
And they all died (they froze their asses off)
The oceans and Pangaea
See ya, wouldn't wanna be ya!
Set in motion by the same big bang!
It all started with a big BANG!
It's expanding ever outward but one day
It will pause, then start to go the other way,
Collapsing ever inward,
we won't be here, it wont be heard
Our best and brightest figure that
it'll make an even bigger bang!

Boy was about nineteen. A young man really, but his face made him look younger. Girl was younger, maybe fifteen, sixteen. Peter Bowen thought as he kept his distance considering the situation, studying the several people involved.
City of wade was under Arenian occupation for over three centuries now, and Arenian trackers seeking out mages to be drafted to their military force was hardly an unusual event. Most people who were learned in spellcasting kept their skills hidden, and their weapons were creatively concealed.
Still give it enough time and any trickery will stand revealed. Trackers were by now very skilled in noticing anything with engraved spellcasting spiral. A ring, a stick, the smallest of things. They knew what they were looking for.
This was what baffled peter as he studied the unfolding situation. Boy was blatantly wearing two short swords with the casting spiral boldly and prominently visible on their handles. Either he was a fool, of a foreigner who decide

It had been a trap since the beginning. She had felt it, but being among strangers she had not been sure they would have listened to her advice. Besides which, time being of the essence, they could spare no delay due to doubt.
Now standing in the midst of mountains of grain they were surrounded by creatures out of some nightmarish Ustalavian folktale, gaunt, skeletal men; their eyes burning with blue fire and their bodies shrouded in black cloth; armed with wicked scythes of clear keleshite design. A dark fog clouded the air and stole the sound from around them. The creatures' numbers doubled their own.
Jordan found it ironic that she had to travel so far from Canterwell, alla the way to Absalom in order to confront her first undead, but as she drew her longsword she decided that she wouldn't allow them to be her last.

Appearance: Okada Ayano, now a striking, inexplicably stunning woman at the forefront of Soul Society's military, was born amongst mortal men in the realm of the living--a jewel hidden in coarse sand. The patriarchal, sexist cultural norms of her home village manifested themselves in the men around her, who found her fragile voice irritating and her soft skin incapable of anything meaningful, confining her to the most basic family chores. They saw her as a piece of property, a girl lucky enough to be destined for prettiness in the way that would eventually attract a husband, yet poor enough that her dowry would be insubstantial and troublesome for any honest man to burden himself with. They saw her as a young girl with bright eyes that w

The death of DioDio died while killing the dragon named Lady Evil. He was on a quest with his legion of Neon Knights. They were known as the Children Of The Sea. But when he arrived, the dragon looked at him with her evil eyes. They lined up to fight the dragon; he was the last in line. The sight of the evil beast left him completely breathless. He instantly fired a rainbow in the dark. It struck the dragon straight through the heart, but by some mystery, the dragon lived. Then, the dragon attacked, and brave Dio was caught in the middle. He wanted to walk away or turn invisible, but all he could do was stand up and shout. The dragon smote down our hero, but the man on the silver mountain could not be defeated, for the Wild One was born on the sun, and he would not let the dragon triumph. And in his dying breath, Dio screamed, "Shame on the night!" as he sunk his mighty blade into the cold dragon's scales. He rid the world of a terrible beast, but the cost was his mortal form.

Swiftly and softly he moved through the trees. Approaching his next target with absolute silence. He knocked two arrows. The two patrolmen were facing away from him. He fired a quickshot at the first then in a split-second, shot the other as well. The only sounds were slight groans of pain. He continued on, not skipping a beat. He knew there would be more patrols so he knocked another arrow. This time there were 4 patrolmen and a watchdog. Interesting. He sprinted at the opposers, who obviously didn't hear him, and shot the dog first. He then pulled out his shortsword and killed the first 2 patrolmen. By the time the other two had turned around, Arcayus was already moving in for their demise. Another arrow flew through the air and hit another patrolmen. The remaining patrolmen, petrified, went for his radio but felt a sharp pain in his back. A thrown knife. Arcayus picked up his knife and continued through the thick vegetation.

Chapter 1- Destiny and Deceit
"In the beginning there was nothing. And from this unholy void, there emerged magic. Shoving outward, a pocket appeared in the void, surrounded by the magic that sustained it. Then from this great wavelength that surrounds all universes, the four emerged. These gods were Life, Fate, Time, and Death. All were necessary for creation and eternally keeping the void at bay.
The four built universes, expanding inwards. The closer they came to the middle, the more the four's power was split. The final dimension, right in the middle of the pocket within the void, was the Prime Material Realm. It is upon this final realm the four's power was perfectly even. From all the edges of the universe, all four gods were just as close."
He was a death knight, the most powerful being ever to walk the earth. He had mastered the black magic of necromancy, the art of raising the dead, and become the greatest paladin, the holy order of knights. Wit

Who sleep so firm in grasp of land.
Forsaken troops and paladins,
You rotten spawn of Satans barge,
Release a wave of plague and sins,
With specter horse, I mount the charge.

The mages float on vapors green,
And sound that bell for you it tolls,
To wipe your slates of spirit clean.

With carbon scepter in my palm,
